Question about 1991 Ford F250
Starter stays on the run position during cold weather starts until the starter burns out can not be shut off until the starter burns out can even the key out of the ignition and it still is in the start mode lots of grinding noises 3rd starter have replaced entire column and installed new ignition same problem
IT sounds to me like the solenoid is sticking. Follow the large wire up from where it bolts onto stater and the next thing that wire is bolted to is the solenoid.

SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank
the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

i think the battery is trash, and you could have killed the silonoid on teh starter as well. use a volt meter to trace where your getting power oand if your gettting power to the starter, not the main power but the ignition wire on it.
if you are the starter is bad, if your getting pnly some power there the battery is mor likely the problem.
It is also so easy to kill these systems these days, if you jumped it and hit the battery the wrong way or shorted it out, could be more then just a starter n battery.
make sure you test teh igniton side of the starter when someone is trying to start it. the cheapest trick in the book is tap it with a hammer, sometimes they get stuck or froze when they are going bad, i have seen that work more time then not
good luck and hope i could help

Most likely you need a new Ignition switch. The small "tickler" wires on your solenoid are staying on. You can disconnect the small wire from the Solenoid and then put a test light on it. Turn the Ignition to Start and see if the wire stays hot when you release the key.
Another problem you could have is the Starter has such a bad intermittent short in it, that it keeps the points welded together after the key is released from the Start position. You can get a starter Draw test done at some parts stores like Autozone or Oreillys to name a few, they do it free and on the truck.
Let me know the result please,
