Default Battery change
So im new here with my 2011 ram and reading through various threads and i came across one guy saying that he changed his battery and somehow shorted or ruined a tpim (i dont know what that is) but that he had to take it to the dealer and get it fixed at a cost of$3500 WTF
So i just want to ask to be sure since i will be changing mine sometime soon is there a special technique / procedure other than what i have done for the last 35years. The last battery i changed was my 2005 Dodge magnum and had no problems.

Nothing special. Just don't ground the cables together, start and end with the negative cable, make sure you are connecting the proper cables to the proper post.
