I have MaxCare, so it is costing me $100, unless they release the recall before they can actually get the part and install it.
It's in the TIPM. Replacing the entire TIPM with the revised one solves the problem, but the recall is just to jumper a new relay outside the TIPM. That's the fix they did to mine this week- you can see it peeking out between the TIPM and the fender.
It seems some people's dealers are replacing the whole thing, but my guess is that as the news about the add on relay gets out that's going to be the usual fix going forward.
It DOES fix the problem, it may just not leave you feeling as warm and fuzzy as a whole new (nondefective) TIPM. But hey, as long as it works and Chrysler stands behind it, I can get over it.
