Thanks for the info on relearn will try
Here is something new I tried just because it is still cold and snowy here. I noticed when the truck would start it was always after sitting in the sun all afternoon and it was a bit warmer out. So this morning I went out with my hair dryer and warmed the ignition with it the truck started same thing again when I tried this afternoon once I wamed up the ignition it started so I am thinking the problem is in the cylinderlock

Yes, it could be the passlock sensor causing the problems.
