External Voltage Regulator 08 Nitro Troubleshooting

After replacing the alternator and battery in my moms 2008 Dodge Nitro, we discovered it was the voltage regulator that was shot. Since it is inconveniently located inside the vehicles computer, the cost to simply replace the whole thing is too great, I went looking for alternatives. We stumbled across an external voltage regulator kit which is supposed to be preprogrammed to 14.3 volts. We got everything installed per directions, however, now it runs way to high at times reaching 19 volts. Does anyone have any experience, suggestions or resources they could share? Thank you.
