Question about Dodge Intrepid
Short answer is no,The alternator has a built in regulator that if it does not function correctly can allow for power surges and set off many codes and cause shut down issues as well a many other problems.However It does not send power to different items,It sends it to one location and from there it is distributed to the many different circuits.
But as far as the car dieing as soon as the key is released to the run position, would indicate the ignition switch is bad.

You checked crank sensor & cam sensor right? If all that checks out good, I'd be tempted to remove battery cables, then remove connector on PCM, and clean all contact good with electrical cleaner & retry. So many of the items in that area are controlled by the PCM, it's worth a shot. If you go to (autozone.com) sign up for free then go to repair manuals for your vehicle, and read what the PCM controls, etc, you may stumble upon something you haven't checked already.
