seems when wet, or drive threw snow. when it sit for a few hours or over nite go to start irt the 20 amp fuse blows and causes a no start.but may go for a month before it acts up.
Will turn key and it is like no power from battery to starter, but have lights, radio, etc. Turn key again or sometimes multiple times, to no avail. Then, turn it one more time and it starts. Then the next 15 starts, no problem. Sometimes hot engine, sometimes cold.
UPDATE: 2-6-14; I sold the truck to my father. He changed the starter. No problems since March 2013.
