can a bad ignition make car not go into gear/reverse on 2002 Oldsmobile Alero

the ignition switch is going out, but I jiggle until it starts. sometimes have to leave the key in it because it wont come out. Today it ran the battery down, jumped it off, jiggled the key and now it wont go in reverse.

Yes it could, there is an ignition circuit going to the transmission.
