Lightning bolt light comes on and off sporadically

Question

Been having the lightning bolt light coming on and off repeatedly.  Doesn't stay on long mostly when under a load but if you ease up just a little on the throttle sometimes it goes right out. Tried to blink check it and will only blink codes when the light is on. Truck seems to be running fine all gages are reading good.  Have gotten a 3-5, 6-4, 6-5, 3-2 it's all over the place. Any ideas on where to start?

I'll check it tomorrow,  I checked my grounds at the batteries today on my break , going to check all my connections tomorrow.  Seen someone say the main power relay may be going bad and breaking down with the engine heat. Going to try checking those tomorrow also. Just trying to get a starting point,  seems to be a common problem.

I'll check those out tomorrow too, I've been afraid to stretch her legs so I've been running super short loads but gotta get her moving and making more money. Thanks for the response Joey Mack I  appreciate the starting points

there are grounds on the frame behind the left steer tire. they go to the block, in front of the starter.  there should be a ground breaker on the firewall next to the starter relay, it's black and about 2" in diameter.  the EECU fuse # is 40, it's in the epdm/fuse box that is next to the steering shaft under the hood... make sure it's clean and tightly in the socket...   jojo
