1996 Pontiac Firebird • 6 cylinder Automatic •

My ignition locked up on me awhile back when I got it to turn something snapped but it started then it locked up again the next day and it started when I went to turn off the car it wouldnt shut off then after that I couldn get it started at all. My alarm went off about five times that same night for no reason at all. So I put a new ignition switch in it got the key made still wont start. The ignition turns and cranks over without the key and it turns off in the on position and on in the off position. Also I put a new battery in it and it keeps getting drained for no reason. Could you please tell me what the problem is?
