Question about 1999 Chrysler Town & Country
A New alternator does not necessarily mean it is working. Have you tested it with a meter?
It could be the alternator is not charging it which you would notice by there being a warning light on the dash and also you would notice that the voltage reading on the dial would be lower than normal (around 12v) instead of 14-15v when the engine is running.
Or it could be that you have a light stuck in the 'on' position and you aren't aware of it, or there is something else that shouldn't draw current doing so when the minivan is shut down. That you could only tell by finding a bulb (perhaps glove compartment or underhood light) and/or measuring the battery current draw when the minivan is shut down for at least 30 minutes and no lights are on, using an ammeter inserted between the - post clamp and the - post of the battery. It should read less than 25 mA in that full shut down condition. If not let me know and we can go from there.
The only thing left is the voltage regulator. One problem. Voltage regulation is controlled by the power control module (PCM), which is a non-serviceable unit. As a result, the PCM needs replaced. Have it checked and let me know
