My Jeep had the fuel pump relay changed to an external type as part of previous recall NHTSA 15v-115. I'm not sure of the date as it was done prior to us buying the vehicle. The new external relay started to fail in July 2017. In heat soaked conditions, the relay would fail to activate. The only time this occurred was during engine start while being stationary in a parking lot. The engine would start then stall within five seconds. I replaced the relay and tested the old one. When the old relay is warm, I verified that it doesn't activate 100% of the time. The relay part number is g8jn-1c6t-f-r-dc12. We never had a failure when the vehicle was in motion. I'm submitting this complaint so NHTSA has awareness of the relay that was installed. It is not a robust relay which may have other failure modes.

These problems are random. First alrm has gone off twice, the day light running lights don't always come on. The car does not always recognize the key. The dom elight on the drivers side flickers some times. This mourning the clock on the radio showed an invalid time, swithed radio off, and back on, it went to the correct time. Took to machanic designated by the dealer we bought this from 2 weeks ago and he found no issues. The milage is 92000. I will change the battery out this week, and see if that corrects these issues. We had similar issues with or 2005 Lincoln LS when it had a weak battery.

I have 4 recurring problems with my Jeep. First, the driver's heated seats periodically will not work. Second, upon starting my car, it will just stall or shut down. This happens 2 to 3 times a week. Third, the check engine light continuously comes on and off (and when I get it checked, I am told something about the thermostat, but have had no problems with it overheating). Finally, the cruise control on/off button will not work sometimes. I have to physically hit the steering wheel for it to work. I have read about tons of recalls for my year Jeep, but my VIN number is not included. I am starting to think it should be.

My car is currently at 76k miles. Since around 20k miles, my car has had issues with starting that happens intermittently, slow/no response from push button start, slow/no response with Smart entry system when locking/unlocking doors. All of these issues are very intermittent. To go into more detail about the starting issue, the car would start completely, but then shortly after the rpm would drop to 0 and the electrical components would stay on. When trying to push the start button again, it would try to crank for 15 seconds. It's necessary to completely power off the car to properly start the car. Sometimes the issue presents itself immediately after. These issues happen with both key fobs even after switching to fresh batteries. I've taken it to Jeep dealership 4-5 times with no resolution. They have replaced the fuel pump relay twice for attempt to resolve starting issue. They were never able to duplicate or no codes would present themselves. I have strong suspicion of the tipm (totally integrated power module) failing, which is approximately $1200 to replace. Even though I have the extended warranty, Jeep will not replace until duplicated. I even left the car at Jeep for a week one of those visits. The issues happen almost every other day or on a very bad week, every day the car is used. Jeep customer service is very poor and I've been stuck with this issue for way too long. The starting issue even happened today, twice.

Timp recall, was repaired Jan 2015. Today vehicle stalled in traffic, completely shut down and lost power steering, while making a left hand turn. I am lucky I was not in an accident. I was able to restart the vehicle. I have made an appointment with the dealer, but since it was repaired previously, not sure what they will do for me. Obviously there is still a problem the recall did not repair.
