not to sound like an idiot but wat exactly is the tipm and were is it located

Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 9 months ago.

It is the main "fuse box" under the hood- it is actually the electrical control module.

ok that my be a hard sell to my customer without some sort of evidence any ideas as to were to start? this car also has a parasidic draw that ive been chasing for a while not sure if they are tied together or not but just wanted to mention

Expert:  gomi_otaku replied 9 months ago.

Does the parasitic draw happen all the time or sporadic? Have you set up with an amp meter to check to see how high the draw is?
