Failure Date: 01/27/2017

The tpm and security light flash intermittently/ I have had the vehicle over to fiat Chrysler service for a number of repairs for the same problem. Parts replaced included: steering wheel communication transceiver, internal wiring and ground checked, main engine transmission module, ignition switch. Repairs have been covered by Chrysler max care warranty, dealership has been working with me regarding repairs and supplied a loaner car. The tpm and security lights will flash for a short time at idle, speeds 10 mph through 60 mph, dry, rain, snow conditions. When the Jeep has been for repairs Chrysler factory was contacted by the servicing dealer. Jeep owners manual says if the security light is on for 16 seconds the engine will shut down. Initial diagnostics indicated the ignition key was not identified, the engine should not have started. On going problem from January 2017, new ignition switch replaced 3/ 8/ 2017. I drove around with a dealer installed diagnostic device for two weeks. When the tpm and sl powered on pressed a button on the diagnostic module that would recorded codes 20 seconds before and after the diagnostic device was triggered . I hope no one gets injured due to the Jeep engine shutting off while driving the vehicle. Once again the servicing dealer has been doing the best they can. Chrysler needs to identify the problem, other similar problems have been reported on the internet.
