So, thread hijack possibly...
I have had random electrical thingies (not as severe as that) and so far have not had to have the TIPM replaced. But weird stuff, like the windshield wipers that wouldn't shut off (fortunately at home where I could disconnect the battery for a few minutes). I hate computer controlled vehicles! The only "electronics" on my 1972 Commando is the freaking AM radio. And if that dies I'd never notice, I never turn it on. I've had the ESP light on me a couple of times and stay on for the required three starts (I think).
Possibly the only smart think I have done is isolate all my add ons through relays which may have minimized those computer overloads.
I would say the extended warranty I paid big bucks for has more than paid off on this vehicle. My Durango I never used it. This one has paid well over $10000 to the dealer to fix random mechanical failures.
Well, a buddy warned me never to buy the first model year and I had to have a four door. I should have listened to him.
