Changed the key ignition in my 2000 gmc jimmy and now the battery light and odometer milage light stays on and drains the battery This all happenens when the truck is turned off. When the truck is running...

The ignition switch(this is the electrical portion) is out of time. It needs to be removed, reindexed(notched teeth on top of switch-rotated a couple spots) and reinstalled. When it is installed correctly, the tell tale lights will not be on, you'll have accessory and the vehicle will start in the crank position. You don't want any lights on when the key is out of the ignition.
