Sounds like either the battery is bad or the battery cables either at the battery or the started has a loose connection. The reason I asked about coolant is it almost sounds like the engine is hydrolocked. Check the battery and do not assume it is good.

Hydro lock is when a cylinder fills up with fuel or coolant. Since liquid is not compressible it will lock the engine if this occurs. This can be caused by a bad head gasket or a leaking fuel injector. You need to determine what the problem is before throwing parts and labor at it. I think it might be a good idea if you got the truck to a trusted mechanic. Mr. Rhodes is a smart ass 12 year old that posts nothing but garbage on here. I am working to get him removed.

It the gauges began bounding all over the place when the vehicle key is on, suspect a connection problem near the battery. Possibly a fuseable link. If there is one near the battery jiggle it a little while someone tries to start the vehicle. If it starts then there is corrosion underneath the weather seal. You'll have to replace the fuseable link.
