Test for parasitic drain. Disconnect negative cable and use multimeter to complete circuit. Set to where it can read less than 200 ma. Anything over 50 is considered parasitic. Pull fuses one at a time to track down problem circuit (s)

Is the ignition switch itself turning all the way to the off position? Might be time to replace it
