I just bought a 1998 Chevy Malibu LS and after a couple of days my odometer light and radio stay on after I shut of the engine I tried replacing the ignition lock cylinder and even tried bumping the shifter knob and these did not work is there any other
suggestions? Please and thank you

if everything as factory condition with OEM radio installed then problem mostly by ignition switch. meaning when shutdown and key at off position it is actually still at accessories position due to bad contact at the electrical part of the ignition switch. this can be tested by multimeter. first check the move of gear lever does it sit firmly on "p" position usually this causing the key not to turn off the ignition completely, you can notice when key is difficult to remove from the tumbler.
