    Hello we purchased a 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 8/5, and on Friday the jeep just stopped running in the middle of the road. Dash lights flashed, steering went, and had to coast safely to the side of the road. Thinking it is the TIPM, called Chrysler, they stated that the part was replaced in 2013, car is at dealership now, and advice would be great

    There was a recall on them a while back so that would likely explain the replacement back in 2013. From there, you will just have to wait to see what they say...you want to be sure it IS the TIPM.

    If it is, here is a small write up from another Jeeper on how they handled this on his 07.

    "Ok, so my dealer said that my tipm was bad. My symptoms were as follows. Wiper washer (front only) would not work. Rear was fine. Passenger front power window worked when it wanted to. All others were fine. Door locks would unlock with remote none would lock. Turn signals would not flash 3 times when tapping (for passing). Dealer said your warranty does not cover electrical. I asked "how much for the install and tipm?" They wanted to do it at their cost(so they said) at $700.00. After a temper tantrum that only a seasoned 41 year old could throw they stuck to their price. I called a friend that is a service manager for a local dodge dealership here in Michigan. (Thank-You Jody F). I was able to purchase my new tipm for $250.00 and he delivered it to my door. The other dealer said there was 2 to 3 hours labor included in the price. Today a friend...(Thank-You Jacob your the Man!) helped me remove and replace my tipm. It only took about 15 minutes! Really!
    Tools needed.
    1) 13mm socket with a ratchet.
    1) $4 Lisle 60780 Wrench, 10mm10mm wrench.
    1) Small tip flathead screwdriver.
    1) Watch with a second hand or a stopwatch.
    1) Extra pair of hands....Mine were connected to my friend and coworker Jacob.
    #1. Remove the negative battery cable.
    #2. Remove the cap of the tipm.
    #3. Remove the lead to the tipm.(small nut )
    #4. Remove tipm pop in clips on top that secure tipm to the jeep.
    #5. Carefully unplug all of the connections on the bottom of the tipm.(These have gray rotating clips that attached to the plug).They are all color coded/idiot proof to reinstall. There is a small black release in the center push them in with the screw driver then rotate the gray clip downward to release."
    #6. Remove the old tipm.
    ***It helps so much to have one person stand in front of the jeep holding and rotating the tipm and one on the passenger side removing and installing the plugs.***

    To replace the tipm do this in reverse order.
    VERY IMPORTANT!!!! STARTING INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!
    Place your ignition key into the ignition.
    Turn the key to the on position for 12 seconds.( I used a stop watch)
    Then turn the key to the off position.
    Then start your jeep as normal and check all of your functions to ensure normal operation.
    Thanks to the help from all of you and some help from my friend mine works fine.
    Im sure there are photos and maybe a link to a video of an install.
    I am not a repair tech. I cant type that great but I hope this will help someone solve their tipm problems. Thanks again to everyone. JEEP ON!
