My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.
This can be caused by an electrical fault with the ignition switch itself not turning off fully.If the key was to long or made incorrectly it may have damaged the cylinder or ignition switch as this would be the only thing I see that would cause this after a repair was done like this here.This will need tested/checked further to locate and correct the fault here.
Thanks Pete
