After two or three attempt it get started and after moving some distance around in 5min it auto switch offed. And after that sign of power stearing not working in front panel starts glowing.
And in next attempt car starts in first attempt and power stearing sign goes off car runs normally. No breakdown whole day. In evening it also start in first attempt. But again next day same problem occurs.
I cheked car battery but it showing good voltage.

Welcome to 2Carpros, thanks for leaving a question, its sounds like it could be a fuel pump problem because they can fail intermitted, have you replaced the fuel filter recently?

Its sounds like it could be the glow plug igniter, I have seen were they work sometimes and not others. But on the new trucks it could be something else. Does the check engine light come on?
