SOURCE: Car wont start for a few minutes, then starts and runs fine.

Try using an OBD II diagnostics tester to see if there's a fault code stored in your pcm, if you don't have one you can purchase one at most auto parts store's, some auto parts stores will do this test for you at no cost, one for example is auto zone, this should tell you what the problem might be. Good luck.

SOURCE: when i lock the door with the key a security light

You must use one of the factory keys.. A copy will not work. The key has a transponder that talks to the security system in the car and validates the proper key. If this is a factory key there is a problem with the pickup ring in the ignition or some other part of the drive authorization system (or whatever Nissan calls it) that the dealer will have to look at.

Truck start but nothing else work inside

What do you mean nothing else works ? interior lights , radio instrument cluster lights etc. The alarm light flashes while truck is running ? Let's be a little bit more specific if you can !

The accessory delay relay supplies power (B+) to the driver master window switch . This relay is located in the central junction box ,under dash panel right side . An this powers the windows , the instrument cluster energizes the relay .
Interior Illumination is controlled by same relay .

Dash lights blinking right after start up

Does it seem like it's losing power? Headlight and interiors dimming down? Seems like it would be the alternator either going bad or already gone

Check engine light flashes car won't start

you can get the trouble codes out by turning key on off on off on then watch the check engine light it will flash a number of times n pause this will give you codes to take to the auto parts store n tell them they will know most of them the service writer at the dealer can find the rest (example) blink blink blink pause blink blink =32 there could be several so do it a couple times to make sure you get them right and get them all

What fuse controls the overhead interior light? When I start my car, the light blinks in and out for anywhere from 1-5 minutes.

The courtesy fuse marked ctsy in the fuse panel. The condition you relate sounds like an intermittent short in the interior light circuit. Check the door jamb switch in the drivers door, the wire might be touching metal inside the pillar.
