ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

5/4/2015 - STERLING, VA
A FEW THINGS HAVE HAPPENED ALL POINTING TOWARDS A FAILED/FAILING TIPM MODULE. THE FIRST THING WE NOTICED WAS THE CAR WOULD STALL WHILE SITTING STILL IN RUSH HOUR/BUMPER TO BUMPER TRAFFIC. THEN IN EARLY 2014 THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS STARTED TURNING OFF DURING SNOW/RAIN STORMS ALMOST CAUSING ACCIDENTS A FEW TIMES THAT WE REPLACED THE WIPERS, WIPER SWITCH AND WIPER MOTOR AND STILL HAVE THE ISSUE RANDOMLY. LAST WEEK THE HORN STARTED TO RANDOMLY GO OFF TO THE POINT THAT I WAS DRIVING TO WORK TODAY AND IT WENT OFF AND DID NOT STOP. SAW THE NHTSA INVESTIGATION INTO CHRYSLERS TIPM'S SO WANTED TO PUT SOMETHING IN BECAUSE I DO NOT SEE THE 2008 AVENGER IN THE LISTS ONLINE AND THIS IS MORE THAN LIKELY A FAILING/FAILED. TIPM. DEALERSHIPS WANT $800-1000 FOR THE REPLACEMENT, ROCKAUTO,COM HAS IT FOR $260 ($200 CORE CHARGE) $460 TOTAL TO GET THE REPLACEMENT PART THEN RETURN THE CORE. I HAVE A FRIEND WITH 2006 DODGE 3500 DIESEL THAT HE HAD TO REPLACE HIS TIPM RECENTLY AND GOT ONE FROM ROCKAUTO.COM AS WELL AND RECOMMENDED THEM AS THE GO TO PLACE GIVEN CHRYSLER'S INABILITY TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY TO NOTIFY THEIR CAR OWNERS OF THE POTENTIAL RISK/HAZARD. I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF MY AVENGER AND BOUGHT IT NEW OCTOBER 2007.

I WENT TO PUT MY CAR IN PARK AND WHEN I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE THE CAR CONTINUED FORWARD. I LOOKED TO SEE IF I DIDN'T PUT THE CAR IN PARK FULLY AND THE GEAR SHIFT IS IN PARK HOWEVER, THE GEAR INDICATOR SAYS THE CAR IS STILL IN DRIVE.

VISIBILITY/WIPER

4/23/2015 - TAMARAC, FL
MY ISSUE IS THE WINDSHIELD WIPERS STOP WORKING OR WORK INTERMITTENTLY, WHICH IS A HUGE PROBLEM WHEN IT IS RAINING. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS. WHEN WE STARTED LOOKING UP THE ISSUE ONLINE WE NOTICED A LOT OF OTHER PEOPLE HAVING THE SAME ISSUE AMONG OTHER ISSUES. WE FIRST TRIED TO REPLACE THE SWITCH - STILL HAD THE PROBLEM, THEN THE WIPER MOTOR - STILL HAD THE PROBLEM. NOW WE ARE TOLD BY THE DODGE DEALERSHIP THAT IT PROB. IS A WIRING ISSUE OR THE TOTAL INTEGRATED FUSE BOX THING. THIS IS $1000 AT LEAST AND HAS TO BE DONE BY THE DEALER BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE PROGRAMMED. I FEEL THIS SHOULD BE A RECALL ON CHRYSLERS PART SINCE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE HAVING THIS ISSUE AND IT IS A HUGE SAFETY ISSUE.
