May be the Ignition Control Module in the distributor, they can be checked. And no mention of the plugs and wires, what shape would those be in?

We changed the ignition control module I think and we did do a complete tune up. Another mechanic said it had to do with the ignition key to start the truck. When he wiggles the key the security light goes out and it starts easier if it's warm but if it's cold, still having problems. Thank u for ur help
