After minor front end damage, the key will not shut off completely, and key is stuck in the ignition, which is causing the clock to stay lit, and afraid the battery will die. Is there any way to lock the ignition, and remove key??? The car will not lock as long as the key is in the on position with key fob!

replaced alternator, replaced battery. started little things over time that might be computer. Drove great across town. on way back started acting like battery dead. Than lights and gauges stopped followed by car not shifting and sputtering. pulled to side towed home. Initially restarted and ran but again nothing electrical was working.
I also noticed my left rear wheel won't stop spinning when I apply the brakes, when jacked -up on the jack stands, but all the other wheels do. And all the other wheels bleed the proper amount of brake fluid. when bled. Thanks
