Same here. None of my Dodge PCMs made it to 200k.

So I am going to have to resurrect my chevy tonight. 1991 3/4 350 and its not charging and voltage is not showing in dash. Know where to start trouble shooting? Its a plow truck and this happened after it sat for a month after it snowed

Diode or get a single wire conversion kit for the alternator. Owrongo auto parts should have an alt testing station.

Well I think its from corrosion from the salt. Its my plow truck. I just haven't followed the connections yet so I wondered if you knew what to look for. I don't know how it works yet.

Just clean the plug on the side and the wire connection on the back.

Well I tried getting my chevy plow truck going so I can work on my dodge, that ended with a bolt breaking off in the block that holds the power steering pump straight so it throws the serpintine belt and had to get it hauled home with a dump truck. The dodge still misfires were it use to ping before I changed all the ignition stuff. As long as I drive it out of overdrive I don't notice it. Being that $$$ is a little tight this month and winter approaching my chevy needs some work on the trasfercase and cv axel, as well as u-joints and the plow pump needs new seals. So that's where my focus is heading now. Oh and tires.

Hang in there buddy. I spend every weekend fixing broken stuff. You will reach a point when you can splurge and get a newer setup. Unreliable equipment can really make it hard to keep up with work.

Ya I try to stay away from buying cheap new stuff. My kubota zd326 has ran like a top in the 2 years I've had it. 1000hrs now. Next year will be the test. I know a drive shaft will be needed but I think that's it. I'd like to get a 12 valve cummins with a 5 speed 2wd for hauling trailers. Plow trucks are plow trucks. They get eaten alive by salt so I refuse to put much money in a plow truck ill be getting another one this fall. Early 90's f250 with a plow for some trade off work. So that will be added to the repair rotation.
