ECM has the voltage regulator built inside it, bad way of doing it but that might your trouble, I have seen a few people rewire the charging system back to the old external regulators, but you would need a factory wiring schematic for both styles to do the rewire, then you may have a check engine light.

Check your charge cable coming off of your alternator going to your battery mine corroded and killed my battery every time it ran
