Voltage regulator on a 1985 dodge railant,where is it located ?

It could be in any one of 4 places. If your alternator is made by Chrysler or Bosch the car will have either an external regulator mounted on the right inner fender or in the power/logic module. If your alternator is Bosch or Mitsubischi it has an internal regulator. If the regulator is on the inner fender or screwed to the back of the alternator (Bosch) they are easily replaceable. The Bosch one only needs the screws undone and it comes off. The internal regulator needs to have the alternator taken apart to change the regulator.
Sorry if this sounds confusing but maybe this is why Chrysler was in trouble in the 80's. Hope this helps.

2000 Ram Van - is the voltage regulator located in the alternator

The voltage is regulated by the pcm (power control module ) on the truck. You cannot make any adjustments, removed or tampered with in any way to the pcm. Only a dodge dealer can check it out to see what the problem is with the pcm. Hope this will help you.
