Jiggled the key around a couple of times and it finally started. Final time was with the truck running. Turned the key to off and the truck kept running. Got the spare key and had no effect. Drove to the dealership with the key in the off position. Truck would not shut off even at the dealership. The ran some diagnostics and said that they had to order a new WCM module.
Hopefully, this will fix the problem.
That's not an uncommon problem. There is a new vendor supplying the WIN modules now.
