Default Starting problem

My PT wouldn't start and it appeared to be the starter. I replaced it but now I am still having a problem. When you turn the key it doesn't always start so I need to find the "sweet spot" to start it.
Is this the ignition switch? If this is changed would I also need new keys?
Thanks in advance.

That sure sounds like the 'Ignition Switch' and/or 'Actuator Pin' is your problem......The 'Ignition Cylinder' is what the key fits into,and if replacing it you don't need to replace your keys,if you change the new tumblers to match.

But that probably not the part you need. You should look at the part that the wires plug into. Had to replace this on one of mine.
