    If you do decide to by a new ECM you may create new issues that you do not have rite now like engine problems.
    first thing you will need is a spare alternator connector, I got mine from a junk yard.
    here is a link for that
    Buy CARQUEST by BWD Electrical Connector PT2042 at Advance Auto Parts
    Next you will need the voltage regulator connector.

    You will also need to get the voltage regulator.

    Next you will want to run a ground from the alternator to the case of the voltage regulator.
    Next run a wire from a switch ignition source like the radio to the terminal labeled I.
    Next run a wire from the alternator positive lug to the terminal labeled A.
    Next run a wire from the Black/white colored wire on the alternator connector to Ground.
    Next run a wire from the Dark Green colored wire on the alternator connector to the terminal labeled F.
    As a side not you will not need to use the Terminal labeled S.
    Also note that you will have the battery light on, but there is a part called a field replacement module for that.

    Also note that this is for a FORD voltage regulator not a Chrysler voltage regulator.
    These are the steps to install a external voltage regulator, but I would use the extra heavy duty or severe duty voltage regulator like the ones I found on ebay.

    the part number for the extra heavy duty is transpo F540XHD
