considering the code is an "out of range" code, it can be caused by multiple issues, like bad grounds, bad power feed connections, broken wires, or dirty plugs. I have had one from a corroded fuse in the fuse box.
Parts cannon approach is a waste of time, replacing an alternator might fix it, but I would suspect the alternator was already faulty and low volts was the real cause.
The question should be "why did they replace the alternator to cure this code"?
Diagnose things properly first, each case is different.
