Recall 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fuel Pump Issues Recall 9/20/2014

Over 188,000 SUVís recalled by Chrysler due to fuel pump issues | Fox17

Here is the article in it's entirety
Over 188,000 SUVís recalled by Chrysler due to fuel pump issues
POSTED 12:30 PM, SEPTEMBER 20, 2014, BY CHRIS POTURALSKI

DETROIT, Mich.- Chrysler Group LLC has announced they are recalling over 188,000 SUVís in the United States because of a fuel pump issue that can lead to the vehicle stalling.

The 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the 2011 Dodge Durango with a 3.6-liter V6 or 5.7-liter V8 engine are being recalled due to a possible failure in the fuel pump. A contact spring can malfunction due to the heat caused by contact power, ambient temperature around the fuel pump relay, and battery voltage, which can result in a no start or a stall condition. Chrysler says ďIf the vehicle stalls, the vehicle maintains power and functionality for certain features, such as hazard indicators, seat belt pretensioners and airbags.Ē

The SUVís effected by this were manufactured from January of 2010 till July of 2011.

Chrysler will notify owners, and the dealers will replace the fuel pump relay with a new relay free of charge.

Dealers will start replacing the fuel pump October 24th.

Owners may contact Chrysler customer service at 1-800-853-1403 with any questions.

Have you heard if the people who got their TIPM replaced already will be getting a refund?

The article is dated yesterday. Sorry no idea what TPMI means I'm not mechanically inclined I just take it up garage and have them look if it's acting up!!

First it was brake booster recall now this !!

I have a bill for over $600 I will be looking to get my money back!! I guess start finding your receipts for refunds. Call the # listed in the article they will be able to help you. My dealer still has my car and this was in the news TODAY!!!

Re: Recall 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Fuel Pump Issues Recall 9/20/2014

I have this very issue, cranks but no start sometimes. My workaround which has got it running everytime has been to start the jeep from the key and enter the vehicle and with foot on brake hit the start switch like you would normally. Has not failed to start this way as of yet and gets me going when the no start problem shows up. So with that I really think it is the TIPM and not necessarily the fuel pump relay. I am making a fuse box jumper to hold me over til they finally decide to recall the TIPM. Here is a link for the jumper in case you have the same no start issue. 2011-2012 Dodge Durango/Jeep Grand Cherokee TIPM Repair/Bypass Solutions

Sounds exactly like my problem. Only problem is my 2011 JGCO was made before the dates noted in the recall. Mine was built in late 2010.
