Sounds like it's time for a new battery. Check the voltage to be sure, should be 12.3V or higher. If you can't have your local auto parts store test it for you for free.

It started fine once we turned it key to off the car still was running until I actually pulled key out!


Might be the ignition switch or lock cylinder then. Have your mechanic check it out.
