TIPM Recall and Wipers?

Last week the wipers on our '07 Wrangler refused to go off. My husband has to pull the fuse to get them off and then put it in if he needs them on.
We took it in today for the G40 recall (never got anything on the G25 TIPM), asked them to check the wipers.
The dealership called and said the entire TIPM needs to be replaced for $612!
Does anyone have any idea what is going on? If the whole thing is bad, why are the wipers the only thing being affected? Is it possible that something else is going on?
Is there a cheaper fix than having the dealership take care of it?
HELP!!

Shouldn't this be a warranty issue if you bought it new? Perhaps the dealership needs to be coerced into doing the work.

damn that sux, before I pay that kind of cash I would get a second opinion atleast. If the wipers are the only thing being effect I would just put a switch on the wiper fuse (no joke) and run the switch inside the cab to make it easier then having a swap the fuse every time it rains. How is the warrany gone already? did you buy it used or does it just have a lot of miles on it already?

a lot of miles...highway miles, but plenty of them b/c of a long commute.

What's a TIPM, where to find recalls/TSBs

I was wondering what TIPM (totally integrated power module) meant and where to find recalls and TSBs.

In case anyone else had the same question.

Had typical problem with TIPM. Wipers and washer went nuts, just as everyone describes. Ordered TIPM thru Amazon.com for $228.00 including 2 day shipping. Removed old one and installed new one in about 10 minutes. Turned switch on for 20 secnd learn mode, then turned it off for 30 seconds.
Engine cranked up and everything worked perfect with no dealer programming.
Thanks to everyone for their input.

TIPM Question

Has anyone had to replace the TIPM more than once or does the aftermarket part fix the problem once and for all?
