    I recently bought a 2014 R/T. I replaced the battery, which went dead. Right after the new battery, now I have absolutely nothing but interior dome lights and the smart windows work. The car acts like there’s no battery in it at all! I had it towed to a local dodge dealership, and now they tell me that the TIPM is toast- power going in, but nothing coming out. Tech by-passed it, and she fired right up- dying from no juice to the computer/no fuel.
    Has anyone else has an issue like this? Any help would be great...

    The dealer so far has been great to work with.
    On the other hand, evidently this TIPM issue has been going on with not only challengers, but many other models that CJD offers. Yet no recall to correct the problem. CJD did a voluntary recall on 2 models, not all- totally unacceptable. This tells me that CJD knew that this would be an issue they could make money on, leaving customers backed into a corner with a repair bill.
    I don’t think there is any need for a private message...
