Sometimes starts and barely runs

I have a 2010 T&C. Once in a while(may be twice a week or once in two months it starts but runs as though it is firing on only one cylinder. similar to when a vehicle may continue to run after the ignition is shut off. The engine will continue to run in this manner until I turn off the key but will not respond to pushing on the accelerator. I have checked the computer code right after this faulty start and the readout shows only dashes. The dealer has replaced the fobs and fob module under recall. The car did the same start failure before & after the recall. Sometimes up to 8 or 10 tries at required to get the car started. I have not herd that anyone else has had this problem. the dealer won't admit that anyone else has complained of this and they have no suggestion of a cure. Can anyone help me?
I'm not saying you need/should purchase your TIPM from where I bought mine, I'm just saying to verify that the internal relays are not the factory-installed pieces of garbage. If the relays haven't been replaced, there's a big chance the problem will resurface.
