Chrysler investigated over defective Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) in 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos

Attorneys are investigating allegations that 2011-2012 Jeep Grand Cherokees and Dodge Durangos were sold with a defective Totally Integrated Power Module (commonly referred to as TIPM).  This defect causes the vehicle to not be able to start, and if it does start to shut off without warning.  Apparently, Chrysler is aware of the problem but customers have been waiting for months or more to get a replacement TIPM because these are backordered.

If this has happened to you, please share your story.

If you are an owner of the above referenced vehicle experiencing difficulties with the TIPM and are interested in discussing your legal rights, please contact us via the contact a lawyer box below.

I had this problem. I was lied to and passed back and forth between Chrysler, Mopar (warranty) and the local dealership. It took them 2 months to replace it. I had to cancel a vacation and could not leave town while the problem was present, because basically everywhere I drove could have been the place I would get stranded. I have lots of very detailed information on my struggle with this if you want it. I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 42k miles. Had I not bought the extended warranty, I would have had to wait just as long, and had to pay over $1200.00. Even with the warranty, I had to pay $100.00 and wasted lots of time and effort.

Purchased my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee from a broker in August (August 16, 2013 to be exact). The vehicle had just under 36K miles. Within DAYS, the car had starting issues. After a phone call with a local dealer, I made an appointment. Was without a car for a day and was told it was the Passive Entry Module and that it needed to be flashed (despite my research telling me that it was the TIPM - total integrated power module). I had told the dealership that this was the issue but my information was dismissed. The very next morning I had the same hard starting issues. Over the past 2 months the issue has gotten worse. There have been two days where the fuel pump would not shut off, even when I was far away from the vehicle with my keys. There was also a day when my battery was completely drained. Both the fuel pump issue and the batter issue are a side effect of the TIPM issue.

Possible solutions: Contact Allen at AR Speedometer and Gauge (see below) who will repair for a fraction of the cost of a dealership. You will have to find a way to remove the TIPM yourself (or have a mechanic do so) and send it to him and then replace when he sends it back. However, there are several forums with the information on how to do this.

Also, place a call to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration to file a complaint which will lead to an investigation for a recall.
1-888-327-4236

Finally, call Jeep Customer Service to get a case number. This is supposed to expedite the delivery of the part.

Having the same issue I'm number 448 on the wait list out of thousands. No mechanic or dealer was able to solve the problem. I wasted money on a new battery, which isn't cheap for this car, and my car will not start. Fuel pump stays on while the car is off. I spoke to Chrysler customer service and they would not acknowledge this was a national problem but the part is on national back order. Didn't we bail these guys out???

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with TIPM issue. Won't cold start, stalls and dangerous on the highway. Getting runaround from Chrysler. We need to sue these bastards unless they recall. This is clearly a faulty part, they know it and are holding off as long as they can hoping the issue loses public support.

2013 grand cherokee about every three weeks will not start after several tries it starts up. Dealership mentioned the module saying it was on backorder but says there not sure if that's what it is wants me to keep driving it til it happens again. This has happened to me three times and three trips to the dealer ship

I own a 2011 Chrysler Town & Country with a defective tipm! It took Chrysler 2 days to figure it out and now they are telling me that it's not a common issue... Now I look it upon the Internet and find out there are several lawsuits against Chrysler for defective TIPMs! Chrysler wants me to buy a TIPM for $1200 + labor yet, the part only costs $300-400. I can't believe that a company such as Chrysler is so willing to rip off their customers, I wish there was a way to post this on a national news channel and/or newspapers to let everyone know the shady business this company is running.

I have a 2013 durango with 14k miles. My brake light and traction control light would come and off by themselves thought this was a result of a fender bender I had but dealer said no this is just a fluke. They ordered part and replaced it without any cost to me. I took truck home no problem but when I left after dark noticed that my fog lights would flash when I turned on my right turn signal. Took it back to dealer said it was tipm module of which was just replaced a few hours earlier. They said it has happened to get a bad module and need to replace again. I just want to know if this
is going to be an ongoing problem. I have only had my durango for 6 months and have been in a rental more than my own vehicle. This is my first brand new vehicle and has been a real headache

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee owner, purchased in March 2011 from Jeep/Chrysler dealer. Started having ignition startup issues around 52,000 miles. Jeep has been with dealer service center since Oct. 22, 2013. Started a customer case with Chrysler and TIPM module was determined to be defective and replacment has been ordered. been waiting for several weeks with no end in sight. Chrysler was unwilling to provide any financial assistance since the vehicle was outside of the base 36K Mile wty (which is pathetic to begin with compared to other car manufacturers who offer anywhere from 50k - 100k base wty) Dealer has agreed to split the costs of the part and labor with us and offered us a loaner vehicle (07' PT Cruiser) but this is just because we have a good realtionship with the dealership. I have been calling Chrysler daily and am now waiting on an assigned case manager to call back to discuss additional financial assistance but not holding my breath. Jeep/Chrysler customer service# 800-992-1997 for those who are interested in contacting them for a case number.

2011 Durango CrewLux, 18,000 miles, purchased new. Same no start/motoring/can't turn off without placing in gear. Very intermitent. Fault lights would iluminate, but went out. Dealership could not duplicate after having car 10 days. When I tried to pick it up - failed exactly as described (fortunately with the dealership rep right beside). They ordered TIPM to fix. Been another two weeks, told on backorder nationally with delivery first week Dec. 18,000 miles on this car-what crap.

2011 jeep Cherokee. Actually was able to get a new TIPM about 2 months ago. It gets even better everyone. After a brand new TIPM, the blinker on the left side goes out and the brake lights go out. This has caused some sort of electrical short. Wait NO it gets better! My friend also has the same year car V6 and his TIPM was replaced 1 month ago and his fog light is acting as blinker after his car suddenly has no blinkers or brake lights on the highway. I've owned 10 German cars and at 40k for this piece of junk is unacceptable. I want my money back!!

Same problem as everyone else has described, very frustrated, and I have only had this Jeep Grand for a week. It will not start until the third or fourth time and has just started dying at intersections this week. I traded for the Jeep from Moore Auto sales in Moore, Oklahoma, which I believe they new about this problem since all they wanted to do is push the extended warranty on us, which I did not buy, now I wish I had. I will never go to Moore Auto Sales again and may never buy another jeep that is if I can get rid of this one!

I have a 2011 jeep Cherokee. After having german and asian cars I decided to buy an american car in case anything happens I should not be worried to have replaced or fixing defect parts.
More then a week ago my car didn’t start, had it towed and was told that the TIPM has to be replaced. I was also told, that they can not find the piece and I should call Chrysler direct to complain because this is not the first time that this has happened. Of course I called Chrysler and learned that the car is my responsibility and that I have to come up with the cost of a rental car and the repair cost of some $ 1300.00
This cannot be right and I am so very frustrated.

My vehicle is experiencing this same issue. I had a mechanic check my vehicle wednesday (11-27-13) and today (11-29-2013) and there are no codes coming up. My truck is a 2011 dodge durango and it won't crank sometimes then when it does crank it shuts down. My mechanic believes this is due to a faulty tipm module and recommeded I call the factory because he showed me on carcomplaints.com that many owners are experiencing the same issue. I called mopar and they said its not on recall and thatbecause I am at 36,317 miles I am no longer covered under warranty because my warranty ended at 36,000 miles. This is crazy. If I were the only owner experiencing this issue I would not complain but this is an obivious defective part.

We have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 4x4. When my wife or I utilize the remote key-start or push-to-start the Jeep starter initiates repeatedly but fails to start. When in the vehicle, we usually engage the shifter out of park in order to stop the starter. On subsequent attempts, the jeep will start up with limited delay. This typically happens during colder weather. I attempted to replace the starter relay fuse as this has helped other owners in similar situations, but the problem continued.

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it is doing the same thing, I took it for an oil change and it would not start at first the technician was giving me the run around. I managed to look up the issue and ran into this I told them but would not acknowledge that it was until I threaten to call the BBB and put it on Facebook. They checked and sure enough it is the TIPM issue. They finally fessed up and told me that they have been having these issues left and right with jeeps and other cars. They place the order I call CC and I get a case number. I just got a manager and told me that the part should be here next week. The only issue is that my car no longer starts now battery is drained and I bet that fuel pump will go out soon because of this.

I own a 2011 Dodge Durango Express and I am having the same issue.

I find myself in the same situation that you guys do. Want can I do to remedy the situation.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee . Same problem with the TIPM and was quoted $1100. My car only has 40K and actually stalled on a very busy street while taking my son to school. I am terrified to take it on the freeway with my two kids and have it stall and die and possibly be rear ended . The Company needs to do a recall asap and not expect us to pay over a thousand dollars and a newer car for a faulty part that they probably were aware of.

2012 5.7 liter 4x4 Overland, all the bells and whistles. 32k. Easy entry/Easy exit system stopped working out of nowhere. Truck was having trouble starting manually or with the autostart. It finally just left my wife stuck after her shift at the hospital at 11pm in 10 degree weather. Not cool. I dont trust dealers I wont even bother calling them. I got a guy that will repair the existing TIPM in Oklahoma. It's about 300 bucks. I will have it back in a week. I've gotten great feedback from other Jeep owners reguarding his service. I'd rather roll the dice on my own than depend on those dealer dudes.

My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited nearly had to be towed to the dealer today after my wife tried for a half hour to get it started after leaving a Toys 'R' Us this afternoon. Luckily it started and she was able to drive it there. She has had trouble all week long and and this morning it took her 15 minutes to get it started and then it gave her trouble again a few hours later. The dealer just told me it would $1500 to replace the TIPM!!! Unacceptable!

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that is also having trouble started, particularly in colder weather. Over the Thanksgiving holiday the car wouldn't start and had AAA come out to tell me it wasn't the battery or anything else he could see. After 12 times trying to get in started, it finally turned over. I immediately took it to a dealership in Morristown, NJ and they took a look at it. As the car was warmed up, they couldn't duplicate the problem, so I paid $128 dollar for nothing. However they did tell me that it was probably the TIPM and it was on backorder for 2 months......insane! Sure enough the next morning it did the same thing. Finally I got it to turn over after 12 tries and was able to get back home. I did some research and found out about all the problems. Gave a call over to a local dealer and Chrysler today and they said they won't do anything even though the representative acknowledged the problem....WOW. I fear that the car will stall out at a bad time and put my family and I in danger.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. wouldn't start on the first time. changed the alternator. then changed the battery. turns out it is the TIPM. They quoted me $1400 for parts and labor. But of course the part is on back order. I want to sue, or at least get a refund back because obviously there is something wrong.

Hello all...here is my story that I posted on Facebook!

Hello Jeep

First off let me say how much I LOVE your Jeep Grand Cherokee line-up! Beautiful, Sexy yet rugged vehicle! I purchased my 2011 Limited from Cherry Hill Chrysler Dodge Jeep with the extended Chrysler Mopar 5 year 50000 mile warranty in October 2013.

Recently, on the very coldddd East Coast Winters I have notice that my Jeep will not start from the Key Fob. However, when it does start or attempts to start you will hear some clicking like it wants to but does now. With that being said, I decided to do some digging of my own to see if other Jeep owner have experienced a problem similar to mine. To my surprise it appears that I am not alone. After a while of reading it appears that I could be experience the potential symptoms of a defective “Totally Integrated Power Module (commonly referred to as TIPM). This defect causes the vehicle to not be able to start, and if it does start to shut off without warning.” This was disturbing as I drive 150 every day for work, not an issue that I want in the back of my head!

After reading about the TIPM, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep do not own the rights to this part and that the “Manufacturer” (unknown) is going bankrupt due to having to replace these parts.

Now...my question is to you all, why have you let it come this far? I am quite sure your whole organization has some kind of foot print in the social media/internet arena and to my conclusion, it feels like you know and choose not to do anything about it! From the articles that I have read people have contacted Chrysler to report the issue and no assistance has been given to these people! Why treat your customers that way who pay a pretty penny for the Grand Cherokee’s (which are not CHEAP)?

For your reference here are 2 very informative/interesting sites for which I have read about peoples complaints!

http://www.gotaclassaction.com/chrysler-investigated-over-defective-totally-integrated-power-module-tipm-in-2011-2012-jeep-grand-cherokees-and-dodge-durangos/

OR

http://www.edmunds.com/jeep/grand-cherokee/2011/consumer-discussions.html

In closing, I would like to say that if there is anything I have learned from my 8 years’ experience in the Market Research Industry is if you do good by your customers they will do good to you! I am pretty sure if any family members of employees of Jeep have a loved one involved in a crash due to one of these TIPM’s failing the problem would be quickly addressed?? Hopefully, that will never happen and you all will hear the voice of your customers. What your customers want is for you all to acknowledge the issue and do something to help us out! I know my story may be just another drop in the bucket but its worth a shot expressing myself here on FaceBook!

Yours Truly,
Kyle Freeman

I just experienced this issue for the first time it did it twice in a row luckily I took a video while my wife tried to start it. After the second time it started right up.

I too have the extended chrysler car warranty and while yes the part is covered I was informed by the dealer that they will replace it but will have to get the Jeep to them so they can duplicate the problem...That is where my issue lies. Since the problem is intermittent and knowing my luck the truck will not do it at the dealership but will do it as soon as I drive off the lot.

But I am getting a TON of traction on Facebook on the Jeep Page...check it out...like it...comment there...they are SUPER responsive...I posted and got a response from Corporate in under 5 minutes. I am pending a discussion with them so they can "directly" address me issue...lets see what happens...

I have had my GC Overland in the dealer several times in the past year for non-starting issues. It currently has less than 31K miles on it. This last time my wife was left stranded for 2 hours in the cold, with my two small children, until I arrived and disconneted the battery to reset the TIPM. I brought the vehicle to the dealer this past Monday and they have advised that the part was being delivered to them on Thursday. . . Thursday came and went and still no part. They claim to have the part arriving on Friday (today, which is NOT likely considering the backorder). I keep getting the run around with no information, so decided to search the web and found this. Someone, HELP.


