Smile Voltage regulator on Dodge camper van

Is it possible that our 1984 Xplorer Dodge camper van would take a different voltage regulator? It is a strange looking one and we are having a hard time finding one. The number hat we can see is 0037012. Thank you.

Can anyone help us find a 4 prong voltage regulator that goes under the hood? Thank you so much.

is this part of the Dodge or part of the RV conversion?


If part of the dodge it is likely a part made for a dodge truck, rather than a "van"

No itís not that one. It has a diode and 4 prone plug factory harness. The diode is on the outside. There are 4 wires coming from it. It seems to be charging the house battery too. We can send a pic later.

Default Chrysler Electronic Ignition Module

What you are describing is probably the electronic ignition module, which goes between the distributor magnetic pickup and the ignition coil to produce the high voltage for the spark plugs. It has a four pin connector and a transistor on it.

Does it look like this ignition module? : https://www.summitracing.com/parts/dcc-4120505

If so, this module is not the voltage regulator for the alternator (which does charge the battery(s) on the van). The part in the link in the previous message from Bruceper is the voltage regulator, which has a two pin connector on it.

What makes you think you need to replace the voltage regulator?

Yes you are right as we have found out. Turns out it is the alternator. Thank you for your help.

I installed a Power Master brand new alternator on my 1987. It is single wire. Eliminated the voltage regulator. Easy to install. I had three other rebuilt alternators. From Summit. Made in USA.

I believe the unit you are referring to is the ignition module and not the regulator. Look up an ignition module for you van at Rock Auto and I think you will see what you are looking for.
