Starting Problems

99 F250 7.3. I went to start the truck and when the key got to the "on" position the starter engaged. I hadnt turned the key to the start position yet. The truck will start but the starter stays on. I've checked several things and noticed that the curcuit that engages the starter runs from the ignition switch to the transmission positon switch and then to the starter relay. If the position switch went haywire would it keep the circuit closed?
Because if I put the truck in gear it wont start, only in park.

I've already replaced the ignition switch and starter relay, any ideas?

I replaced the ignition switch before anything else and I still have the same problem. There has to be something else causing this
I'll give it try this weekend and let you know. I can't think of anything else it could be.
It turned out to be the DTR after all. I guess something inside it went haywire. I forgot to post this back when I fixed it , but maybe it can help someone else.