Phillip W. said

I dropped off the jeep GC Thursday and today (friday) I was called by the service dept and told me they cannot find anything wrong with my GC and the problem is intermittent so the next time it happens basically deal with it because if I took it back to the service dept it would not show signs of TIPM failure. So I asked what happens if it failed while I was driving it, he advised me this issue will only arise when I tried to start because it's possibly a bad connection to the fuel pump when starting. So I have a $40k paperweight that drives when it wants to.

Same TIPM issue here with 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee (32K), especially in the cold. Luckily its covered under manufacturer warranty since I'm under 36K, but now I get to drive a mini van for a month or two, maybe longer depending on how long it takes to get the part in! My dealership said there is about one hundred people ahead of me (as of today, 12/15/13). Thankfully, they haven't announced a recall or it could be twice as long! Now go hire a competent 3rd party contractor and start manufacturing the $h!t out of them already! Come one, chop chop.

It's a shame because I love this car, the service, everything. Figured there might be too many bells n whistles squeezed in there.

I've only had my 2011 Dodge Durango for 7months and it already messed up.. I was told it was the TIPM and it is NOT a cheap fix. Just for the part its $1200 plus $100 to reprogram and another fee for the work which in total is $1700!! To me its a crazy high price to pay to fix something on a vehicle you just purchased a few months ago. The place where i got it oviously didnt care and the warranty already expired so im stuck wich an expensive suv that i still have to spend almos $2000 just to fix it.

I can not trust this truck to go anywhere. Chrysler just plays dumb and ignores the issue. The sad part is nothing ever gets fixed at the dealer, just change parts.

For the past few months I have been having issues starting my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The push to start in the car won't work but I can start it by using the auto start on my key fob. Recently even that stopped working. When I do get it to start sometimes it will shut off just after getting out of a parking spot.

I took my vehicle to jeep yesterday and they kept it overnight so they could replicate a cold start. First off they said I needed a software update ($170) but when they found out the issue resided with the TIPM unit and that it needed to be replaced ($350) they knocked off $20 from my software update... so nice of them, especially considering they knew about this seemingly common problem. They said they could have it fixed by tonight.

Honestly I love the feel and look of my vehicle but I've had some electronic issues before with this vehicle and it seems like I'm going to have to pay quite a bit to maintain it down the road. Can't wait for the cracked piston! Hopefully it happens before 100000 miles.

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X and was having an issue with the wipers not shutting off when I turn the car off and take the key out. I have to pull the fuse to get them to turn off..This posed as a serious safety issue, since if it started raining, I would literally not be able to see out my windshield and would have to pull over to lift the hood and re-insert the fuse. I have recently been quoted $900 for this part but it is on an indefinite recall. With all the consumers affected this should be a recalled item and serious consideration of a Class Action Lawsuit. Chrysler needs to step up to the plate and fix this ASAP!

2008 Chrysler Town & Country. Shuts off when I am driving. the other day I was driving 65 miles an hour with my 4 year old and 2 year old in carseats in the back. Van shut off by itself! Horn was blaring, wipers were squirting and wiping. Lost power and everything including breaks and steering were non existent. Time before that, same thing happened and one of the side doors just flew open.

Same deal. I moved from warm southern California where I had the starting issue. After 5 or 6 tries she would fire up. 2011 Durango Citadel 5.7L. Then one day the battery was dead. Replaced battery.. And dead two days later. Moved to Montana a few weeks ago. She won't start at all in freezing weather. Just turns and turns. One temps are above 25 she'll start after several tries. I can't even drive my vehicle. And Chrysler seems so inconsiderate when you call. It's time for a recall our a major class action suit to pay for these repairs. If an item is in backorder that is a clear sign there are a multitude of problems. Mine had 47000 miles when the problem started

2010 Chrystler Town and Country and i'm being told we need to replace the TIPM. The headlights won't come on sometimes or come on for no reason. We were stranded in the dark on Christmas night because of it. The dealer is telling me it's safe to drive home but i'm terrified after reading about this issue. It seems many websites have caught on to this being a common problem. Chrysler is closed today so i'm unable to reach anyone for any type of assistance. I can't believe they're allowed to let you take an unsafe vehicle from the service department. I'm going to ask them to put something in writing saying it's safe to drive. This is ridiculous and i'm very sad because I've loved this van and have taken many trips with it. I will definitely be fighting to either have it paid for by Chrysler or be reimbursed for any out of pocket costs.

Vehicle is haveing issues starting, either by remote start or by pushing the start buttom. There have been many documented cases of this on the 2011 model year. All have been attributed to the failure of the "TOTALLY INTEGRATED CONTROL MODULE" TICM. Contacted the dealership they say it is not under warrenty and there is no recall for it either. The dealership states repairs have to be paid by me.

I have a 2007 Jeep Wrangler X and have an issue with the wipers coming on or going off without warning. All the idiot lights come on and the engine stalls. Sometimes restarts in seconds sometimes wont start for 15 minutes or until I get out and tap on the module. Has happened in a winter storm in heavy traffic. Very annoying and dangerous.

2011 Dodge Durango... We are also having the same problems. Trouble starting. We purchased it new in March of 2011. We have been having this problem since May 2012. It takes 8-15 tries to get the car started. It keeps getting worse. My car also has a "fan sound" after it is turned off. It runs down the battery and battery dies everyday.

Have been having the same issues for over a year. My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee starts when it wants to and is not reliable. The dash lights up, the remote start does not work, and sometimes I am stranded as the vehicle will not start at all.

I have a 2008 Dodge caravan with a lifetime powertrain warranty. I took the car in for service as the radiator hoses were leaking. The next time I drove at night, I saw that the lights would not say on. I took it into the dealer and was told that it is a $990 repair.

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee I have been experiencing problems with my truck stalling while on the road and problems with it turning on. At times I would not hear my fuel pump turn on and even when I would hear it run my truck would still fail to completely turn on. My vehicle has had this problem for a year or so. I had experienced this problem in the past with the stalling and upon taking it to the dealer ship I was told that they could not duplicate the problem and that my vehicle was fine. Several months later my vehicle continued to have the same issue but since the dealership informed me that this was normal I continued on. None the less a few days ago I experienced a problem at work where my truck did not turn on. Luckily after 4 hours of attempting to turn it on it finally did I drove it home the next day in the morning it did not start up again. I had to have it towed to the dealership they informed me that it was the TIPM and it was covered under the extended warranty that I had purchased but I would still have to pay $100 for the deductible for the warranty. I am beyond livid and upset with these new findings that this is a common and known issue. My wife and myself have matching 2011 jeep grand cherokee's and now I am just waiting for the same thing to happen to her! This is ridiculous!!! When will there be a recall!!!

Same problem with 2011 Jepp Grand Cherokee. Took 12 weeks to get vehicle back. I have extended warrenty for 7 yrs or 70,000. Jepp has 54,000 on it. I was charged $1651.01 for labor and parts. TIPM was $1066.82 which should have been under warrenty. I am looking into that now. People at Labelle Dodge treat us like pond scum. Any hep would be appreciated.

I have a 2011 Durango that will not start in the morning. I push the start button and it just turns over and over, I have had to resort to cycling it thru several times before actually holding the brake down and then pushing it to start and sometimes it works but its starting to get really annoying. My wife drives it most of the time and I cant have her stuck somewhere with my 2 kids stranded I cant have that. Someone please help I do not want to pay 1200 to get it fixed or put on waiting for the part to come in.

2009 Dodge Grand Caravan; out of 36 month warranty. Intermittent starting and stalling. Intermittent electric door locks and window problems. With no appointment, I took it to Huffines Dodge in Plano, TX and they knew what the problem was right away - the TIPM - it was in stock and they installed it same day. No charge and they paid for a rental car for me that day. Great service - I guess I got lucky.

I am having somewhat of the same problem with my 2011 Grand Cherokee. The dealership where I purchased it has been wonderful about the problems. The check engine light started to come on continuously. At one point, I thought that I needed a new battery. I bought the $250 battery and had it replaced. About 6 weeks ago the check engine light came on again. I brought it to the dealership and they said that the head gaskets needed to be replaced, which they were. 3 weeks later I was having the same problem, except when the jeep was idling, the car would start to shake. I brought it in and had the head gaskets replaced AGAIN. The dealership said that it was fine and safe to drive (I was going 400 miles away on a business trip.) Now I'm stuck in the middle of Texas with my jeep at another dealership trying to fix whatever problems it is having since it wasn't done the first time I brough it in. I have 53,000 miles on the jeep, but should be not having this many problems.

I have a 2011 Jeep GC and a 2012 Jeep GC the 2011 started having starting issues after 40k miles it was in and out of the Jeep dealer in central NJ 3 times before they could duplicate the problem a defective TIPM module. They told me it was going to be about $1400.00 to fix after contacting customer service they said they would pay for the part I would have to pay for labor $300+ . Replaced the TIPM and it starts but one of the horns stopped working. My 2012 started having the same problem soon after turning 40k miles. Took it to the dealer said they could not duplicate the problem after a couple of days sent me on my way. The 2012 is more intermittant then the 2011 it happens when ever it feels like it usually at the worst time. Took it back again to the dealer and they installed a relay inside the engine compartment hooked up to the TIPM, tie wrapped to the passenger side fender, when I asked about it they said it was Chrysler fix and that I was one of the test cars they trying it out on. The next day the car would not start. Instead of continually grinding the starter it would only turn over once. I got out of the car locked it and went back in and it started. Took it back to the dealer where it sat for 10 days the said the could not get it to fail but the checked all the connections and put blue paint on all the screws and connections around the TIPM. Went to the dealer last Saturday the 18th to pick up the car. Got into the car and it would not start, went back into the dealership asked if someone could look at it they said no that they only do oil changes on Saturday. Asked for a loaner said none was available went outside keep trying to start it eventually started and I drove it home cause I need to car for my business and it creates a hardship. Now its back at the dealer I am driving a loaner, have not heard from them. Just in a wait mode.

2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee - TICM issue BUT the engine would NOT stop running. At 6:00AM on one of the coldest mornings here in Michigan at -6 degrees F the engine is running, all the electronics including heat are out while all the idiot lights are flashing on the dash - including the "no bus" message. I now call this my Apollo 13 incident. The engine ran for 3 hours - even on the flat bed of the tow truck - until the dealer finally shut off the engine (I never asked how). Although my mileage was 35.5K so was fully covered - so lucky it appears based on the posts - it is the fact that the engine and all the damage that I am so so concerned about. NOT having the ability to shut off an engine is an incredible issue and thus warrants a serious safety concern.

Own a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee - had trouble starting a few times. It got cold - approx. 10 degrees - and she decided not to start. Towed it to the shop who said nothing was wrong. Went to pick it up and again, didn't start. Luckily this time the rig was at the shop. Said I'd have to take it to the dealer cause it's a faulty TIPM. Can't believe we are all having this same issue. Bummer cause I've had Jeeps all my life (33). Seems each one had a major issue. Not sure why I keep going back...this might be the straw.

Aaaaahh... First my 2011 jeep GC started by not starting on the first try but the second it would start, then cold weather came and it started to take up to 5 try's for it to start. Just recently I was driving and the car turned off right at a cross street. LUCKLY, the cars were still far!!! 2 nights ago we hear the fuel pump running even after the car was off, I was going to disconnect the battery but ended up not doing it. So yesterday I got in the car and the battery was completely dead! I was charging it throughout the day trying to turn it on and no luck, now when I put the car on ON, the check engine light starts flashing. So now today still no luck and it's getting pretty ridiculous!!!!!

Just bought a 2011 yesterday and having the cold start issue. Of course this went un noticed until I signed the paperwork because they had started and moved the car around that day until I took delivery. This problem needs to be fixed asap. I'm not going to have this thing die in the middle of LA traffic. I have seen some work arounds having to do with bypassing the relay on the fuel pump but this seems like a pretty crappy way to have to start a 2 year old car. Any advise would be appreciated but I will update this thread with my findings.

My 2011 v8 4x4 limitedJeep Grand Cherokee is having issues cranking. I took it to the dealership and was told that there were no issues with the vehicle other than the spark plugs needing to be replaced and both rear door locks needing to be replaced the vehicle was in great working condition. I replaced all spark plugs either (16 or 18) plugs and opted out of the rear door locks because of cost. My vehicle had some issues cranking occasionally however did not have any issues with the dealer repairman. Now my vehicle is having issues cranking pretty much every time I try to crank it especially when the weather is cooler and therefore the motor is as well.

2011 Durango was cranking and no start. After several tries would start and be fine for the rest of the day but first start everyday was an issue. No codes or faults registering in CPU. After about a month fuel pump would continue to run after shutting the vehicle off until battery would die. Then finally went to a crank, no start (fuel pump not coming on). Had friend in auto industry check as vehicle no longer under warranty and he found faulty TIPM module. Brought to dealer and had TIPM replaced and everything fine since.

Car can just "die" un-announced while driving. Then start up after a few minutes. Alternately, it just will not start period. Pop the "start button" out insert key for emergency... message says key is damaged, but it is perfect. This is a real safety issue.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Had a fuel pump run my battery completely dead about a year ago. Since the cold start, my Jeep has had some difficulty starting. Originally thought I had a bad battery. Jeep Dealership told me my battery was perfectly fine. They then tried to tell me I had a bad key fob, they loaded a new flash, paid my $50 and I was on my way. Until the next morning when I had the same problem. I turn the key and the engine turns and turns but will not start. Sounds like it is starved for fuel. Since I have learned to turn key to "Run" for 12 secs, then turn off, and Jeep will usually start up fine, although the past two days have been increasingly more difficult to start. I have been quoted for a new TIPM for about $1000 including labor. Jeep is 3 years old with about 48,000 miles. Very frustrated with both the TIPM and my local Jeep dealer (who still tells me it's not the TIPM and refuses to give me any information about TIPM problems other than price.) Plan on getting new TIPM or having mine rebuilt.

