I'm not as knowledgeable as most of the guys here about these trucks, but as an IT guy, I can tell you that electronic/computer components pretty much fail for two reasons:
1) Too much heat (out of spec for the part)
2) Bad power (too much/too little/surging/inconsistent)
Barring a secret nuclear test near you that generated an EMP sufficient to cook your chip (kidding), I'd suspect its one or the other of those, or some combination? Check grounds, too. (Had plenty of silly problems with those, myself...)
Anyone who knows these trucks think of anything that could be a cause of those two conditions??
