Default Delayed start 2006

I have a 2006 pt cruiser and this problem has gotten gradually worse over about 6 months. When I turn the key to start the car nothing happens for a few seconds then it will start right up. Sometimes it wont start at all and after truning to key back to the off position and trying to start again it will start up. So I turn the key and hold it, absoulely nothing happens, then out of nowhere it will start right up. When it first started happening it would do it maybe once at month but now it does it atleast once a day. I live in fl and I noticed when to car is sitting in direct sunlight it is worse, I may have to turn to the several times before it starts. Any ideas on what this maybe be? Took it to the mechanic and they said it was some computer that controls the power so I had that changed but im still having the same problem. Thanks in advance for your comments.

Lots of owners have had problems with the ignition switch. Not like the problems that GM has with their recall and the car shuts off randomly but problems none the less. You might have to change the switch and have it re-keyed.
