most definately noisy power from the alternator or regulator. the noise on the vpw bus is enough for the interface to think another message is being transmitted when it isnt.

- Moved OBD2 gnd from dash to engine, problem continues
- Moved OBD2 +12v source from dash to distribution point under hood, problem continues
- Added new signal wire from pcm to OBD2 using different route, problem continues

Then:
- Original signal wire back, new wire from pcm blue pin 60 to OBD2 pin5 (signal ground): Fixed! :punk:
Or maybe it works few times and break again, let's see...
