Initially, SWR would be suspect or most probably RFI messing with the computer and on-board electronics. As in most instances of RFI, additional shielding would be required on the electronics/computer and or a flat groundstrap strung from the front chassis, engine, battery, dashboard electronics, CB radio, vehicle body to the antenna mount.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
