Jeep Grand Cherokee TIPM Injury Information

tipmJeep Grand Cherokee SUVs have been having some TIPM problems lately. The TIPM is the Totally Integrated Power Module. The most notable issue with the Grand Cherokee’s TIPM is the fuel relay. When the TIPM’s fuel relay fails the SUV may stop receiving fuel. This can cause irritating problems such as the vehicle not starting, or the fuel pump staying on which drains the battery while you are not using the vehicle. At this point, we are monitoring the situation. We have heard rumors that failing TIPMs may cause more serious problems such as fuel starvation while the vehicle is in motion. Improper airbag deployment is another possibility that we are monitoring. Of course, any of these issues could lead to a serious injury, or worse.

If you have been injured in a car accident due to fuel related problems or improper airbag deployment it is important that you do not tamper with the vehicle and contact us as soon as possible. Your first call should be to the attorney. Insurance companies will also act quickly to get in touch with you but it will always be in your best interest to get a free consultation from the automobile accident experts at The Law Offices of Edward A. Smith. Call us any time at 916-921-6400 or visit our automobile accidents page.

Models affected:
We are currently monitoring issues with these vehicles:
2011 – 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee
2011 – 2012 Dodge Durango

Improper airbag deployment:
Many auto manufacturers insert wording in their manuals or on parts of the vehicle that may lead you to believe they are not responsible for improper airbag deployment, however they may still be held accountable for product liability anyways. Contact us for more information regarding this matter.

Recalls:
TIPM modules have been being recalled. For the latest recalls please visit your vehicle manufacturer’s website or NHTSA as this information may be outdated. As of October 31, 2014, the first TIPM recalls that we are seeing are:
September 2014: Chrysler announced the recall of nearly 200,000 2011 Durango vehicles, and nearly 200,000 Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs. To see if your vehicle is one of the models recalled please call Chrysler at 1-800-853-1403.
