The truck is suppose to stop when the key comes out no matter what. I thought it might have been dieseling because of extreme cold temps (-14 degrees) in montana, but it is still doing it in 70 degrees in texas. I stop the engine by disconnecting the batteries and unplugging the alternator

defective ignition relay. Just a guess, imaginary. we could/should look up to see if such a device is in there and available. Will do this shopping for you if you are having trouble finding this item that I'm guessing is at fault (that MUST exist, and is faulty)---say the word go, and will start shoppin'
