You mean, I think, ignition switch module, which is the location of the ignition switch.

It is important to know the symptoms of a part going bad. The signs of an ignition switch going bad is it overheating, no clicking when trying to start, the car has issues starting and running.

Failure to turn the starter motor. Flickering lights, especially when you touch the key. Intermittent power supply to the rest of the car.

Check your neutral safety switch on the transmission. It is either loose or out by a hair, that is why it work only some times.

Engine seized? Loose or corroded battery cables? Bad starter solenoid? Bad starter? Bad neutral safety switch? Bad resistor or reader (if so equipped) at ignition?

This may sound weird but check your wiper switch. I had the same thing happen in my toyota, the intermittent wipers quit working but the relay would still click like blinkers do, after searching all around I bumped the wiper switch by accident and the noise quit. Living in Nevada I use the wipers about once a year so I never noticed that the intermittent part had quit. If that is not it is is still some relay clicking on and off so track down the noise and find out what it contriols.
