so you dont think it might be a short in the steering column....

Check if you have a silent anti theft system. Sometimes it goes on on its own. The truck starts for 1 second and then stops. If the security light blinks then your anti theft system is on.

Another issue could be the battery cable. Ensure that the cables are tight on the battery terminals.
