Question about 2004 Dodge Ram 1500
When the anti theft system was created,the dealers forgot to tell the new car buyers about how much the fob matters to the vehicle,without it,owners are stuck,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.if you lost your fob or never had it,whatever,you need to have the exact fob that came with that car from the factory,the key and fob have a chip in them that only go to that certain car,if you do not have it,then you need to buy a new one from the dealer or ebay and then you need to contact your dealer about programming the fob to your car,you might not have to have it towed if they have the documents from the car,the only other way is to get a junk car,with the steering column,key,fob and all computer boxes and door locks and switch them,i just did that with a 98 dodge dakota,and it works.

Open up the tail gate, you will see two torque screws on the inside beside the tail lights. take these out, this will free up the housing and you can change it from there.

There should be a diagram under the hood on the fan shroud or radiator support. If not, let me know and I see if I can find one. For the most part, if the pulleys it rides on are grooved, the belt ribs ride on it, it the pulley is smooth, the back side rides on it. From a picture of the alternator I have, from the passenger side coming up, over the alternator, then down and under the belt tensioner (smooth pulley), then up and over A/C compressor, then down and around P/S pump, up and around water pump, down around crankshaft pulley.

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.
