Check for spark then check for fuel pressure. Repost with what you find and we'll go from there.

Check the Coil, and fuel pump, at the extremes its a Cam or Crank position sensor, also there is a small ceramic resistor block on the firewall which fails as well. other possible issues could be the distributor cap & rotor. hope that helps.

its the BCM ( body control module) . Just had mine replaced by dealership. cars not recieve "$749 for part alone my car would start and then shut off after two seconds. If the lights on the dash board didnt come on I knew it wasn;t goint to start and stay on

The BCM on these trucks doesnt control the start/run circuit
