The fuse cox under the hood. Some of the relays can be disconnected from the bcm control. Cut the relay coil line. Have power line soldered to one side of relay coil. Solder a wire to it ,run wire to toggle switch other side of switch is hooked to ground.
Now you have independent control of that circuit. You might not want to mess with all relays obviously but. High beam, wiper low, rear wiper horn ,park light.You could eliminate the need to replace the b c m.
Using a plymouth or dodge pcm with bcm in a chrysler.
Is a good way to keep you from getting stranded.
Nothing like having to sleep in a wall mart parking lot for 2 days until i could get towed home.Some kids were fooling around with a phone app and set off several cars doors locked lights flashing horns blowing.
A few had to be towed to the dealer for repair. No love loss here in bypass of bcm functions that no longer work. Going to start with a battery disconnect switch. Bypass one relay at a time. Will keep you posted on how that works.
Just replaced both front half shafts ball joints all 4 tie rods.Fun ,note in a w d you have to refill final drive and add 2 quarts of atf+ 4 to trans.refilled both front strutts with fluid by using a sef tapping 8 mm screw it worked well

Relocated the battery behind the drivers seat.
Lowers center of gravity.used 2 guage wire.
Batt disconnect switch.Ground to seat belt bolt.Also van has no hood did not want battery easy target for theft.Has anybody take notice to the weight of the wiper assembly?
It would be nice to use. Vacuum powered wiper?Like to find a lighter wiper motor wiper assembly to further improve center of gravity.Tha unit is a nuisance.Always in the way. A chevy venture has the motor near the fender.Going to investigate.Replaced all tie rods.Brake booster
Both front drive shafts ball joints all big jobs
Aligned front end with adjustable mop stick for toe in/out.Want to re-engineer this van. A w d
Limited.All repairs have paid off with more pleasure in driving.Thinking about super charging the 3.8 with a gas powered leaf blower.Would have to extend the pull rope and choke cable in to the passenger compartment.Front struts working much better with the lucas oil recharge.
