Have you tried using the split beads on the
lines to the computer(s) ?

there could be more then one processor unit
in your truck, my ford wagon has several
including the abs and onboard system.

I did read somewhere that one ham
grounded his exhaust system the the truck
frame.  This did help his problem.

good luck & 73 clay

I am certainly with you.

I also have a 1999 F-250 w/Diesel engine.

For the last 50 years, I have been solving similar problems for others but can't figure this one.  I have grounded the exhaust system, no help.  I have put ferrite beads on every lead to and from the computer, that I can get to.  I have routed and rerouted power leads, coax and antenna.  Nothing helps.

I tow a 5th wheel trailer and love my truck, but could be persuaded to trade it off, maybe.

I also would love to hear about any fixes.
