I dont have any choice in this matter, I drive a 2013 Chrysler 200 for a work car. They provide, I dont bitch about a free car usually BUT this thing is in for the SECOND PCM in a year. First time it quit it took the cooling fans, a/c and trans control module with it. This time its simple. Just turn signals are affected but its not just a bulb. WHY does the pcm control the turn signals?

I think it is called the TIPM and looks like a fusebox but is actually another small computer under the hood, heard they will go out as easy as a trailer light wiring gone wrong or too much draw such as to many trailer lights or accessories. Dave

If you think it's only Chrysler that chooses to run lights,body functions,etc. from some sort of module, you're sadly mistaken. I had an '09 Pont. G6(REAL BIG POS)that had terminal "fretting" issues at the BCM causing all kinds of lighting problems.

A "Chrysler 200" sounds sorta "breakdown-ish" even in just its name LOL....saying that, a Guy over here just spent $160K on a Merc and threw it back after a week because the alarm wont cancel and the Main Stealer cannot fix it.....told him to wait for a HELLCAT!.......:p

We are supposed to be getting new company cars. Chevy Malibu's.. I work for an insurance company and we do a lot of safety stuff.. So they are putting safety people in a car involved in the largest recall in automotive history for killing people? Some decisions from above I just dont understand.
