Where did you run added grounds to?
Computer housing? Block? Chassis?

I have had the problem since new (03) and the dealer even replaced the multi-switch....haha

I ran 2 wires (all 8 gauge) from the negative post...1 to the computer chassis and 1 to one of the grounds on the driver fender well (the one with 3 small wires for components) then 1 from the pass fender well ground to the intake and another from the alternator bracket to the same intake bolt and finally 1 from the engine to the big ground on the driver fender well.
