2012 Dodge Durango electrical problems: lift gate stops halfway

Lift Gate Stops Halfway

CarComplaints.com Seal Of This Might Hurt

CarComplaints.com Notes: When the 3rd-generation Durango was introduced in 2011 owners almost immediately started having a wide range of issues -- from water pump failure to stalling engines. Turns out the TIPM is to blame and those problems carried into the 2012 model year.

TIPM (Totally Integrated Power Modules) is responsible for controlling and distributing power to all the vehicle’s electrical functions. So when the TIPM starts acting up, so do all sorts of problems in the vehicle.

The problems have been so bad -- and replacement parts became so hard to find -- that a class-action lawsuit was filed against Chrysler focusing on the 2011-2012 Durango. The lawsuit accuses the automaker of ignorning the problem until it spiraled out of control.

After dealing with this problem for almost two years, and numerous complaints to Dodge, the dealership finally replaced the lift gate sensor letting me know that FOB one has a low battery. Another issue, have had to replace the FOB battery at least every two months.
