Im not to sure if this is the problem... But sometimes when i go to start the truck it take a second for all the lights on the dash, like check engine the battery light all those to light up before i start the engine. Also i giggled the key a few times and the truck cut off, not sure if that could be a back ignition? Bad Ignition Switch?

My opinion ?

Sounds to me like a bad ignition switch.

Ahh my Dad said the same thing.. It cuts out and if i put it in park it will restart, is there something lose in the ignition switch? it did it today when i pulled into a parking spot.. it just dies like someone shut the truck off but i still steer and use the breaks...
