I have had a similar problem with mine, also 99 Sport. Cycling the window lock switch seems to cure it each time it does this, when it won't work hit the window lock switch then try it then hit it again. Takes a couple tries sometimes. Some kind of stupid glitch somewhere like the one that locks the stupid doors when the key is on.

I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.

The black engine cover just pops into place. Gently use both hands and place them under the front edge of the cover. Lift up and reach to the right rear corner of the cover and pop it up off the grommet stem. Do the same to the left rear. The plugs are on the REAR of the engine-the injectors on the front. Use the torx driver to remove the plug caps screw and gently twist a little and pull upwards. The plugs is a ways down. Make sue you use a good spark plug socket (the one with the rubber insert) that will grip the plug and not drop it. At a minimum use platinum tipped plugs. I touched the new ones up with some anti-seize lube on the threads and put a dab of die-electic grease in the plug wire tubes.
