You need to find someone who knows electronics and can find a draw.

You have been taken advantage of with all the bad work.

You may be right. They may have jumped it backward at one time causing all these weird issues but none of them are related to the draw.

Car started I delayed before starting and waited for dash lights to come on is it possible that the ignition switch I got was faulty or damaged during shipping and handling because Castriorta Chevrolet wanted to replace that part but I told them I had done that and car still doing same thing.

It will be awhile before I have time and money to take the car to another place but if any new problems develope will get back to you did the other owner that was having same problem with their 200 Pontiac Bonneville ever resolve their problem? I only saw the post where they were having to turn ignition several times and sometimes took 5 tries to start car.

This morning the car battery was drained again, that's Monday morning January 17. The last time I drove car was Thursday January 13, to go to doctor have another Doctor appointment at 2:10 tomorrow Tuesday January 18. Started car and let it run for 5 minutes at midnight. I hope it holds until tomorrow I will try to start again around noon and let run 5 minutes if it starts otherwise will wait to jump it before Dr. Appointment. After Dr. Appointment I will take it to Andrews automotive to have that switch put back on battery so I can disengage the battery, so it won't drain. I will have to keep resetting clock and reset tire pressure indicator. I will keep you updated.
