Several things have happened. Truck will crank and run then die along with power windows door locks and gages. Dome lights dead. Everything is dead. After multiple attempts at starting I get power again and while cranking it will completely die again. Try again and it'll run till I turn it off. I don't understand the complete electrical failure. Bad ignition tumbler?

Thank you Steve83. I had replaced the key tumbler and it worked for a few days until standing me at work. I got my multimeter out and started checking things. That's when I found a slightly loose cable coming off the passenger positive post. That was from a terminal I replaced a few months ago. Good terminal. Bad workmanship on my part. Thanks for the link. Very informative.
