SOURCE: where is the tipm located
I quote from the service manual:
"The Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) is a combination unit that performs the functions of the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based module that contains fuses, internal relays and a microprocessor that performs the functions previously executed by the FCM. The TIPM is located in the engine compartment, next to the battery and connects directly to the B+ cable via a stud located on top of the unit. The ground connection is via electrical connectors."
This link also provides interesting info on reflashing (re-programming) Dodge Ram TIPM module.

Testimonial: "THIS WAS VERY HELPFUL"
If you've taken it out before you will have no problem replacing it. No programming is needed or anything like that.
The only place you'll be able to get one is your dealer. It will have to be ordered using your VIN number so it will be configured with all of your specific vehicle's options. There is a module inside the TIPM that controls most of the electrical features on your car and it's programmed VIN specific before it leaves the factory.
he first thing I would recommend doing is removing the positive cable that goes to the TIPM, clean and check the connection. Disconnect the battery first. Clean any corrosion you find at the TIPM or the terminal side and see if that helps.
If not, I would next wiggle test the positive cable at the TIPM and see if it will act up. Turn on some high loads, like the blower motor on high and the headlamps, wiggle the cable behind the terminal's crimp and watch for a change in the headlamps or blower motor speed.
If you don't see anything there then I would next pull the TIPM up and look for any wiring problems, remove the electrical connectors and check for any terminal damage or corrosion.
I believe you will probably not find any external problems and it's going to be an internal problem in the TIPM itself and replacement is the ONLY option.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
