Default 2000 Dodge Ram Electrical Problems

I have the same problem with my 2000 1500 Ram. The reason for the problem is the CTM Assy. It controls many things such as the mirrors, seats, door locks , lights, and engine disable function just to mention a few. The CTM is located under the dash next to the ash tray just above the gas pedal. It is a black box that is approximately 5"x5"x1 3/4" and has two heavy wiring harnesses connected to it. The CTM had problems with some radio frequencies which would cause it to malfunction. According to the dealer, a new one costs $372.00, so I am looking for a used one. Also, the dealer said that each CTM is specific to your truck (dependent on the truck's equipment) so you need to get the exact SN.
