    Exclamation loose lips sink ships, loose leads melt wire.

    i agree with checking all the connections. i was having trouble with starts, even getting power supply help codes.
    popped open the din's connectors to find my work lead was loose and my HF was sparking inside and burning up the wire. it was not a great fit so i took a car battery cable end and cut off the crimp end to put around the wire then clamped it back in. no problems after that. when i first tightened it up it just pushed the main part of the wire out of the way of the clamping bolt. the crimp ring made a much better clamp.
    they do make the crimps for the din's connectors, i found out after . no idea the $$ , but the battery clamp was near home and an easy cheap fix.

    this may not be your problem, but still worth a quick check. lose connections can do strange and bad things.
