You might try running a 14 gauge ground wire to the ECM and see if that helps.

I think we tried that but ill try it again anyway just to be safe. However, the pointers on my gauges are all to the left. If it was a ground wouldnt they be pegged to the right?

I tried a jumper wire from the negative on the battery to the bottom bolt holding the ECM on and it didn't change anything
