Default P0032 AFTER P/S pump failure and replacement

OK many of you long timers here know me on here, I need help.USA 04 T&C 3.8 gas. The power steering pump went out(leaked all around the pulley's and belt. When I parked it yesterday in spot to change the pump...all was well(no CEL).Replaced the pump today and upon start up I immediately had a DTC of P0032. Pump job is good, no more leak, not too bad by taking the cowl/wiper assembly off. I rechecked connectors for the O2 and at throttle body that I had unhooked for better working room...all is good.
MY fear is the the alternator got soaked with P/S fluid and shorted out diodes or something as the alt. is very wet behind the pulley. But no alt warning light and car runs well with the only exception that RPM's seem about 500 rpm higher at cruise(55 mph) speed, sitting right at 2,000 instead of around 1500+/-. I have not yet checked the fuse box and fuses, but this "glitch" really hit me "right between the eye's" for an O2 code!
Yes I just got done eating dinner after giving up on the van for the day at 5:00 pm(I spent 7 hours doing the job)!
Looking forward to some help here to get my T7c back to "par"!

The weather and family plans are going to cause a delay in "digging" back into the problem for the weekend, Going to get my DVOM out and then start checking the harness wiring for the front O2 sensor and sensor itself. Who knows, at 189k miles and original sensor it MAY have just decided to "give up the ghost" same time as P/S pump blew! At least the cowl/wiper assembly will be an easy removal again for direct access to the sensor for change if needed!
