Replace the battery. This is by far the worst pile ever as far as generator designs. By its very nature it develops huge voltage spikes that interfere with sensor signals and can destroy the diodes and voltage regulator inside the unit. It is very common to go through four to six of them in the life of the vehicle, although not as fast as you are, but what many professionals are finding out is to reduce the number of repeat failures you must replace the perfectly good battery at the same time. As they age, they lose their ability to absorb and dampen those voltage spikes. The old battery will work fine in a pre-1987 vehicle.
