Hi there.

There should be a 5-pin fuel pump relay in the Integrated Power Module (IPM). Would you like me to help you testing it and its circuits? If yes, do you have a digital voltmeter you can use for the tests?

Expert:  Juan Crespo replied 1 year ago.

By the way, can you verify the 8th digit of the VIN as being the letter "C"?

The IPM is what Dodge calls the combination of the Power Distribution Center (PDC) and Front Control Module (FCM) - PDC is basically the old fuse box where all fuses and relays are under the hood.

I'll need a few minutes to upload the graphics you'll need for the tests. Back in a bit...

It's actually been only 17 minutes since your last reply, but it looks like you're in too much of a hurry for me to be able to help. I'll opt out and let others try. Please don't accept, rate or reply until another expert responds or the site will cycle this back to me.
