Default PROBLEM: says 'Key In Ignition' but it's clearly not

So when I park and turn off the truck, then pull the key out, it says "Key in ignition" when it's clearly not. When i step out of the truck and close it and try to lock it with the remote, it wont lock.

things i tried:
-turning on the ignition again and then removing the key again
-poking random pins in the key hole

So i would have to lock the doors before turning the car off... then manually lock the drivers door when i leave the truck. Do i have to bring this to the shop or is this a problem someone might know how to fix that i can try?

Thanks!!
-Andy

I think a trip to the dealer is in order, but you should be able to lock the truck with your other FOBIK. Since they have different 'codes', it will recognize it as being out of the truck ans should allow it to lock the doors. I know with mine, I can get out of the truck with the FOBIK in the ignition, and lock the doors with the other one.

Yeah, there is a problem in the ignition lock cylinder. It may just be a stuck tumbler.
