My 2009 Avalanche has some gremlins. First to
E the door locks went crazy and later the engine started missing. A mechanic at work told me to disconnect the battery terminals and touch them together to reset ECU. That worked. Then on a long road trip during the heat of summer it did it again, this time I noticed my voltage meter dropped from 14 to 12. Any help on this??

You need the charging system checked along with the battery if you show only 12v.
Do you have a check engine light on?

I do but the code is for the fuel tank pressure system. The 12 volts is intermittent and when it drops is when I have the issues

Ok, so you have a charging system/battery issue and need to load test the battery and run tests on the charging system.
