help with p601 code low voltage


Asked by Sep 23, 2016 at 03:08 PM about the 2002 Chrysler Town & Country EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I bought this 2002 town and country. The
next day it I had to jump start it so I figured
the battery is bad I almost make it to the
parts store when it died long story short we
needed an alt and battery so about 3-4
months later it starts acting up sputtering
and back firing the Ac surges and some
times doesn't come back on after the engine
is turned off and back on. I did the key
dance 601 low voltage to pcm. So I re test
battery and alt they are good. Originally I
thought it was a bad fuel pump it acts like
it's not getting enough or too much. It wasn't  
I also replaced that. This was before I found
the code. I'm not a mechanic and I know
some things about cars I've been mostly
reading various things online. I can not
come to any conclusion. The mechanic I
took it to that told me about the code said
that the pcm issue is nothing to worry about
then tried to sell me a catylitc converter a
tune up and then I left. I'm a woman but I'm
not helpless l. This is has me stumped and
determined to figure it out. Is it possible for
a bad crank shaft sensor to cause this
voltage issue? Also how do I check the pcm
ground? My last question is would anyone
buy it with this issue? I paid 1800 for it plus
400 for parts and 400 for tires and only had
it for about 6-7 months
