What I need to know is where the TCM is located, I seen a lot of videos, but the 2006 to 2009 videos do not show thw exact location of the module for the 2008, even the dealers diagram I received does not show th e right location of the module, I cannot find it.

You never got back to me with an answer, I waited for your answer for 14 hours but nothing, so I found somebody else to help me. Consequently, I should not be charged at all, if I am charged I will dispute the charge and also leave a bad review.

I am unsure what happened. I did not submit and answer, I was only asking questions and last question I asked to you was at 8 pm yesterday. I did not get a reply till now. I have to ask questions in order to submit an accurate answer. I think? the JA site may? have gone down for a bit but that is out of my control. I am sorry you are not happy but I was awaiting your reply at 8 pm last night. I will send this post to JA CS dept
