03 6.0L keeps cranking after started!

Okay I just posted this in another thread but I thought I would start a new one...
My wife started the truck this afternoon with the remote starter and it is really cold here so I had it plugged in.. She said it ran for 20min and shut off (I assume because the starter only lets it run for 20min) then she went to start it again (with the key) and the gauges went weird and there was a clicking noise like the battery was dead.. So now I have the battery charged I turn the key to the on position for the glow plugs and it cranks over and tries to start, When it eventually does start it keeps cranking... I don't want to do that too many times because eventually it is going to wreck something... Has anyone experienced thi? I am at a loss and not sure what to do next..

when was the last time you changed your fuel filters? and is it making a cackleing sound when you crank it like it wants to light? sounds like a fuel pressure concern.

!

sounds to me like the remote start system is messing with it. When you try to start it it wants to keep trying to start it. As for the shutting off, some have timers on them.

Do you think the remote start will cause it to crank over while the key is just in the ON position? I know most starters come with a switch to turn it off but I can't seem to find one on my truck. Any ideas how to disengage the remote start?

I have seen remote starters go haywire and do all kinds of weird stuff.

I've also seen starter solenoids go bad and keep the starter engaged, running will get the starter hot and it may start on fire, I'd unhook the batteries and find out what you have going on.

Reason #2 why I'll never have a remote start.

I have had this starter a month now and I am thinking it was a mistake... My wife got it for me for christmas.. I will phone the guy who installed it tomorrow to see how to unhook it... Would the cold weather have any part in this? -30c here in Calgary today. This weather sucks

Okay Update:
I tore out the remote starter and all the fuses that go along with it.. Took it in and had the starter replaced.. pick up the truck and drive it and park it (New starter sounds great and starts like a champ) Go jump in and turn the key to let the glow plugs cycle and it happens again... It is trying to start in the Key ON position while the glow plugs are cycling... I don't even have to have my hand on the key for the dstarter to crank over and once it does start the starter keeps cranking....
I am now at a loss and can't figure it out... Any more ideas would be greatly apppreciated... I don't want to burn another starter out by running so I now have to tow it unless I can figure out how to get it going without the starter continuing to spin...
My wife is actually 3 days over her due date (having a boy) and we are down to one vehicle and I have already spent $1000 trying to get it going ($540 -Starter $400 2 Batteries) .. This is really starting to tick me off....

could possibly be a ignition switch. never really had one go bad in these but thats what it sounds like.it sounds like you are gettin power to the starter when the key is just in the on position. that would be the next step i would take.
