Okay, my guess is that your steering wheel has jammed against the ignistion locking mechanism, and that you are jostling it a little when you get in and out of the car. Try moving the wheel left and right (it's still locked, so it won't move much) while turning the key. Hope that this helps!
It's possible that the shift interlock is either binding or getting ready to fail. Another possibilty is that the brake switch could be failing also, hence not sending a signal to the interlock mechanism.
Okay, this has happened to me several times. I've discovered that if you turn the steering wheel, the key will turn. Not sure why, maybe it locks up somehow, but it works for me. Good luck!

20 minutes or so.
Put the switch in the on position and leave it there for 15 minutes. Then turn the of the ignition, remove the key, and repeat it. At the third time after the 15 minutes, try starting, It should start.
This just happenned to me. I was getting a code PO300. It turned out to be the ignition control module. It cost 78.00 at autozone and only took 10 minutes to replace.
IF IT IS A 4 CYL YOU PROBABLY HAVE A BAD CRANK SENSOR OR IGNITION MODULE.
The ignition switch, or "killswitch," for a 1996 Chevy Cavalier is located inside the steering column. Replacing or repairing it requires disassembly of the steering column.
It depends on what engine yu have but on a lot of them it is under the coils. If your car has a dist it is inside.
see if the coil is sparking to the distributor cap
Leave the key in the ignition and let the anti-theft light flash. Let the key in for about ten minutes, and when the light stops flashing, the system is reset.
You need to turn the wheel (about 1/4 inch) to relieve the pressure while you turn the ignition.
