Sounds like the start switch needs replacing. If there is a solenoid in the circuit, that would need to be checked also.

Thanks alot for your answer.I have also noticed that this problem happens only when I am using the spare key which I have copied latly.Could the spare key which is not an orignal one can cause this problem?How can I be sure that the spare key is the real problem or the ignition switch?

I am not up on the chips that are in the keys now a days, but if the original key does not cause any problem, then suspect the new made key.
