  1. 1999 dodge 2500 Auto new batteries Grid heater deleted Everything else pretty much stock I replaced my alternator in preparation for getting my ECM rebuild. Installed my rebuilt alternator after they replaced the brushes, diodes and rectifier. Started the truck. No charge. Alternator got very hot. Went and got a brand new alternator.. Same thing.. I am looking for help!! Where to start trouble shooting. Hoping the PCM isn't fried too! I am headed to the store tomorrow to buy a new multimeter, mine broke recently, to check the green wire coming off the alternator. Im more worried there is a short somewhere in the wiring. Any help would be appreciated!!!
  2. Just giving an update... replaced my alternator. I am getting ready to ship my ECM to Autocomputerspecialist in Florida. Hopefully while the ECM is getting rebuilt I will do the W-T mod and PCM protection. I was able to start my truck about twice after i got new batteries and alternator (only when the WTS wasn't flashing)? Is that a good sign, or is that irrelevant?

  5. Thanks for the reply! I would like to put this ECM problem to bed for good... the first time!! I have read about AC noise coming from the alternator, can this be checked outside the vehicle at a shop?
  6. Went to start my 1999 2500 and the battery was dead. After charging the battery, My wait to Start light was flashing and wouldn't start. I have read a lot about this pointing to a bad ECM. I was planning on sending mine to carcomputerexchange.com. $514 for a rebuild and lifetime warranty. I haven't pulled any codes yet. I'm going to buy an OBD2 reader tomorrow when i get off work. My questions are... 1. Is there anything that would fry the ECM that i should check before the new one goes in? 2. Has anyone dealt with carcomputerexchange? Also, my WTS light hasn't come on at all for about a year, but starts overtime no matter the temperature. PS- I removed my grid heater
