Here is a strange problem
Last week I got my Jeep back from the dealership after they replaced the fuel pump and TIPM which was the cause of the starting issues.

Now everything seems to be working fine except....

When I turn on the passenger turn signal, the signal in the side mirror and rear signal turns on, however instead of the front signal turning on, both fog lights blink?!

My guess is they switched some wires when installing the TIPM but before I head back to the dealership, I was wondering if anyone here had any ideas and if this was a possible easy fix?!

definitely a strange issue :eek::eek:

Re: Here is a strange problem
I had my TIPM changed at 200 kilometers and everything worked fine.
The TIPM appears to be a series of motherboards stacked upon each other,so any one or all of those boards could be defective.Also keep in mind that there are several other computers on board of these cars that could also be the source of your issue.
I'm sure that a good technician can diagnose this issue properly and have you back on the road with a smile.

Happened to me as well. Found out tipm was refurbished and defective they need to install a new one. It's one piece they swap out just plug and play

Re: Here is a strange problem
We have the exact same thing. Had the TIPM replaced about a week ago and now the front fog lights and the left turn signal blink when we turn on the right turn signal. Left turn works fine. Hazards work ok except for right light. Taking it back to the stealer in the morning.

Dealer said that the new TIPM wires differently. They switched pins 7 and 11 and now it works great again. Hopefully that will be the last problem

The new TIPM comes with instructions in the box telling about rewiring. Sounds like someone missed that part

Re: Here is a strange problem
Any chance someone has a step-by-step so I can avoid the dealer?... Specifically if I need any special tools to swap the wires
