In many cases, battery charging gauge fluctuations are a symptom of the charging system not keeping up with the additional electrical demand of a blinking light or wipers or other intermittent electrical drains. I would first have the battery checked to see if it is holding charge. If the battery checks out OK, the likellihood is your alternator is failing. More than probably it is your alternator. Ya probably one of the six diodes in the bridge are open, Or the brushes to slip-ring connections are jumping (dress slip-rings and replace brushes. GETERDONE!

What would cause a ecm to go bad on a 1987 Chevy Celebrity?

As with many electronic devices they can merely fail over time. I have heard it said that jumping the battery can cause the ECM to fail, I don't know that to be true. Too high a battery voltage could cause failure of the ECM. That might be caused by the alternator putting out too much voltage when charging the battery.
