Dodge 2500 ram: 94 dodge 2500 not charging new alt. 0.9 volt

This answer was rated:

94 dodge 2500 not charging new alt. 0.9 volt to CPS is PCM bad?
Hi,

Ok, voltage is regulated by the Electronic Voltage Regulator(EVR), which unlike most makes and models, is not located in the alternator but rather the PCM(powertrain control module). The EVR is not serviceable by itself and when it fails the PCM must be replaced. So yes, you are correct that the PCM is at fault

Hi,

possibly a loose wire at the pcm. try doing a wiggle test on the wires and see if it stops and starts charging agina
