Re: TIPM Recall

Well, rather than battle it out with Chrysler over the TIPM, I decided it just wasn't worth it anymore.

Ditched the 2012 Jeep GC and got into a brand new Audi.

I loved that Jeep, but new heads, expensive emergency alternator repair and this recent TIPM thing in the middle of winter was the last straw. All on a vehicle under 3 years old

Disappointed I had give up the Jeep but thrilled about the new Audi.

Good luck with your trucks.

Sorry it took so long to update. Jeep runs fine, in fact I got the official recall letter and the dealer replaced his work around with the Chrysler supplied part.

Our Challenger ran 10.87 @ 125+ mph at track in Atco, NJ. I need to to update my signature.

Re: TIPM Recall

Update

Took the GC back to the dealer for the fish bite issue. They are able to duplicate the problem. After 2 days they insisted that a tune up would fix the issue. I had them go ahead with that and the injector cleaning.

I should have known better. I didn't fix the problem.

Not sure what to do next. I may contact Chrysler directly or try the other Jeep dealer in town.

Outstanding! Thanks for the update, Hemiwoman. It would take a long time to get the satisfied grin off my face with a time/speed like that.

I installed the relay kit yesterday. Total cost was around $72 at my local dealer. I could have spent less by getting the relay kit elsewhere but I was in a hurry. The inline fuse I could have got a my local NAPA. It took me about 3 hours to install including the time to build the little relay harness. Seems to have fixed my issues. Time will tell for sure.
Just checking in folks. My wife has put on 10K miles since I installed the relay kit. Not one hiccup. Also- I've managed to get my local dealer to reimburse me for the purchase of the relay kit. Happy Happy Happy

Re: TIPM Recall

Just got the recall done for the relay. Had the TIPM changed 15 months ago. Sorry but what a hack job this external relay is. Any who lifetime warranty so let it blow up U guess. It stalled first time last week decelerating from 50, hop this is the fix.

Re: TIPM Recall

I replaced my TIPM in August. I submitted request for refund late November and received my full refund on Friday

Re: TIPM Recall

Mine is acting up in extreme cold, WTF-> reason I type that is I have not even had it a week “gulp”

In any event, I plugged my vin# into the Jeep web site, it noted no recalls or notifications for mine.

I’m considering changing out the relay as pointed out in the beginning of this thread.



Also, I read about a brake recall? That is obviously concerning. I hope thesethings are not too trouble prone.

Aside from any issues, I really love the truck.

Re: TIPM Recall

This was just expanded to some 2012-2013 models.


FCA US to recall 467,000 Dodge Durangos, Jeep Grand Cherokees

27 February 2015: FCA US, the company previously known as Chrysler, said Friday it is recalling 467,480 Dodge Durangos and Jeep Grand Cherokees worldwide to install new a relay circuit to fix a fuel pump.

The automaker said the fuel pumps might be susceptible to deformation that prevents a vehicle from starting, or lead to an engine stall.

Of the two issues, the failure to start is the more common. FCA US said it is unaware of any injuries or accidents caused by the defect.

It's the same problem that caused the recall of 189,000 other SUVs in September of last year, bringing the total to more than 656,000. A safety advocate says the recall should be expanded even further, contending that problems affect up to 5 million Fiat Chrysler vehicles with similar parts.

The fuel-pump relay is located inside a power module that also helps manage other vehicle functions. FCA said no other functions are affected by the fuel-pump relay.

The recall campaign affects an estimated 338,216 vehicles in the U.S.; 18,991 in Canada; 10,829 in Mexico and 99,444 outside of North America.

The recall affects certain 2012 and 2013 Dodge Durango SUVs and 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokees sold outside of North America with 3.0-liter diesel engines. Current vehicles with EcoDiesel engines are not affected.

The vehicles will be fixed at no cost and owners will be notified if their vehicle is affected.

Owners with questions may call the FCA US Customer Information Center at 1-800-853-1403.

The Center for Auto Safety, a nonprofit advocacy group founded by Ralph Nader, says that FCA's recall is inadequate because millions of other Chrysler vehicles have the same fuel pump power control module as the Grand Cherokee and Durango.

The group filed a petition last year asking the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to investigate power system failures in Chrysler vehicles that could cause them to stall while being driven.

Well what a surprise!

Lets review what I said on post # 38 of this thread;

2012 Overland 5.7L Hemi...... I just had my TIPM replaced under warrantee for this same issue. Mopar part # 68244870AA. This is not the same TIPM it came from the factory floor with. New upgraded part from a different supplier than the original failure prone TIPM modules

This problem will happen to everyone who owns a 2011~ 2013 WK2 eventually.......... These TIPM's are all destined to have failed internal fuel pump relays. Chrysler is well aware of the problem but so far have only announced a safety recall for 2011 WK2's that bypasses the internal fuel pump relay with an external one.

Chrysler has installed these faulty TIPM's in over a million of their vehicles and are trying to limit their costs and liabilities by not recalling them all at once! It appears these faulty TIPM's begin to exhibit signs of failure at about 30~40K miles, so if you own a 2012 or 2013 WK2 that's still under the 3yr 36k mile factory bumper to bumper warrantee you might want to get your TIMP swapped out NOW!! This issue will happen to YOU, it can't be avoided if you own a 2011~2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee!
