2004 Ram 1500 4x2 4.7 eng

Ok thanks, ***** ***** does not use a TIPM, but instead has a FCM (Front Control Module). It pretty much does the same thing as a TIPM and controls the lighting. That being said, based on what you have found, the low beam driver circuit for the passenger side has failed in the FCM. It will show voltage, but cannot handle the load of the bulb. So bot***** *****ne is to replace the FCM. It is that skinny module attached to the IPM (Integrated Power Module ) also known as the under hood fuse box. Pretty easy to replace. I hope this helps,

Chris

Chris, if I replace the fcm with a used one does it have to be reprogramed and if so how is that done?
It may need to be configured to the truck so that all options work properly. That has to be done using the DRB scan tool that the dealer has. However, you may get lucky and find a used one that is configured the same as your old one. So if after replacing the FCM, and everything works, then you will be good to go!Chris
