 Description of the problemOn 12/13/2014, i purchased a new, 2014 dodge ram 1500 in san antonio, texas. On 01/23/2015, after accumulating 1000 miles on the odometer, i triggered the key fob to unlock the vehicle only to have the entire electrical system fail. I could not start the vehicle no matter what i tried. I notified dodge and had the vehicle towed to the dealership on 01/24/2015. After several visits to the dealership and numerous telephone calls, i could not receive any definitive answer as to what was being diagnosed or done to fix the problem. Eventually, i had to open a case file through dodge customer service. They too, were met with the same uncertainty and could not provide any additional information. After 40 days in maintenance and a great deal of acquired stress, the vehicle was finally returned in working order. The cause ? A faulty, total integrated power module (tipm). Upon further investigation of this unit i have come to find that (1) chrysler is aware of this issue, (2) there is a national backorder for tipm? S stretching months, and (3) legal action is pending. Due to the circumstances that i had to endure, i no longer want this truck, nor do i trust its integrity. Although the system failed at my home, it could have very well happened on the road and caused ? Who knows what?. I am done with this vehicle.
