Default Problems starting/turning over?

Started having problems with my '01 PT which was hesitant to start a few months back. Had the alternator, starter, and PCM replaced. The battery and electrical system checks out okay. Still having problems starting.
Sometimes it starts without problem. The past week or two it has had increased difficulty starting.
Turn the key, then a 'click.' It takes at least 4 times, with a maximum of about 12 turns, then it starts. Sometimes I have to take the key out, turn it upside down, then re-insert and try. (This may work every other turn if it doesn't start). Does anyone know what this could be? The mechanics I have taken it to are hit-and-miss.

Sounds like it could be the ignition switch. I probably would have started there first.
