Re: wipers, locks, windows, radio have power all the time

It could be that you pulled the key out with the cylinder in the RUN or ACC position. The cylinders have been know to allow that to happen when they get worn. Double-check that the key is actually in the LOCK position; one way to tell is, with the key out, the cylinder shouldn't turn. If it does, you, er, pulled it out prematurely.

lol the key pulls out anywhere and then you can turn the chrome part of it all the way around but it doesn't start the truck.

You pulled the key out in the wrong position. Buy a new cylinder and take it and an original key from your truck to a locksmith and they can rekey the cylinder for your original key.

Re: wipers, locks, windows, radio have power all the time

I don't have the book for an OBS but is there a certain relay for all of those? It could be stuck.

No such relay.

So you can turn the key to OFF, remove it, the cylinder is LOCKED (won't turn without the key), and all the goodies still run? That sounds like a short in the ignition switch itself.

Yeah that is a bad ignition switch. Sorry didn't understand before what exactly you were saying. It is a 20 dollar part and a ten minute job.
