If the locks are shorting out and kills your power supply, you have a short. Check all attachments for loose wires and bad insulation.

Security light stays on when car is locked with key flob or power door lock button kills battery but if you lock it manually light goes out,

The light is supposed to stay on, when the key is used the system is not armed, it should not kill the battery if the battery is in good shape. I suggest you take it and have the battery load tested.

I have a 1992 buick regal gran sport . i wanting to use it as a fwd race car. i bought it from an old lady does not know where the key is. i need to brake the ignition lock and wire it directly to a kill...

easier way to go about this would be just remove the lock cylinder would be alot easier than trying to break the steer wheel lock once cylinder is removed u can start car with a screwdriver or wire in push button if u want
far as kill switch goes hook that straight to the battery that will kill all power to car (must race tracks require it done this way too)

When I turn the key off, it is like disconnecting the battery.

Does the car have a battery kill switch installed with its alarm system? It sounds as though when you cut off the key it engages the kill switch which removes power from the vehicle when the key is removed and the alarm is tripped.

Keys locked in running car.

Use your spare key to open the trunk, pull the positive battery cable to kill the car, wait 5 minutes, re connect cable, try to open door again.
