I have a 2001 sable that began draining the battery overnight. I
changed the battery and then noticed what is happening. It seems like
the ignition switch is still on. When key is turned off and removed
the alarm still rings when door is opened, the radio stays on, and
when the electric locks are locked, they pop right back open. Windows
were left down some during rain, and I felt like lock oir window
switches may have shorted. But I dont understand what that has to do
with the ignition switch. Now I feel like computer may need to be
reset or programmed. Any advise?

Could be a sticky door-ajar switch. It's built into the latch. The
most common fix is to spray some WD40 into the latch, and open/close the
door a few times.
