Communication error between PCM and IDM. Check your fuses. I think the IDM relay is one of the relays on the fuse panel. If so try swapping the IDM relay with the accessory relay.

So they are the same type of relay? I just take the accessory one and use it for the IDM?

What does the accessory relay control? Could I steal that and use it so I can drive the truck till I get one if that's the problem?

The accessory relay controls the power windows and radio and things like that. Yea, you can drive the truck with out it.

I'm pretty sure you have to get the relays from the dealership. They're about $13 I think?

Please explain.

Atleast that rules out any IDM issues.

Can you clarify the problem a little better? Is it that it won't crank at all with the key, or will it crank but not start and run?
