So I'm riding with my buddy in his 02 Dakota with the 4.7 the other day and he asks me if I have ever heard of the key trick. Well he claims that with the truck running you can turn the key back ever so slightly towards the off position, the radio and all that will shut off but the engine will keep running. Then when the radio comes back on after a second it overrides the rev and top speed limiters. He said that this works in all Dodge trucks but the whole thing sounds like BS to me. Any of you guys heard of anything like this?

I have had stuff turn off with the engine running, but I don't think it ever altered the rev limiter or anything.....Probably safe to call BS?
