v6 in place of a 4 banger.

you probably still could pull codes out the ecm. but if the system is hacked, probably will have codes that set codes.
98 model, seems the crusher is the place to go.
does it have the throttle body or 6 manifold injectors? if you have spark, then go for fuel pressure.

If me. I'd start tracing wires till I found the short. Hot wire probably touching ground intermittent or melted to another wire.

I am only saying this because it worked before. Probably need to buttress (re-enforce) the fix.

New wire. Heat shrink. Solder, etc.......

Edit, Anyways. That is where I would start before ecm.

Take a good look around your exhaust manifolds.

Could be the alternator and/or regulator. Check grounds.
