does problem ignition on 1999 grand prix drain battery

Asked by Jul 02, 2013 at 12:31 PM about the 1999 Pontiac Grand Prix 4 Dr SE Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My son has a 1999 Grand Prix.  The key gets stuck in the ignition.  We use the pencil in the little hole under the steering column to remove it.  But now, the battery is being drained constantly.  You recharge it (new battery) or just start and by the next morning its dead again.  Could the ignition be doing this?  Maybe the accessories aren't getting turned all the way off?  Would replacing the ignition help?

I think your onto something. You can't lose changing out the lock cylinder. You won't have to use a pencil anymore and you might even fix the battery drain in the process.
