Re: Doesn't start by push button

Totally Integrated Power Module. Under the hood on the passenger side. Large box with fuses on top.

If you have no warrenty and do not use a dealer, you really should buy the factory service manual CD.

Before replacing the TIPM you should verify that it is not the fobic however if nothing displays in the EVIC when you push the button then it could just be the button.

Re: Doesn't start by push button

I was having a similar problem on my wife's 2011. It would crank, fire but not start, crank some more and sometimes start and idle rough for a few seconds other times not start at all. I read all the headaches about the TIPM and was checking fuses etc. I noticed she had a charger plugged in the 12v hot power point in the console. I unplugged it just on a whim thinking it was interfering with the remote start or effecting my battery etc. It has started normal every time since unplugging it over a month ago. I suspect my battery has a bad cell, but have not had the time to have it tested. Can anyone else who is having the problem verify that they are using the 12v port in the console?

Re: Doesn't start by push button

There was something in the owner's manual that basically said if something in the system isn't working right, unplug or turn off anything aftermarket as it might interfere with the Jeep's system. Even a charger gives off some kind of energy.

Re: Doesn't start by push button

No charger that is not specifically designed to be clean puts out pure DC, it will have a 60hz component in it. The issue is that some sensors and actuators really are AC (e.g. "pulse width modulated") and their signals can be scrambled by any sinusoidal component in the DC.

Alternators are specially constructed to minimise this. Cheap chargers & wall warts are not. Many GM cars will not start if a charger is connected.

So not surprising al all.

Re: Doesn't start by push button

It is the TIPM

Here is the issue, the TIPM has real relays and what Chrysler refers to as virtual relays.

I think there are five of them. that is why you won't see the location of the fuel pump relay on the TIPM cover or in the owner's manual.

Unfortunately the fuel pump relay is one of the virtual relays so if it is failing then the entire TIPM has to be replaced.

For this repair you may have to have the dealer do is since some of the features in your vehicle are controlled by it so it may need to be programmed.

Re: Doesn't start by push button

Well fellow jeep owners, this issue has struck me aswell. Thankfully due to this thread I had somewhere to start (I LOVE THIS PLACE). So as aforementioned, Chrysler has been made aware of this part resulting in problems. The part in question; the TIPM, or Totally Integrated Power Module, is essentially your entire fuse box. The part runs about $800.00.
Jeep has developed a new harness and relay system to add onto the existing TIPM to prevent a casualty like this from occurring and it can be added onto the existing TIPM at the request of the customer. It runs about $475.00 prior to installation. Adding the harness will apply physical relays to the virtual ones aswell preventing say a fuel pump burnout.
I can say likely signs that your TIPM is degrading an nearing a casualty are systems remaining on long after complete shutdown of the vehicle I.e fuel pump runs for 45 mins post turning vehicle off (that would sound like a leaking drivers side rear wheel or a vacuum). If you experience that precluding the constant crank and no engine ignition I highly recommend taking your car as soon as possible to a dealership before your TIPM actually "burns out" (could actually melt components inside) hope this helps
