Check it using an ohmmeter going from the BAT terminal to the other terminals with the key in the off position. If there's continuity to any of the other terminals then it's shorted internally. If it tests ok then it's in the wiring. Are you sure you don't have something wired wrong at the fuse box. Try removing the blk-green wire that's on the ring terminal of the ignition switch and see if it fixes it.
