Welcome to JustAnswer!!! My name is***** a 16 Yr Dodge dealership technician and I will be helping you with your question today...
What's the last 8 digits of your VIN so I can grab a wiring diagram so we can see what's going on?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
VIN: 3B7HC12Z61G171358
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
I attached the wiring... If you will notice the Dark Blue should be 12v and the Dark Green a ground. If you have have either one ohm the wire to PCM to make sure it's good/ If wires are good then you have a bad PCM and it will need to be replaced... I hope this helps,Brad

What connector will that be on the PCM?
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
It shows C2 and C3 connectors.. The C2 is the middle one and C3 is to the right.. When you disconnect it they will be numbered on the inside..
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Got it. Both wires have continuity from alternator to PCM,
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
Sounds like you have a bad PCM. Do you know of any codes are in it?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I pulled a few codes this morning, P0753 ; P1765; P1495
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
None of those codes have anything to do with he alternator. So if your not getting 12v from the PCM and the wire is good then I would like replace the PCM..
I hope this helps,
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Ok, I check with the guys I got the PCM from. Thank you.
Expert:  -Brad- replied 2 years ago.
If it wasn't a new PCM I would get a new one because the one you have has a bad alternator driver circuit.. Glad I could help and thank you for the positive rating,Brad
