Thanks for that website. I was looking at the NHTSB. They have a contact section, but not really a complaint.

Trust me when I say a class action lawsuit is in the works. Until then, make as much noise as you can!

#1116 of 1240 Shift Locks and wont start
Aug 30, 2013 (12:03 am)
I have a '97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Loredo.
After driving for a while and stopping, the car wont re-start and the shift assembly freezes. I can't even push in the shift button to get her into neutral. After 15 min's to an hour the shift frees up.
I have already spent a considerable amount of money on Throttle body service, Neutral safety switch, various electrical work...
I am now told it needs a new shift assembly
Has anyone else experienced this problem and what is the correct solution?

I have the same issue with my 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8. Rough Idle, when cold (not run for over 4-5 hours) cranks and cranks but wont start. Can only get to start with remote start on key. Once started will start every time until it is off for extended period (4-5hrs).
39k miles so out of warranty.
Going in next week Wed morning appointment to jeep service. Dropping off Tuesday night so it is cold in morning when they try to start it.
In addition I have had a transmission shudder since the car was purchased. They have tried the TSB update but that just isolated this shudder to 25-30mph when accelerating. IN addition the shudder is noticeable when maintaining constant speed when cruising up slight incline such as when in cruise control.
ALSO... have lag issues when accelerating from a start, and now it sounds like engine is getting bogged down and makes a loud resonance sound often.
Please keep me posted on the cold start issue as I fear that I will need this TIPM that is on backorder. I fear more the dealership trying to replace other items that are not to blame.
#1119 of 1240 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee- TIPM replacement
Sep 02, 2013 (5:09 am)
As I read many posts, my 2011 Jeep Cherokee needs a new TIPM which the dealer cannot get. I had the privilege of paying a $110 for them to tell me the problem and let me know it is not covered under warranty. I called Jeep and after three customers service reps, jeep will pay half of the $1050 cost to replace.
I was able to still drive as the car would start most of the time with the remote start. Now the fuel pump is stuck on and I have to disconnect the battery to stop it even when the car is shut off. Called the dealer agin and they said there is nothing they can do until the new TIPM part comes in and they cannot tell me when? Very frustrated to pay over $30k for a car with a factory certified warranty and only drive it for 5 months and now I cannot drive it all all and the part to repair is not available?
Jeep needs to step up quickly and replace all the TIPM under a recall or warranty....this unacceptable......

bsoule I agree and I'm in the same boat. I sent the details to a class action law firm last week. After their first pass, the screeners said there is enough to send it over to a lawyer for review to make a decision on whether or not to take the case. I'll keep everyone posted.

I purchased my 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo just over 2 weeks ago. Thought my issue was my push start button but when the car wouldn't start even with the key I figured there was more to the story. I am very curious to see if Jeep will do anything about this as it seems to be a common issue. I can only hope my warranty covers it! Otherwise, I've wasted good money on the extended warranty!

The warranty will cover it, but Chrysler cannot get the part. This is a huge mess. Lots of people are affected. We may sue for a recall, but if the company that makes the TIPM goes out of business and Chrysler doesn't have the rights to make it themselves, I'm not sure how that would work. I guess they will have to replace our Jeeps with new ones. Either way, it's their problem, not ours. It's their responsibility to fix this and they are not doing it satisfactorily.

To all the TIPM patients out there waiting for their transplants we all need to file our complaints with the government. Chrysler won't do the right thing period. They will have to be forced into the recall and I think it gets worse than we know. The NHTSB has on file 5 complaints where the 2011 Jeep Grand Cherokee was in a serious accident and the air bags did not deploy. NHTSB Complaint ID Numbers: 10430083; 10445572;10463107;10482929;1056377
This TIPM thing is now a life, health and safety issue because the air bags are wired into the TIPM as well. There are thousands of us out there that have very high odds that our air bags won't deploy when we need them. This is the case where we now have to help the Government connect the dots, they must force a recall - keep up the pressure. I've been stuck since early July and now I won't have a TIPM until September 25th, this is absurd and revolting.
