Exclamation 2011 WK2 Starting Issues

I got a call from my Mother today telling me that her WK2 is not starting in the first try. It takes a few times for it to turn over and start, from what she's told me. It has 50,000+ miles and within the last month got a new battery. Could this be a grounding issue, possibly a loose ground? Also the WK2 has the 3.6 in it.

Update bump!

The wk2 was taken to the dealer and it turns out it needs a new TIPM (total integrated power module). Which is going to cost over $1000. So doesn't it look like there's no options with to fix the jeep. Anyone have any input?

Will it be covered under the Warrenty? I have the same type of Jeep with 36,000 and lately I noticed that when I start it there seems to be a drag...

The jeep is out of warranty so all cost are out of pocket.

I thought the Jeeps had a 100,000 mile power train warranty on them, if it won't start I would consider this part of the power train. Worth looking up and checking it out. Good luck to you.

I would assume the the dealership would be aware if this was under the power train warranty. Long story short my parents decided to upgrade to a new 2013 wk2 limited. My Dad didn't tell the dealer about the problem from the 2011 wk2 so he ended up saving a bunch from the trade!

Definitely not powertrain if it's the TIPM.
