TIPM issue on Durango
We have a 2012 Citadel (64k) with this problem. At first I thought my wife was out of gas even though the gauge was low it wasn't bottomed out, I figured a gallon or two of gas would do the trick. Ironically, it started on the first push of the button. After filling the tank, it did it the next day. Started to explore and found this forum.
The dealer told me to call Chrysler first. I did and started a case #. Then Chrysler told me to bring it to the dealer for a formal diagnostic. (Even though we all know what it is) I now have the truck in the dealer as I write this. Will let you know how it turns out.
It was very intermittent at first. Doing it only once in maybe 50 starts. Becoming progressively worse. It now does it almost every time on cold starts. It seems to start throughout the day once I get it started in the morning.
I've found that a blast of starting fluid in the air intake gives it enough to crank over then it will go after a try or two. And I have only had it stall once on idle.
I am afraid that if I pay the dealer the $1000 to replace the TIPM and Chrysler eventually puts out a recall for the external fuel pump relay, which is a much less expensive alternative, I will never recover the difference.
One more thing, the deal doesn't call it a T-I-P-M, they call it a "tippem". Just found it funny even though the situation isn't.
Maybe time to go back to Ford.
