Might be time to part out the truck and look for a new one, or find one at the junk yard and replace those parts. In events like this, it will be critical to find a tech who is very smart with auto electrical and get his advice. Could be expensive.

this is vey interseting I have the a similar situation. I noticed that if I turn the key switch on but not try to start it everything comes on. If I start it the following don't work: no gages or gage lights, no fan or AC, no power windows, it will not shift out of first. I am going to try something to see if it helps me to trace the problem but basically I think it is either the turnsignal relay or the ignition swith on the steering column. GM has a real gooofy way of transfering power through them and I found this same problem on a 2000 tahoe and it turned out to be the turn signal relay assemble was bad.I will let you know how it turns out.
