Electrical components quit working, trans stuck in 2nd

97 Dodge with cummings, i was driving a few weeks ago the speedometer quit soon after ,the tachometer , turn siginals, radio . i noticed the truck was stuck in 2nd gear and the volt meter was dropping. took it to autozone had the alt checked they said it was bad, while the guy was pulling the alt off the shelf i read his comp. screen it indicated that the symptems i was having with the truck was another part possibly , it was not in stock ( some type of electronic part that goes with the alt.) i took the truck to the place i get it serviced and the tech said the alt is good and he thinks the computer is bad, although he was not confident in his diagnostics. im curious about the symptems im having and the symptems that the autozone computer indicated they are very familure. Thanks, FL
