Fuse should have blown. Very strange take it to a professional installer like senior stereo or anything like that and have them look at it. They will know why it blew

Ran aftermarket HID's on my 07 300c (essentially the same wiring) for three years, no relays used, just Capacitor Adapter Harness's. Ran fine, never had any issues.

Then you state "Im just really pissed off this challenger seems to continuously have electrical problems." It sounds like you have caused and created the problems.

Just remember what goes around comes around

Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM)


For newer 2008+ Dodge cars do not add electrical loads to the TIPM unit. All factory adjustments are programmed into this unit. Adding anything non OEM and not programmed ensures it will go boom - if not now eventually in the future! Run new wires from battery and make your own fuse box for a few bucks.

yeah they said it was the TIPM, so this thing is to blame? I got the kit thru ddm tuning website, so what I'm gathering is if i don't do something to adjust this, if i were to add an aftermarket sound system which will surely cause voltage fluctuations then this thing will short out again?

and also I've had some issues electrically related to grounding problems

Just a thought here but if you had not modified your Dodge by adding aftermarket HID headlights, maybe it would not have so many electrical problems. Maybe the next vehicle your purchase will have factory installed (and warrantied) HID headlights.
