Default TIPM replacement for malfunctioning wipers.

I have an '06 Cruiser and the front wiper blades are malfunctioning. They only move when turned all the way to high, and even then to slowly too be effective. The rear wiper functions fine. The dealership after inspecting the car told me that the TIPM needs replace and quoted $600. Knowing next to nothing about cars or the integrity of the dealership (my wife bought the car from them before we were married) I decided to do some research first. If anyone has any knowledge in the area or advise on how we should proceed, it would be much appreciated.

Although I haven't seen your problem before, the stalk that controls the wipers is part of a double stalk, the other being the multifunction stalk on the other side of the steering wheel. Loads of problems with that ajoining stalk and that's more than likely your problem rather than the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module).

The whole part (both sides) look like this but you don't have to buy both sides.



I would look for a new place to get an estimate, someone who knows about PT Cruisers.

Hey CREWZIN.I was just wondering if the 06 and newer PT's have the problems with the multi function switch.I see Chrysler changed the design and was just wondering if they addressed that issue.

Hate to say it, but I think I remember members with the newer 06+ models still have the problem. I could be wrong, memory ain't what it used to be. The big ole 66 is coming up in about a week.

Is there any kind of write-up that talks about the change of design and why they changed it, like what problems did Chrysler finally admit too?

PT Cruisers.
Thanks so much for the information. I'll definately research this first, it seems to make a bit more sense to me. I'll post the results up as soon as we take care of the issue. Thanks again!