We recently had the same problem with our 2011 JGC. It attempts to turn over, sometimes cranking continuously until it times out without starting. This has been intermittent over several weeks, seeming to be more of a problem in colder weather. With time and frequency, we became more concerned that we would be stranded. After reading these posts, we knew it was a defective TIPM. We took it to a dealer and they indicated it is a fuel relay short internally in the TIPM. They suggested a wiring workaround, installing an external fuel pump relay, whereby they bypassed the defective TIPM. The cost for this was approximately $400. Otherwise, to replace the TIPM, they stated the cost would be approximately $1,400. We feel like we have a jerry-rigged solution at a fairly high cost. We would like to see Jeep do a recall and replace the defective TIPM.

I have a 2011Durango Citadel. My problems with the TIPM started at about 47k miles. He vehicle would not turn over, taking as many as 20 tries to get it to start. Eventually my fuel pump ran continuously til the battery was completely drained. Had to replace the battery for $350. Thought that might have fixed the problem until I go to drive it off the lot again and the same turnover problems occurred. Since then my fuel pump runs constantly and I now have to disconnect the negative battery cable under the passanger seat anytime I will be away from my vehicle for more than an hour. Been waiting 4 months for a replacement TIPM

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango. In November 2013, I began having issues with my vehicle not wanting to start. I would have to crank it several times before finally getting it to start. Finally one day, it did not start at all and I had to have a mechanic come out to my home and try to diagnose the problem. I was told I needed a new fuel pump and after $400 for the purchase of fuel pump and labor thought my vehicle was back to its normal self...WRONG! Once again, it would not start until I cranked several times. Finally took it to dealership and after their diagnosis, I was told that it was the TIPM. Apparantly, Chrysler knows of the issues that are occuring with the TIPMs because they came out with a repair kit for Dealerships. I ultimately ended up paying $562.00 for the repair kit and labor and now my vehicle is up and running. I think it is only fair that Chrysler reimburse customers for the expenses out of pocket to get this problem repaired especially since there are SOOOO many people with the same issue.

Have to check PCM module, front control module, TSB module, ASD relay, a wiring harness. But nothing is for sure and very costly. Where do I sign up for legal class action.

Twice in the past couple of weeks the engine (V-6) in myh 2012 Durango Crew has stopped running and the CEL popped up.
The first time I was cruising at 50 mph and the CEL came on and the RPM went to zero, but as I coasted to the side of the road the engine restarted by itself at about 40 mph, so it was off for less than 10-15 seconds.
The second time, I was backing out of a parking space. I turned everything off and restarted the engine and went on as if nothing had happened. In both instances the engine was at operating temperature.
It's going in next week and I suspect I got what the rest of you got, just at a lower level -- so far.
The last I heard there was a 800 unit backorder for this item.

My 2011 Town & Country has the same issues "Not Starting". First mechanic says bad fuel pump $500 New pump. Still doesnt work!
Second mechanic from the dealership works on the side says its the integrated module he says they are on backorder, but he has
one from another van. $600 installed and still doesn't work after
he programs to my car and I paid him. Now he tells me the module burnt the second fuel pump and he will install another fuel pump. That would've been 3 fuel pumps with labor and 2 modules. My good friend hooked up a relay to the module bypassing the fuel pump relay. The fuel pump relay in the module is bad which is causing these Chrysler mechanics ripping us off.

Since Chrysler knows the "TIPM" are bad why haven't they made it known with a recall?

My 2011 T&C also shut off while driving my 4 kids to school. Once it shuts off or stalls you loose the power steering.

Be careful without power steering its very hard to turn the wheel while coasting without power.

I've been having this same issue with my 2005 Durango for over 6 months now (one day it will start and the next day it wont) finally found a mechanic who figured out what the problem was and replaced my PMI (Part # 4692013-AD) in Dec and it went out again last month. I filed a complaint with Dodge and keep on getting the run around about when the part will be in (just called me and said possibly the end of March but 2 weeks ago it was going to be in mid March). My Durango was at a Dodge dealership 3 times and they could never figure out what was wrong with it just kept on telling me it was one thing, fix it and still didn't .

Purchased a 2011 jeep grand Cherokee limited 2 weeks ago with 25,500 miles. After the second day the vehicle would not start with the push button ignition. The engine would just crank and then shut off. After numerous tries the vehicle starts. After searching on line I see that literally hundreds of these problems are occurring in the 2001 and 2012 models. Almost all direct the problem to faulty TIPM. I am beside myself and cannot allow my wife to drive the vehicle in fear it will shut off while driving. I am not sure which direction to go in.

I bought a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland in May 2013 with 38,000 mi. all that summer I had issues with starting the truck. I brought it back to dealership mutliple times and they claim to have reset the computer to fix the issue. Yesterday my truck simply shut itself off while I was in mid-traffic. Thankfully I was able to safely coast to the side of the road. It took me about 20 minutes to get the truck started again. Today I am back at the dealership and they claim the TIPM went bad and they are replacing it. I have an extended warranty and have to pay the first $150.00, it's a $1,500 part. If Chrystler/Jeep is aware that this part is defective why are they NOT recalling our vehicles and replacing with no charge? Is this NOT a "safety" issue? What if I was in the middle of an intersection, I could have been killed if my truck decided to simply, shut itself off!

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee w the 5.7 HEMI. Started noticing a problem with start up a few months ago. I turn the car on and engine shuts off after a few seconds. It takes a few times of this to get the engine finally running. This happens periodically, but has increased in occurrence over the past few weeks. My Jeep has less than 20k miles on it so this should be covered under the manufacturers warranty. I brought it in to the dealership to have this looked at, but was given the run around about what was going on. Now I'm nervous about the engine turning off while I'm on the road and becoming stuck somewhere. If dealership won't be cooperative I will be trading it in for something else.

Welcome to the world of Chrysler Electronics designed by others. This is not just a Jeep problem, its corporate wide. Search any other model and as Chrysler changed to the TIPM electrical problems abound. 06 PT Cruiser shows the same symptoms as many others, no low beams, no brake lights, speedometer doesn't work, no third brake light. New owners, FIAT , doesn't care and dealers must have been told to tell complaining customer that they never heard there was a problem. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil....

I have a 2007 Dodge Caliber with less than 80,000 miles, bought brand new and I have had to replace the TIPM not once but three times. The factory TIPM that was in my vehicle that went bad first started at only 31,000 miles. I bought a NEW one from the dealership that was 900.00 and it lasted about 17,000 miles before it went bad. The last two times I was able to get over 30,000 miles on each of them before they went bad. I purchased them from a salvage yard. I am in the process of obtaining my FOURTH! Luckily I replaced them myself and didnt have to pay a mechanic to do so. If so many people are having this issue with the TIPM it should be covered as a RECALL.

Luckily I replaced them myself and didnt have to pay a mechanic to do so. If so many people are having this issue with the TIPM it should be covered as a RECALL.

I have a 09 Dodge Ram with 65,000 miles and the TIPM just went out, so the dealer says. It is going to cost me over $800 to repair it. Now I am told that it's not just the TIPM that is bad, but also the cluster. This is going to cost me another $400. It is just coincidental that this is happening to all these Dodge vechiles and they aren't willing to repair them. I think there is a bigger issue going on here!

This is the same problem with my 2006 Chrysler 300 2.7L V6 engine.
My car was cutting off and restarting on a regular basis while driving.
On February 28th around 1pm while I was driving northbound on Franklin Ave in Brooklyn, NY my car stalled at the intersection in heavy traffic with no engine light or any malfunctioning light warning. I had it towed to a mechanic who charged me to change the sparked plugs, a sensor, and an oil changed.
After driving the car for one day it stalled again at an intersection while
taking the children to school.
The mechanic towed me back to his shop and charged me again to install a new water pump. After driving the car for a day it stalled on me again at another intersection. This time I had it towed to Kings Chrysler in Brooklyn, NY.
They told me that the fuel pump my
mechanic installed was no good and that my car has two fuel pumps not one. They also said that I needed a new PCM, timing cover seal and a temperature sensor. They made these replacement, charged me
$2421.38, told me the car is fix and wouldn't stall anymore. I drove for a couple of days then it shuts down again while driving on Atlantic Ave. I had it towed back to Kings Chrysler, now they're telling me I need a WIN module. They are not getting it right. After reading similar problems on this blog it's probably my TIPM also.

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango. Months ago I suddenly had an issue where I would start my car and it would just crank and wouldn't turn over until about the third try. After a week and a half, the issue appeared to have resolved itself. However, weeks ago I found my car one day to be competely dead. No power at all. Thought it was a fluke and just jump started it and it drove fine. The next day the car was dead again. I replaced the battery thinking it was just the battery. Now just few weeks weeks later, my Durango is completely dead again.

Thank you for doing this! We a 2011 Durango and have been having this exact problem for over 5months with not starting, starting then shutting off, and now after turning off the motor, the fuel pump remains engaged and it is very audible and when under the car you can actually feel the vibration of the fuel moving. Ashleigh S., we were told that if the fuel stays engaged it will kill the battery, we were told to remove the M20 fuse and this did stop the fuel line. Unfortunately we have to do this every time we are not driving the vehicle. We found that it actually stayed engaged all night long, which is very scary and completely dangerous! Chrysler has a serious safety issue here and our local dealer where we purchased gave us the typical run around by trying to tell us it wasn't the TIPM and that we only needed the computers calibrated..... I'm suppose to take it in today and we did go to the dealership yesterday, but of course no one was there to help us.

I have a 2013 Grand Cherokee and the card stop running on the freeway. Dealer could find nothing wrong with it. No fault codes at all. When I confronted them on TIPM they say this almost never happens and I will have to drive the car until this happens again. I am opening a case Chrysler.

Not just a 2011 & newer issue-I have a 2005 Durango, it doesn't stall BUT about 2 weeks ago, it started to switch itself in & out of 4WD while being driven; all the 4WD indicators go on & off randomly, when the doors are unlocked or opened you can hear something engaging in & out under the truck. The truck doesn't need to be running to hear this. My mechanic & I did separate research on the issue; turns out it is an issue with the a/c & TIPM sensor getting shorted out etc etc. Found so many reports from other Ram & Durango owners & mechanics of 2004 on up complaining of same exact issue. I bring mine in next week to have the it checked out & confirm that this is the issue but I would bet money, based on the info we found, that the TIPM/a/c sensor is the issue. I don't plan on fixing if over $600, will be car shopping between now & then for a non American made vehicle!

I had the same issue. At first my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee would die when we were getting off the highway and turning right. After a few weeks of this happening, the car started turning off as I was pulling out of my driveway and then wouldn't start again. I brought it in several times, they replaced the O2 Sensor which did absolutely nothing, so I brought it back and mentioned that it could be the TIPM. They replaced it and it hasn't died in the last 2.5 weeks which is nice, however; Now my Fog lights flash when I turn my right turn signal on!?!

I bought my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee recently with almost 36,000 miles on it. After I put less than another 1000 miles on it, I have the same problem as many of you. Until, hopefully we can get Dodge help us out, because $1,400 is a lot of money, if your engine just keeps cranking over without starting, first I found that cycling the start button (don't put your foot on the brake) 3 or 6 times, then push the start button until reads run, put your foot on the brake, push the start button, as soon as it starts to crank, slip your foot off of the brake right away. That was working for awhile, now the fuel pump stays on even after turning off the engine. As Eric S. I found the fuel pump fuse and I pull it out, if the car will sit for more than a couple hours, or my battery will be completely dead.
So, to the lawyers here, if you read this, any idea what else we can do to get Dodge/GM, to acknowledge this common problem and take care of the TIPM issues? I love everything else about my Jeep, I hate this every day occurrence (frustration). Please tell us what to do now.

Same issue with my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7L. About a month ago, at around 47K miles, it tried to turn over but failed to start on several tries but eventually did start. This routine went on about three or four times a week until yesterday when the fuel pump failed to shut off with the ignition which killed the battery. Now the vehicle is being towed to the dealer to be "diagnosed". I'm sure it's this faulty TIPM and of course my Jeep is out of warranty too.

Took my 2011 jeep grand cherokee in due to a starting problems. Was told that the fix was really expensive but that there was a way to just order a few parts instead of replacing the whole piece with the issue. Cost several hundred dollars and may/may not have solved the problem long term. Have also had the car turn off many times while i am actually drivimg it, scary as beakes go soft and power steering goes out. This has happened since repair on the car starting issue. Told the dealer about the problem when in for starting problem and said they didnt know what would be causing that but that they likely wouldnt be able to replicate it.

I have a 2011 T&C Limited. Two days ago I had to have it towed home (the dealer was closed on Sunday) when my wife was out shopping and could not get it to start. I have been an ASE mechanic for many years. I tried testing relays and fuses to do with starting issues and everything checked good. Everything seems to turn on and power up except the engine would not crank. I tried push-button start, 2 different key fobs, and the factory remote start option, none of this worked. This was all over about a 2 hour period. The next morning I went back to do more troubleshooting and the van started first time with no problems. I have tried it several more times over time and it starts every time. It is going to the dealer in 2 days to get checked out. He says that they can tell what happened even if it is working now. It sounds the same as everybody else.

I have a 2011 Grand Cherokee with 56K on I have experienced similar to all of the above listed problems. The vehicle last week would try to turn over but it would not. This lasted for 5 days and when I took it to the dealer they told me that if they found no issues I would be charged for labor or looking at it (even though it is a certified vehicle). After a few days, last night when I came out of work the truck just decided it wanted to be completely dead. Roadside showed up and it took 25 minutes of jump hook up to get it turned over. Got it home and same thing this morning. Tested the battery and alternator and both were good. However when I turn it off I still hear the fuel pump going (and draining my battery). I know the problem as listed above but I refuse to pay for it. What to do??!!

