the GEN light is on and the lights get dimmer, and the van stops. Had the computer replaced. Now the GEN light is still on, and also alot of lights on the dash are on too, and the van loses power and stops. Also the GEN had been replaced. Battery cables OK

    Have it scanned at an auto repair shop. Not a parts store.

    Is the ALTERNATOR charging , was the battery FULLY charged before putting the new alternator on and burning it up? Where all the codes that were set because of low voltage cleared? What was the reason for PCM replacement?
