Electrical/IOD fuse issued?

Experienced clicking noises on my 2007 Ram 1500 upon starting vehicle about a month ago, along with minor electrical failure (radio, cabin lights, etc.). Identified IOD fuse as source of failure (loose?) and jiggled it around back into the slot - did not experience further issues until a couple days ago when clicking resumed. Experienced complete electrical failure and engine dying yesterday, so I replaced IOD fuse. Clicking noises, electrical failure, and engine dying have persisted since, and the truck died right when I got home last night.

Any ideas on what's causing the random electrical failures? Thanks in advance for any thoughts.

This could be anything! A module could be taking out the bids line like Nathan’s truck was and it did the same stuff but it wouldn’t even start. Your going to need to do some decent diag here.

When it does will it start right back up?

If I pull the IOD fuse up and push it back into the slot, everything comes back and it starts/runs for a little while with no issues. Just hard to pinpoint what's causing the problem. Last night I was walking to the truck and hit the unlock button on the remote and that worked, but then right as I opened the door everything was dead.

Was wondering if there was a quick fix but sounds like some diag are in order...

The tipm or fuse box is a known issue in the Rams you just don’t hear about it much but it is very common to fail. Pull the box up and unplug the connectors on the bottom and make sure there is no pin corrosion first!

Heard many tales about the dreaded TIPM - I will definitely pull it up and check the pins first though. Appreciate your input!
