I used the under-$40 Dorman resonator ... it's holding fine.

The newer version of the glow plug controller is an internal redesign that avoids many of the failures you're probably having.

Would you happen to have the part # of the new version on that controller?
Thx

I think it's Dodge: 68013182AC MB: A6429005801

.. but may have been superseded/upgraded since then.

If you ask a dealer parts desk, their system will point at the replacement if given the old number.

Europarts-sd.com has the OEM version (i.e. no MB star on it):
https://europarts-sd.com/glowplugcon...t2002-2006.asp
and/or an entire kit of 5 Bosch plugs and the OEM controller:

If you're handy with a soldering iron you can repair the older style GP module fairly cheaply.

If you are repairing an old controller, go easy on the solder. Too much heat can fry the adjacent circuit components.
I successfully bypassed several blown fuse links in mine, wiring up 20amp fuses and saving myself the cost of a new controller. I think I used the funds for my backup camera?

New controller, I could not spare a few to three hours to solder up a fix to a 15 year old GP controller....... this is money well spent for a forever fix.........

As others said, you don’t really need to use glow plugs in Florida so there’s no immediate concern. Have fun with your new van
Thanks I'll check out the ground straps. I have been getting P0672 and P0673 once in while, but still starting fine. That's new to me...you don't really need to use glow plugs in Florida. Or just build/find a heated garage if you live in a cold place?

Age of the controller doesn't matter to me. I'm open to repair any module in my T1N's if able.

i enjoy tinkering. I've repaired the 2004 and 2006 module now. Using your listed price with tax, shipping, I saved about 250 bucks.

Do we know if the new style modules are forever?

Back to topic.

Default Re: New Van: New codes I need help - GP

I ordered the new module and plugs.
Mainly cause I want the check engine light off . I’d rather the Engine light come on and alarm me something is wrong rather than not knowing cause it’s always on. Get me?

Hopefully after this , the van should be code free and healthy again.
