14 V eh?

Sounds like automotive mains.

A nasty environ - I lost LM555's when powered
directly off automotive mains YEARS ago - on
one of my first projects!

Solution was to add a real - sorry, an "RF" term
there - add a series resistor along with a shunt
electrolytic cap - any 'spikes' are met by (dropped
across) the R (chosen based on some maths) against
the influence of the electrolytic cap ...
