2/1/2017 - FAYETTEVILLE, NC
I'VE HAD MY VAN SINCE OCTOBER 2016, 60000 MILES ON ODOMETER AT TIME OF PURCHASE. JANUARY 29 AND FEBRUARY 1, 2017 THE CAR HAS COMPLETELY SHUT OFF WHILE DRIVING. ON JANUARY 29, I WAS ON THE HIGHWAY DOING 65 MPH. FEB 1, I WAS LEAVING MY JOB'S PARKING LOT AND LATER A GROCERY STORE PARKING LOT. THE LIGHTS FLICKERED EACH TIME AND THE VAN THEN 'DIED'. IT RESTARTED WHEN I TRIED.

WE HAVE HAD OUR VAN NOW FOR ALMOST 2 YEARS WITH NO PROBLEMS. IN MID-AUGUST, MY WIFE WAS TAKING MY DAUGHTER TO MARCHING BAND PRACTICE AT 5 AM. SHE TOLD ME THAT AS SHE WAS GOING THROUGH AN INTERSECTION, IT JUST STALLED ON HER. THANKFULLY, IT WAS ONLY 5 AM AND NOT DURING RUSH HOUR. BEING THE SKEPTICAL GUY I AM, I THOUGH MAYBE SHE HAD HIT THE KEY SOMEHOW AND SHUT IT DOWN. THEN IT HAPPENED TO ME AND I WAS NEARLY REAR-ENDED. I CHECKED IT OUT AND DIDN'T FIND ANYTHING, BUT FROM THAT DAY FORTH, IT BECAME HARD TO START AT RANDOM TIMES. SOMETIMES WHEN WE TURN THE KEY, THE IGNITION WILL CRANK, BUT THE ENGINE WON'T START AND WE'LL HAVE TO TURN THE KEY OFF TO MAKE IT STOP TURNING OVER. OTHER TIMES, IT WILL ATTEMPT TO START, OR EVEN START, THEN IMMEDIATELY STALL. EVENTUALLY, AND SOMETIMES AFTER 8-10 ATTEMPTS, IT WILL START AND RUN UNTIL THE NEXT TIME WE PARK IT. EVER SINCE I CHECKED IT OUT, I HAVE NOTICED THAT, AT TIMES, YOU CAN'T HEAR THE HUM OF THE FUEL PUMP WHEN YOU TURN THE KEY, WHILE OTHER TIMES IT DOESN'T SEEM TO STOP MAKING NOISE. JUST THIS MORNING, I LEFT TO GO TO WORK, ONLY TO FIND THAT THE VAN WON'T START. APPARENTLY, ONE OF THE OTHER OBVIOUS SIGNS OF A BAD TIPM IS THE OCCASIONAL DEAD BATTERY....CAUSED BY A FUEL PUMP THAT THE TIPM FUEL RELAY FAILS TO SHUT OFF.AT THIS POINT, MY VAN HAS BEEN SITTING SINCE OCTOBER OF 2016, AS WE CANNOT AFFORD THE HIGH REPAIR COST. THE REPAIR ESTIMATE THAT I WAS QUOTED FOR THE TIPM WILL COST AROUND $1100. HAD THIS BEEN TAKEN CARE OF BY CHRYSLER, I MAY HAVE SAVED WHAT I SPENT ON BATTERIES AND THE ALTERNATOR.

POWER TRAIN

I HAD COMPLAINTS OF TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS SINCE I BOUGHT THE VAN. IT HAS NO POWER GOING IN REVERSE, AND IT WOULD HARD SHIFT FROM A STOP. I TOOK IT IN TWICE BEFORE THE CLUTCH BROKE. I HAD TO HAVE THE TRANSMISSION REBUILT BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT THEY SUGGESTED. YOU NEED TO LOOK INTO TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS IN THIS VAN.

THE VEHICLE DOES NOT START INTERMEDIATELY AND HAS BEEN DIAGNOSED AS A PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP RELAY EMBEDDED IN THE TIPM THAT CANNOT BE ACCESSED OR REPAIRED BY NORMAL MEANS. THIS DEFECT CAN CAUSE THE VEHICLE TO SHUT DOWN WITHOUT WARNING CAUSING A GREAT SAFETY PROBLEM. THIS SAME PROBLEM WAS EXPERIENCED BY THE DODGE DURANGO AND OTHER CHRYSLER VEHICLES AND A RECALL WAS ISSUED TO FIX THIS PROBLEM.
