TIPM & Repairs

Choose below from New, Rebuilt, or Used TIPMs, or Repair Services if offered for your TIPM. Some model year vehicles may have more than one version of TIPM. Verify that the numeric digits in the part number shown match your 2003 Dodge RAM 2500’s original TIPM. If unsure, call us with your VIN# ready.

Special Notes on this Vehicle

  • In 2002 – 2005 RAM trucks, the fuse & relay box is actually referred to as an “IPM”.
  • Attached to the side of all IPMs is a separate, detachable, pop-tart sized metallic device, called the FCM.
  • In almost all problem cases, it is the IPM that is at fault.  Common symptoms include rear external lights issues, trailer lights, headlamp issues, signal issues, and being stuck in a lower gear (limp mode), although many other electrical system faults can also occur.
  • The overwhelming majority of IPM failures are caused by corrosion that begins on the IPM circuit board in a few very predictable locations.  A poor case design that allows moisture, road salts, etc to reach the circuit board and damage the traces is the culprit.
  • If we do not have a pre-rebuilt IPM below for your vehicle, rest assured we can fix virtually any IPM problem via our Total IPM Overhaul repair service.
  • 2003 RAM model 2500 and 3500’s share a common pool of IPMs and will very often bear 2 different part numbers on the same IPM.  You may find that your old IPM has one or the other, or even both part numbers on sticker(s) affixed to it.    If either or both numbers match the IPM number shown below, select that IPM.
    • 56045765  / 56049019 – is with Oval Plugs for early 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel vehicles.
    • 56049011 /  56045433  is with Oval Plugs for early 2003 Gas vehicles.  It has more features than the above IPM and can substitute for the 56045765  / 56049019
    • 56049680 – is with Oval Plugs for early 2003 Gas vehicles.
    • 68005479 – is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Gas vehicles.
    • 56051037 / 68005476 – is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Gas vehicles.  Both part numbers refer to the same IPM and are completely interchangeable.
    • 05026033 / 05026034 – is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Gas vehicles.  This IPM actually bears 2 consecutive part numbers, one ending in 33 and the other ending in 34.   Both numbers are completely interchangeable, and often both numbers will even appear on separate stickers affixed to the same IPM.
    • 05026031 / 05026032 is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Diesel vehicles.  This IPM actually bears 2 consecutive part numbers, one ending in 31 and the other ending in 32.   Both numbers are completely interchangeable, and often both numbers will even appear on separate stickers affixed to the same IPM.
    • 05026035 / 05026036 is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Diesel vehicles.  This IPM actually bears 2 consecutive part numbers, one ending in 35 and the other ending in 36.   Both numbers are completely interchangeable, and often both numbers will even appear on separate stickers affixed to the same IPM.
    • 56051039 – is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Diesel vehicles.
    • 56051038 / 56051040 – is with Square Plugs for later 2003 Diesel vehicles.
