Question type: Maintenance & Repair

If pcm fails to regulate voltage, can I rig an external

The best repair is always find and repair the problem. You may make things worse by trying to "southern engineer" something, especially when computers are involved.

Actually they make kits designed to do just this, bypass the ECM voltage regulator when it fails.
