Boy, that sure sounds like a bad ground to me. I would unhook the wiring harness to chassis ground and the negative battery terminal cable to ground connections and clean them up super good. These things are prone to grounding problems. I bet you the flexed frame just enough when jacking it up, to loosen the chassis ground. And engine cranking, but no fire, dim cluster light, would point me in that direction, by looking at my wiring diagram, mind you mine is a 2009, but I wouldn't think there would be that much basic difference.
