Default 2015 ram. What parts to keep in Faraday? EMP

Advertise Here

I have a 2015 ram Hemi. That will be my main BOV. Aside from keeping a preprogrammed ECM in a Faraday cage. Is there any other electronics that I should keep also in case of and emp that would require to get back up in running in the event that an emp did affect my vehicle. Thanks

Assuming an EMP does similar damage as a lightning strike, the entire electrical system.

If you have a pull your own parts type junk yard around, perhaps that would lessen the cost of the spares, and also familiarize you with where the spares go.

Some vehicles have lots of semiconductor chips scattered all over the vehicle that control brakes, engine, transmission, lights, collision restraint system, etc. Might be dozens of modules. But likely only a few that are absolutely needed to run the vehicle.
