So I have a 2010 nitro and I'm pretty sure the tipm is bad.
Horn goes off by its self
Doors lock by them self
Doors won't unlock from the key fob.
Battery drains over night
Tipm clicks when everything it off and all doors closed.

I have the horn fuses out but I want to replace the tipm. Is there any replacements that are good? Where should I order one from.

Check your ground wires first. Disconnect Neg battery cable, then Pos battery cable. Wait 10 minutes.
Check the Pos cable at the TIPM, then take the TIPM off the brackets and roll it over. You will see a bundle of wires on a couple ground posts under/ around the TIPM area.
Are you looking for a new or used TIPM?
Either way you need to make sure is comes with programming in it already.
A used one has to come from a Nitro with the same engine. 99% of the time it will allow you to start the rig and get it to a dealer to have your VIN specific programming installed.
If you buy new/reman on line, be sure to ask specifically if it come with your VIN specific programming installed.

I have a 2010 nitro 2WD and it has electrical problems which I feel are related to the tipm

Horn keeps going off
Door lock will lock with the key fob but not unlock.
Battery drains
Windows will roll down on there own.
The AC has randomly stopped working.

Now I just sent in my tipm to a shop that rebuilds them but they called saying that everything checks out 100% ok what my tipm.

Where do I go from here? I need to fix this thing so I can sell it.
