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.
The same thing happened to my 99 ram, like you I gace up looking for it after spending 200.00 looking for it, could you let me know if that was it? thanks
