    Sounds like your computer needs to be reflashed if it's a 2002-2009.

    Sorry to say it looks like another TIPM bites the dust.

    The extended warranty covers the multi-function switch ... not the TIPM. Was it the TIPM?

    Dodge sure dropped the ball on this one eh. If I got $1 for every thread I've come across about a failed TIPM I'd probably have enough to pay for your new one. Heck, I was on my third one before the '06 rolled 130K kms. Hope I don't go through this on the 2012.

    TIPM.....acronym for totally integrated power module.

    Instead of having a fuse panel under the hood like usual, the very smart engineers at Chrysler came up with this overly expensive, piece o crap that allows the computer to distribute power.

    The old way you would just replace a relay. Now if lets say your fan clutch goes to hell, your headlights won't work. That's what happened on mine. Keep in mind that I was told you can only flash a computer so many times.....the TIPM is located right next to your drivers side battery.
