Sound like you need a new lock cylinder and key.

Just about a month ago I took the keys in and they fixed whatever the recall was for that then when my alternator went out the key got stuck in it and eventually came out with a little wiggle. But this is still draining my battery almost over night.


It doesn't sound like they fixed what the recall was for with the ignition. Take it back, and ya it is going to drain the battery until it can be turned to the off position.
