Exclamation bad ground causing spu problems?

well the title of my post pretty much explains it all. i was wondering if a bad ground could cause the cpu to act wierd. my engine is a little shotty to say the least and my dad seems to think all my problems are caused by the cpu. Also for some reason my truck always always always will die when ever its cold outside. i live in South dakota so winter is pretty impossible to escape so i need help with this problem badly. i will start my truck and i will give it about ten minutes or so then i put it in Drive and it shuts off plain and simple. then as i go down the road i take a left turn and the engine gets very very close to dying. the gauges will all go down momentarily and the lights will dim and then it acts like normal... more than one time though my truck has died oon that turn. it is really bad especially in town cause i feer i will get hit by another car if my truck dies :l