I own a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and this issue JUST happened to me recently. I am at 41,000 miles and I bought this car 3.5 years ago brand new.

Last night around 9pm and twice today at 11am and 3pm, my car failed to start. It would struggle to turn over. The cranking sound, sounds horrible. I am scared and worried to continue driving my car! I am just so disappointed.

Luckily I am under the extended warranty (7 year/96,000 mile) so I'm glad that it won't be such a hit to fix it, but it sounds like more problems arise after the TIPM is replaced.

I am just so disappointed. What a shame Chrysler.

Same issue as most people. 2010 Jeep Grand Cherokee intermittently will start, problem started for a few months then started fine for the last 6 months and now the problem resurfaced. Haven't fixed it yet but going to eventually have to address this issue, but I have a false hope Chrysler will address this in a recall. Right now its difficult to repair because I doubt they can do much unless it is acting up when I bring it in.

Yes, and I got screwed. I am a disabled Veteran and a single parent with a disabled child. I received disability funds and paid 30k cash for my Jeep Grand Cherokee. I had the described problems. The dealer said it was a key fob problem. I was about to receive my 3rd key fob. The problem persisted, then problems with the airbag draining battery. The dealer told me to trade my car but they could only offer me a 2012 jeep compass. I didn't want to, but they said that these problems would persist and they were not covered by my extended warranty. They traded my car for what was supposed to be a 2012 compass. I found out today after reviewing the contract with the manager, the car is actually a 2011 compass. Dealer says there is nothing they can do.

Our 2011 Dodge Durango started having a starting issue at about 20,000 miles!!!! The dealership said it was due to dirty oil and that we needed an oil change. The oil had just been changed out less than 50 miles at the time. This issue has continued and has been intermittent over the last 2 years. Today our Dodge would not start until the 10th attempt. We now have 44,900 miles and no extended warranty.

I press the start button and it just runs, the only way to get it to stop is to pull it into gear. I took it to the dealership yesterday but they said they can't find anything wrong with it. Since there's no code they don't know where to start looking. But, reading all these stories I think they know. Not sure what to do to resolve this issue.

2012 Dodge Durango Citadel: Vehicle will start perfect most of the time but occasionally get into the cycle where it will continually try to start over and over. Once it stops trying to start you may get lucky and have it work correctly on the next attempt or it may take as many as 4-5 cycles for it to work correctly. It seems to be the "start" button versus the remote start on the key fob. This is ridiculous especially since it seemed to happen when the car went out of warranty. I love this vehicle in every way and was preparing to replace our BMW Suv with another one when the BMW was paid off.

Hello I have a Chrysler 300 2008,
I was involved in an accident on May 5th 2014. I was driving on the Florida Turnpike when my car shut off without warning. I have taken my car to the dealership ever since the accident.
1. the PCM was updated ( dealership said thats what caused my car to shut off) This was done May 7th, 2014
2. Two weeks later my car shut off again without a warning now the dealer ship said I needed a Wire Repair and a New Crankshaft Position Sensor. This was done May 30th, 2014
3. On June 17, 2014 I needed a new TIPM. As I was still having problems with my car.

Chrysler said that because I as not injured in my accident there was nothing they could do.
I have read multiple web pages with people also experiencing there car shutting off without a warning and let Chrysler know that. Still no importance was put into my accident.

I also have a 2011 GC, laredo X. I love the car but have had electrical issues from the beginning. The starter issues (as described above) have been going on for over a year. The problems have progressively gotten worse and I am too scared to actually drive the car. It's been at the dealership for over 2 weeks and I can't get an answer. I b ought the extended warranty so I have to pay $100 but is how many times do I need to go through this and pay $100 for the same problem. They don't believe me about the problems which is even more frustrating. Chrysler has a lawsuit coming if they don't get this straightened out.

I really hope Jeep can make this right because I love the car, just wish I didn't have to deal with these issues. I used to just be annoyed at them but now it's gotten to the point where I am actually too nervous to drive my own car. I will post again if I get any results.

I have the same problem. Started out with an issue starting my car, but I could start it with my remote start. I did that for a couple weeks, and then my battery was going dead. I then realized that after turning my car off that a sound was coming from under my car. It sounded like a soft motor or almost like air coming out of something. I initially thought it was just my car cooling off in the exhaust, but soon found that when I disconnect my battery terminal it went away. Clearly it was a electrical issue. I have read numorous times that it is the TIPM and I refuse to buy new battery until that is replaced or I go get a new vehicle. This is ridiculous, and I will not purchase another Jeep again.

I had the same issue. I bought my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherockee in 2012. About 2 months after the warranty has gone, the problem has started. The engine staring problem comes very irregulary. Last time it happened last Sathurday. I found out, when I have used the remote start, the engine started fine. As soon as I have pressed the brake pedal, the engine stopped immediately. After several times trying again and again, the problem seams to be gone. Yesterday and today absolutely no problems anmore. It's really hard to reproduce the problem.

Same issues here!! 2011 Jeep grand Cherokee Limited. It used to happen intermittently, and I thought that I just wasn't stepping on the break pedal enough to start properly. Until this morning, my car absolutely will not start!! I have had multiple issues with this car since we bought I in late 2010. The first issue began before my car was even a year old! Not to mention the alternator already died on us, and my daughter and I got stranded on the streets when it died at night!!! First time Jeep buyer, and never again! Coming from being an owner of both Japanese and German cars, there is a reason why they have higher reputations! I'm about to take it to a local shop tomorrow (on a tow) to see what the damage will be this time a around! This is extremely terrifying after reading all the posts. We often use this car with our young children in it, since it is the family car. I'm so worried that something will happen to it while we are driving. Chrysler Jeep Dodge needs to fix this and make good to the consumers who in good faith purchased their vehicles.

2 days ago I started having this same issue all of you described. Yesterday the car after an hour of trying the car just wouldnt start. I have a 2011 Durango Citadel model with the 5.7L engine. I had to get it towed to the dealership. I told them the car cranks like it wants to start but wont kick over. Then when it does it just dies out. I was told on Monday they might get to my car but it is looking like they will look at it tomorrow. I bought this car only 17 months ago. I should not have a major issue like this. Fingers crossed that its not the issue im reading.

I, too, have experienced the same with my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I purchased the vehicle used from a Jeep dealership in November 2013. It currently has around 40K miles. I have tried starting it with no luck, and it gets stuck trying to start until it times out. It can take several times to get it going. I have also experienced stalling, almost as if the RPMs are too low, while stopped in traffic. Thankfully I take the train to work, because I wouldn't be able to deal with this on a daily basis. However, I have thought twice about driving longer distances because I don't know what it might do.

I am having the same issue with my 2011 Dodge Durango Citadel, and hey guess what it is the TIPM is bad! $1300 and it will fixed maybe. I have put $2000 into this car in the last 3 months. The car has 41k miles on it and it has been to the shop 3 times since I bought it 7 months ago. Chrysler should step up to the plate and acknowledge the problem, or stop building crap cars!

I have a 2012 Dodge Durango Crew and the TIPM went out- I had to have my vehicle towed to the dealership because it wouldn't start at all. I have 41,000 miles on it (just out of Chrysler's standard 36K mile warranty) and my 100K mile Power Train warranty does not cover it. The dealership was charging me $1600 to fix the problem. I called Chrysler, they called the Dodge dealership that has my vehicle. They are honoring it as under an extended warranty, however, I still have to pay a $500 "deductible" to have it fixed. Yesterday I was told the part was backordered & today, magically my vehicle is fixed!

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango Citadel with 54000 miles. Like so many others in this thread, my problem started (or not as the case may be), with me pressing the start button one morning, the engine turning over but would not start. I attempted this a couple of times and then it finally started. I took the car to my local Good Year to have the inspection completed and at the same time, asked them to do a once over and check the battery, which they did and said it all looked to be fine. The car behaved fine all day until the next morning, when the same thing happened, however this time it would not start at all and then engine light flashed on. I ensured everything was off and per the vehicle handbook, called my local dealership. The dealership said it needed to be brought in to be diagnosed..

The vehicle had to be transported to Dodge, it should have been on a Friday, but the dealership said they were too busy to receive it, so I had to wait until Monday morning to have it delivered to them. Tuesday passed, no news.... Wednesday arrived and the dealership said they had no idea as to a diagnosis, so I called Dodge/Chrysler. I explained that the dealership had referred the case to their STAR dept and that they not been able to provide any assistance or establish what the problem could be. Victoria at Dodge/Chrysler customer service advised that she would refer the problem to case management and that someone would call back the next day. The whole situation being bad enough was exacerbated by the fact that the local dealership does not provide courtesy vehicles to their customers - at all.. regardless of circumstance... not very courteous! Thursday came and went - no news... Friday arrived and up until the time that I called Dodge/Chrysler Corporate at lunch time I had not heard anything about the status of my car. A supervisor called the dealership and surprise, surprise, still no diagnosis.. I intimated that I had read a long list of issues pertaining to the TIPM sensor and had mentioned this to the dealership, but nothing.. After complaining about the loss of a vehicle for a week and that it was affecting my business and personal life, the supervisor authorized the rental of a car for 5 days, while they continued to work on diagnosing the problem... I am unsure at what point they will figure out what the problem is and then how much it will cost me... Either way, I guess I should be grateful that the problem occurred while the car was in the driveway and not while I was driving my family along the freeway - who knows what tragedy could have occurred.

So this is my story so far, I will update you as the situation unfolds.. the fact that the dealership claims to be unable to determine what the problem is, frankly astounds me given how I was able to 'google' it and figure it out in 5 mins..

We began having this same problem late last year 2013. It would take us a couple of attempts before the car started running. Flash forward to today, we took the car in to have it diagnosed, and they tell us we need a TIPM replacement @ $1600. We are at 56k miles...what a let down.

The one strange thing that has been working for us in the meantime is to remotely start our car with the key fob. The push button is useless, but for some reason, the key fob has worked for us over the past couple of days...

Same problem here with 2011 Cherokee Jeep. Funny noise under car after turning off. Next morning car cranked but after many failed attempts did start.
Problem sporadic now for over a week. Just called Chrysler Jeep in Overland Park kansas and service tech acted like he couldn't hear me. Transferred me to parts and told part cost over 800.00 dollars. This is my third but last Chrysler
Product. Thanks for the shitty service and committment to your customers.

2011 Dodge Durango. I first started having problems twice last week. Tried to start the truck and it would not start the first try it kind of sound like the starter going out. Then 3 days ago I was driving and truck shut off while driving on a busy road. Called the dealer and was told that I could not get my vehicle checked untill a week from today. Now I will have to pay to get it towed to the dealer next week because it wont start. And when I do get it started it just shuts off. I guess I will know next week if it is the tipm that is bad. Reading all the other compliants I am pretty sure it is the tipm thats bad.

My 2011 Dodge Durango wouldn't start and I knew that something was draining my battery. I had to get a jump start every morning. Come to find out by my local Dodge dealer that The Totally Integrated Module (TIPM) went out. I looked it up and it has been numerous complaints about it and Chrysler is ignoring it. I need to know what are my legal rights?

I'm having the same issue. I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee we bought brand new, haven't had any problems until around May this started, the first time was when my 18 month old was stung by a bee for the first and was having an allergic reaction, car wouldn't start so we had to call 911, it happened multiple times again so I took it to the dealer, with around 35,000 miles on it and they found nothing, replaced my key fob battires and a few other things. Happened multiple times again, went back, nothing wrong, finally it starting making the cranking noise recently so we went back again! Called Chrysler, started a case and threatend with getting a lawyer involved and calling the better business buero. Today, 8/6/14, service dept says there replacing my starter and external fuel pump relay, both of which I'm afraid won't fix the issue. I have small children I'm always on the go with, I'm tired of this happening and disgusted that Chrysler isn't doing more about this. Chrysler told me today that there sending my case through to there buy back department to review it since I've been having so many issues. We'll see!! It'll probably be weeks before I hear anything. If Chrysler turns me away I will be getting my own lawyer and going after them, and even if the dealer won't help, they'll all be sorry!

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango and i have been having problems with the truck starting. I took it to the local Dodge dealer today and i just explained to the service rep what was going on and he immediately knew what the problem was without doing a diagnosis. To get repairs done he said it would run me about $1000 and they would have to keep the vehicle overnight. I google the TIPM and thats when I discovered it is an faulty problem with Chrysler from the responses seen on the web.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee- 66,400 miles. Stalling after backing out of parking lot twice this weekend along with noticing a strange noise occurring 8 seconds after turning ignition off. Sounds like "VOOOP, VOOOP", coming from behind fuse box or in the right side of engine area. Sounds electrical if anything, you have to listen for it. Also at 30 mph, going up incline I have to really step on the gas because of a delay and than it really zooms. I feel like the computer module is out of wrack and I'm afraid this is only the beginning of something quite dangerous. Not to mention I loss my brakes this winter while driving, opened a case with Chrysler before the recall hit (brake booster failure). Same type of safety issue, it finally became a recall due to the amount of people submitting cases to Chrysler and the NHTSA. So everyone needs to follow suit. It worked for the brake failure recall! So hopefully the TIPM will too.

I recently purchased a 2011 jeep grand cherokee. After owning it for less then a year about 2 months ago it started acting up and would not start when it was a cold start. But then it would turn over after the second or third failed attempt. One week ago it started to not want to start after about 5 min of trying. Then last Thursday it DIED ON ME WHILE I WAS IN TRAFFIC ON THE FREEWAY. I almost was hit and being stuck on a freeway is enough emotional stress on its own. After 10 to 15 min of being in the middle of the road it turned on (I was praying so that was probably what did it) I took it to jeep immediately after and they said they have never heard of anything like that happening and they couldn't look at it for at least 2 weeks and I would have to drop it off that day. Now are you kidding me. I'm a college student who doesn't have the time or money to deal with this. I took it to our family friend who's a mechanic and he thinks it is the tipm. Thanks jeep!!!!

