Help my car keeps running for about 3 to 5
seconds when I turn it off, even when the

stays on sometimes when it sits overnight
the battery is drained, I had it scanned
came back something in the key switch
had it scanned again came back body
control module so they cleared everything
an told me to come back in three days to
scan it again after they cleared everything
so I took it to auto zone they scanned it
came back body control module but every
thing I've read or watched about bad bcm
they don't do what mine is doing, anyone
else have this happen or know what it
really is?

sounds like the ignition switch , search "parasitic drain " and jiggle the ignition while doing the test and see if thats the problem
