TIPM replaced ? I think ?

So iam gonna try and keep this short. And please if you have had your tipm replaced pleaee chime in.
I have a 2011 JGC limited with 72,000 miles i recently had the dealership replace the tipm on it due to they had told me the tipm is faulty. Now i have had no problems with the tipm that others have had the only reason i replaced it was to fix the rear view camara and have the computer reflashed due to installing a tow hitch. Now i got the car back yesterday ($1,150 later) and i'am not sure if they did anything my back up camera still isn't working but the more strange thing that got me thinking nothing was done was. Now maybe iam wrong but wouldn't you think when the brain of the car is replaced none of the following would be the same
1. Paired phones (me and wife)
2. Radio pre sets
3. Seat settings
4. Downloaded pictures
So i would just like to find out a way if i can find out if it was replaced. Thank you

Can't offer help, but why isn't the camera still not working if that was why you brought it in for?

Cause from all the troubleshooting ideas to fix the rear view camera all lead to the tipm had to be replaced. Because to try and reflash the computer i had to fix the faulty tipm problem first

Re: TIPM replaced ? I think ?

to make a long story short I Brought the vehicle in there to get recall work done on it and at the same time I wanted them to reflash the computer because I recently put on a tow hitch so that the computer recognizes that there's a tow hitch now so when I picked up the vehicle when it was done the service writer told me we could not perform the flash because the tipm is faulty that's what led me to believe that the back up camera is not working because of The faulty Tipm

Re: TIPM replaced ? I think ?

I might be wrong, but I don't think the TIPM is the "brain". I think it is simply the fuse/relay block that is under the hood on the passenger side. I had the "brain" replaced on my '13 and it was inside the dash and required work by FCA headquarters. The dealer took it out, sent it to FCA, they transferred certain data to the new one, and then the new one was installed. The data included mileage, etc.

What was the backup camera doing? I had some work done on my Jeep and when I got it back, the camera didn't work. Just a black screen. I took it back and the camera was never plugged back in on the lift gate.

That's exactly what mine was doing. I would take a look and see if maybe it's not plugged in or if some how the plug got loose.
