TIPM FAILURE. CAR WILL TURN OVER AND NOT START. VEHICLE DIED WHILE TRAVELING DOWN THE ROAD AND ALMOST CAUSED AN ACCIDENT.
Problem consistently cranking car. Dealership diagnosed need for new TIPM system. This car is only 5 years old! We drove it because our monthly payment is $260!! $1340 to repair a fuse box is insanely expensive. Especially for a one income family of 5.
The active head restraint (headrest) on the driver side of my van activated for no reason. The vehicle has never been in a crash and has 110000 miles. I have not been able to reset the headrest. I took it to the dealership today and they said it would cost $759 to replace. After reading all the complaints about headrest issues in Town and Country minivans, and the recall of over 800000 vehicles in 2013 for the exact same problem http://www.autonews.com/article/20130703/OEM11/130709941/chrysler-recalls-840000-vehicles-mostly-in-u.s.-for-headrests, I am convinced that the Chrysler Town and Country minivans should have been included in the recall. This is a major safety issue. What if the headrest would have activated while I was driving? Please look into this. Thank you.
My vehicle loses all power randomly while driving it. The entire instrumental panel goes black & the engine stops dead. I am scared of this vehicle! I am afraid it is going to do this on the freeway & me & my children will die.
The dealerships are unable to diagnose the problem, nor replicate it. The newest claim is the vehicle\'s ignition is faulty & needs replaced – which is not under warranty. The prior \"solution\" was a screw was loose on the battery terminal & I paid $200 to get that \"fix\". Otherwise I\'ve been sent home & the vehicle inevitably fails.
It also has random problems starting. At it\'s worst, it has taken 8 tries to restart the vehicle.
It also randomly shuts itself off after putting the vehicle in park.
Several times, it has randomly powered off & restarted itself while driving.
The problems are becoming more numerous over the last year after I purchased the vehicle used.
I cannot afford to pay out of pocket for band aid fixes. I understand from online reading, the TIPM is a known failed part of the vehicle model year. However, not one dealership has looked into it. And Chrysler has not offered any information.
Dash lights going on and off when brights are on. Chimes sounding. Vehicle has 44, 000 miles on it. Repair tech says TIPM has to be replaced at $1300. At 33,000 miles alternator had to be replaced for similar symptoms.
Dash lights will illuminate which include, electrical light, batter light, gas light, check engine light, TC light, and ABS light as well as wipers will run even though wipers are off.
The TIPM fuel pump relay went bad just like the Durango and Jeep recall. Same part. Dealership refused to sell me the recall kit
CBWPR091AA because my vehicle has not been recalled. Bought the part online and fixed it myself. Absolutely ridiculous for Chrysler to deny parts or recall.
TIPM seems faulty. Car just started last month not starting leaving my wife stranded.
engine stalls and shuts off while driving
Van completely shut down while driving with no advance notice. Could not even shift into neutral to push it off the road. The problem is the alternator. Dealer cannot get part in right now due to overwhelming problems. Some Chrysler models have a recall for alternator, however the 2013 Town and Country does not yet there is clearly a problem if they are out of stock due to so many problems. My van is 2 1/2 years old with less than 50,000 miles on it.
multiple times windshield wipers began going and warning lights flashed inside the car and windows went down with out being powered and doors open and shut by themselves. Three times the car engine spontaneously shut down while driving losing power steering and brakes. Had it to multiple dealers – no code on the computer system so no one would do anything to fix it. frequent conversations with customer service chrysler… nothing they can do. We’ve been instructed by chrysler to keel a journal every time OUR CAR SHUTS DOWN WHILE DRIVING… that’s their solution. Even with this journal (assuming my family continues to survive the shut downs where we lose control of the brakes and steering while moving down the road) if there is no code Chrysler will have no solution. They will not speak to us about tye hundreds of thousands of vehicles exactly like ours with the exact same problems that now have a recall because ours does not match the model year.
