Default 2006 PT cruiser charging problem

I've been working on my 2006 signature series for a couple weeks now. The battery and alternator are new. I found the wires running from the PCM to the alt were worn (the positive all the way through) and I used butt connectors to replace the bad areas. I'm still having the same problem of the alt not charging the battery. I've always got the 0622 code which i believe is just the charging system in general? I just today for the first time got a 2503 code which is low voltage. Could that mean I actually did something good just not enough? I'm worried the power wire being worn through caused a short that harmed the PCM? this is the only issue that I'm having out of the car. Is there anyway the dealer or someone can check the PCM easily? I'm in college so I don't have much time or money to put in this car but really need it to run. Thanks a million for any info or advice!!!

Pull the air box & check these 2 grounds to the right of the box.
I've said this before, just don't look...pull them off & check for corrosion & cut/broken wires.
