I have a 2012 Dodge Durango Citadel w the big Hemi engine.

Customer Question
Hi Chris. I have...

Hi Chris. I have a 2012 Dodge Durango Citadel w the big Hemi engine. Other than this electrical issue, I love this rig and it’s my 2nd! I’ve had it 16 mos. I have had some of the issues reported online about cranking over, but not wanting to start occasionally....maybe 5 times in 16 mos. I was told my remote fob battery was weak, have replaced 4 times and each time problem would go away for a few months. Last night it did it again. Gave up, came back this morning and it fired right up....but all the sensors are now showing warnings! Reset twice, took to my brother’s (non-Dodge) dealership. They said bad battery. Replaced battery, reset all sensors 2-3 times and still they are all showing as warnings! Vehicle runs just fine...engine fan runs Continuously eventhough its 30 degrees here in Portland! Haven’t spoken with dealership yet. All the online complaints about similar issues are pre 2016... Thoughts??

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the battery? And have you tested it with a voltmeter?

It was original batter, but I just spent $200 replacing it today and still same issues...

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Durango yourself? What have you tried so far?

Did you not read my message? I took it to my brother’s dealership where I bought the car. Gladstone Mitsubishi

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of ...

Historically yes. My most recent issue today, however, are all the warning lights that are now illuminated on the dash and won’t go away, yet the vehicle and al vitals are all showing fine....
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 6 months ago

Well I am a shop foreman at a Dodge dealer and we have seen issues like this being caused by the TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Module) The TIPM is the under hood fuse box and contains electronic circuits and relays for many of the vehicle's electronics including the fuel pump which can and will cause a crank and no start.

Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 6 months ago

We have found that replacing the TIPM fixes this issue, and I am pretty confident it will.

What is the ballpark cost of a TIPM replacement?
Dodge Mechanic: Chris, Shop Foreman replied 6 months ago

About $800.00 parts and labor. Maybe less if you can find a remanufactured one.

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
