Omar,

If your talking about the PCM (computer) and not the fuse box, then YES, it has to be programmed to your car.

The "fuse box" on an 09 is called a Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) and if there is a problem with it it may involve more than just replacing a fuse. The entire module itself may have to be replaced.

True, they "replace" rather than diagnose and "repair" BUT he's talking about programming and there's no need for that if it's the TIPM.

Upon re-reading the original post, it looks as if the TIPM has been replaced with a new one...if that is the case, then yes it must be programmed to match the VIN. Apparently can only be done by the dealer.

I found the following on jeepforum.com:

TIPM Installation:

1. Position the TIPM into the engine compartment.
2. Connect each of the seven TIPM wire harness connectors.
3. Position the TIPM onto the mounting bracket and push down until the mounting clips are fully seated.
4. Position the TIPM positive cable onto the mounting stud and install the retaining nut. Tighten the nut to 80 - 100 in. lbs.
5. Open the TIPM cover and fully seat the Airbag fuse holder (two fuses in one yellow carrier) and the Ignition Off Draw (IOD) fuse.
6. Connect the battery negative cable.
7. Close the hood.
8. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the “RUN” position and wait twelve seconds. The TIPM will collect the necessary vehicle configuration and VIN data from the CCN and PCM at this time. After twelve seconds turn the ignition key to the “OFF” position and then back to the “ON” position and verify proper vehicle systems operation.
If the information was lost or corrupted, it can be retrieved with the StarScan tool through DealerConnect.

According to the poster, this info came from the 2008 Chrysler FSM. Other posters reported that they had used this procedure successfully. I would certainly try this before I went to the dealer.

I just have this "gut" feeling" that the original poster is from overseas and that he's calling the fuse box the wrong thing, and he's talking about the computer which does need the dealer for reprogramming. Might be wrong. We'll see, if he ever comes back to the forum.

Would it start before replacing the TIPM? Just wondering what the issue was that you chose to replace it.
