Customer Question

I have a 1993 Chevy Astro van. We just replace the ECM and it was running great. Took it for a test drive and before we got home the battery died and we lost all electrical power.

Hello, my name is***** for the question. If I am not online when you return please give me some time to get back to you. If the battery died while driving then you might just have a bad alternator. I am not sure what the vehicle was doing before the ECM was replaced, but at this point it sounds like the alternator is failing. I would charge the battery and check the alternator. If it is fine let me know and we can continue from there.
