Default Aftermarket TIPM Recommendations

My local dealership tells me that Chrysler no longer makes TIPM's for a 2008 convertible and they have none in stock. They have directed me to the bone yard to find one and bring it back to them for programming. Aftermarket pieces are available, so I'm looking for recommendations as some claim that no programming is necessary. Thanks in advance ....

Go over to AllPar and ask 06PTElectricBlue. He did his with no programming. I believe it was from Dorman, but ask him to make sure.

I got a hold of him. Here's Rick's recommendation.

Hi Todd,

I had a Dorman one and it was truly plug-n-play.

This is one for the 'vert, I had their other one for the hatchback, but this one should also be plug-n-play:

Dorman Products - 599-938 (at https://www.dormanproducts.com/p-126...ule&origin=YMM )

Take care,

Rick

Rick is not a member here but he saw your post. Here's his reply.

Hi Todd,

There's been a reply on PTCL to the info you posted.

Here's some additional you can add:

RockAuto has the Dorman TIPM at a pretty good price, and I believe there is a RockAuto discount code that someone recently posted on PTCL that should still be good.



Take care,

Rick

As well as a Dorman unit, you can go to the junkyard and get one from any 2006-2010 PT, turbo or not, and it will work. Get one from a convertible for a convertible and hard top for hard top. If you cannot find the exact one, you can use either in your car, but if you use a hard top tipm in a convertible, everything will work fine except the top. It will not work as it is missing a few components on the board. I have a friend who has verified this for me. I don't believe he swapped a convertible tipm in a hard top, but in theory it will work fine, it just has circuitry for a convertible top which would not get used.

No programming is necessary. Plug it in and go. Technically there would be a vin mismatch which only the dealer could see, but it will never cause a check engine light or have any adverse affects on the car. Around here, the junkyards consider them "fuse boxes" and are very inexpensive.

My uncle got this new 2009 PT project we'll work on after we finished installing the shocks and toyo all terrain tire onto the Wrangler and clear the garage. The PT wiring was messed by the previous owner and may need new TIPM. Gonna visit the local junkyard around.
