Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer
When I turn the car off and take the key out the air vent fan stays on and drains my battery. completely random...doesn't do it every day. sometimes takes car days to die, sometimes takes an hr to drain. in fall I sprayed wd40 into the keyhole and worked it around....it lasted a couple weeks with no problems. replaced ignition switch, problem still persists.
This is most likely a bad BCM. That is a body control module. They control all the inside aspects of the car much like the ECU controls the engine.

Testimonial: "does a bad bcm fit in somehow with spraying wd40 into the keyhole and it working better? the air fan shuts off much more and it dies much much less. I was thinking of replacing ignition cylinder and keys. my main key is kinda worn and my new key seems to work slightly better, if at all. thanks for your suggestion :)"

not sure these are related. battery light is due to alternator failure. Oil light is due to oil pump wear. The oil pump may work OK for a couple more years. Replace it if it gets much worse (if light comes on above 1000 rmp). The alternator must be replace now.

Check the connecter of you battery. There's a good chance your battery connecters are loose, or another problem with your battery connecters.