2011 Dodge Durango Crew 5.7L V8 starting problems probably due to TIPM issue. Vehicle is at the dealership now and waiting for full diagnosis, but it appears to be the same issues that other owners are having at around 40-50k miles. I would like to have my problem logged to help other owners and get a recall on an item that is so expensive and not considered Powertrain for the warranty.

I own a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and just started experiencing the starter problems. I did receive the "Brake Recall" notice from the Dodge Dealership that I purchased my vehicle and called to schedule an appointment to get it done, the service guys spoke to me as if they didn't know what the starter problem was and when I spoke to them about the TIPM issues that I found online they said they didn't know what I was talking about. They also suggested that I get a tune up with them and change my brakes and struts, etc, to make the starter issue go away until my "Brake Recall" part comes in. Although the "Brake Recall" is free and I already know it has to do with the TIP Module, he was trying to suggest I perform a diagnostic for $150 for them to come back and tell me that it would cost me $1300 to fix whatever "starter issue" I was having while I wait for the "Brake Recall" part. I believe they wanted to stall the time of how long it would take to fix the TIP module and explained to me that there were other issues wrong with my car. I serviced my car somewhere else and they explained to me the same thing...."The integrated power module needs to be replaced."

I own a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L V8 with about 80K miles. I started having all the same issues a few weeks ago. I thought it had something to with sensor failing or needing to be replaced. I cleaned the Mass Air Flow Sensor and the Throttle Body and replaced the battery during that time. The problems persisted and as of yesterday, 8/12/2014 my Jeep completely died on me and I am being quoted $1370 for diagnostic and TIPM replacement at a local car repair shop in Baltimore.

I own a 2011 Citadel Durango AWD with Hemi motor it just hit 60K and the vehicle was having a hard time starting up. It got to the point that one night when I called in to work I was stuck in my driveway for 30 mins trying to start my car. The Vehicle would just cycle into the on position and the starter motor would crank and crank, but not start. I drove it to the dealer and they were aware of the problem, but told me my vehicle was out of warranty. They stated that they would try to make sure my car was flashed with the latest software. They determine I had the latest software and then moved on to the fuel pump relay. I was told the relay on the TIPM was bad and that Chrysler had recommended a fix of a relay bypass and I was told it would be an $800 repair bill. I told the girl at Crowley Dodge that it was very expensive and she immediately dropped the price to $600 dollars out the door??? Wow $200 dollars off without batting an eyelash? I was then told it would take 3 to 4 days to get the part and have it installed. This is madness to have a known issue not recalled and repaired by the manufacturer.

I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 42,000 miles on it. I'm having the same problems starting my vehicle, sometimes it takes 3 to 4 times for it to turn on. I've also been driving my vehicle and had it shut off on the road twice, luckily I was able to pull off to the shoulder and I was not on the freeway. I have an 18 month old baby and I cannot risk taking her out in this unsafe vehicle. I found a place online that will repair my TIPM but I have to pull it out and send it to them, it cost $269 +$15 shipping. It's called ARspeedometer, I will let you know in a few days if it worked (I do not work for them). If this doesn't work this Jeep is gone, No more Mopar for me!

Same issues with my 2008 Wrangler. It has 40,000 miles. The dealer isn't sure it's the TIPM, but from what i am reading here, it must be. New battery last fall, would not start today, but gauge lights came on. After a few tries, then letting it sit an hour, it started ok. But the fan blower power went down, and after shutting it off, there was that weird fan sound that has been mentioned here. Managed to drive it to the dealer, and rent a car since they didn't know when they could get to it. Was told the part is on "major" backorder at Chrysler, and will cost me about $850 for the part itself.

Same problem. Have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with about 42000 miles on it. Was having trouble starting it. I was late to work on multiple occasions and stranded a few times as well because the jeep would not start. Just took my Jeep to the dealer and they said it is the TIPM which I figured from looking it up online. He quoted me close to $1500 and told me it could be weeks to months before they get the part because they are on back order. So now I am without a vehicle and will be forced to pay out of pocket for a rental car because of this defective part.

I have a grand cherokee laredo 2011 4x4 I bought it used about 47,000 miles trip A. but in excellent shape.
I have had this issue since beginning I was deployed with the troops so I could not return the car I had to leave it for more than 6 months parked.
the problem starts when you start it up it is regular start then in few seconds later as you drive you will notice only RED light on and cruise control does not work then you have to stop and turn it off then on again then it might go away.
the other problem the transmission gauge does not relay so it is still frozen when that happens.
don't know what to do thinking contacting an attorney i don't know if it is too late to do so or not.

My 2012 Dodge Durango was working fine until about a month ago when it wouldn't start. It would crank and crank but not turn over. Eventually it would start, but it shut off while I was driving. We went to the dealership and they thought it was the key fob and then the fuel pump. It is interesting that they never thought to look into the TIPM when it is a national problem. I finally went to another place and they said it would cost $1000. I have not fixed it yet, but it seems that Chrysler should recall this TIPM and fix it.

I bought a 2011 Dodge Durango. The first issue I had was with the left blinker and then the right head light. I thought this was just a simple change out the bulbs problem. Then at 33000 miles I got the lighting bolt signal on the dash, and the vehicle had problems starting. I took it in for service and was told they couldnt recreate the problem so I was out of luck. Then at 35000 miles it happened again, plus my power door locks went out of wack and I couldn't lock or unlock any of my doors. They fixed the doors but not the cranking problem. Now I'm upset because I'm at 50000 miles and the vehicle has problems starting and the fuel pump keeps running after the vehicle is shut down. I have to pull the fuse out to keep from draining my battery. Dodge says the parts are on back order then they never return my call. Great job on this one Dodge.

Purchased a 2012 dodge durango rt. The original rt went into the shop several times with a check engine light within days after purchase. The dealer determined it was something to do with the computer and replaced the car with a new one and had to change the vin numbers on all my new car paperwork. This one has been in the shop several times for the check engine light and about a month ago would not start on me. First time dealer said they couldnt find anything wrong with it. Second time it didnt start they said it was the tipm and fuel pump wasnt shutting off. They replaced fuel pump and tipm. Now car will only turn on whenever it feels like. I try to start it and it takes several tries for the vehicle to actually start. Taking to the dealer again i only have about 4000 miles before my warranty is over. And i am afraid to stay with this car. I have 2 babies under 3 and i am scared to go anywhere with them because i can get stranded.

Wow, unreal. Has anyone who's outside of their warranty had any luck having the TIPM module replaced without having to pay the $1200+?

I have a 2011 jeep grand Cherokee limited with approximately 32K miles. I began seeing the issue several weeks ago where the engine would crank but wouldn't start (using push button starter). Eventually it would start. Over the last several weeks the problem has intermittently reappeared but seems to be getting worse as it's taking longer to start. I've noticed that if I use the key instead of the push button it'll start right away. Based on the discussion above I have little confidence this work around will last.

Can I assume at this point that I'm going to have to pay for a new TIPM module which will most likely be defective as well?

I own a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland with just over 50,000 miles. Bought it new. A couple of months ago I started experiencing start up problems which progressively got worse. If the car started, it sometimes stalled out after traveling just a few feet. It became totally unreliable as a primary vehicle. This past Saturday I dropped it off at a local Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep dealer for service. Several hours later the service department called and said they were successful in replicating the problem and that it is a bad fuel pump. Said it would cost $1,300 to repair. After I gave them the go ahead to make the repair I started an online inquiry into my problem and was linked to this site from an Edmunds.com forum on Grand Cherokee start, stall idle problems. This was the first time that I discovered the problems with the TIPM. I received a call yesterday to say the jeep was ready to be picked up. It turned out not to be a problem with the fuel pump, they replaced the TIPM and cleaned the fuel injectors and was charged a total of $1,233.42. I discussed with the service rep what I had discovered online and suggested that since it is such a large issue with the 2011 and 2012 JGCs that this should be handled under either a warranty or recall. He simply replied that he is just a service rep and cannot make decisions like that and that the Service Manager already went home for the day. I have only driven the vehicle twice since last evening and have experienced no problems. However, I have lost confidence in the vehicle and with Chrysler, Dodge , Jeep with how they are handling this situation. What will it take for them to recognize that this is a serious design/production problem that is costing the consumer quite a bit of money? An injury? Death? Class Action Lawsuit? I would like to be reimbursed.

I bought my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee, brand new... literally 0 miles on it. Beginning at just shy of 36,000 miles it began to intermittently have cranking and starting issues. Every time I would take it to the service center at the dealership, they could never get the problem to "replicate." After Several diagnostic tests costing $104.86 Each, they found nothing. When the vehicle reached 38,902 miles, and after the problem became more recurrent the dealership had me to replace my Key FOB battery and update the software in my PCM & WCM. ($170.00) The problem didn't subside, and I was left to deal with the problem which occurred at most inopportune times, but only intermittently... Until yesterday. After approximately 10+ attempts to get the jeep to crank and start, I took to Youtube (http://youtu.be/27XKm0fAiWI) where I found that I was not alone. I took my jeep into my local Tampa, FL. dealer today fully expecting to get the run-around, and for the first time they didn't disappoint... just as suspected they passed the buck. They charged me another $104.86 for a "diagnostic test" (which I already had informed them of what they'd find)! They then quickly handed me a repair quote of $1,300+ tax. I called Chrysler's Customer Assistance center (1-800-992-1997) and after being hung up on once, I spoke with a representative who basically after a 30 minute conversation of explaining my situation stated that if I would have caught the undiagnosed issue at 36,000 miles and while it was under warranty, it'd would have been covered. So essentially all that could be done was for me to leave my jeep with them for who knows how long and pay the assessed fee. She then added that I could file a complaint with the N.H.T.S.A (1-888-327-4236) to which I did. The dealership whom by at this time no longer had it's courtesy shuttle running, did not offer a complimentary car to take, but rather the name of a rental car company that charged a rate of $35/day.I am absolutely 110% turned off by this car company as a whole!

2011 Grand Cherokee. Bought new. Same problems as others. Replaced battery first time it died. Since then the new battery has gone flat two more times. Had to add a switch to turn off fuel pump when not driving. Fuel pump runs constantly if I don't turn it off and drains the battery. I am away from home and will have to return early because I am afraid the car might die at any time. First thing on my list is to get rid of this undependable car. Last Jeep for me!!!

About a month ago, my jeep had problems starting. When pushing the start button, it would just turn over and over but fail to fire up. Shut it off, wait, restart the process is the only way to finally get it to start. The problem now has progressed to almost every time and 5-6 x to finally start. I know this site wants me to log each incident separately, but I'd be doing that 5x a day...ugh! Not looking forward to a $1200+ repair for a known issue! May be my last Jeep if they don't fix it! It's the TIPM

Tuesday this week I bought a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I should have googled it first. I was super excited it drives great. By Thursday I was stranded, crank no start. The dealership is paying to replace the TIPM. Thank goodness it happened now. And not when I was on the road for work. I sure hope this is the last problem I will have for a long time. It doesn't make sense to me that they don't Recall it with how dangerous this issue is.

2011 Dodge Caravan Crew - Dealership had to replace fuel pump 3 times before they realized it wasn't the fuel pump, it was the TIPM. The part is on backorder (really Chrysler; this doesn't speak volumes to you) and I may not get my van back for 30 or more days. I think that if Chrysler doesn't want to correct THEIR problem, they should be stuck with the car rental tabs for every one of their customers they are inconveniencing. Maybe that would make them listen. I will NEVER do business with the Chrysler company again.

2006 Grand Cherokee Laredo, 127K miles, car is under extended service agreement from SureSale, purchased at Rockland Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge. Right front headlight and directional lights do not work. Was just told I need a new TIPM, which of course is not covered under SureSale policy. Dealer acted as if they had never heard of this issue before. New TIPM ordered 9/2/14....by the accounts above I guess I should be happy to only be charged almost $600 for parts and installation. Although, I haven't had it installed yet......just ordered new TIPM today.......

2011 Durango Express: having a whistle noise coming from engine bay and took it to the dealer where they replaced the starter and alternator on May 2014. Now having issues where the engine would crank but not start. Thought it was a battery problem so I bought a new battery ($170). Replaced battery and all started ok. Went back out sometime later and back to cranking but not starting. Doing some research and I found this website.

2011 Dudge Durango - Just had to replace the TIPM Module. Told dealer previously about the problem and they said they updated codes and it was fine. I purchased the vehicle brand new at 54k miles I was not planning on spending over 2k to have this fixed. Century Dodge of Mt. Airy MD said sorry not under warranty. I will never purchase another Chrysler product again.

Purchased a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 47000. Now at 53,000 miles and having all of the starting problems people are talking about. I took it to a mechanic who said that he doesn't know what is wrong with the vehicle and suggested I take it to the dealer. I took the car to the dealer yesterday morning. I called 6 hours later and they said they haven't figured out what is wrong with it. Now into day 2 and they still haven't figured it out. I am guessing that it is gonna be the TIPM.

2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo started having this problem a couple months ago. Very sporadic. Now it happens every time I try to start the thing. Very frustrated and Jeep has been giving me the same runaround as everyone else. I did find 2 fixes that people say work. The first is a bypass of the fuel relay that a mechanic can do for around $300. Look at post #27 http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f309/2011-grand-cherokee-starting-problem-1436080/index2.html

The next is an Edmunds thread. There was a suggestion about a shop in Tulsa Oklahoma http://www.arspeedometer.com that could fix the TIPM.

2011 Dodge Durango. Intermittent problem starting since shortly after new. Back to dealer 3-4 times they said it was in FOBs and even replaced those. Problem finally got diagnosed by another dealer they said there is a case number for a relay to bypass the TPIM. The cost was $190 We have had no problems since. I am drafting a letter to Chrysler customer service to ask for reimbursement. I have also filed a case with the NTHSA.

