ignition problems

Hey so my 97 base 5spd recently started to give me troubles turning the key over to the first tick, it feels like it locks up and i have to wiggle the key to get it to turn, does anyone have experience with this issue? or even any guesses, anything would be helpful

also once in a while i'll turn it over into the crank position and have to hold it there for a couple seconds before the engine will start cranking, again anything would be appreciated. thanks

Re: ignition problems

for the second problem, i do have a larger 6-pack battery now (720 CCA) so would it be possible that with a different power source and a larger load on the cars electrical system (sub/cap/deck/speakers) that it could cause un-reliability in the starting sequence? is this a sign something with the computer might be going? ..should i be worried about this or is it simply an inconvenience?
