Question about Plymouth Cars & Trucks
The mechanic has checked both battery and alternator and both are fine, but the battery is not being charged. Mechanic says PCM (?) needs to be replaced, does this sound right? I have seen several PCMs being sold on-line and say that I only need to give them my VIN and mileage to program it to my van. Is this a good idea? Can I install it easly by myself? I understand it is located under the fuse block next to the left front fender. I can't spend $600 for the garage to fix. help!

There has been known issues with the alternator on several year/versions of this car. If memory serves me right, there was a TSB for the alternator either over or undercharging.The TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) specifies replacing the alternator and re-flashing the PCM.(Powertrain Control Mudule).
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
Thank you for using FixYa.

A lot of Chrysler products have the voltage regulator in the computer. I would check the charging system wiring first for poor connections and if nothing else is found there is nothing else for you to do but change it.

It sounds like you're on the right track with the crank sensor.Does the car have injector pulse? A bad crank sensor will also cause no pulse.

Yes, the power distribution center is under the hood with the fuses and relays, I have seen a lot of problems with the ASR (auto shutdown relay) in these chrysler products.
