When truck starts key has to be held in start position for approximately 30-45 seconds. Then the truck will go ahead and run, but if shut off shortly after it runs on its own. Then I have to have the battery charger on to restart. If the truck runs until it reaches normal operating temperature, it can be shut off and restarted easily without charger. After the truck cools off I encounter the same problem. This problem occurred when trying to fix the windshield wiper. I found to wires hanging that I assumed were for the windshield wiper. I hooked one of the wires directly to the positive post. The insulation got hot and started melting. I have since decided that those two wires originally went to the mass airflow sensor. What do I need to replace or fix? I have so far replaced the rotor, distributor cap, coil, ignition sensor, and heat sensing unit. The mass flow air indicator was not hooked up when I purchased this truck.
