Even my mechanic can't figure this out
Posting is in 911 because I have got to get to work tomorrow....

the other day, went to work and the truck wouldn't turn off. I figure the ignition key cylinder has gone out, so I pulled the 30 amp fuse in the distribution box powering the alternator and forced it to shut down. Replaced the key cylinder this morning, batteries are dead.
Hook a trickle charger up to the batteries, and the fuse distribution box starts clicking along with the starter relay. Dash lights and odometer turn on and off at random. So I pulled the 30 amp fuse again to allow the batteries to charge up. Once the batteries were charged I hooked everything back up and pop in the fuse. Lights on dash are on, no key in the ignition. Turn the key and it cranks, but doesn't turn over. Pull the key out and the distribution box is going crazy again, lights on the dash stay on.
