ok I do believe that that code is saying there is either a loose wire on alt. or a open wire .. or alt is pooching..

But would that explain the surging? and the shitting on itself

Most likely an open circuit in the feild windings,,,,,,,,,,,,,, brushes worn out, and you need a new alt. But should get the charging system checked to be sure thats the problem. Chrysler controls the feild by the computer. Basicaly what that means is the voltage regulator is in the computer. But most common is a bad alt. If you don't have proper voltage for the vehicle it will run like crap.

Could be the halogen fluid, but I digress, take the thing to a shop and have them do a proper charging system test......it'll stress the alternator and if it does act up, it'll be seen.
