Hard Start

This morning when I started my truck the the starter had to stay engaged for a solid 15 seconds it usually starts right away 1-2 seconds. The truck did sit for 3 days but that happens all the time and this has not happened before. Is this something I should worry about? A sign of problems to come? My truck is a 06 F-350 DRW with 114,000 miles, the egr system was replaced about 4,000 miles ago. The FICM was replaced about 2,000 miles ago, I have a super chips tuner with the fuel economy tune installed.

Mach 1, I'm having a similar problem. My truck starts everytime but I usually have to keep the key engaged for a few seconds longer after the the engine begins to start. So it's like it starts but if I let the key go like one would normally do the engine will die. But keeping the starter engaged for a few seconds longer always gets it started. I would like to know what the heck's going on too. Hope you find out whats going on with your truck...
