Car Starting Problems

I have a 1999 Chrysler Town and Country that is having starting problems. For the past 8 months when I try to start the van in the morning I get the dead battery sound. Just a click with little more. All the dash lights come on as normal.



When I tweak the key and push hard, it usually starts up fine. After I?ve been driving for a while, it starts normally with no tweaking needed.



To me it sounds like the key/ignition switch, but could it be the starter, battery, or something else.



Any help would be greatly appreciated.
