Welcome to just answer.com. I'm here to help you and your 100% satisfaction is my goal.

Most commonly this is caused by a faulty front control module or a bad integrated power module , explain to me exactly wich lights are not working

Customer: replied 6 years ago.

My Passenger side headlight - only high beam works.. I do not have the low beam.

I checked all fuses under the hood, I replaced bulb and tried to follow the wire to see if it was broken. It still doesn't work.

When you mean module, do you mean "what the headlight bulb plugs into'?

Expert:  Dodge expert replied 6 years ago.
Remove the Front Control Module from the Integrated Power Module and supply power to pin #1, if the light comes on replace the FCM. If not, disconnect the C7 connecter at the IPM and power up the White/Tan wire. If the light works, replace the IPM

I appreciate your answer,but I do not know what the IPM and FCM and C7 is??

 

Can you clarify what this is?

Thanks

Steve

The IPM is the integrated power module , the fcm is the front control module and c7 is a connector

Hi sorry for not getting back to you. I tried what you told me to do and I still can't get it to work I did not get power to the ipm or the fcm. Since I did that now the hight beam dosent work either. I think I am going to take it to a dodge dealer to fix unless u have another way to fix it.
Thanks for your help

This is most likley a faulty IPM but check to see what trouble codes are being stored in the memory of the pcm using a scan tool .

Ok I will try that. Can I run wires from the drivers headlight


Thanks
