11 grand cherokee problem starting

I have a 2011 grand cherokee laredo x with 33k miles and recently it's been happening so often that when I want to start the car it doesn't right away like it stalls for quite a while I have to turn it off and try again like yesterday I had to repeat the same thing over and over until it decided to start
Can anyone help me with this problem? How much will it cost me to fix? And if is something I should really worry about thanks?

It is without a doubt a T.I.P.M. problem. (Totally Integrated Power Module)
We have a 2011 with the same problem. Only had it 3 months (44K miles) and it has been in the dealer 4 times (currently in today for 2nd T.I.P.M. replacement) The Module is $1,200 plus labor. Thankfully we have MaxCare and it only costs us $100 deductible one time. Good luck, you will need it.

Re: 11 grand cherokee problem starting

We kept driving it until it was convenient to take it in. It is becoming a real source of aggravation for us. We like most about the Jeep, but this problem is not going over very well with my wife.

I have a 2011 Laredo X and this is a known problem with the TIPM.
If your dealer can replicate the non start issue the fixed is more than likely a relay they'll install to resolve the problem. My JGC was fortunately still under warranty, but my service advisor said the cost to install the relay is about $300.

Re: 11 grand cherokee problem starting

The first TIPM corrected our non start issue. The 2nd TIPM we are having installed tomorrow will hopefully correct the fog lights that don't work when you turn them on, but DO work when you have headlights on and make a left turn only.

Re: 11 grand cherokee problem starting

I called a friend today that works at jeep dealer fixing them and ask if he has seen a lot of people coming in for this. I am having the same issue with my wife's 2012 GC and he said there hasn't but today a lady brought one in for almost the same exact issue I am having. He explained that they diagnosed it and it seems that the battery needed to be replaced. They replaced it and road tested it and the problem didn't come back. I'm hoping i am so lucky to only be a battery problem because I'm not sure if I'm ready to spend over a grand on the TIPM issue. I have been seeing more people saying its TIPM failure than battery replacement issue but gotta take a shot.

Re: 11 grand cherokee problem starting

Battery is cheaper than TIPM, but I can almost guarantee that IF the battery really needs replacing, the TIPM caused it.

So you think if I replace the battery and the TIPM is bad it will just drain my new battery again?

It is quite possible. The real question should be, Do you know why your battery died on such a new vehicle already? Did the dealer explain why the battery was dead ?
I am on original factory battery in my 2004 Avalon, and it has not died yet.

Re: 11 grand cherokee problem starting

When I took it to the dealer for my oil change I brought this issue I been having and the guy told me he wouldn't be able to get me a definite answer without diagnosing it but said it might be the batter that had gone out. I asked the exact same question as you and said why the battery would already need to be replaced. He came back with the hot weather we been having in Cali for awhile now is not normal so probably made the battery go out. I thought that was BS.
