Default HELP

Hi I'm new to this forum and could use some help. I bought a secondhand PT cruiser 2000 reg 2l petrol and I'm having some trouble with it. Every now and again when I go to start it nothing happens, all dash lights come on and no fault codes are found. I can put my foot flat to the floor on the clutch and still nothing happens, but if I leave it a few hours it will start which is not good when you have 3 kids and are out shopping. Just hope there is someone out there than can help me.
Also my key seems very loose in the ignition barrel.

You could have solved your own problem. Ignition may be shorting out only making contact intermittently. When it doesn't start, did you try taking the key out and put it back in to see if it makes better contact?
