I would search for a short somewhere like rollinCoal said. lot cheaper than a new ecm and most likely your problem.

Ya, i am tring that, just took the bed off and looked at all the wire there, fixed afew wires that looked questionable but it still done it, i put wire in the fuse and when i hit a bump the day light symbol comes on the dash, looks like the dash is next
