I bought the sensor for $26.00 and it cost 50 to get it installed---I kept the receipt so when the recall happens I will submit the bill----I feel much better driving---don't have that "Will it stall" hanging over my head. I would suggest everyone do the same --Hell the vehicle cost over 40grand--whats another 80 bucks for piece of mind?

I paid $38 for the part, guy wouldn't go any lower. Changed it myself, I went from the bottom so I could see what I was doing. It took me like an hour, but I always get distracted when working on cool stuff.

I had the crank sensor fail after only 40 km (25 miles) on a 2008, not too sure of the production date but it was in the last 6 weeks.. the jeep was a factory order..

I am not sure if you can file a complaint on the NHTSA website or not since you are in Canada. Does Canada have something similar?

The more people that complain the more likely something will get done to get this problem recognized by Chrysler, and prevent a serious safety issue from killing someone who is unaware of it, or these forums. Probably 90% of people with these vehicles will never see these forums.

My wife just called. She is driving the 2007 CRD and it would not accelerate at all. She turned it off and back on and then it worked for 15 minutes then did it again.

The Engine was still running but pressing the pedal to the floor did nothing

Is this the same thing?

Sorry for the delay in my reply, I didn't realize there was a new post here. I am going to guess if there are no codes in the computer, then the CPS may have something to do with it, but I am not sure. I have heard they can behave in different ways. Have you taken it to the dealership since you posted that?

Yeah took it in the next day and no codes. And it has not happened since.

Changed mine out today

Dropped the skid-plate.



Remove the heat-shield bolt with a 10mm socket



Disconnected the connector.



Removed the sensor bolt with a 1/4" socket. (What kind of head is that?)

Reinstalled...no big deal.



Old sensor has a date of 07 T 5 (5th day of 2007)
New one is 07 T 233.

I'd like to take the old one apart, but I'm keeping it as a spare...just in case...

Thanks to 2007GrandDiesel for the original post. I have a company truck that I keep at home, so the WK is used mostly for drives that run from 300 to 3,000 miles. It would have been a royal pain dying in Chicago rush hour, blizzards in Wyoming, or 4 wheeling in the Arizona desert.

I had the TIPM totally Intergrated Power Module replaced the other day, the hesitation has disappeared, seats heat correctly,the shutting down seems to have stopped. Looks like this module is real important to have changed.
