Broke Phi Broke

Here's one for ya's...

'02 Dakota V8

Recently the following started NOT working:
-Headlights (& dash lights)
-Intermittent Wipers
-Door Locks
-Interior Lights


It all worked on my way to work, 9 hrs later the door locks worked when unlocking it, then after starting it, all the above stopped working.

I looked at the obvious fuses, but there has to be something main that controls all these modules that i cannot identify.

Anyone?

Well, the wipers are only powered by fuse 5 on the left end of the dash....the power door locks also are on this fuse, among others.

Interior lights don't use fuse 5, and neither does the headlights.

Damn, now yer gonna make me look at these diagrams aren't you? Please post right away if you figure it out, because I will be looking at diagrams to see what all 4 of those things have in common.

All 4 things have the central timer module in common.

It's under the left kick panel.

Make sure you have power to it and ground. There is a ground for it near it. Should have a black wire and a black with green wire going to it (the ground screw). Might have a few other wires coming from other places...like a black wire from the headlight switch.

There is another ground coming out of the module, it has a black/green wire and goes up to the lower center of the dash.

I would guess your remote doesn't work to unlock the doors and it won't honk the horn using panic but will honk the horn if you push the horn button on the wheel.

Ok, check fuse 5 (20 amp) and 11 (10 amp) in the dash, and fuse 3 (20 amp) and fuse 12 (20 amp) under the hood.

Alright Man! you are the person i imagined would come through! I will be checking these out at lunch today and post up immediately!

...and Yes - the remote doesn't function at this point, and boy, never realized how much you depend on headlights at dusk and in the mornings!

I read somewhere to have the power disconnected when pulling the fuses under the hood, is that suggested, recommended, or mandatory?

p.s. - Thank-you!

From a compilation of sources (your included - thanks again!), it looks to be the Central Timer Module (CTM)

Durango

Hopeful part number (to be verified):
P/N 56045453AC (2001 Durango)

Now to just tear apart my left kick panel and identify the offender!

Well i removed power to the unit and reseated all the connections and everything is now working again!

Thank-you for pointing me in the right direction MuddyPaws - it must be something in the name!
