Default 01 ram key on and starts to crank?

I have an 01 ram 3500 with a 5 speed thats juiced up a little and has a command start it has been parked for a few months. When i went to it today it was dead so started boosting from another truck and immediatley the vaccum pump ran and the headlights turned on without the key on. when i turend the key to the ignition position the truck started to crank and if i went further ahead to the crank position it sounds like the starter is engaging and disengaging. and the smell of hot wires wafted throught the truck i thought possibly give it more time to charge and no luck. I looked through the wires and no obvious signs of burnt i also pulled the ignition switch off the side of the colum and opened it as far as i could but saw not that would make me thing it was shroting across. any ideas?
