So I have a 2013 jeep GC Laredo and I'm dealing with the fuel pump relay problem. It had the recall done. I searched and searched and found you can replace it with a newer relay because this one might be bad. Found the exact one from eBay and put it on. Still has long crank. So searched again and found someone found a relay from AutoZone and replaced it still has a long crank. Doesn't do it every time but still does it. What is could it be if not that? Or what other things should I look at or diagnos to see if I can fix it?

Dealing with the same thing on daughter's 2014 Grand Cherokee; I put in the relay bypass cable by Vertical Solutions and no help.....I'll be looking at a crankshaft sensor and possibly a fuel pump next. I hate throwing parts at a problem but the dealer's have been zero help (been to two) and the computers aren't setting error codes..

I thought about reversing what the dealer did and buying that companies bypass modules they sell but I haven't. My problem has go to be either the actual fuel pump or something else. I read one trick I can do which works is to press the start button twice without pressing the brake and let it cycle on then press brake which works every time and doesn't crank long.

I’ve replaced the fuel relay too. Unfortunately now I just press the button twice and then brake / start. I also ran some fuel system cleaner hoping that helps.
