Hi, I have just been the complete Chrysler list of sensors and modules for your truck 5 times, and no TIPM module. Them I went to the Chrysler Connector Identification chart, that tells you the connectors pin out, and no TIPM. So then I go to the complete Chrysler wiring diagram for your truck, and bang there it is.

It is a "Totally Integrated Power Module" It is located on the left (Passenger) front fender. It has a total of 8 wires going into it, and it is fused, so there is a fuse that can take it out. It is fuse #29, and it is a 10 amp fuse. If this fuse blows, the TIPM will not function. It appears to be fed power through a "Gateway Module" located on the left (Drivers) side of the engine compartment. The wire I would be the most interested in is the Pink wire with the DK green stripe, this wire travels from the gateway module to the TIPM to power it up, there is a splice in the wire on the way from the Gateway to the TIPM, splice #S194. The TIPM has a second fuse too that appears to be on or in the TIPM, fuse #11, it's 20 amp. This is powered to the TIPM by a gray with red wire, check it for power, it should have power at all times, the other wire, the Pink wire with the DK green stripe, should only have power when the key is on. This took a lot of time I hope it helps you. You should be able to diagnose if it is bad with this info.

I hope this helps, 100% satisfaction is my goal. If the answer is not clear, please reply and I will assist you more. When you're satisfied, click on accept. I don't get paid unless you do. A bonus and positive feedback are always appreciated, good luck and Thanks.
