And you do have the "enable aperture ring" option enabled, right?
No such setting on the *ist D, but there is "F stop other than A" which is already On

I don't know what to suggest next except that there is either an issue with the lens stuck wide open or the camera body not working

Does the aperture close when you turn the aperture ring and the lens is not on the camera

Also check if the aperture lever is not hitting something, perhaps the shield around the activation lever

Yes, that works fine. And like I mentioned, I also tried other M lenses to make sure it wasn't this particular one that was causing issues.
