Pickup stays cranking without turning the key but won't

Customer Question

pickup stays cranking without turning the key but won't fire
JA: Is the car in "Park" or "Neutral?" Do you know if your car has a "wheel lock" feature?
Customer: park, not sure
JA: What year is your Pickup?
Customer: 2010 f150, fuel pump relay/fuse is good
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: cycling power. need to fix asap, i travel for work and am stuck right at the moment. looking for things to look at
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: trailer lights weren't working last night so I was tracing wires. fueled up yesterday and the guage didn't say full until a little while after i ran. drove fine last night. when you turn the key and try to crank, the pickup will stay cranking without me manually doing it
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Ford Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, do you have a way to test for codes? If you put the throttle to the floor and try to start the vehicle will it start?
