TIPM - airbags

So I bought my '12 Durango used this summer. I put 5,000mi on it, and the TIPM died at 52k. I have already had it repaired. While I was googling around I had bumped into this lawyer site looking for people that had airbag failures. Faulty TIPM Auto Accidents and Airbags not Deploying Law Offices of David Azizi . Is this anything to worry about? Do the airbags work on a relay like the fuel relay? Just being paranoid and wondering here. It is primarily the wife's car. Any additional info related to airbag failures or other TIPM issues would be awesome. Thanks!

Re: TIPM - airbags

There is a recall coming for the TIPM, but it may have been for the '11 models? I'd look into it, and complain to your dealer. Did you have to pay out-of-pocket? Most used cars come with some sort of warranty (3--12 months).

Re: TIPM - airbags

I found a place to repair it for $269- they replace the fuel relays and other relays as well that are the same on the TIPM. But they told me that there are other parts by the same manufacturer on the board that "might" fail.

Currently, the recall is for some 2011 models, even though the parts are the same in both the 2011 & 2012 TIPMs. I guess I'm wondering if other parts on it will fail. I mean, I use the fuel relays- but I've never used the airbags before! I kinda wonder if the airbag relay will fail, etc...

Re: TIPM - airbags

So you didn't have your whole TIPM replaced, but only a few relays? You could have done that in 1 min, and < $50
