2012 Challenger wont start

Hey all,

Tried to start my Challenger on sunday morning and nothing. It just turned on the radio and kept giving me a "Service Power Steering" error. I took it to the dealership and they called dodge engineering. According the engineering they have to replace the TIP-ON/ TYP-ON module? First I ever heard of it.

Anyone have any idea what that is?

thanks,

If I'm not mistaken that module allows the engine to be started by just a quick push of the button or turn the key and release, no need to hold button or key till the engine starts.

It sounds like the TIP Start function on the Dodge trucks. Quick Start prevents double starts, preserves battery, ignition and gear life.

Basically, it means that once you turn the key to start the vehicle the electronics takes over. In auto. trans. vehicles, you only need to turn the key (or press the start button) to "start" for an instant, and the computer will continue to crank the engine until it has started for you. Most new cars (CANbus cars) will do this, since the ignition is no longer wired to the starter relay. Its just a switch wired to the computer.

My SE did that same thing. Only there was no power at all after the third try. The dealership told me very little about what caused it. But I was told that after the third try it locks out everything. Here I was with frozen food, ice cream. and a sick friend headed home. They did fix it in less than an hr but I was not happy

It's funny you mention the power steering because someone in another thread had a similar problem and none of us had ever heard of a power steering issue being mentioned for anything. I just had my mother inlaws ford Edge into the dealer for a similar problem and it turned out to be the keyfob that was the problem. The other 2 fobs it turned out worked just fine, just the one she normally used wouldn't.

Mine wouldn't start and after all the diagnostics at the dealer, they said nothing was wrong. I told them the brake lights stuck on and they said there was nothing wrong with the switch etc. Came out of a restaurant today and viola, the brake lights were on. Backing into the garage, took my foot off the brake and the brake lights stayed on. Lift the pedal with my toe and they go off. Just as I told them. Another danged trip to the dealer for something they should have fixed three weeks ago! This time I have a photo to prove it!
