The coolant fan is powered by hydraulic fluid from the power steering pump. Has there been any work on the cooling system or power steering system lately? Make sure the switch is connected.... might be air locked. check power steering fluid level and coolant fluid level.......

Was told it was the TIPM. None available. Chrysler discontinued as usual. BBA Reman could not repair. Appears I am screwed.

I had the same problem with my truck except it was fuel pump shutting down. I found me a damn good mechanic and for the whole wiring schematics for our year trucks and he figured out the wiring and in a professional way he cut wires going to the fuse box(TIPM) and installed an external relay just for my fuel pump.

Truck is now at dealership 3 weeks. No cure for the TIPM as of yet. Can anyone help me! It's an 06 with only 28K miles. Shame to have to give up on it.

You are going to have to get creative as trailmix said. They even have a recall on the newer grand Cherokees to relocate the fuel pump relay out of the tipm because of the internal relay failing. The dealership will most likely not do this but most anyone with some electrical knowledge and a wiring diagram / connector pinout can make this repair. I do have access to the wiring diagram and connector pinouts if you need a copy, or if you want to bring it out to PA I'll make the repair for you.

Three points;

1. The Fan isnt controlled by the TIPM in the first damn place.

2. The Fan is Hydraulic and PCM controlled via a PWM signal. A relay ain't gonna do it guys.

3. I spoke to this customer. From the sounds of it, this is an an instrumentation failure, an issue with the cluster, or a communication pass-through problem. None of those a "bypassable" issues.

To boil it down, its a complicated issue, and without the vehicle in hand, there is no way to tell if the dealership is even remotely correct on the TIPM diagnosis. There are FOUR modules involved with the passage of engine information.
