Wow, that's a toughy. Perhaps there is some sort of ground to short going on. Other than taking it to a dealership or mechanic, the only thing you can do is change out parts and check voltages. There could be a short in the ignition switch itself. Has the truck ever been in a wreck? Have you had this vehicle very long? You can also change out the ignition relay and see if maybe its sticking. I wish I had better news for you. I hope this helps in some small way.
