My old car brain says it's either the ignition switch or the starter's solenoid.

How many miles are on the car? Is the battery in good condition?

410k miles.
Is there an option to test the starter with direct current?

Get the starter out on the bench before it locks up into the torque converter and really ruins your day

It sounds like solenoid sticking.
