sounds like a poor connection somewhere , body ground, maby a crowded connector, ck. if battery under rear seats is good,if i remember correctly it is, with prone connectors

check connections at battery. hose off if corrorded and establish good connections.

ECU problems, unless absolutely impossibility trade it in.

I've seen this occur, bought a NEW ecu and the problem persisted. It was all caused by a bad ground. ECU couldn't think straight--too bad we couldn't return *NO RETURNS on electrical parts" these things don't usually go bad by themselves, y'know.
