02 Starting Issue

Howdy guys, my 02 has been acting weird here the last 2 days. Back in August, my batteries died, so I picked up 2 new ones. It fixed it back then. Now, yesterday my truck was very slow to start, but did crank over. It ran fine. I got where I was going, parked for about an hour and a half, and it wouldn't start at all whenever I got back. We jumped it, and it immediately fired over. Still ran fine. Now, I took my batteries out, had them tested and charged, and the truck started right up. After I let it sit overnight, it wouldn't start again. I've tested the batteries and alternator, and they're both good. After I jump it, the ABS light comes on at idle, but as soon as I start to drive, it goes off again. Because the truck still runs great after I get it started, I think it's possibly a loose ground somewhere, or a trickle leak. Where would y'all suggest looking at? Thanks in advance

Here's an update guys:

I just jumped it over and it started up. I let it idle for about 5-6 minutes to warm up, and then pulled out of my driveway to go around the block once. As soon as I started moving, I noticed none of my gauges were working. No RPM, no speedo, no diesel gauge, nothing, and my pyro gauge was working barely, and bouncing around like crazy. It was running weird, so I pulled into the next driveway over, and it just died. Tried cranking it, it just clicked. My power steering fluid lid also popped off and starting leaking everywhere too, which was weird. So I had it pulled back in front of my house and I think I'm about at the point of just going to the dealership, because I have to have a way to get around and I can get a loaner from there.

I had an 01 f250 lariat with similar problems. It ended up being the gem module. It was constantly drawing power even with the keys out of it. Random things would happen such as my power seats moving or the seat heater kicking on all by itself. Ive read about trucks even cranking by themselves. Not sure if that ones true though. It all started with my batteries going dead. I bet if you unhook your batteries each time you stop for awhile it would start back up when you hook them back up. Ford claimed they couldn't get it anymore. In order to get one you would have to find one off a used truck that had the same installed options as yours.
