i assume you have a cummins since you were talking about intake heaters, basically what it is (if you live in the northeast and it started right about tuesday/wednesday) its more than likely the fuel heater system kicking on and off when the PCM sees any thing below 25degrees it turns a fuel heater system on its some where around the fuel/water seperator or might be right in with it, either that or the rectifier bridge in the alternator is going bad
