My alternator is not charging the battery

75

Asked by Jan 08, 2015 at 11:28 PM about the Dodge Ram

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I was on my way to work and my battery gage went to low.  Shortly after arrival the battery died.  I have replaced the battery with a new one and replaced the alternator three times.  The alternator has been tested and is good.  Still does not charge the battery.  I'm thinking it's the PCM.  Is there a way to reset it?  Or do I have to replace it?