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango, I had the issues with Starting the Truck. I took it to dealership, and they told me that it was the Fuel Relay's that needs to be fixed. I got them fixed and I am still having the same problems. I took to a different place and they told me that it was TPIM right off the back. When I took this to the dealership they act like they didn't know what it was but put in a rental car quick. Now they are trying to make me pay for the fuel relay again and a fee to look at the TPIM again.. Someone Help me !!!!

Update:
Question: Are most of you starting your car the old fashioned way by putting the key and turning the ignition, or using the push button start? For those of you who are experiencing issues with starting the engine with the push button start, check to see if the battery in your remote/key fob needs replacing. This could explain why so many people are experiencing issues around 40,000 miles- which is around the time the battery should be replaced. The weak key battery could be the reason why so many engines have failed to start. Anyway, I am relieved to report that my car is back to normal.

2011 jeep Grand Cherokee - something (a fan ?) is running for hours after the car is turned off. This follows the battery dying and being replaced four days ago. The sound is coming from the driver side of car near the back wheel. After reading all these posts about the TIPM it's hard not to feel discouraged and worried about our safety.

2011 Durango with the TIPM issue. Chrysler Dodge basically said I'm SOL and so did the local Dealership Mac Haik. Parts on back order and will cost $1200. No help from either parties. How many customers have to be in accidents be for they take action? I get a recall for a vanity light wire that may short after a headliner repairs....really, what about the fact that my Durango may shut down without notice, loss all power and possibly crash, possibly injuring my family or some one else? I left Chevrolet for defects and poor customer relations and now I will leave Chrysler.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee WK2 - $45K. I just bought the Jeep CPO at a dealer and luckily bought the maximum care warranty. Just yesterday (a month after buying it) the engine would engage and the ignition would just keep trying to turn on and on. I had to release my foot off the brake pedal and cycle my car from ACC to off and try and restart it to fix the issue for the time being. I haven't made a complaint to Jeep yet but I guess I'll do so tomorrow to get in line for a part. At worst I am out $100 for the warranty deductible.

I had the experience with a push button start and it was not a battery in the key fob issue. I had just replaced that battery a week prior to my incident as the EVIC messaged me noting the FOB battery needed to be changed. I did thus not part of the issue.

2011 Dodge Durango - At 40,000 or so miles the car was put in the shop to replace the head. This work was done and lasted about 12,000 miles. Car goes back in the shop for the same issue but this time I find out that its a factory flaw in the head unit and Dodge designed a new head unit to replace the original. Funny this wasn't mentioned on the first visit. I am now at 69,000 miles and TIPM is going out. Sometimes it takes 15 times to start. There was a time I really liked Dodge products, but this will be my last one. I have nothing good to say about Dodge. My plan is to have the by-pass installed and trade. Thanks Dodge! You've been cut from my family.

Same problem here as well with a Dodge Durango 2011, 45,000 miles; Initial diagnosed as faulty Starter which was replaced. Now the problem still exists. It takes several cranks to get the vehicle running. Without a fault indicator coming on, I am curious to know how the dealership can determine that it is the TIPM which is faulty.

Does not seem to be any particular catalyst that sets the situation off but after reading this I am becoming a bit more concerned. Have service appointment scheduled next week but now that I know this is such a problem I will be sure to let them know I am aware of it. Luckily my dealership has been pretty good so far but I only have about 5000 miles left on the warranty so hopefully it is resolved quickly.

Yes this just happened to me! 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. This happen on the Rubicon Trail 9/16/2014. I was climbing up a hill on solid granite slab when the check engine light came on and the engine went into a severe misfire, lost most all my power and almost lost the jeep with both my son and my wife in the jeep. I took use 2.5 hours to get the jeep off the trail with the help of another jeep and another 2.0 hours to get it down to hwy 50 and towed it home. Took it to the dealer, the TIPN is not covered it's costing 1400.00 to fix it! How can this not be covered under the Fed 8/80 warranty and how can Jeep let this happen! I'm a Search & Rescue responder and use my jeep in the back country all the time, this type of failure is going to kill someone soon! and it almost took my family out already!

Experiencing this issue with my Dodge Durango 2011. Seems like it has a hard time turning over. When I hit the auto start button to shut the truck off...it keeps trying to start. Very frustrated as I had the truck in the shop Oct. 2013 and they sold me a new key FOB. It only happened again a few times after that. Now it is doing it again and they are telling me it is needing a new fuel pump overlay harness. Mechanic told me it has been a problem lately and no recall issued yet.

I have a 2012 Laredo and am also having the same issue. The push button start hasn't been giving us issues recently, and has gotten worse the last few days. It tries to turn over but doesn't. You let go, it disengages, and you try again. Only 45K and seems like this is very common! Not to mention the 3 recalls we've received within the last 3 months. We took it to the dealer TODAY only to be told it will not be seen for 5 days because they are backed up, despite it being under the powertrain warranty. Thankfully we have a rental agreement, but it expires in 2 weeks. I hope they fix this issue SOON! Code P0306 is the code which came up when the jeep was diagnosed by our own mechanic. Let's see what they say!!!

I'm was trying to trade my Durango before it got worse, but I didn't make it. Now it is stuck in my driveway, YAY!! Going to raise as much hell as possible and see what happens.

I purchased a 2011 Durango Crew (5.7L RWD - 31,600 miles) not even a month ago and have been having issues with it starting. It will turn over and over, but won't start. Once it does get started, it will stall out before I can get it moving. Sometimes it takes several attempts to start, but it hasn't left me stranded yet (knock on wood).

With the complaints that are out there on this issue, it seems as though I am not alone.

Good news! I just read that Chrysler FINALLY listened to the complaints and has issued a recall on the fuel pump relay that's inside the TIPM. Per carcomplaints.com, "the recall should start around October, 24th 2014. Owners of the 2011 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee can call Chrysler at 800-853-1403 and reference recall number P54."

2008 Chrysler Town & Country - periodic TIPM issues include: while driving or in park with engine turned off - lights flashing, wipers and wiper fluid, doors locking and inability to regain access with key fob (had to call locksmith to pop it), and horn honking.

Hi! As we are speaking I am having the same problem with my Dodge Durango. I have an extended warranty and they stated that they don't cover the part. I could not understand this at all. The dealership stated it was a part inside the fuel pump. The policy stated that they would cover the fuel pump but not that part TIPM. I'm so heated right now!!!! The Dodge dealership stated that the part cost $860.00 not including LABOR.. Highly pissed customer. I will never purchase another Dodge as long as I live.

Purchased a 2013 Dodge Durango 11 months ago. Having all the same problems as everyone, not starting or starting and stalling out. Dodge is impossible to get on the phone and the dealership insisted that I am the problem and the vehicle is operating as it should. This is crazy how the regulators of automotive safety allow this issues to be ignored and brushed off so the dealerships get their bonuses and the manufacturer can pay themselves on the back thinking they make quality vehicles

2011 Jeep grand cherokee TIPM module, car cranks 10 - 15 times ten may start only to stall on major roads. Fuel pump runs when car is turned off. Of course out of warranty, but this part wasn't included in warranty. . Vehicle is unsafe. Awaiting recall before there a tragic accident!

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.7L engine. I have been having problems with this same type of thing for the last 2 years. At first I would get a message saying "Key Not Detected". Replaced the key fob and all was well for a while. Now it won't start unless you use the remote start to crank it over. It rarely starts with the push button even if it's been driven and then shut off for even a few minutes. And about half the time when it does start it acts like it's trying to quit. I've had it to the dealership with this problem and they're just playing dumb. I had thought about buying a new Wrangler in a few months, but don't worry Chrysler. After seeing this thread, you won't be seeing me darken your door again.

I just experienced this issue with my 2012 Durango. My car would try to crank but acted like if it was out of gas. After trying many times and letting it sit a few minutes, it finally started. The dealer just told me they are making some modification to the car called a Fuel Overlay Wiring. I told them it sounds like a defect. They said there are no recalls and that I had to pay $421. I have a Durango and a Ram. If Chrysler is not standing behind a serious issue like this, I will never own a Chrysler vehicle again!

Purchased a 2011 Jeep just 6 months ago. Very excited because as a grad student, I thought it would be awhile before I could afford a vehicle like this. Got up for work, would crank but wouldn't start. Had to be be towed to dealership!!!!! Chrysler says not included in warranty! The dealer told me, it was the TIPM, over $1000 to replace. The service manager tells me that there is a recall in the makes, could be released anyday. If that's the case, why does Chrysler pretend not to know anything about this???

My 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland 5.7L (49k miles) has not started multiple times. Other symptoms include intermittent rough idle after starting, sputtering/missing when accelerating and uphill, and intermittent failing to shift at high RPM. Dealer proposing to install starter/fuel module relay which Chrysler has made due to "amount of people with this problem" but quoting me $410 for the repair. No definitive diagnosis that this will fix all the symptoms. Also was advised to NOT drive the car until problem is fixed as it can stall/turn off at anytime. THIS IS A VERY DANGEROUS AND POTENTIALLY LIFE THREATENING ISSUE!!! video at http://youtu.be/_M90C80eLJM

iThe TIPM is responsible for controlling and distributing power to all of the electrical functions of the vehicle, including safety and ignition systems. The lawsuit claims Chrysler has long been aware of the TIPM problem, but refuses to publicly acknowledge it.
My 2012 Dodge Durango .... had no warning lights or any type of signal that say HEY something is wrong. I was driving down the interstate cruise control on 75 .... the Dodge Durango stalls out, loses all power, shuts off and has not started back since. The dealership claims it is a TIPM total integrated
power control module .... with everything that the TIPM controls and all of the complaints... WHY?????? HAS THAT PROBLEM NOT BEEN RECALLED IT IS BEYOND THE FACT THAT IS COST $1200 .... MY KIDS RIDE IN THIS THING GET IT FIXED BEFORE YOU KILL MY FAMILY OR SOMEONE ELSE'S

STOP BEING CHEAP BEFORE YOU KILL SOMEONE

A defective TIPM can sometimes make it impossible to start your car. In addition, it can cause any of the following:
◦The fuel pump not turning off

I just received the call from the service department. My 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan Crew with 65,248 miles which I have owned for three months purchased from a certified dealership has a bad TIPM in it. Like a lot of people on here, it started with hard to start then failing to start the first, second; and finally the third time it would, then it would start and die suddenly then three or four times it would finally stay started. Most recently I would get it started and drive it around then come home and shut the car off and the fuel pump would run continually. Had to disconnect the battery so it didn't drain overnight. Took it to Dodge and they finally called and said you have a bad TIPM, cost is $948.96 plus tax to fix. No surprise really. Called Chrysler and lodged a formal complaint and they said at this time the TIPM has no recall but if one does become available in the future you can fill out the necessary paperwork for a possible refund, and oh by the way there is a new notification for my vehicle called X-56, it extends the warranty because the left cylinder head may become misaligned and not function properly. So this is my story so far....Dodge never again.

Same issue here. 2011 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo. Cranks but won't start until a lot of tries. Stalled on me for the first time two weeks ago while driving down a neighborhood street. Luckily I had time to turn on my flashers and pull over. Battery went fully dead last night after a whole day of no problems with starting. Replaced battery for $200 and still having the same fuel pump relay problem... Frustrating!!!!!! I contacted Chrysler who says the recall for this issue is pending and should be released on October 24 2014... Ok but what am I to do for the a whole month?!?!?!

Called the dealer and of course, we are super busy, and we haven't heard of anyone else having that same issue, go figure. Jeep was towed to the dealer yesterday, now just waiting an a response.

We are have same exact issue. Our 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee which now has about 73K miles but this issue started just around 50K miles or so. Jeep cranks about 10 times and then after about a 5 minute wait it starts up. Fuel Pump runs while its off, literally discovered that 10 minutes ago when I heard something underneath the jeep. I already have two recalls waiting, hoping this recall will come in as it is our only car and it drives my wife and I and our our kids. Jeep has had multiple other issues but overall would NEVER EVER EVER buy a Chrysler again!!!

This is such a dangerous defect....I stalled out twice, once was while i was crossing a huge bridge in my city. The symptoms were stalling out in the middle of driving, exiting the vehicle and the fuel pump would continue to run even when the car is off leading to my battering dying. Turning...turning..turning and not starting which happens about 5 times every morning before I was able to get it to crank. Finally after it cut off on me in the middle of a turn in traffic I had to take it in to the dealer. They informed me that this is very common. They tried to hot wire my fuel relay in my TIPM, before deciding it was my fuel pump. We come to find out it was the TIPM. I bought a new one and had it installed for roughly $1,175...no problems since. Hoping they will reimburse me when they are proven that this is a recall issue. http://blogs.marketwatch.com/thetell/2014/09/20/chrysler-recalls-230000-cars-over-fuel-pump-defects/

2011 GC 5.7 Limited. I just had this same issue, brought car in for service. turns out dealer bypassed TIPM fuel pump relay and wired in an external 12v relay. been about 2-3 weeks, so far, all is well. they didn't say that is what they did, they called it "install over lay harness'. I noticed relay and wires coming out of TIPM when doing something else this weekend. not happy about the lack of truthful communication and service charge,, but, car is working again.

2011 Jeep GC Overland with 42k. Same issue as most others. Suddenly it won't turn over to start. Called Chrysler and they told me that rhey had developed a repair kit for the problem but it is currently unavailable. I was told they are planning a recall in the near future but could not tell me when. They said when the parts are available I can have the repair done and then apply for reimbursement when the recall is finally issued. I am waiting on a call from the parts team at Chrysler to discuss the availability of those parts. Meanwhile I have a Jeep that I cannot drive. This is madness!!

