...first you need to make sure that your battery is newer than seven years old...next you need to take a look at the black cable that connects the battery to the chassis ground...clean that connection to the frame, and to the engine, for the big 1/0 cable that is needed to pull the 300 cold cranking amps that your starter needs. Next clean the positive terminal clamp free of corrosion with your garden hose to keep the acid dust out of your eyes...the little lolipop red connection coming from the alternator should be cleaned as well. It is with renewed power and connections to the frame/chassis and to the engine that we can count on your ECU being able to kick on and start making the right decisions~
