Make sure your vehicle's gear selector is fully in the "Park" position. And maybe the steering wheel has to be in a certain position too. Hope this helps.

I've tried moving the steering wheel and its in full park.....my truck doesn't shut off completely, and in order to do that I got disconnect the battery.. And the car key still stuck in the ignition....
