The recalled relay was the issue NOT the fuel Pump
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4dr SUV 4WD (3.6L 6cyl 5A)
I really loved my Jeep GC laredo. I had the key issue (one still doesnt work), dealt with the various recalls, including the "Relay". then the senor in the petrol tank issue came up and cost me $900+ to repair at the dealership in ATL. This issue which would slow the vehicle down in mid-drive that was VERY scary!! So the last couple months a new issue started - press the start button, … all the lights would come on etc.. but car wouldn't start, kept fighting to start. No engine light came on to indicate there was an issue. I took it to the dealership, they hooked it up, diagnose the issue that i needed my " fuel pump replaced". That job too would cost $900+ ..( the jeep has 90k miles, the PT warranty/ and my extended Mopar Warranty expired in July 2017) So this last weekend, (easter) the car just wouldnt start - kept trying to start but nothing - I had to get it towed. But not to the dealership. I decided to take it to a reputable independent mechanic. What he found out was the "recalled relay, that was replaced by Chrysler Dealership in 2016" was the issue and NOT the fuel pump. he went over the Jeep and they said since it was a recall replacement the relay was not under warranty, but what was odd they said they couldn't sell a new mopar relay.. so he went an bought one at mechanic supplier.. changed it and BAM the Jeep Starts ... so if you are having this issue... be sure to ensure they check the relay.. ($200 job) verses replacing a good fuel pump ($900+) job....
