  3. Barbara says:

    I owned a 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee and the power module stopped working twice. My wipers would not shut off, I had no blinkers or display so I did not know how fast I was going. Jeep dealership refused to tell me what the issue was, just repaired it. The only reason they worked on the car the second time at no charge was because I had my dying husband with me. Because of the issue with the module, my husband (dying of cancer) could not enjoy a short road trip for his last birthday before the cancer stopped him from being ambulatory.

    ADMIN – Hi Barbara,

    Sorry to hear.

  5. Rebecca Holman says:

    I owned then sold my Jeep cherokee. So does this action pertain to me or not..?

    ADMIN – Hi Rebecca,

    This settlement applies to you if your Jeep Cherokee was from the affected year and you made the repairs and have receipts for said repairs.

    If you incurred repair or rental car expenses related to a failed TIPM you may be eligible for reimbursements. You can make a reimbursement claim for past repair expenses by sending your original receipts and/or other proof of payment to FCA US Customer Assistance.

  9. Halisha b says:

    I took my dodge Durango 2011 into the dealership due a recall on the alternator and to find out why the air bag light was on along with the check engine light. The dealership had me pay for a diagnostic check to tell me the censor is bad regarding the air bag and the oil censor is bad as well. The gentlemen went on to tell me that the oil censor light is an internal failure with no reason why it malfunctioned, it just did however I would have to assume responsibility for the work that’s needed. A week later the wheel traction censor came on and I was told its a computer issue. Mind you the car just turn 5 years and all these things are going wrong at once. Two years into me owning the car it just cut off on me and would not start up again, the car needed to be serviced and again it was a censor that caused the car to shut down. The car has a nice look but all the problem just aren’t worth the headache.Please reply what am I to do?

    ADMIN – Hi Alisha,

    You file a claim.

  15. Tameka Jackson says:

    I purchased a 2013 Dodge Durango in June of 2013. I started having problems qith the first couple of weeks. I have a couple lights that kept coming on . I looked in my owners manual and tried to follow the instructions listed. I took vehicle to dealership and they said it had many issues. They kept my vehicle for a month and I had a rental. I calles the BBB and filed a claim because the dealership said that they find anything wrong with the vehicle. So the BBB looked into and they dealership told them that my car have several issues. Long story short this waa the underlying issue ans they didnt fix it so I ended up lwtting them repo my vehicle in January of 2014 and in Febuary this issue became know all over the US. Am I able to get this settlement they are currently trying to sue me?

    I own a 2011 Jeep grand cherokee. Does this suit include the heat/air temperature not working?

    ADMIN – Hi Zack,

    I am not certain if it is included. I would assume that the heat/air system is an electric component thus controlled by the TIPM but please call the admin to ask.

    2103 Durango..sudden acceleration from a parking spot at rest area causing collision into 2 other vehicles(brakes firmly appiled). Airbags did not deploy. Incident occurred on 5/13/2017.

    ADMIN – Hi Vivian,

    Not sure if the integrated power module triggers acceleration but it would be worth checking with the class action admin.

  29. Cody George says:

    I have a 2007 Chrysler Sebring with these same issues, my car actually stalled about two weeks ago and I hit a curb messing up my rim. I took it in to my mechanic and he said it is a faulty tipm, he said he has seen it before. I swear the is possessed, radio turns on and off, windows work then don’t work, right drivers side headlight flickers on and off so I finally unplug it. They should refund anyone with these issues.

    ADMIN – Hi Cody,

    If you feel you are a member of a wider class I would recommend for you to contact a class action attorney.

  30. Pamela Hughart says:

    we have a 2005 durango, that does the same thing, stalls out for no reason, going around a corner and stalls out, then runs ok, then out of the blue it will start up again, have done research and it is a fairly common problem for that year, but no recalls were ever issued.

  31. Deborah Whitney says:

    I have a 2011 Dodge Grand Caravan which had a faulty TIPM which cost me $1400 to replace. These were included in the original lawsuit but the settlement only covered the Jeeps and Durangos. Feeling pretty ripped off.

    On a jeep

  34. Michelle West says:

    I purchased a 2011 Dodge Durango on March 13, 2016, it was back at the dealership on March 17th for issues. Since purchasing the vehicle, countless mechanical issues have arisen including having the motor replaced at 40,000 miles. This truck has been in the shop more than in my driveway and currently at the dealership for repairs for the FCW indicator that throws the truck into 4th gear immediately, causing you to slow to a stop to cut the truck off and back on to regain control!

  35. Mary Teixeira says:

    I own a 2011 Dodge Durango purchased brand new. Had rapid alternator failure which fried the battery and computer. Dodge won’t cover the repairs (car is still being fixed) because it has over 80000 miles on it. Car has 84,000 miles. I did have to pay for a rental car. Is this repair covered in the lawsuit and if not, is there a lawsuit for the alternator recall? Thanks,

    ADMIN – Hi Mary,

    The deadline for this settlement has passed and I don’t know of any other recourse.

  36. Marlowe says:

I don’t know how I am ever going to recoop the money… will never buy a jeep again! thanks for your help

    ADMIN – Hi Marlowe,
