It has been several years now but after extensive research I have decided to take action. I was driving my pick-up in town when I lost my gauge lights and I noticed at the same time I lost all my maker lights on the vehicle. I pulled over and found a blown fuse in the fuse box and replaced it with a new one. Right away it blew again only this time it also blew the cercit in the totally integrated power module, wichata left me no choice but to bypass the curcit and get power to my lights form another source. The next day I went to the dealer and was told it is a common problem and the tipm is $850 that don't include the cost of replacing it and then programing it ti the vehicle. So I decided I wasn't going to pay that much for something that I had already fixed by bypassing the problem. Then a few years later I was driving down the highway around 65 mph at night when I lost my high beam headlights upon further diagnosis I found it to be the tipm at fault again. I spoke with the dealer about it and they told me it too was a common problem. So I filed a complaint with Chrysler about both issues and told them they needed to get it fixed and they told me they would look into it. So I let it go without pressing the issue any further. As to my knowledge nothing has been done. But after extensive research I have found more serious problems with the tipm, that Dodge needs to acknowledge and bite the bullet and fix the problems. Due to these issues being major safety problems. (I. E. Loss of wipers, loss of low beam headlights, and turn signal flashing the wrong way).

Turn signals on a 2003 Dodge 3500 crewcab 4x4 diesel truck when activated, actually flash the opposite direction than the inside controls (turn signal lever). It's safer to use no turn signal at all.

I have a 2005 Dodge ram. The turn signal started to signal opposite of the direction selected. Even though this is a common problem in this truck there is no safety recall and I had to pay $188. 00 to fix it at the dealer.
The contact owns a 2006 Dodge 3500 one ton. When the left turn signal is activated, the indicator on the instrument panel indicates that the vehicle is making a right turn. The failure can also be seen from the exterior of the vehicle. When making a left turn, vehicles in the rear are misled by the right turn signal illuminating. The failure and current mileages were 58,000. Updated 10/03/08 updated 10/06/08.
Turn signal sometimes shows opposite of what is selected. Phone interview update (8/26/2008): mr. Madison was on the left turn lane waiting to turn left with the turn signal on. The motorist behind him horned and told mr. Madison that his pickup had the right side turn signal flashing. Mr. Madison was puzzled because he had moved the turn signal stalk down to turn left. On that day and that day only, the turn signals were flashing in the opposite direction to what mr. Madison had selected. The turn signal errors appeared on the dash indicators as well as the exterior indicators.
Turn signals flash erratically. Left turn signal sometimes signals right and visa versa. Phone interview update (6/26/2008): mr. Llarena said that he had noticed a total of about five occasions that the dash turn signal indicators have flashed in the opposite direction than he had intended. Two of the five occasions had occurred in the month since he reported the problem to NHTSA. The turn signals had also came on by themselves. When that happened, he jiggled the turn signal stalk to turn the signal off. He c0uld not think of any common thread or circumstance in all those occasions which may have triggered the turn signal anomolies. The problem has not been corrected because he couldn't dupicate it.
When left turn signal is selected right one will flash on occasion. This has happened several times since I have owned the truck. I have owned the truck since new and all repairs have been done by one dealership.
Turn signal not showing correct direction or not working at all. Wet weather may have something to do with it. Tilt steering wheel usually affects the situation.

Turn the left turn signal on, and every so often, the right one will flash at the same time. People behind me get confused and try to go around me on the left and almost hit me. Nov. 20th, 2006 is when problem started.
