2008 Dodge Nitro Owner Comments

problem #1

Aug 202014

Nitro 4WD 6-cyl

  • 96,000 miles


On August 20th, 2014, I noticed that my power door locks and front windshield washer pump had both stopped working. Looking this up online, I saw that there were numerous complaints with the tipm system for my Nitro as well as other Chrysler models. Since the repair costs were estimated at more than $1000, I decided to go without getting this repaired for the time being. Today, while heading into a local supermarket, I noticed a horn beeping, and turned around to find that it was my Nitro! the horn was going non-stop, the wipers were moving and the washer fluid was spraying out continuously. I ran to the car, embarrassed I moved it to the back of the lot, where two men helped me try and pull fuses out of the tipm unit, in an effort to get the horn to stop. We finally found the right ones, but the wiper pump had to be unplugged as it wouldn't shut off. What a coincidence that this happened to me, after reading numerous stories of the exact same thing happening to other people who own Dodge Nitro's. if Chrysler does not take responsibility for this defect, not only will I never buy from them again, I will tell everyone I can to never waste their hard earned money on a Chrysler product; that's bound to have a negative effect on their sales.
