On some models if the electronic ignition switch fails or acts up or the electronic steering lock itself fails or acts up this will cause this issue here.If these have not been checked or tested at all this needs done and if one is found to be at fault the affected component needs replaced.

It does sound like an issue with the switch itself or possibly a fault with an ecu that is sending false signals needing replaced.If the switch needs replaced there is a chance this may cost around $1000 in some cases or if an ecu is at fault over $2000 in some cases.The steering lock is usually cheaper around $500 to be replaced.
