Summary of Complaint

OCTOBER 8,2020 I WAS DRIVING STRAIGHT DOWN HILL ON A CITY STREET IN PUYALLUP, WA WHEN THE CAR COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN WITHOUT WARNING. I HAD NO STEERING, BRAKES, OR ANYWAY TO CONTROL THE VEHICLE. I MANAGED TO COAST INTO A NEARBY LOWES HARDWARE PARKING LOT AND RAN INTO A BARRIER IN ORDER TO STOP. I WAS LUCKY THERE WERE NO PEOPLE OR OTHER CARS IN MY PATH OF TRAVEL WHEN I ENTERED AS I WAS UNABLE TO STOP. I CALLED MY INSURER, GEICI, AND ARRANGED FOR THE VEHICLE TO BE TOWED. TOWING WAS PERFORMED BY ENGELS TOWING , PUYALLUP, WA (253) 845-0034. CHECKING ONLINE I DISCOVERED THAT THIS IS A KNOWN PROBLEM WITH THE FUEL PUMP AND NO RECALL HAS BEEN ISSUED. I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE. I, MY FAMILY, OR OTHERS COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOULY INJURED OR KILLED.

Summary of Complaint

WHEN YOU PUT THE KEY IN IT IT JUST CRANKS AND CRANKS AND CRANKS BUT NEVER STARTS. WHEN IT FIRST STARTED IT WAS JUST OCCASIONALLY BUT NOW IT WONT START AT ALL SO IT JUST SITS IN THE DRIVEWAY. I'M A GRANDMOTHER RAISING HER GRANDCHILDREN BE NICE TO HAVE A VEHICLE TO TAKE THE BABIES TO THEIR APPTS. BUT OBVIOUSLY DODGE DOESN'T CARE BECAUSE THEY ARE AWARE OF THIS PROBLEM AND DONT WANT TO MAKE THE PART AVAILABLE TO US TO FIX IT SO WE SPEND THE MONEY FOR THESE VEHICLE TO SET IN OUR DRIVEWAYS. I PURCHASED THE VAN ON A FRIDAY AND WITHIN A WEEK IT STARTED HIT AND MISS STARTING AND BY THE SECOND WEEK IN IS NOW PARKED IN MY DRIVEWAY. THIS IS CRAZY DODGE YOU NEED TO MAKE THIS RIGHT OR AT LEAST MAKE THE PART AVAILABLE FOR US TO PURCHASE SO WE CAN FIX OUR VEHICLES

Summary of Complaint

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.

VIN: 2D4RN5DG9BR****

Summary of Complaint

FOR 1 MONTH THE VEHICLE WAS DIFFICULT TO START. IT WOULD CRANK JUST FINE, BUT THE ENGINE WOULD NOT 'IGNITE' (ESPECIALLY WHEN COLD.) THE VEHICLE WOULD FINALLY START AFTER 5-10 LONG ATTEMPTS (TURNING THE ENGINE OVER AND OVER AND THEN TURNING THE KEY TO THE OFF POSITION BEFORE TRYING AGAIN.) THIS DIFFICULT STARTUP ISSUE LASTED FOR 4 WEEKS. AT THAT POINT THE VEHICLE BEGAN TO STALL AFTER RUNNING FOR 10 - 20 MINUTES (SOMETIMES WHILE DRIVING.) FINALLY, AFTER PARKING THE VEHICLE ONE EVENING, THE FUEL PUMP CONTINUED TO RUN AFTER THE ENGINE WAS SHUT OFF AND THE KEY WAS REMOVED. IT WASN'T NOTICED RIGHT AWAY, SO BY MORNING THE BATTERY WAS COMPLETELY DEAD. ALL MY RESEARCH INDICATED THE FUEL RELAY IS FAULTY. BUT THE RELAY IS BUILT INTO THE TIPM AND THERE IS NO EASY FIX. THIS SEEMS TO BE HAPPENING ON ALL 2011 CHRYSLER/DODGE VEHICLES AND THERE IS EVEN A RECALL ON THE DODGE DURANGO FOR THE ISSUE. THIS FAULTY TIPM NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AND REPLACED. MY LOCAL DEALERSHIP HAS SUGGESTED THAT I GET THE RELAY 'FIXED" USING THE FIX MENTIONED IN THE DURANGO RECALL. THE SERVICE ADVISER SUGGESTED IT WOULD BE AROUND $400 (NO GUARANTEE) AND THAT IT WOULD BE REIMBURSED IF THE RECALL WAS EXTENDED TO MY MAKE OF VEHICLE AT SOME POINT IN THE FUTURE. I'M WORRIED THAT THEY ARE GOING TO MAKE IT WORSE AND WRECK THE TIPM, WHICH IS A PART THAT COSTS OVER $1000 (AND HARD TO FIND.) I HOPE TO UPDATE THIS COMPLAINT AFTER THE VEHICLE IS 'FIXED.' *JS
