Hey guys.. still having problems.. please help!

Hey guys.. wanna start off by saying I really appreciate the help that everyone has been giving me.. but still having trouble.. This is what is going on and what I have done so far:

What is going on:
All of my accessories stay live never shut down, and it keeps draining my battery.

What has been done:
Have looked for wiring issues.. found 1 wire cut in door jam.. repaired that.
Replaced the ignition switch.
Reset the computer.

Please someone help me!

I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 6 cyl. 4.0

Had the same prob. Turned out it was a worn ignition ....this meant the key came out in the accesory position ...as well the off position. The acc position is one notch back from off on these models (rather than the usual one notch forward)so easily done. Check that the key lines up with the notch when you pull it out. If you can pull it out in any position....like mine... its time to rebuilt/replace the ignition switch. Ill get around to it one day...its only been three years...and I dont like to rush into things!

Been told by a crysler dealer my battery problems are linked to a transmission problem, throwing up code P0700. I believe I need to replace my transmmision Solenoid.

Start pulling fuses until that accessory power's off. Then get a wiring diagram of that circuit and go to town.

I pulled my fuse 29 and everything works the way that it should now.. the fuse 29 is the rear wiper / motor. So I am going to tackle that soon.. With everything working right my wife said that she is satisfied with no rear wiper for the moment. I am satisfied because the battery isn't draining any longer. Thank you everyone for the help!!!
