Do you mean the key keeps turning ? If so seems you will need a new ignition switch.

Probably the ignition switch, but possible the starter solenoid sticking. Please check to make sure you don't have a ton of stuff hanging on your keychain. The added weight over time cause wear inside the ignition switch and can cause symptoms like you're experiencing.
