RPM Extreme .com reprograms them.
TSB 08-021-06 - shows that TIPMs can be reset for the tail/signal lights. The trucks pulling trailers that short out their lights are screaming. And I don't blame them for not buying another Dodge truck if the dealer charges them a grand to fix a taillight.

Plowsite.com claims that the same TSB flash will turn on non working headlights.

You Tube 'Dodge headlight problems' -- 'don't waste your money' also has a car owner [female] who tells an interesting story about her Caliber headlights.

I'm able to change headlight on or off when I open the door with the remote. While in the front seat. With a few touches of a button.

The pay-in doesn't stop.
I was going back through some pics of the repair work at the time and I think I discovered how the DORMAN top cover got on the MOPAR TIPM, the mechanic that was installing the MOPAR TIPM got the covers switched.

This is the label on the TIPM that is currently in my PT and I'm satisfied it's a genuine MOPAR part.

Brothers Dodge's headlight went out and I explained that the TIPM could be taken apart, he removed and disassembled and found a drain hole on the bottom of the case directly below the circuit for the headlights, he wired a switch in for the lights and moved on.

Rickstein; At least you know that you have a genuine Mopar factory correct decal/label. -- just kidding-- Hope it lasts the life of the car for you.

TSB # 08-021-06 mentioned that the 'Star Scan' tool had to be hooked into the internet. Is this the level of knowledge and tools required [$$$$$] that a mechanic must possess to play the game? And this is only one brand!
