Same here it's at random times too I feel it's more when the car is cold but yet again last Saturday I drove it for a good while and it did it after I started it again it wants to start but it's just not catching something I finally gave in and took it in hopefully it'll be something minor
I'll update as soon as the mechanic lets me know

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee 3.6l won't start

Burtim it wasn't covered because I have gone over warranty and i didn't purchase a extended warranty. I usually don't and take my chances.


Yeah sounds like the same issue I had but hopefully yours is still under warranty so you don't have to come out of pocket.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee 3.6l won't start

I got a call from the mechanic so far they advised me that's it's on the starter or the battery but they want the car to do what it's been doing to me (not starting) but so far it's been starting good with them so hopefully I get good news later

That is a canned diagnosis from most dealers, as they would rather have you come in several times, sell you a battery, starter etc. than just replace the T.I.P.M. which WILL solve the starting problems for good. Our dealer tried that tactic with me, and I did not fall for it. 2 TIPM's later, all is well now. Glad we bought the Max Care warranty.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee 3.6l won't start

Well I got my car back today I took it in yesterday they diagnosed that it was the TIPM and well yea they gave me to alternatives one to do something temporally but they did advice that the problem would come back eventually if I didn't do the whole TIPM change the second was to replace the TIPM completely and it was a big money difference but I opted to do it the right way I replace the whole thing and I got a ok price I guess since I been seeing others have been paying 1500 I payed 1,086 total with tax labor and parts I had no extended warranty the car is like new now I just wish things like these wouldn't happen especially on a new car
I also had my air conditioning (blend door) and my faulty passenger window fixed for $60 from a mechanic friend
I just hope thats all I have to deal with for a while 😁

Man that really sucks but bet your glad it's finally fixed. I know it was a big relief for me when it was all said and done.

I'm pasting this from my reply to another thread.

I knew about this before I bought mine and purchased MaxCare. No issues yet and am just waiting for it to happen.
You're not alone.

Re: 2012 Grand Cherokee 3.6l won't start

Does anyone know why my fog lights are not working now I just noticed now is it because the new TIPM installed? They worked fine before

Installed my rebuilt TIPM from ARspeedometer ($269) works great I highly recommend going that route if you have no warranty and your TIPM is the issue.

Relieved to have it fixed though, it was a major pain in the ass.
If they installed a fuel pump relay it probably was a bad TIPM. That's the cheap way of fixing the TIPM problem.
