This problem could be the Security Module switch which is located inside your steering column. My truck had this problem for many months and the dealership would perform a diagnostic test and nothing would appear wrong. I ended up repairing my truck at home and saved hundreds of dollars in labor costs. However, this repair was a rather involved one which I wouldn't recommend to the average DIY home mechanic.
