Question: Car won't start

I have a 2004 5.3L V8 Chevy Silverado Extended Cab. My truck is doing something weird where it won't start, won't even turn over. It's done this a few times now. I even took it to a Chevy dealership and they said nothing was wrong with it. The only thing that has temporarily fixed it is turning the key from ACC to Start over and over again. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Happen to have an answer?
