Not able to communicate with PCM with diagnostic scanner

did you really check all fuses. (using an ohmmeter)
what engine, I4 or V6?????
are you posting to someone elses PCM Com problem or what?
is this just and alternator issue , how confusing can this be....
PCM> coms. fails.
3 possible.
1: pin 16 in the OBD2 conn, is not 12vdc. blown fuse. (use a voltmeter)
2: wrong scan tool old tool , on modern CAN buss car will fail. 100%
dead. (open SCAN tool book read if it supports CAN buss)
3: Dead PCM or id bet its , a fuse blown to it.

now i do ALT.
18v is bad. (using a quality DMM or radio shack 1960 meter?)
it means the ALT regulator OUT of CONTROL. ( or bad wiring to it)
changed what?, alt is new, used, rebuilt, barrowed? what.?
This car , im looking it up now, at so could you,
or the FSM.

this ALT has a regulator, but is just a slave to the PCM.
in that the PCM controls the REG with 3 wires.
the diagnosis is not easy , i recommend, the FSM
it covers all steps., in the diagnosis,

top fail reasons.
1: bad fuses.
2: bad wiring and connections. (see schematic)
3: bad battery (not you) (open cells cause REG to shut down. )
4: bad ALT. (i say a fella change alt 5 times, and skipped #2)
5: bad PCM. (last, , show me that tests, in FSM)

all that and tons more in the FSM. read it.

or log in to and read the Charging pages.

Car will start but wont restart after running several minutes.

Is your battery any good? A bad battery will not charge or charge properly and be at the root cause of your issue.

Charges ok, battery was replaced, connections cleaned and painted,ran fine for almost three months, then battery went flat again, checked altenator clleaned and greased connections, van ran fine for any...

I would check and clean any wire and connection between the alt and the battery and all grounds. Also check and see if charging voltage is the same at the battery post as it is at the lug on the alt.

Battery wont stay charged, alternator problem?

I suggest that you take the car to an autoparts store and have them check the alternator output. That will tell whether the alternator is putting out sufficient voltage to keep the battery charged or not. Most parts stores will check the alternator for free. Hope this helped and best wishes.

Alternater trouble Mitsubishi Montero Sport 2003

I have had the exact problem. I've changed altenator 3 times also and it has the same leak, but I've changed altenator an batterys over 2 year span. It just happend to me today after not driving it for 5 months. It's been in storage while I was away. Drive it fine for 2 days but today the radio kept shutting off and finally the car died right in the middle of the road. Bought a new battery because I had a warranty on last battery, but bought it just to get it home and in the driveway. Did you ever find out what was wrong with it?