I have a 2011 Dodge Durango. The dealer located and repaired the problem within one day. I had to have the TIPM replaced. It cost me $1400. I was told it might be covered under recall #P54 but that it wasn't expected to be released until 10/24 and to check back then. If it is covered, I should be reimbursed. I called Chrysler today (10/24) and they acted as if they had never heard of this recall and that my car was not covered!

My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland Summit has randomly not wanting to start. I haven't had a problem with it stalling yet. I've been frustrated with the service department at my dealership as they want to charge me $50 for just investigating anything that goes wrong with this vehicle. It's a shame as I really like the car but the maintenance issues are too much. I've had other issues but this problem not starting is the icing on the cake. I'm currently leasing the vehicle and was planning on purchasing it after this month when my lease expires but after reading all of the issues with this TIPM I don't want any more headaches. My appointment is schedule for 11/5/14 with the dealer to give me their diagnosis.

Had similar problem with my 2011 Dodge Durango Heat starting and fuel pump remaining energized after shutting the vehicle off. I made several trips to the dealership with no success as the they said they could not "duplicate" the issue. Each time I mentioned have you checked or interogated the TIPM. Each time was given the reponse, if it doesn't throw a code, we can't check it. Finally after the third visit, and providing dealership with recall information, they replaced under "good will". Replacement TIPM also appeared faulty as fog lights and right blinker would not work properly. I returned to the dealership and after two hours the said it was not wired properly. I believe the TIPM was replaced for a second but the dealership would not confirm only that it had been rewired. Vehicle has been working properly for nearly 3 weeks>

2011 Durango Citidel. Sputters and shakes and will not run. After 3-4 tries it starts fine. Had the issue checked 2 days ago while it was in for the visor fire recall, the dealership said a "code" came up and that Chrysler would replace the win module but it would take a couple of weeks to come in. Told by service writer not to let my son drive it as it is not reliable or safe. Recall after recall... Fire, stalling, what's next? At least it's not a Pinto with Firestne 500's on it!

2011 Durango... I had my throttle accelerating by itself. Then a month later it would crank over but would not start. Nada. Brought to Dodge dealer and they replaced the TIPM. Its been a few weeks and I now noticed when I turn on my right directional both fog lamps blink. And if I turn on the fog lamps they don't come on but the right turn single light comes on solid. Took to dealer again and they said it didn't have any codes. I have to bring back for full diagnosis and I am sure they'll want me to pay again.

2012 Dodge Durango
Vehicle began to had issues starting but once it did the vehicle ran fine. Then the fuel pump began to run all the time but the vehicle was starting right up. Afraid the battery would die we began to pull the fuse for the fuel pump if the vehicle sat for long periods of time. After about a week of that the vehicle began to have issues starting again and now not at all.
I am told it is not covered any under warranty or recall.
My vehicle only has 60k miles this should not be happening.

This has been going on for a couple months. The van wouldn't start and it has stalled in traffic with my 3 kids in the car. I took it to a shop and they diagnosed it as a faulty TPIM and it was going to cost $850 to replace and they would have to put the part on special order because they deal with mostly Japanese imports...probably because they don't see as many problems with the overseas brands...interesting isn't it DODGE?? I spoke with the Dodge dealership here in Las Vegas on Boulder Highway and Sahara, they said it would cost $887..How is it that they make the part and still charge more to fix it, no wonder Detroit is dying. After reading that this is an ongoing problem within this same year of Dodge/Chrysler vehicles, I'm appalled that the company hasn't recalled or done anything about it. A better way to get their attention so they will fix it would be to stack the body bags in front of their corporate offices after THEIR product kills a family of 6 on their way to Disneyland in a Dodge Caravan that stalls in the middle of an LA freeway. Luckily when it stalled on me, we weren't on a busy street, but this is a problem that needs to be solved immediately, or we could just wait for the bodies to stack up...so what will it be Chrysler?? One thing is for sure, I will never buy another Dodge/Chrysler or Jeep product ever and I will warn all of the people in my life that I DON'T want to have die in traffic to never buy a Dodge/Chrysler product. They caused this problem, they won't fix it, I'm done with Dodge.

Got the Tipm replaced two times with the dealer on my 2011 jeep grand cherokee. After they replaced the Tipm. No problem starting up. But my right front light, had no power. Then my fog lights were flashing with my right turn signal. So then they (dealer) replaced the Tipm again. Now everything is working except my fog lights not working at all. The guys at the dealer were very helpful. They knew right away that the Tipm was bad. But so far, I have missed a couple of days of work and still have a problem with the car.

I just bought my 2011 Dodge Durango express 3 weeks ago and this morning when I started it up the windshield wipers came on. They weren't even turned on. I tried everything to get them to turn off. Then I noticed that none of the buttons on my steering wheel work or the blinkers. 10 minutes later the wipers turned off and the blinker and steering wheel buttons started working. Now everytime I start the car the windshield wipers turn on and stay on for about 10-15 minutes and randomly turn off. I called the dealership to get it in, but the soonest they could get me in is Dec. 8th. Also, when we bought the car the driver side blinker bulb went out. They replaced it right away. But I'm beginning to think this might be a TIMP problem. Do you guys think so?

I am having sameissue with my 2011 dodge grand caravan crew i paid 300 to have them do a tipm overlay which is an external relay but its still acting up. Wtf they diagnosed it and fixed it but problem presist should they have just replaced the tipm? They said it would do no good because it would just be a new faulty part they assured me this would fix it.

We have a 2012 Jeep Rubicon and had to replace the battery about a year ago. Today, the battery is dead again and we cannot get the vehicle to start with a jump from my BMW. Nothing was left on. The cabin light comes on and is quite strong when we enter the vehicle. It's very strange that the battery keeps going dead. We may be a victim of this TPIM fiasco!!

My wife's 2012 Durango Crew keeps telling her there is no key in the vehicle even when the car is running. The other issue is the key is in the car but it wont start and also will turn off when backing down the driveway.

I have a 2008 Dodge Nitro. The problem started last year in Spring of 2013. My head lights would flicker on and off. This seem to occur when it would rain out. I had the switch replaced, problem still existed. Then Nov of 2013 my battery was dead from Nov 2013 to Feb 2014 I had to have it jumped 5 times. I replaced the battery. The problem arose again with the lights. It's now at the point I can't drive my vehicle anywhere when it's darl, the lights just go out. I had the Dodge dealership check the problem and asked them after research on the internet and replacing things that haven't fixed the problem to check the TIPM. Well I was just informed by Dodge dealership it's a bad TIPM. The part is on National Backorder, they can't tell me when they will get the part in, could be months. They are not aware of any problems with the TIPM. I said really? So it being on National backorder for months and you guys are not aware of any problems. The part alone will cost between $600-$700 and that is just the part. I'm so frustrated.. I can't drive my vehicle and according to Dodge, I don't know when I will be able to. I can't take a chance for my safety and the publics safety. This is absolutely ridiculous.

Luckily I was not on the freeway and was making a right turn not going very fast since my power steering went out when the Jeep completely died. I'm not very happy. Fixing to call the dealership again and get the run around I'm sure.

We had issues with our 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo not starting. Griffin Hub on 27th Street, Milwaukee replaced the battery, even though it worked perfectly, and we told them that. Charged us $375. We couldn't pick it up that night so the next morning when the tech went out to start it, surprise, Jeep still didn't start. Griffin Hub replaced the starter. Gave us a "deal" and only charged us $100. Jeep still didn't start. RECALL comes out to fix the fuel pump relay (TIPM). Take it in to Wilde Jeep because we were sick and tired of Griffin Hub. Recall taken care of, and Jeep has had NO issues since. So I filed to be reimbursed and now they are saying it isn't related and won't consent for the reimbursement.

I have only owned my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee for 45 days and it has stalled 3 times. Sometimes when I use the push start it will turn the car on, but not turn on the engine. Then I have to wait 15 minutes for the system to time out and go outside and use the automatic start because the brake pedal is stuck. I replaced the key fob batteries.

This just isn't on the Jeep's, or Durango's either. I have owned several Dodge Rams trucks and they locate the IPM under the hood right above the wheel well. Stupid place to have it. These should have been placed inside the vehicle away from the climate or these need redesigned. I am getting sick and tired of replacing these since they are not cheap.

I bought a new (2012) Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland in Feb 2012. I had no problems with it until it was l week out of warranty. Sunday, March 8th, I drove 23 miles to visit some friends in a small town in western Montana. At the end of the visit one couple got into their vehicle, as did I, and we both started our vehicles and prepared to leave. The other guy did a U turn and we talked for a few minutes more through our open driver-side windows. I chose to turn my G.C. off so I could better hear the conversation of the other driver. After 2-3 minutes of conversation the other guy took off and I attempted to start my Jeep. It just turned over and over without starting. I tried again three or four more times to start the vehicle without success. I wondered if the engine might be "flooded" although I couldn't smell any gasoline. I decided to let the car sit for a couple of hours as I met my friends at a local restaurant. Upon returning to the Jeep I tried the remote start feature on the key fob to let the machine start itself. It worked! The car started and drove us home 23 miles away. The next morning for the first start of the day I used the remote start again and the Jeep started just fine. Then I realized I had forgotten some items in the house...turned the car off and went back in the house to get the items. When I went back out to the garage I tried to start the Jeep using the push button ignition. The Jeep turned over and over, but no start; no start using the key fob either. Talked with my dealer by phone, took the car by tow truck to the dealer. Dealer said the sensors indicated nothing wrong and the car started right up. That was the only time I used the car that day. The car then worked fine for a week, then yesterday I drove to the local grocery store at 8PM, picked up a few items then returned to the Jeep. Tried to manually start with the "start" button, but again it turned over and over...no start. Used the key fob but no start. Waited about an hour and a half and restarted successfully using the key fob/remote start featured. I plan to go back in to the dealer and commence the cycle of "we can't find anything wrong with it". I'll get back to you all with the results. Was a recall ever issued on the TIPM?

I just got my 2011 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo back from the dealer for all the recalls (break booster, Fuel pump relay and visor). Now I have issues that I didn't have before... It started with the steering wheel buttons not functioning (right when I picked the car up and I showed it to the people at the service desk - they told me to come back the next day and they would look at it). When I came back the buttons were working so they couldn't do anything, when I went back to work, buttons were not working... So any way now the wipers will not turn off and the turn signals wont work (the dome lights did flash a day ago too). The dealership actually told me they did not touch anything that was related to these issues???? WHAT..Didn't they just modify the TIPM with the relay recall?? and they said they will not fix any of these issues. I cant believe Jeep is this pathetic....

2011 Chrysler Town and Country. Every worked fine. Check engine light came on a few weeks ago and diagnostic said #2bank misfire. No big deal would go off and on intermittently. Then started to shut off after minute after remote start. My wife drove it to the store with the kids and it was fine. She was in the store for 10 minutes, came back out and totally dead. Wont stay running after jump, battery is charged and still nothing. Sounds like another TIPM. I had it towed to the house thinking it was a bad battery, now I have to tow it to the dealer for full diagnostics. 68,xxx miles

We own a 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan with 107k miles. I was driving with my 8 year old son, 9 year old daughter, and 10 year old son towards Las Vegas when at 7pm the headlights turned off while driving! I turned back around to go back home while using only my fog lights which provide only about 50 feet of visibility on a dark highway. Scary! I looked this up only to find that over 7 million vehicles may be affected? And "Chrysler is actively investigating this issue" so I called our local dodge dealer and they told me "I haven't heard anything about this issue, and would cost $110 to diagnose the problem." Now my TIPM makes a buzzing sound and my vehicle has no power, won't start unlock or anything. There are thousands if not millions of us affected but no recall yet? Where is dodge stepping in to take fault and admit this part is faulty and putting it's owners at risk on the road?

Have had the same "turns over, but won't start" problem as everyone else for the past year and a half. Only 24,000 miles since new. I am retired and don't drive as much as the average person. At first, the service rep at the dealer (Furman Motors of New Port Richey Florida) denied that they had ever heard of the problem, much less that it was a common TIPM fault as was widely circulated on the internet. His response was "you certainly don't believe everything that you read on the internet, do you? Anyway, I was a couple of months over the basic 36 month warranty and he gladly offered to make any repairs that were found.....on my nickel...if I would leave the vehicle with them, something that I was not willing to do at that time. I could live with the occasional no start problem (just call one of the kids to come and pickup grandpa and take him home) until hopefully a recall was announced. Then finally.....the recall was announced....what a bummer, no new TIPM, just wire around the old one with an add-on fuel pump relay, completely ignoring all of the other faults caused by the TIPM. My vehicle then began to stall in traffic...this I could not live with. So back to Furman where I met a different and more sympathetic service manager who agreed to do a temporary wire around the TIPM fuel pump relay until the recall parts became available.....Whoo-Hoo....no more starting-stopping problems. This guy was actually very nice. Thanks Mike, But now, a few months later, strange things are beginning to occur, the windshield wipers will start anytime the vehicle is started and cannot be turned off and the turn signals will not function, a couple of items that I assume are also controlled by the TIPM. I am reminded of one of my previous vehicles, a 1980 Mercedes 300SD, which, in order to sell to the US doctor/lawyer crowd had to be equipped with an automatic climate control system, something that was not deemed necessary in Europe. Not having the time to engineer a system of their own, they simply bought a system from another luxury auto maker...Chrysler. I think that by the time that I sold the car with only about 120,000 miles on it, it had been through 5-6 of the system controllers at about $1500 each plus installation.

I have 2013 Dodge Durango. Every time it gets over 76 degrees outside my car losses all power. I only have have 27,000 miles on the vehicle. I've brought it into the dealership several times to avail. The problem is, once the car runs for awhile the power returns. It's leaving no codes when this happens, so, the dealer refuses to take it in or give me a loner. I only have 3,000 miles left on my warranty and I fear for the worse.

