Safety Recall – Engine Stalling

There was a forum several weeks ago regarding engines on the new JK quitting while they were being driven. It happened to me three times since December. When I brought it to the dealer…no luck fixing the issue.

Yesterday, I received a letter informing me of a safety recall for the same exact problem. It’s called, “The Totally Integrated Power Module.” It appears they have to program and update new software.

I am going to go out on a limb with this, so mark it. 07-10-07


I HONESTLY dont believe that a "reprogram" Is going to solve this problem. Its a HEAT related issue, and the engineers have been aware of it for quite some time. Mark my words on this, and IF after a year, I am wrong bring this post up and FLAME ME!!! Kinda like a "prediction"....

The idea of flaming anyone is quite intriguing but that may be best for another forum. As for the issue at hand, why do you believe it’s heat related?

I got my recall notice a couple of days ago in the mail and dropped my JK off at the dealership this morning. I haven't had any problems with it yet and hope that I don't have any in the future.

Oh no. If I am wrong, I deserve to be hammered. And hammered HARD.

It is a heat related issue, but thats not the one they are chasing with this TSB. When a Chrysler engineer tells you that you should remove your fuse box cover and drill holes in your aftermarket intake heat shield because "It helps with ONE of the MAJOR PROBLEMS with the TIPM, the other main problem with them is heat. We had all kinds of problems when we were testing them in 06, but only when we were in death valley"


Anyone remember the FORD EEC-IV Blue grommet modules in Fords and YJ's??? Also heat related. Also a big problem when FORD mounted the TFI modules to the distributor. Same heat problem, but the corrected it by putting a heat sink on it and mounting it to the inner fender well.
