Did you check cables below drivers batter to see if they're loose.

 

From sounds of it you need to get good crisp battery connections going.

 

You might also check battery voltage with cables unhooked.  One battery might read 12.4 and the other 10 that's no good.

 

I'd also check battery connection on starter its probly loose with 10 years of mud and oil on it..

 

Does cruise control work??

Are you talking about the grid heater solenoids?

I'm also guessing the converter is locking and unlocking at cruise speeds in both 3rd and 4th.

 

My hunch now that your cruise control is wacky is that you are nearly having voltage issues. 

 

The cable connections below the drivers battery I honestly dont know what they are but I know them being loose caused me to have similar issues as you.

 

You need to go through and clean every battery connection on the truck wether you think it pertains to your issues or not.

 

I asked about the cruise control because I had granny issue where my torque converter wouldnt hold cruise also didnt work.

 

Regardless wether your computer is bad these issues need to be looked into and can often be fixed for free.

The lights are wire hot constantly so it possible you have a bare spot in a wire somewhere. I would be looking for the last hack job a previous owner might have done to the truck. So it will be the pink wire for sure. The other side goes to ground and just lights the light up for you.

Both batteries when running will read the same. Check each battery independent unhooked from the truck.

 

What's .019volts ?

There are capacitors and stuff those like mopar man know alot about. I just know that's turned off  lol

He is testing for stray AC voltage from the alternator. Too much can cause issues.

I put a volt meter on the teuck again with the proper meter and it was ranging between .019 and. 007

Thats a passing voltage. I have never seen that wide a spread on mine. I was around .03 on mine and @W-T's ground mod dropped me down to .01. Worth while to do.
