    Start with cleaning, checking, and wiggling the power cable connector at the bumper.
    Check the cable connections at the battery and solenoid to be sure they're clean and tight.

    Tell us how you really feel GV...glad I ain't on your payroll :D

    If it was a fresh install only a month ago then I'd definitely go over all the power cable connections first..Don't forget the grounds too

    If all checked out good, then start with a test light to see how far the power is getting, and what may not have ground.

    You should also check the four relays. If the harness is not new there could be corrosion.
