    I just bought the same truck and it did the same thing to me the other day. I turned it off and on three times and it went back to normal. The truck seems to crank over slow so we check the battery and found that it was only at 10 amps. The bought a new battery and the problem hasn't come back since. Check your battery with a meter. This may not be the correction, but has been fine with mine.