I bought a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee about a week ago. Upon bringing it home, the next day I found that the wipers did not work. I took it in to the dealer, and they gave me a loaner. They kept my Jeep for three days, and when I went to pick it up the seat belt and air light would not go off. I took it back they reset the computer, problem solved. However, they replaced the TIPM, and when driving home from school the next night, I realized my turn signals were really bright. I checked it when I got home, and realized that the right fog light is now acting as the turn signal. Also, when I turn on the fog lights the right blinker lights up as the fog light. This will be the third time in a week of ownership I have to take it back to the dealer. The dealer has been helpful so far, but hopefully they'll be able to provide another loaner while this gets fixed. It is a major inconvenience and I bought this vehicle to get rid of vehicle that was having issues, not to run into more issues.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee owner and am having the same issues of engine not turning over which seemed to start around 30k miles but now are consistent at 70k+ miles. I initially thought it was my push-to-start and for awhile it would start if I used my actual car key. This morning it still had trouble starting with the key. Reading all these responses and concerned now about having the TIPM replaced with all the wonky side effects after and even more worried about it stalling on the highway with my family in it. Coincidentally I did bring my jeep in 2 weeks ago for a check engine light that they said was a faulty gas cap but I recall the service manager saying something about a fuel pump not turning off. Have been extremely unhappy with my jeep since day 1 as the dealership (Grava Chrysler Medford, MA) sold it to me with a faulty back up camera and have been unsuccessful fixing the issue after 5 trips to the dealership to have it rewired and replaced. Leaning towards dumping the car and buying a Honda Pilot now after seeing all the repairs that lie ahead (already replaced tires, replaced shocks, and will need new brakes eventually)

2012 paid for Dodge Citadell, loved my vehicle but from day one bought it brand new, had engine light go on and off, at times if i pressed gas pedal while driving the rpms would go high but my car would not accelerate, would have to put in neutral and then back in drive and it would go back to normal. Had issues with starter and it was over my waranty so we had to pay to replace the tipm with new one. At this time recall had not been issued. Since then on March 20th it stalled while driving, luckily my husband stopped in middle of road and had to restart it... shortly after that we got the recall notice stating that you could loose power when driving. couple weeks later as I am driving to church, I took a left turn accelerated under yellow light and can you believe it stalled out. I lost power steering and controll, facing on coming traffic I almost hit the medal crosswalk pole and had 2 of my kids in car with me..I complained to chrysler and told them how unsafe it was.... if your a small female or young driver there is no way to power your way and steer it to safety, I am strong and could barely do it once I was stopped. customer service was a joke, they just said they would replace it with the same defective tipm they replaced with back in March. Hmmmm the service rep says thats all we can do for you untill the back ordered parts are in. I think not. I am a home health nurse and drive up to 60 miles a day and they said they cant garantee it wont do it again but they are doing what they are told. so I asked for a loaner car. nope they cant do that for us either. so they know its unsafe and are negligent to have their poor do boys and girls from customer service tell us that is all they can tell us for right now.. I am done with Dodge, looking for a new car now. I am not getting back in that car. It will kill somebody and I warned everybody I could at Chrysler. They just say sorry...

In one day last week, the temperature gauge light on my 2010 Jeep Patriot went on and my AC wasn't getting cool. Diagnostic tests came back indicating both were fine. After a few more diagnostic tests, my mechanic was stunned to see the problem was my TIPM. He advised me to speak with someone at jeep directly as this problem "is an area of the car that should NEVER go bad". I expressed concern that my vehicle was purchased used and the warranty expired but he was insistent that this is a serious issue that should be taken care of by jeep as its almost unheard of. Well apparently not because I was shocked to see chat rooms and forums regarding the amount of Jeep / Chrysler vehicles with this same issue yet no recall has been put into place. I emailed jeep directly and was told someone would get back to me within 1 day. I never received a call. I LOVE my jeep and i LOVE being a jeep owner. I've recommend Jeep to friends and family.

2012 Durango has stalled while driving about four times in the last month. This directly after having to replace the transmission cooler and a mechanical damper in the dash so the AC runs right. All this hits in about three weeks. Currently the dealership, which has been pretty good to deal with, have done the recalls, but they can't figure out what the problem is. They have given me a loaner. My gut tells me the TIPM just needs replacing, but who knows? Unfortunately, I'm at 65000 miles, so no warranty coverage so far on anything. I haven't dealt with corporate, only gone through the dealership. Luckily so far I haven't paid out of pocket for this issue as AAA has been busy towing, and so far the dealership hasn't charged for their time, fixes and recall fixes, and now we have a loaner they've provided. However, I don't want to hear it if shown a $1200 repair for a new TIPM.

Had I known that all of these symptoms were related and I could possibly fix them and not pay utilizing my basic warranty, that would be GREAT! But no.

2011 Dodge Durango Citadel 3.6L V6- Yesterday got out of my car and it smelt like an electrical fire. i saw smoke coming out from under the hood. i opened the hood and noticed smoke doing up from where the alternator is. The battery went dead, so I wound up changing the alternator(one of the most expensive $625) and the battery($200). the car started and ran great for about ten minutes then my battery light came on. I went to the store and the battery light went off and everything seemed fine. i got back in my car and the dash just lite up with all my dash lights coming on. On the drive home less than half a mile my lights came on and off. my wipers went on by themselves and it seemed that my car was going thru a cycling process cause everything in my car was going off and on. i almost wrecked my car because my power steering went out and my brakes where hard to push. Definitely having electrical issues!will be taken it to the dealership on Monday but expect to get the run around!Wish me luck!

I am having the same issues with my 2010 Chrysler 300, 3.5L V6. Car will randomly shut off, will not start unless you wait at least 10 minutes then will just stall again after a minute. All lights on the dash are on, TIPM relay clicking constantly, car will only restart after it stops clicking only to shut off on its own again. A/C will not work, trouble code faults TIPM power disruption to A/C clutch. One Chrysler tech told me the front fuse panels are faulty but I would have to pay to replace it at my own expense (discussion was after hours and not at the dealership) of around $1200 and that it would happen again since the replacement panels are the same as the one they are replacing. He also told me the cars were plagued with electrical problems and told me to get rid of it as it will only be a money pit as long as I owned it. Is their anything you can do to help me and other 300 owners who were unfortunate enough to have purchased one of these lemons?

Now the entire tipm has went crazy every dash warning light flashing it was in park and switched itself into reverse. I shut it off the radio went off driver seat quit working heater ac reverse camera airbag everything not working all indicator light flashing oh and the ABS light went off. Now it won't start . I jumped it off and started driving g for same thing to happen and it stalled got it started again and it won't allow me to take it out of park. .batter is new replaced it 1&1/2 yr ago. Now I'll be buying new battery and I guess a TIPM out my own pocket. I was told the 450 I spent overlaying fuel pump would fix it. Now what 1000 more... and if we buy the TIPM and replace ourselves will it affect the fuel pump overlay? ?

I have a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland and never had an issue with the TIPM but have had several other issues. Just last week the dealer replaced the TIPM under the Chrysler recall with a defective part. I was left stranded tonight like the rest of Chrysler's victims. At least when the Jeep won't start, I can't notice the erratic transmission shifting.

Dodge Citadel 2011 - sometimes hard to start or dies as you're driving. Cruise control will randomly stop working, Backup camera randomly stopped working and now doesn't work at all, Fuel pump will randomly continue to run after turning the car off - have to disconnect the battery to stop it. Want the TIPM replaced, not repaired the way the company wants to fix it. It is a bad design, they need to make it right for everyone that purchased a vehecle from them that is affected.

I have a 2012 grand cherokee overland with just 24000 mls. No complaints until last month it just refused to start, after several tries it started. I thought that was my battery, just last week it did the same thing again, put me to shame in front of my envied cherokee friends, the i was concerned after spending $46,000 US on that vehicle. Just yesterday it just will not start, lucky for me its in the garage. My greatest problem is I leave in Dominica, and there is no chrysler dealership on the Island, so am stuck. If only i could find that part I will install it myself.

This isn't my first Dodge vehicle that I've owned but with this ongoing problem and a recall that doesn't replace the whole TIPM I really have a bad taste in my mouth with Dodge. A recall that adds a relay that doesn't fix the real problem with the whole TIPM board. I've taken the vehicle back over 5 time for the same problem and even after recall the problem is still not fixed. Every time the car goes back, its more money out of the pocket. Dodge is leaving a really nasty taste in my mouth after owning my 2012 Dodge Durango.

I have a 2011 Chrysler Town & Country with 67,000 miles on it. I brought it to a dealer for the rear vent widow switch recall & figured I'd have them go through the whole thing, since it's still under extended warranty til April 2016. I told them to check the alternator(flickering headlights & sluggish starts), the rear camera(stopped working), the park assist system(keep getting a message to service the system) & blind spot detection system(constant false alarms). They had it for 2 days, charged me $100 and told me they found nothing wrong. The van died 2 days later with a whining alternator and a metallic burning smell! I called the dealer and they told me if I bring it to them & if they find nothing wrong I would still have to pay another $100 diagnostic fee(Yeah right!). I got the van running and took it to a private garage I trust and have been using for years (it died 100 feet from their front door and would not restart). They called me the next day and said the van has a bad TiPM and it would be several days to get the part. 5 days later, the garage called to tell me they installed the new TiPM only to discover that the problem was not the TiPM but the ECM, which is covered by Chrysler's 8yr/80,000mile emissions warranty and they couldn't do anything else at this time. I had to pay the garage a $140 diagnostic fee and have the van towed(at my expense) to another Chrysler dealer for the repair. SO, I've been without my van for almost 3 weeks now, have had to pay $300 with no repairs done to a van that doesn't run and I still don't have a clear answer to what's wrong. Any advice with this fiasco would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I am hoping Canada Chrysler is served with a class action lawsuit! People need to push this forward as Chrysler US under court order has reached a settlement agreement, voluntary recall of 2011-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango SUVs to install a stronger pump relay external to the TIPM-7. The recall is based on findings the SUVs can experience failures in the fuel pump relay within the TIPM-7 that could result in a stall condition or the inability to start the SUVs. Customers are also being offered reimbursement for the rental cars and unnecessary replacement batteries/ parts for the Stalling issue, Wipers going on by themselves.

I have had all the symptoms. Stalling at a light, thankfully it was at a non-busy area. Won't start, had this happen once at 11,000 feet in Colorado with my wife and 2 kids, kind of scary at dusk in bear country and having to wait anxiously try after try to get the engine started. Altered the rest of the trip for sure. There are hack jobs, but a new TIPM is needed from my understanding. Now the fuel pump will not shut off, going to take for repair on Monday.

My Jeep was taken to a mechanic shop and the mechanic thought that it was the alternator and battery, low and behold the TIPM caused the battery and alternator to stall!

I had no choice as the wiring harness was rotting, which according to Chrysler canada was my fault. The dealership told me that there wasn't a replacement part available so I was screwed.

My 2012 Durango that I recently purchased has problems starting (probably every other time) but after 2,3, or 4 attempts will start. In addition, in the 2 months that I have owned it, the vehicle has stalled out three times, once sitting, once at 40 mph while accelerating, and once at 20 mph while accelerating. The previous owner had the fuel pump bypass recall issue resolved according to records from Dodge.

My wife has a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and I have genuine hatred for this overpriced plastic piece of crap. Anyhow it would start when it felt like it for about 8 months. We kept replacing the key fob battery until it wouldn't start at all. Had the dealership put in the fuel pump relay as it was a recall. The relay in the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) failed so the "fix" is to crudely wire an external one into the TIPM. Next the wipers started coming on randomly and the battery light would do the same thing. Now the thing will start but all the idiot lights come on in the dash, the wipers come on full blast on their own and the thing may or may not want to let you shift out of park. Other issues with the thing include: rear wiper stopped working, radio stopped working, one of the door locks stopped working, lightning bolt dash light comes on and off, traction control coming on and off randomly and I'm sure that I am forgetting others.

What a fricking nightmare this thing is! And extremely unsafe! This vehicle is a high priced piece of unsafe junk. I will never put another penny in chrysler's overfilled pockets again! Chrysler should be held to account for stealing from ordinary people! I cannot in good conscience see my wife (whom I love very much) go driving in this potential deathtrap.

I turned it off out it back in park and turned it back on. Then it ran without issue. I took it into the dealership and there was a note that the ecu reset but was advised there wasn't anything that could be done. I was also advised to reach out to Chrysler. But after reviewing posts online I want to know why they haven't reached out to me and other owners since this is a serious issue. Cars aren't supposed to shut off while driving.

I just want to log this note publicly, in case anything happens to me. My 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee just started having this problem, where it will sometimes start right up, and other times it takes 5 to 15 tries. It cranks, but acts like no fuel. It runs fine when it does start. I suspect the TIPM is not activating the fuel pump correctly, but that's just a guess. If it quits while I'm driving in typical Denver traffic, my family and I could be in serious trouble.

I HAD a 2011 Grand Cherokee Limited. I paid $3000 out of pocket for the FIRST TIPM replacement at 63500 miles. Chrysler reimbursed me in full. A year later, the NEW TIPM failed again at 81000 miles.. Since the problem was not fuel pump related, I had to shell out $1043 to replace the second TIPM. They refused to pay for it. I just traded it in to GET RID of it. I also traded in a 2007 Grand Cherokee/ I don't feel Chysler will admit to the issue, nor do I think they care about the safety of their customers. I feel that they owe me for the second faulty TIPM.

2012 5.7 Hemi, I have been having the same stalling issue for 2 years. It regularlly happens at the same turn about 10 miles from home as I slow down with my directional on and apply the brakes while turning into the right turn lane. I noticed that even though I brought it up at every service visit, the dealer never documented it on my repair order. They told me they never heard of this problem before. On one particular visit the told me it was the TIPM module that was not covered under the warranty and needed to be replaced at a cost of over $1,200.00. I made a stink about them hiding the past complaints by not documenting them in the service record and they quickly offered to replace the part and only charge me the $100.00 deductible. The problem did not go away.
