Owners Call Totally Integrated Power Module “Totally Insane”

Owners of vehicles equipped with the Totally Integrated Power Module report that their dash lights flicker, their horns blare and their gauges go haywire. Clarence Ditlow, late director of Center for Auto Safety, said that some refer to the TIPM as the “Totally Insane Power Module.”

Ditlow had received 250 complaints about problems facing the TIPM – problems that could affect 5 million Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep SUVs and cars.

Nic Cooper owns a 2011 Dodge Durango equipped with a TIPM. He told WSB-TV reporter Jim Strickland that he would have to coax the car to start five times a day. After taking the advice of a car dealer, he popped off the push-button start button and used the key to start the ignition. He said the fix only somewhat helped the problem.

Cooper had an electronic fuel control installed to bypass the TIPM.

He said that it was a “patch” at best, as it did not completely fix the problem.
