Stopped at the store this afternoon and the truck wouldn't shut off. Radio shut off with the key but the gauges and engine jut kept running. Put a new ignition cylinder in the steering collum and same thing. Any ideas?

We had an old junky camaro with a hard wired electric fan that wouldnt turn off.

We added a relay to the fan set up and the problem went away. Do you have a poorly wired accessory that may be drawing power in a funky way?

An old gasser camaro and a modern turbo diesel have about... oh... somewhere around 3% similarity. they both have tires, they both have engines and transmissions... they both have auto glass.. am I grasping at straws here?

They both also have 12volt electrical systems.
They both also have wires of various gauges and load handling capabilities
They both have an assortment of relays in the electrical system.
They both can have owners that think they know everything and choose to be sarcastic instead of throwing out possible solutions to the OP's problem
Grasping at straws?

Our ignition systems also aren't electronic.. in fact, there isn't an ignition system. Wtf do you plan to relay.

I said nothing about an ignition system. I said electrical system.

In the case of the camaro the problem was the the owner ran a wire directly from the fan to the battery. Now realistically that shouldn't cause the car to continue running should it? Well it did.

I'm not saying thats exactly whats wrong with the OP's truck, just a suggestion of what kind of weird stuff is possible in these older vehicles that have been modified over the years.

Since no one else had anything to offer I offered up the only idea I had. What do you think is wrong with his truck?

Not enough information for me to determine. But thanks for the clarification on your original post.

OP.. how have you been shutting your truck off if the key isn't doing it? I'm assuming you pull the batteries? If this is the case, then when you reconnect the batteries what does the truck do?
