Three possible issues:
Bad battery won't hold a charge or rapidly loses a charge.
Bad charging system/ alternator.
Current draw on the battery when turned off.
Use a multimeter to check voltage on battery terminals when it is running. You should see at least 13 volts.
Fully charge the battery for about 6 hours, unplug it from the charging system, and then check the battery voltage. It should be at least 12.0 volts, actually a bit higher.
If your ammeter can handle it, you could test for current when it is turned off. You want the reading to be 0 or very close to zero,
You definitely need to change all with a kit of : ECU, engine main switch, seat lock and you will get in the kit 3 new keys, 2 black and 1 red.The black ones need to be programmed from the red one at a dealer's workshop.Then store the red some place safe.
When you encounter this type of problem the best thing to do is find a fab shop that can reproduce the tube that was ripped away. I frequently did these types repairs when I was running my shop. It's not really that hard to do, you just need a lathe and some shop tools and a tig welder to fix it. If you have to pay to have it done it might cost about $100.00 plus you will need to replace the ignition that was destroyed. I feel for you, most likely did not catch the thief either. If I still had my shop I'd fix it for free for you. Good luck finding the fab shop you need.
