Would cause a whistling noise at high fan speeds. The contact stated that the vehicle failed to start. No cuts in the element wiring were found, so repair kit could not be used. Keep diagnosing when it is acting up. Around April 2016, I was driving around my neighborhood looking for my children and the car suddenly lost power. The failure mileage was 64,002. Check the ground, battery neg to the engine block.
Then a week later car dead, needs new battery. This could happen while stopped or moving at any speed, even highways. Bad tipm is what I am told by others with similar stories; dealer says they cannot find anything definite problem started at approximately 70,000 miles but would start after 2-3rd try; occurring much more frequently taking 8 hours to start again. The battery is under the hood on the driver's side. I have heard of corroded starter terminals, although I would think that the dealer would have checked for this. If this problem is not corrected I will no longer buy Chrysler's products. I went shopping and came back out.

I had been in this person's office twice in the last few months trying to get an understanding of what is next? The day after we returned home it failed to start. They then told me that only the dealership can correct the tipm system.
I know Fiat bought Chrysler after this van was made and they don't want to pay for old ownership's mistakes, but it's just plain wrong that this hasn't been recalled. Both low and high speeds. Thank god we were only going 40 miles an hour and were able to cruise to a stop.
