I'd start with your battery...by now sufficient corrosion is playing hell with the grounding....intermittent ground combined with an OLD battery that should be on it's ole grandpa diabetic legs...is too weak to supply the 12 to 12.5 volts...my advise is rid the corrosion....a wirebrush and little brake cleaner of plain water and a rag should tidy it up nicely...THEN you'll have the non- fluctuating voltages to the ECU...which needs clean power~ YES there are Two 30 amp connections to the BLOCK and to the CHASSIS....please assure these connections have NO corrosion~
