Check your battery cables, could have the black corrosion problem on the battery or the cables connection.

I have a Teana with automatic transmission. And I had this problem. To start te car the shifter should be in "P" position....and sometimes the system does not recognize that. So now I push the shifter as far as I can from "P" (to the front of vehicle) with hand1 same time a turn the key (with hand2)...and start with no problem.

no ignition & no starting steering moving left to right you must replace steering lock assy
