I have a 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee with less than 35,000 miles on it. Last week my car decided not to start. The first (trusted) mechanic was 90% sure it was the TIPM but wanted me to take it to the dealership since it was such a new car and they weren't 100% sure. The dealership told me today that it's not the TIPM but a problem with the Fuel Pump Relay Circuit which I think they said communicates with the TIPM. There is a wiring repair kit that has come out to fix this and parts and labor will cost around $340.00.

Has anyone else had this issue and gone with the the wiring repair kit option? I know that if a recall comes out that it will be covered. Just wanted to see if anyone else is experiencing the same problem and given this solution.

    Had the same issue on my 2011 JGC Laredo about a month ago (and out of warranty)...told it was the Fuel Pump Relay Circuit. Dealer advised there was a workaround rather than replacing the whole motherboard (Roughly $1000 cost) by using a add on circuit...ended up being a $400 repair bill.

    Car would start to turnover and then stop and then also "cough" a few times...not a consistent problem at first, but rapidly became an issue.
