So the dealer checked the signals coming from the TIPM to the fuel pump relay and this is where things are going awry. As many have reported there are two solutions:
1. replace TIPM ($$$ - to the tune of $1300)
2. put in relay to bypass faulty TIPM Fuel Pump Relay ($ - $70 in parts, 1-2hrs in labour)
Not sure how long it takes for a recall to go from a "trusty source" on a forum to being communicated to us owners, so I've opted for the fuel pump relay trick.
So nothing wrong with the fuel pump in our vehicles it's purely that stupid fuel pump relay in the TIPM. I've found the Star Case report a couple times, but can't seem to round it up. It gives step by step instruction on how anyone with a little wiring knowledge can bypass the TIPM relay.
