I would suspect that you have a failing fuel pump, the fuel pump pressure is bleeding off due to a faulty check valve, this causes hard starting esp when cold or after sitting. The fuel pump is located inside the fuel tank, the fuel tank must be removed to replace the fuel pump assembly.

It does not have an ignition control module. The PCM (powertrain control module) fires the coil pack based on signal it recieves from the crankshaft position sensor and the camshaft position sensor.

It seems like you have a bad door switch. The switch is located in one side or the other of the door post. Using a continuity tester on the terminal end of each switch should show you which one needs to be replaced.You need to determine which one of the wires is the feed and which is the supply. Leaving the supply lead connected, put the ground clip of the connector on a ground and disconnect the feed lead. Put the probe end of the tester on the feed terminal and push the switch in - if it is good, the tester light will go out when the switch tip is depressed. It is not too difficult to replace, but you will need to be careful not to lose either of the wires in the door post - tying them with a piece of string will help to keep them accessible.

Check your head light bulbs, your truck has the dual filiment headlight bulbs one per side which does both high beam and low beam, 9007 bulbs.
If the low beam filiments are burned out only the high beam will work.
Also look into finding out if the headlight switch is gone bad.
The headlight module and or drl module maybe defective.
