Question about Cars & Trucks
I don't think there is an actual tach wire and I wonder how Advance decided that was the problem.
If the alternator is not charging the battery, it could be the engine computer. The computer acts as the voltage regulator for the alternator.
If that is the problem, you could try a used computer, or have someone wire in an external regulator from an older model Chrysler product.

Check all your fuses if you had a system failure it could have blown a fuse. I am not sure on your vehicle where the fuse is in the car or under the hood it could also have a relay. You can check your alternator by checking the voltage at the back of the alternator where the big wire bolts on. You should have 14+ volts at the alternator.

SOURCE: battery wont hold charge
HI. you may have a battery drain issue that is sapping your battery overnight.
Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

You must have blown a master fuse or fusible link.
Refer to the maintenance manual.
this happens sometimes during a jump start or a direct short in the elect system.
