My windshield wipers will not go into the parked position when turned off. My vehicle is a 2002 Dodge Ram 1500.

Most likely a bad park mechanism inside the wiper motor. You could also have a bad wiper switch, but either way you are going to need to get a schematic and do some diagnosing with a test light or volt meter. Without that, you would just be guessing.

We would really need to know what make and year vehicle you have. Check the basics- loose battery cables, fuses, etc.

Battery lite on alternator according to the mechanic the wire from the alternator going into the fuse box under the hood is over charging. And I'm told that the on board computer which regulates the voltage is not functioning!

If the computer is not regulating the alternator properly, then you need to replace the computer.

Error Code P0340

Post by Roland » Mon Sep 07, 2015 12:29 pm

2005 Mercury Monterey • 4.2L V6 FWD Automatic • 75,600 Miles
I have a Mercury Monterey 2005 just lately it started to have a problem at first it would sputter then run fine and only about once a month. Then it started getting worse with it stalling and then it would die after a loud belt squealing sound. It finely had the check engine light come on so I read the code P0340. I had read that this model had a problem with the ECU having water intrusion problems so I ordered a new ECU and installed it myself. But the problem came right back with the Squealing belt sound and the engine just shutting off after resetting the key to off and restarting it works for a few minutes then dies again with the RPM's around 2000.
It has been real bad the last couple of days since we have had heavy rains so that led me to believe it was the ECU. But after replacement still the same. I replaced the Camshaft Position Sensor also and still the same. I have read that it could also be the Alternator and that kind of makes sense since the belt squeals every time it happens. The engine runs perfectly until this happens then it just shuts off sometimes I can pump the throttle and it will return to normal but not every time PLEASE HELP!

That code is for the cam position sensor. After you replaced it, you may have to do a cam and crank position correlation relearn procedure with a scan tool.

If pumping the pedal keeps it going, have the fuel pressure checked also.
