Default Ignition switch problem

When I turn my ignition switch off if I have the radio on it now stays on instead of turning off.The battery goes dead if it is left for any length of time. Would this be something I can fix myself or do i have to take it to the mechanic?I have put new ignition switches into my old ford truck it was pretty simple. Dont know about the Dodge however.
