This problem started today. I leave my house the nitro starts up just fine. Drive about 30min to meet with some people. Get back in the nitro and go to start it and it kind of starts. But won't turn over all the way. Turn it off and try again. Same thing. Tried a few times and it did the same thing over and over. Then probably on the 10th try it started right up.
This video shows exactly what was happening.
No idea why it started doing this since its NEVER done it before. Any ideas?
Also there is ZERO codes.
The relay is soldered into the bottom section of the TIPM. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to remove the old one and solder a new one in place, but using the bypass cable has worked for me without issue so far.Cant you just replace the fuel pump relay in tipm
Do have replace entire unit
Thanks BokehThe relay is soldered into the bottom section of the TIPM. There are some videos on YouTube that show how to remove the old one and solder a new one in place, but using the bypass cable has worked for me without issue so far.
Do you still feel good about that as your solution? This is driving me literally and figuratively nuts. Mechanic kept it three days, then changed cam sensor which did not solve it. I just contacted veritical visions.I had the same problem. It was very intermittently at first, but then was happening much more often... and always after sitting a short time between drives. Last time it happened I had to let the car sit for an hour before it would start. Apparently, it was the fuel relay. I wasn't too keen on pulling my TIPM apart and soldering a new one in (asinine that this is soldered in imo), so I found a website that sells a test/bypass cable:
$25 for the cable, and I haven't had it happen again since. Hope this helps.
I never did anything as mine hasnt done it in quite awhile. I would do it on mine if it got bad again though. Could last forever for less than 20bux. At the least if it fixed it you will know the relay is to blameDo you still feel good about that as your solution? This is driving me literally and figuratively nuts.

What’s the key dance lol?Im in agreement with you. I almost hate to type this but it hasn't done it in weeks. The first time it did it years ago, I freaked out. I have heard a ton of solutions for this. But the thing is, until someone says it hasn't done it in a year or more, I'm not going for it. I changed the sensor, thought it was fixed. A month later, it did it again. I added the additive, it did it again. The bypass makes sense to me but for now, I do the " key dance". Whether that is doing something or not, it starts after I do it and makes me think it did something!
These are the same symptoms I experienced. If heat is an issue, as I very well could be, it could be that the fuel pump relay is overheating and not working properly. Since I have installed the bypass I have not had the issue repeat itself, so I do suggest giving it a try.I’ve realized it only does it when it’s been stopped and started multiple times throughout the day so I really do think it has something to do with heat. Cause if I go from point A to B it’s fine. It’s when I have to go from point A B C and D that it starts acting up. It’s annoying cause if I’m out and it doesn’t start I’m stuck waiting till it wants to start.
Welcome to the forum @Esha. When you have a chance, head over to the Newbie Section (<click this) and say "Hi".What’s the key dance lol?
