Bill, please list the model of your truck and what engine it has (specify
gas or diesel if you have a 5.9L). Also list all of the symptoms and all

pump and PCM and you want to change the PCM again or maybe the alternator,
but we don't know why. Do you have a fuel problem or a charging system
problem or both? Does the truck run? Is the battery voltage low? Is the
check engine light on? Is the fuel pressure low? What PCM pin got burned?

I must have one of those adkins 99 rams...no carbs....
OTOH, I'd rather be blown that injected...
Anything is possible.
How many expensive parts are you willing to replace before you have it
looked at by a professional? I know they are expensive but you may save
yourself some money in the long run by having someone with the right test
equipment go over the charging system.
