19 Volts after PCM replacement

Hi, i have a 1996 jeep grand cherokee limited with the 4.0L. I replaced my PCM with a junkyard unit two weeks ago to fix a no start problem. All was great until five days ago. I was suddenly getting nearly 19 volts ( yes i checked at the battery with a multimeter) when the jeep is running. This caused all of my gauges to go out on the dash. When i do something that draws power, ex turn on lights the guages will flash back on. I replaced my alternator today and it still does it My understanding is that the voltage regulater is in the PCM. Before buying another PCM could it be anything else????

Not sure but be careful driving like that. I've seen batteries explode from overcharging when I worked parts.

I would check the PCM connector for bent pins and anything else being awry. Give the connector pins a good cleaning with electronics cleaner.
