TIPM Test/Bypass Cables

If your 2007-2016 Dodge, Jeep, Chrysler, or VW vehicle fails to start (acts likes it's out of gas) and/or your fuel pump continues operating after turning the vehicle off (draining your battery), you likely have a faulty fuel pump relay.  Fuel pump relays are soldered to one of six circuit boards located deep inside your fuse box, so they are very difficult to access and change.  We developed the TIPM test/bypass cable in 2014 as a great way to diagnose your TIPM problems by checking the proper operation of your fuel pump and testing your fuel pump relay. But our TIPM cables are mainly used to bypass a faulty fuel pump relay and keep your vehicle on the road.  You can build your own using the plans below or buy one that's ready to use.  With tens of thousands of TIPM cables in use around the world, it may be the most inexpensive fix you'll implement.  Find your vehicle in the chart below and click on the link to find the correct TIPM cable fuse type.

Applicable Tested Vehicles for TIPM Test/Bypass Cables

To verify that our TIPM cables will work on your vehicle, please check the chart below and click on the link that will take you to the correct cable type (mini-blade fuse or micro2 fuse). If you don't know the vehicle year/model, verify that your TIPM looks similar to the following TIPMs that are compatible with our cables: mini-blade cable version (TIPM-7) or micro2 cable version (TIPM). It's normal to have fuses and relays in different locations on this style TIPM, depending on your vehicle options and model.

Note 1: We have not tested our TIPM Bypass/Test Cables on these vehicles, but they might work. To work properly, two conditions must be met:

  1. The fuel pump must be connected directly to the fuel pump fuse (fuel pump relay must come before the fuse slot).  The easiest way to confirm this is to verify that no voltage exists on the fuel pump fuse when your vehicle is turned off.  You can use a multimeter or test light to check by touching the one end to the bare posts on the top of the fuel pump fuse and the other end to chassis ground.  In rare situations, applicable vehicles with fuel pump relays that are stuck on when the vehicle is turned off may give a false negative.
  2. Your fuse type must match the type of cables we build (mini-blade/fuse or micro2).
If you can measure 12 VDC across your fuel pump fuse when the vehicle is off, chances are a TIPM Bypass/Test Cable won't work since the faulty fuel pump relay likely exists between your fuse slot and fuel pump. Injecting power won't help in this situation. More info is available here.

Note 2: Our TIPM Bypass/Test Cables work perfectly on these vehicles as long as you have not allowed your dealer to install an external fuel pump relay (ie. the part used to fix the fuel pump relay problem for the nationwide recall on 2011-2013 Dodge Durango and Jeep Grand Cherokees). External relay installations involve the cutting and splicing of TIPM harness wires, which completely disconnects your normal fuel pump circuitry from the TIPM.
