look for the ceramic resistor block, it should be on the drivers side of the fire wall. when it starts to fail it will over heat and make an open in the circuit, then it wont allow the truck to start again till it cools down

Mine would take longer to start on a warm start vs a cold start and I fixed it by replacing the ignition coil. turns over now on second, great fix for 12.99!
