: Hmmm any diagnoses?

Thank you for taking time to read my thread. Here is the thing. I have a 90 535i with 234k on it. Just recently i got my alternator replaced and my starter less than a year ago as well as my battery. So i get out of my class today and get in my car and put the key in the ignition to start it up and nothing happens. All the electronic signs are good. Then i do it again and again and again and again and nothing happens. I then tap the gas pedal and turn the key and i hear the starter wanting to crank but nothing happens. Then i do it again and the car finally turns over. When i drive it down the road all of my vitial signs like electronic are good. I get home let it sit there and turn it off. Wait a couple of seconds and turn it on and it starts right up. So i turn it off and try it again and it doesnt want to start. Now i know this should not do it but what could it be cause the starter has not done this at all. It just started this the other day.

Might be the ignition switch.
