will crank but not start without ether ( i have the codes) need help

Hi I'm new to this forum and new to owning a diesel. I got a early 99 f250 with 124000 miles with a automatic. The problem I have is it will crank but not start without using ether I checked the fuses and hpop level and both checked good.
The codes it pulled were

Well the problem started 3 days ago I had drove 350 miles the day before. Well the next morning I go out start it and everything's fine. Well I go to a friends house and when I try to leave it just cranks so I pull the bully dog chip out and won't start still so I got ether and it started and ran fine but wouldent get out of park. Well I shut the truck off and checked all the fluids well it turns out to be a gallon low on oil so I fill it up and crank it with ether again after I got around the park safety lock thing oh and the abs light was on this whole time. After I drove for a while the abs light went away and the shifter started working but still need ether to crank. I drove 350 miles again and still same problems so I changed the fuel filter and still got problems. Any help is appreciated this it my only truck I have and I use it for work. My name is brad
