TIPM Recall

From a very helpful insider on another forum:

"2011 WD/WK Recall - Chrysler P54 (TIPM)
FYI-

Chrysler Group LLC (Chrysler) announced a safety recall on all 2011 model year (WD/WK) Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokee equipped with a 3.6L or 5.7L engine.
Some of the above vehicles may experience a failure in the electric fuel pump relay located within the Totally Integrated Power Module-7 (TIPM-7). A vehicle with a failed fuel pump relay may intermittently or permanently:
 not start.
 not start on the first attempt.
 not stay running upon startup.
 cause the engine to stall while driving.
 cause the electric fuel pump to remain energized after vehicle shutdown.
Chrysler will conduct a voluntary safety recall on all involved vehicles to install a standalone external electric fuel pump relay.

Note: this is an announcement. This recall has not yet been launched. I'm not sure at this point of timing and the the affected vehicle list is not yet complete.
Recall Notification will be mailed to the customer's address on record.
Launched/outstanding recalls can be checked on-line using the VIN on the Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep brand Web sites through the "For Owners" page.
If it is determined that the customer's vehicle is included in the recall and repairs have already been completed at the customer's expense, the recall notification will direct customers on how to submit original receipts for reimbursement.

Re: TIPM Recall

Doesn't sound like they are fixing the root cause, just bypassing the tipm.

Re: TIPM Recall

My wife drives a 2011 GC Overland. The odometer just turned 51K. It had been having hard start issues for the past 3 weeks. I did a little studying and discovered the TIPM fuel pump relay issues. The link below has a PDF that shows what kits to buy at the dealer and how to install them.

fuelpumprelay


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.

Re: TIPM Recall

How did you manage to get your hands on the Star Case? My dealership said each and every one of them would be fired if they showed it to me?!

Regardless... thanks! Now I definitely feel comfortable doing this myself.

So this is hopefully what they will do at dealer tomorrow ?

Re: TIPM Recall

Chrysler has just made available to their dealer network a new TIPM Kit to address this issue;

The original TIPM part # 68089321AC which superceeded to an AD,AE,AF,AG part # are all no longer available.

A new Totally Integrated Power Module Kit (TIMP Kit) Mopar part # 68244870AA is about to hit the parts pipeline. MSRP for this new TIPM Kit is $869.00/Dealer Cost $646.00

Re: TIPM Recall

Something is draining my battery when it sits overnight. Sometimes it will start right up and others I need to use the key rather than start button. This is causing issues with starting that sounds like this same issue talked about here. A brand new Die Hard AGM makes no difference and will also draw down over days. Using a trickle charger to hold charge up overnight is a temporary fix while I wait for the recall.

Is this the same issue? How much current draw is caused by the fuel pump not shutting off? Am I reading the Star Case right that they have had this fix for over a year? Thanks Chrysler!

Drop to a knee by your drivers side rear tire. If you hear a hum.. that's your battery draw culprit. Not sure I'd wait for the recall, who knows when that will come. By then your fuel pump and starter might be feeling the effects.

I'd like to see someone throw up photos of how the wires from the relay are connected at the TIPM. I'm not sure of some of the language in the Star Case (ie: cavity the wire, Cut circuit K31 engine fuel pump control, etc) and could use the reassurance when attempting this.

Apparently the dealer is doing the relay bypass on Wednesday. I'll post photos after so we can create a proper DIY.
