Isn't this just another "fix" from the external fuel pump relay they installed a couple yrs back on another recall? I had the recall done on my 11 and 12 overland 5.7s and both had more issues after the recall. As of right now I'll avoid letting Jeep splice into my main harness again. Jeeps first fix was a hack job at best.

The relay they installed in my wife's Jeep failed a couple of years ago. Bench testing showed it occasionally wouldn't work. I ended up getting a replacement and swapping it out. While I was in there, I cleaned up the hack job they did in the PDC. Wasn't too hard to make it look semi-professional with some solder and heat shrink.

I wonder if this is just a relay swap or if they plan on hacking into the PDC again to splice in a different relay and harness.

I'm wanting a real solution and happy another recall is been issued. Had the relay recall done, 10 minutes after i picked up the Jeep from the dealer I had a stall occur while driving.

That was 2 years ago, I'm still living with the danger of a stall while turning in front of traffic. I can live with the stall on start, happens weekly to me.

I've read all the "so called" fixes, spark plugs, another relay, motion sensors, low tire pressure all bogus for my situation

I definitely agree with you jeep needs to fix this but not with a hack job of a solution. I had the same stalling issues. Long story short a win module and fobs took care of it. 5k miles and no stalls on my 12 ovlernad 5.7. My fob batteries died monthly

What is a win module?

Thanks

This is bogus. Last I checked we were still dealing with this all the way up to the 2018 models at least......

Wasn't this tossed out back then as well? Why are they jist now getting to this issue, for those model years (the one that were tossed out by our wonderful saftey overseeres)

Seriously, a proper fix would be a new TIPM with the relay located up top where it should have been i the first place. Pretty sire that's a few major model refreshed away thougj.......
