Change the ignition. Take a pare of pliers, turn it back, then change the ignition.
if the starter is not spinning and the truck motor is running
Have you tried changing the ignition switch?
For a 1988 Mercury Marquis remove bottom shroud from steering column (5 Philips head screws). There is a wire running from the ignition switch to the left side of the steering column; detach it from the coupler (This can be done without a tool). Turn key to ON position until the panel lights come on. There is a small pin near the bottom of the key lock; push it in and pull the ignition switch out (don't panic if the wire seems to be stuck; it will come out). To replace, turn new ignition switch to same position. Push pin on the ignition switch in while sliding it back into the steering column. Reconnect wire and then replace shroud.
If it starts but doesn't stay running after you release the key from the start position, it means your ignition switch is bad. Not a huge expense.
Ask your mechanic, he would know better. But, there is a pin near your gear selector that is engaged when you are in any drive gear, park or neutral, as well as when your key is in the running position, start position etc, that is not functioning properly. The pin is in a state of "feeling" like you are still in any one of those positions and you obviously know that you can't pull your key out of the ignition while your car is running anyway. So this pin has your key locked in the ignition because it thinks your car is still running.
Cycle the ignition switch on and off several times pausing briefly in the on position. This will prime the fuel system.
The function of a stop switch is to cut the ignition so the engine can stop. If the switch is in the off position and the engine isn't running, then to start the bike you'll have to put it to the on position.
Bad ignition switch?
There is no such position in baseball. The running back position is used in American football.
Depends if you have the ignition running or just the say you left the lights on. If you just left the ignition on all night nothing will happen except just running out of fuel. If you left your lights on without ignition running your battery will die.
found this, might be the same, Merry Christmas, anyways! :) For a 1988 Mercury Marquis remove bottom shroud from steering column (5 Philips head screws).

Turn on the A/C and then turn the ignition to the on position without starting the engine. The fan will be running if it is good.
Radio Use when engine is not runningYes, use of the radio when the engine is not running will drain the battery. Also, IF the use of the radio requires the ignition switch to be in the ON position, then any other devices [such as on-board computers, electric fuel pumps, etc.] that are turned on when the key is on will also add drain to the battery.IF your vehicle ignition switch has an "accessory" position [usually one "click" counterclockwise from the OFF position, then only the accessories that you turn on, will drain the battery.
Possibly the keyswitch.
If you are hearing it while the ignition key is in the on position then it is the blower motor running on low speed. It can also be the air distribution motors resetting themselves.
With the fob in the car but without the brake depressed, push the ignition button twice to get to the 'on' position but the can not running. Go into the display menu using the left of the two button on the dash; select reset. trick..-ignition must be on
99 jeep Cherokee Laredo stay running after turn off the ignition switch?
Is fan set to the "on " position instead of "auto" position ???
remove the plastic coverings from around the steering wheel (3 screws on the bottom), turn the ignition to the running position and take a small screwdriver and move the pin up on the bottom of the ignition cylender and pull it out. dunno if my explanation is detailed enough... oh well.
Check to see if it has a rod coming out of the bottom area of steering column--controlled by ignition switch that may have become mal-adjusted or bent I'd start with the ignition switch....
Your problem is the ignition switch. Either the switch is bad or if the switch is mounted on the steering column, it may be out of position causing it to only energize the ignition circuit but not energizing the accessory circuits.
I had to do this on my 96 850, and no, I did not have to have it running, just on accessories on ignition.
