My bet is that E100 has corrosion or is loose this is the body ground, E102 is the ECM computer ground, and E109 is the chassis/ frame ground.

German and Icannap1 THANK YOU !!!!. Yes, it was E100. The bracket was completely loose on the cable and corroded. I've attached a pic.

I removed the battery this evening, wire brushed the cable and the clamp and then reattached and soldered the clamp back in place.

I re-assembled and removed the temp ground. Ran the disco till hot and turned on all accessories. The lights are nice and bright, heater/AC fan running on high speed. No more popping and cutting out radio when switching fan speeds and dash lights nice and bright!

Temp gauge is solid and steady at just below mid point and ODB scanner confirms 180 degrees at idle with AC on. Sounds like success.

I also confirmed the temp ground is not needed any more by touching it to the negative battery connector a few times when all the accessories in the cab were running and no sparks or arcing happened!

Hopefully if someone else is searching for this problem, this thread helps.

Regards!

Picture after cleaning. It was really hard to get solder to take so I had to put quite a bit of heat on the cable. I trimmed back the insulation about 1" on each side of the clamp and re-taped them. Should hold up for a while.

The underside of the nut and the post were clean. I didn't need to clean up the top side of the nut. The clamp discolored a bit from the heat, but it was nice an shiny before applying heat and solder.

Thanks again
