Trouble Starting 318 is

Hi, I've been having some trouble starting my bimmer lately, it began by a simple no response when turning the key to start, like if i wasnt doing my "anti-theft security". It wasnt that bad at first, I just shorted the starter to make it turn a bit, go back inside the car and it would usually work.

At the moment, it got really worst, now when i try to start, it does way more than just not starting, It does a small noise and I lose everything electrical, meaning it shuts down everything and even if I turn switch on/off, i dont get back any lights in my dash.... To get it back i think i could unplug battery... but still it does the same each time...

At first i thought it was my starter, I took it out and tried it on a battery... worked fine... had little rust on them, i fixed this before putting it back hoping it could be a bad contact. WRONG, still does the same &?%/ again...

Do you guys have any suggestion? My bro thinks it could be a bad key switch, what you guys think?
