Well if it wasn't bad before they put it in, it's bad now. :(

You might want to have them start looking for a short in the electrical system that could've fried both PCMs.

Did the first PCM do the same thing?

Was the second PCM the correct one, or did the shop try to find a used one that was "close enough" - i.e. off of some other model Dodge V8?

Also, I don't know if you know this or not, but the voltage regulator for the charging system is inside the PCM for your van. I've got to wonder if that has anything to do with it?

Just throwin' out some random ideas, here. They may or may not help! :D

Keep us posted please.
