No one Does a More Thorough TIPM Rebuild than MAK’s

Most people consider a MAK’s Rebuilt TIPM better than New. While some companies that dabble in TIPM repair merely inspect &  clean a TIPM and call it “Refurbished”, MAK’s undertakes a true rebuild from scratch on every Rebuilt or Overhauled TIPM.

  1. The TIPM is completely disassembled.
  2. Case is ultrasonically treated in a chemical wash that removes road salts, grease, dirt, and restores the casing and to a “like-new” finish to the extent possible.
  3. Every fuse is inspected and replaced if needed with the latest revision from the original equipment manufacturer.
  4. Every internal relay is tested for Ohms response. Any relay that tests even slightly out of spec is replaced with latest updated revision.  Always all OEM Parts.
  5. We ALWAYS replace the Fuel Pump Relay whether it tests OK or not. We don’t trust that sucker for one minute since the originals fail so often in their lifetime.  The good news is that the latest OEM revision of that relay is substantially more reliable than the originals.  In this respect, our rebuilt TIPMs are a better buy than a vintage “New” TIPM.
  6. All external relays (the grey cubes you can see with the TIPM lid removed) are tested as well. Any that fail Ohms tests are replaced with the latest Rev.  All replacements are updated latest-revision OEM parts…always.
  7. Power and logic boards are inspected for any possible corrosion or broken “traces”.  Corrosion, if present, is mitigated. Traces are repaired with lasting fixes that will outlive your vehicle.
  8. TIPM is reassembled and bench-tested
  9. TIPM is then tested in a live vehicle. Every electrical feature is tested under real-world conditions.
  10. TIPM is then digitally “cleared” on our proprietary equipment that erases the prior VIN (if relevant for that style of TIPM).   It readies the TIPM to accept your VIN and to synchronize automatically upon installation without requiring Dealer “reprogramming”.
  11. Every TIPM comes with clear step-by-step installation instructions you can do yourself, and free unlimited telephone support with a highly seasoned TIPM expert, 9-6 Monday thru Friday US pacific time, at 818-798-5558.  Call us should there be any installation complications or questions.
  12. Every Rebuilt TIPM comes with a 1-Year Warranty and free Priority Shipping.
  13. We ship USPS priority mail, included free at our expense, with Tracking# emailed to you automatically upon  shipment.
  14. You’ll receive the TIPM in 1-3 days with our included free shipping option. At extra expense, Overnight Shipping is available at checkout (Request overnight by 2pm PST, please).
