What makes you think it's the ignition switch?

Have you checked your battery/starter/alternator?

yes all electrical is ok,information screen on dash says start disabled when you unlock door and turn ign sw.on.this problem started when you turn sw on everything came on,turn key to start pos.nothing,hold in that pos for 4or5 sec and it would start,gradualy got worse,had to turn sw 3or4 times then one fine cold,rainy day info screen said start disabled.the key is worn so i think sw and chip is to.
