2006 RC TIPM

Well the truck up and died last week. had it towed to dealer took a few days for the viper tech to diag and they said PCM was fine but tipm was the problem and they cannot locate a replacement part. Seems this is a common problem with the 2006's

So now I am on a search for a tipm. I checked with Dan at Viper Specialty Performance and he has no stock. According to dodge all dealers are out of stock. hoping that someone has some idea of where to find a source for a new or remanufactored TIPM?

Thanks for the help!

I know someone who probably has one. Check out "The Viper Pit" on facebook.

update

Thanks, I will try the viper pit. I did just hear back from the dealer and they want to try bypassing the bad tipm connection using wires and a relay...similar to the fix that as been posted for later model dodge trucks where the headlight goes out due to a tipm issue..

Mine is doing the same thing and I just sent mine out today to see if it can get repaired. If anything comes good of it I will definitely let you know.

where did you send it to? the current status on mine is the dealer is goign to attempt to repair the tipm by bypassing the problem connection using - wiring in a relay that will bypass the internal board.

this is not an uncommon repair to avoid a costly module replacement. 2011-2013 (?) Grand Cherokees and Durangos had recalls in which they bypassed the fuel pump relay in the module and installed an external relay for intermittent no start conditions. I would not feel uncomfortable having that done by someone competent.

I sent mine to Automotive Scientific Inc. and it supposed to arrive there today. So in a day or two they supposed to let me know if they can fix it or not.

This was done on our 13 durango and it kinda pisses me off that they repaired it like I would have wired in something as a 16 yr old.

Yeah, depending on the quality of technician the repair can look half assed.
