2012 Grand Cherokee starting problem
 
For the last month my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee x package wont srart from the first attempt. This happens once or twice per week. The Jeep attempts to start but fails. The longest it took me to start it was 6 attempts. I ruled out the key fob as the Jeep recognizes the key. Anyone experience similar problems?

There are no codes. After doing some research It looks like the tpim needs to be replaced. Thankfully dealer said even if I go over 36000 miles warranty will cover it since problem started at 35000

I recently purchased my 2012 Grand Cherokee. It is having the same problem. Just does not want to start. I've been to the dealer twice. They keep saying they don't find anything wrong. After some internet research, I am finding this is a common problem and it could be an issue with the tipm. Chrysler, apparently, is trying to keep this quiet. There are other very serious issues as well. Most importantly, the engine stopping while driving. I'm very nervous.:(

There is a recall from Chrysler on the TIPM, maybe your is included in this recall. Stay after your dealer and let them know your aware of this issue. They should be able to replicate the non-starting problem and make the necessary repair.

Thank you. I did a great deal of research yesterday, and I found a great deal of information that scares me and makes me sad and angry. How did Chrysler screw up their JEEP?!!! THE JEEP? I am armed with the knowledge I now have and will use it to find the best solution to this problem. I bought a beautiful vehicle and I was so proud. I can't even describe how I am feeling right now. :confused: Thanks for your post. Means a lot.
