    I have a 1997 Dodge 3500 Diesel truck
    When I go to turn the truck off and take the key out it still runs
    If I play with the key turning it off and on it will final shut off. It make take a hour or so before I can get it to turn off
    Has anyone had this problem

    My dad used to have a '96 F150 that you could turn on without the key. Seems if the steering wheel wasn't locked this could be done. Not that this probably helps.

    Does it have a remote start? When I tried to install one myself on an old truck, it stayed on whem I turned off the key.

    maybe your ingition switch is bad? or your fuel cylinoid is not shutting off.

    Thanks Dave

    I just found out from a diesel forum what it was.

    Thanks again
