You need to get the code read that is stored in the ECU. An OBD II scanner/tool will read the code when plugged into the port typically located under the steering column. Auto parts stores can lend you the tool or sometimes they can pull the code(s) for you. The code that is read will help diagnose the problem with your truck.
