Question about 1984 Ford F 150
Just to clarify, I also have an 86 F150 standard exhibiting what sounds like the same problem. On my unit, power is still applied to the starter motor with the switch turned off. I'm reasonably sure that there is not a shorted wire.
????Is the starter switch on F150's spring loaded or solidly controlled by a rod?????
I am suspecting that it is spring loaded and the old grease and dirt is causing the switch to stick in the engaged position.
Thanks for any help.

Probably the bendex on your starter is jammed or the ignition wire is shortered somewhere

Do you have a Chip in the Key? if so that Could be the Problem,Ya see the chip is a resistor and if it looses its ELECTRONIC VALUE in its Case Resistance it wont start to test this Turn the Key in the ON posission then do the Screwdriver thing If it Starts Key is Good and Most Likely the Ignition (SWITCH) is Bad <<ELECTRICAL Side NOY LOCKEST SIDE For More Info Recontact Me

SOURCE: starter stays engaged
The starter relay on the fender is the most common cause of this condition. ,It is on passenger side feder in the engine compartment, it is round and the positive cable of the battery goes to it,

I had a similiar problem, I had a bad sensor at the back of the engine, it was connected by 2 hoses to the EGR pick up tube.
I unplugged the sensor and the car started, I drove it to the parts store and replaced the part and it ran great after.

that would be the throuout shaft faller (change the starter ) see if it helps if you hit the starter as someone else turns the key.

there is a solinoid that enguages the starter it is stuck tap the round cylinder that is atached to the top of the starter it should disenguage the solinoid if not try to hit it harder. dont beat it up though. it also may need a new starter.

It sounds like an ignition switch and or ignition switch adjustment problem.The switch should be located on top of the steering column about half way down.Be sure to use a good quality switch as aftermarket may not function properly.There are two small screws/nut that hold the switch in place.The mounting holes for the switch are oblong to allow for adjustment.
