I had the same problem, and I will tell you what it is: the ignition switch and casing. The electronics behind it malfunction, I just recently got it repaired and it only ran me $320. Relatively cheap, and easy, but most mechanics will spend weeks trying to figure out the actual problem. Hope this helps!
