Ok do you mean run as in keeps running smooth like ignition is on, or do you mean it does what we call 'dieseling' and chugs real rough at idle? The reason I ask is that 3.5liter V6 is a 290hp engine with an 11:1 compression ratio, and if you are burning regular 87 you really need to run premium 91. That will solve it, unless I am on the wrong track here and you mean it continues to purr like you never shut it off. That..is a whole 'nother ball game

I had the same issue last week with my 2012 Nissan Maxima. I was eventually able to turn it off but no clue as to why it happended. Called the service department at a local dealership and was told that they had never heard of that issue... No help at all!
