UPDATE 7/4/10

Good news....I hope.

After midnight I went out to disconnect the battery again to see if that helped after a longer disconnect. Planned to try the PCM in the morning.

Got in the truck...still chiming and flashing between "damaged key" and "key in ignition" with no key in the ignition.

Being a little more than PO'd at that point I sort of jammed the key in the ignition hard a couple of started working. I've started it ~20 times or so since then and it "appears" to be back to normal.

Fortunately, all this happed in my driveway.

Driving from FL-AR-SC-FL starting today. I hope I don't get stranded in the middle of nowhere with a repeat.

Are there any diagnostics that can be run to figure out what may have caused this or are they going to need to look at in failed status?

Thanks for all the input. I really enjoy this's a great resource.
