I don't know if 2011 is same issue as my 1999. On at least the 1999 thru mid 2000's there is a crank position sensor on bottom of transmission, when it goes bad it will not send a signal that lets vehicle start, and it will only crank. It was very hard to reach and I took it to a good NON DEALER shop and let them do the work, in 2009 was about $200 including labor. Don't know if 2011 has this, but when I google 2011 jeep grand Cherokee crankshaft position sensor, it comes up as there is one, don't know if it is still in a hard to get at location.

2011 Jeep GC Limited with 48,600 miles won't start. Out of Jeep warranty and now under the Zurich 84 months/100,000 mile bumper to bumper I purchased at closing with dealer. I'm told I need a new TIPM and will cost $1,300; Zurich "preferred coverage" states they cover the "electronic ignition system" but they tell me they won't cover the brain that powers the system. I am still fighting with them and filing small claims court papers in Camden County, NJ.
TIPM won't come in until August 22nd so they approved a rental car. At Enterprise Rental for shits and giggles I said hey, you got a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee I could have and he said yes except it is back at the same Cherry Hill Triplex Service department because it won't start. What is going on here, everyone please post your no start problems, I believe there is a cover up going on and Chrysler needs to man up and do the right thing for us.

2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited with 48,600 miles and same exact problem! Once it started it would go all day with many start stops but once it sat for several hours i was stuck, no start without numerous 5-8 push button start/stop episodes before she turned over, this method cost me all 4 of my AAA tows / battery truck service calls. Towed to dealer and told it needs a new Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) and cost estimate is $1,300. I bought the "preferred coverage" extended 84 months/ 100,000 mile extended service contract from Zurich which was offered by the dealer for $2,214.00 extra. They state they cover the "electronic ignition system" but they won't cover the $1,300.00 TIPM. That's another fight which is also being posted online with Edmunds.com; carcomplaints.com; ripoffreport.com and facebook.
TIPM is on back order until August 22, 2013 so Chrylser approved a rental car. At Enterprise Rental I asked If they had a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee I could have and to my surprise they said Yes except it was back at the same dealership; Cherry Hill Triplex because it won't start! Same exact problem, what is going on here? Search the internet and I find too many same related issues, Chrysler must know they have a problem on their hands and are not doing the right thing by us loyal owners, this is my 5th Grand Cherokee and I always loved them, I just never owned them this long, I was lusting after the 2014 SRT with that Launch button but now I'm rethinking everything. This story is still live and I will continue to update it, Please everyone post your no start problems, there could be something much more worse than we know. jmelvilletristatehvac.com

Having the same issue now. 2011 Grand Laredo. Roughly 58,000 miles on it, purchased from Franklin Sussex Auto mall with about 19,000 miles on it. The issue started with all my remotes not working properly, wont open or lock the truck, had to get up close and press the button on the door handle. In the past month, i would start the truck, put it in reverse and it would immediately turn off, all power gone. This has happened a couple of times. Most recently, among this, im having the same "crank" issue. Start the truck, sounds like its idling in the "ignition" stage but wont actually kick over for me. Scary stuff, god forbid something like this happens while im on the highway. Going to call the dealer and see whats up.

I'm having the same problem, along with the fuel pump still running after vechiele is turned off. I have 67,000 miles and no warrenty.. Going to mechanic Monday to see if its just the crank position sensor... Either way no help from Chrysler... All they want is $$$$.
#1080 of 1241 Jeep Cherokee crank- TIPM failure- part released today
Aug 13, 2013 (8:22 am)
Seems like everyone is having the same issue but no surprise that Jeep will not issue any sort of recall! The problem is the Totally Integrated Power Module- engine won't start, just cranks and cranks. Mine finally turned off for good and has been sitting at the Jeep Dealership for almost 3 weeks b/c the part has been backordered!!!!!!!!!!!! Again, same problem everyone is having and NO ONE CAN FIX without the correct replacement part from JEEP/CHRYSLER. Get it together guys- there are 2000 TIPM being released TODAY. Good luck getting your hands on one- another disappointment Jeep.

I am having the same problem that everyone else is. I bought my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee used. It has 44,863 miles on it. My problem, which is similar to what others have described, started last week. I went to AutoZone, to my regular mechanic, a mechanic who specializes in electrical work and Sears. Because the Check Engine light did not turn on, I was told that there was no way to check it. We replaced the battery at Sears and things were okay; however, the problem started up again. I, too, am out of warranty and the one that I just got will not kick in until September 15th.

After reading the posts and living through this experience, I called Jeep and was given the royal send-off. The woman who took my call was rude and extremely dismissive. I told her that many folks have reported this problem not only this forum, but on others. She said that the same person could write different posts. I told her that she was dismissive. She said that I needed to have it diagnosed, even though I told her verbatim what I had written here. She said that the problem does not warrant a recall. I told her that I cannot afford to be without a vehicle. I then asked to speak to a supervisor and she told me that the person would be telling me the same thing.

Our 2011 GC Overland 5.7 is having the same issue. Does this start out as a rough idle problem then turns into an occasional "will not start". The dealer ordered the TIPM and said they did not know when the part would come. This is a joke - I just waited 3 weeks for a water pump earlier this year. Somehow everyone at Chrysler thinks this is OK...

That's how mine started. There was an occasional idle issue which turned into a crank issue when trying to start the vehicle but I could at least get it going after a few tries or using the remote start. I took it in 2 weeks ago and when they said the TIPM was on backorder, I tried to pick up my Jeep only to be told it was no longer running AT ALL forcing me to leave it with Jeep and wait for the part. Still waiting... It was supposed to ship on Tuesday but now I am getting the run around from the Jeep service dept. I have no idea when/if my Jeep will run again.....
