I took my 2014 (v6) into dealership for intermittent check engine and traction control lights coming on. Dealership wants about $2400.00 to replace TIPM. Is buying one online - programmed to VIN a viable option?

As long as this was a competent diagnosis, you could save money installing a TIPM yourself.
Disconnect the neg (-) terminal of the battery, dismount and unplug the old one, plug in and mount the new one, reconnect the battery and perform a hard reset. Your TIPM part # should be on a label affixed to the unit.

There are services online for exchanging/rebuilding these. I have no experience with any of them. I have done business with United Radio in Syracuse NY, an authorized Chrysler electronic repair depot.

There should be a fault code stored in the ABS module. We need to start with this code.
The dealer may have guessed wrong. Did a shop replace it or did you do the work?

I will borrow my friends scanner again. The dealership was ready to lighten my bank acount by $2400, so I replaced the unit myself. It may be possible that I did not have a solid enough connection for the positive and negative leads for the hard reset.
