Recall for the TIPM

So my vehicle has started to have peculiar problems such as it would try to start by cranking a long time then stopping. The second try is usually successful. Once when I be going on an on-ramp and the vehicle just stalled. A week later I was coming off the freeway and it just stalled.

I received a notice for a TIPM recall where the fuel pump could operate intermittently or fail without warning. Well, this was right up my alley. So I called the dealer to get this done. "Sorry, there's not even a part number for this. You probably want to call the number on the notice."

So I called the number and spoke to the man and he said the new part wasn't available yet. Maybe November. Sigh. He said I'd probably want to get this fixed as soon as possible, then send the repair receipt in when the recall part is available and if it's determined to be the same problem I'll get reimbursed. Also, to bring the car in to get the new part installed. Hmmm.

I wish Chrysler would have the part available when the recall notice is sent to us. The last one, the brake cover, took close to 8 months to get put onto my car.

Re: Recall for the TIPM

Yeah, it's pretty frustrating. I talked with them a couple weeks ago about this. They didn't give me an ETA on the replacement parts. November isn't good

We have a long trip planned with our travel trailer in tow in June. I hate the thought of being stranded, but I also hate the thought of not using my GC for its purpose. The wife said that she doesn't want to take the trip if it isn't fixed.

Yeah, I'm a bit worried about driving on the freeway nowadays for fear that it'll just die. In fact, I've taken to driving in the right lane or next to it as much as possible. I really want to wait until the part is available so I don't need to do the work twice and submit my receipt and wait (and wait and wait) for them to reimburse. Something tells me I won't have the luxury of waiting.

Re: Recall for the TIPM

Hate to be the bearer of bad news but I was having very similar problems beginning late last year. Starting issues and engine shutting off, usually as I was slowing down getting ready to stop. I knew about the TIPM problem and, even though Chrysler had not yet issued a recall for my vehicle, I figured I'd replace the part and to get reimbursed should a recall come through. I was able to get a brand-new TIPM module through a friend of a friend and replaced it in February of this year. First couple of weeks were fine... no troubles. One day on my way to work, the car shut off while I was at a light. Started back up right away and I thought, "Maybe I accidentally turned it off." Well, today the car definitely shut off as I was approaching an intersection getting ready to make a turn. The module that I installed is dated 12-19-2014.

Oh geez. Really? Thank you for letting me know this. I'm starting to think, after reading your account, that maybe it might be better to wait until the recall fix comes out. My problem hasn't reared its ugly head this week and, as you said, the stalls happened when I was slowing down. That's something that I can deal with as long as someone isn't tailgating me. I just need to use a little strength to turn the wheels to the side of the road when the engine is off.

Recall for the TIPM

Have you tried getting service from more than one dealer? I had the fuel pump relay recall done by a small rural Chrysler dealer. They had it in stock and my WK2 was the only vehicle scheduled for service that morning. Well worth the extra 20 miles getting to them. Absolutely no starting or stalling issues since having the recall performed.

Re: Recall for the TIPM

I have had the recall done TIpM and fuel relay still stalling. My dealer is being really cool about it and im getting another tipm next week. I had one of the early reman ones they are going to install a brand new one this time and we checked when i was there and the parts guys supposedly only has new ones left.
Stalled 3 times so far only one nearly killed me.
Next question is do the new tipm have the new fuel relay where they can pull the recall relay back out or does it stay in?

Re: Recall for the TIPM

Can the TIPM be swapped road-side in case of failure? If so, what's the part number?

Re: Recall for the TIPM

It's actually not that hard to replace... but computer needs to be flashed after replacement. I did mine myself, everything seemed to be fine but noticed some minor issues so I decided to take it to the dealer to flash it. By the time I got there (about ten miles from my home) steam was coming out from under the hood and antifreeze was coming out of the overflow tube. Dealer ended up (supposedly) replacing the water pump... Claimed the overheating had nothing to do with the TIPM problem. This happened in February. Engine started cutting out again just recently. My Quadralift has also been acting up. Went out to my car this morning and it looked like a hotrod... front end was at low (park) setting and rear was at level 2. I love the vehicle but my patience is wearing out. I really wish I had gone with my instincts and bought the Ford Raptor.

Re: Recall for the TIPM

Wow a lot of misinformation in this thread about TIPM's, new TIPM's, newer TIPM's, Chryslers recall for the faulty fuel pump relay built into the problematic failing TIPM's....... So let me clarify;

First Chrysler has installed these faulty failing TIPM modules into hundreds of thousands of their new vehicles over several car lines, including all 2011~2013 WK2's both V6's and Hemi's. This problem will happen to every 2011~2013 WK2 eventually! It can't be avoided as the internal fuel pump relay built into these faulty TIPM's will eventually fail. Other internal TIPM relays have also failed leading to a multitude of other electrical problems that are very difficult to diagnose! This usually occurs at about 30~40K miles for most, after the 3yr 36 month warrantee has expired. My parts guru tells me these TIPM's have had five or six revisions with superseding part numbers over the past several years, which indicates Chrysler is well aware of the problem with these TIPM's and has been for quite a while. He also told me a "new" TIPM kit has been manufactured from a different supplier with yet another new superseding part number to fix this issue with an allegedly newer/better part? These newly redesigned TIPM module kits just became available (past 6 months) thru Chrysler's parts pipeline and here are the Mopar part numbers for them;

**BirchyBoy....the new TIPM Kit OEM Chrysler part #'s are;

Mopar part # 68244870AA for 5.7L V8's.
MSRP for this new TIPM Kit is $910.00/Dealer Cost ~ $546.00

Mopar part # 68244852AA for 3.6L V6's.
MSRP for this new TIPM Kit is $905.00/Dealer Cost ~ $545.00

Note these prices have recently gone up!

**Rondog699 & scittb..... The replacement TIPM's you had installed probably were still older/faulty remanufactured versions that were destined to fail like the OEM factory installed one. What were the part #'s for the replacement TIPM's you had installed?? Check your dealer service invoices.

**Rondog699....These TIPM modules aren't really that hard to replace if you get your hands on one, and they DO NOT require a flash to make them work. Only the negative battery cable needs to be removed before you R/R the TIPM module and you should be able do this yourself with common hand tools.

**nathantw..... I wouldn't be so eager to wait for Chrysler to hack into your main wiring harness and graft an external fuel pump relay to "fix" this issue with their official recall solution to this problem!

Procedure here;
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/rc_P5414.pdf

You would be much better off to have this fixed the right way with a new redesigned TIPM part!

Thanks for the information. The part is available for about $600 online. I wonder if I could buy it and then request reimbursement.

If your no longer under warrantee that's probably the best course of action!
Especially if you just got on of these recall letters from Chrysler;

http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/rc_P0915.pdf

I don't see how Chrysler could deny your reimbursement claim if they aren't willing to fix your Jeep the right way, with a new part. What are you supposed to do if your Jeep won't start at all, or if it leaves you stranded somewhere randomly & you need your Jeep to run now?? Don't forget you are entitled to reimbursement for both the part and installation.

I got lucky to still be under warrantee when I had my TIPM replaced w/the latest superseded TIPM kit several months ago and I haven't had any problems since.
