The red light is saying there is an issue with your key. Do you have another gray headed key to try?

I don't have a grey (valet?) Key. the main key is black along with two spare (copy) keys. Never received a grey one with the truck. I did try all three keys and still nothing? The light fades when I turn it to the "on" position but lights right back up when turned back? (If that's relevant)

I ran your VIN and you do not have SKIM which is the programmed keys.. Have you tried disconnecting the battery for 5 min to see if a hard reset helps?
