Often times this is the key or the battery in it has died or weak do you have two sets of keys does the truck act the same with both keys? Another problem we see is what is referred to as "logic lock" this is when a module has kind of a brain freeze, to make sure this is not your problem you can do a reboot of the modules and there network. You do this by removing both battery cables at the same time rub them together then clamp them together then go inside cycle your key through all positions and back to off then hook up cables positive first. This will drain all the memory in every module thereby forcing each one to start fresh and learn values, same as rebooting your home pc when it acts up. Try that, if problem persist we will look at your keys
