Well, test the battery by undoing the negative, leave 1h, see how much V
But yours being a 2003, more likely faulty DIM - search forums, Ebay repair service $150 battery HAS to be disconnected while removing it

If you have this problem after engine stay worm, I think issue can bu in the CEM also.

I had this issue once on my '94 850. I went under the drivers dash and found a bundle of wires that had worn thru a wrapping and the wire sheathing and the exposed wires were touching a steel cross member. Isolated and wrapped each exposed wire and all has been good since.
