With that recall, if I had fuel pump failure due to TIPM issues and had to replace both fuel pumps, would I be reimbursed by Chrysler?

I don't think I've heard of the TIPM failure causing a fuel-pump failure, but YMMV

I have the first recall "repair" done. Jumper with an external relay. I have replaced the relay they used and keep spares in the car and garage. I guess I will have to see what this one is about.

My jumper (fuse) melted and caused the fuel pumps to go bad, I had to buy new ones and pay labor...that was a year or so ago.

Usually it'd be the opposite.. bad fuel pump draws too much current and melts things..

You’re most likely correct, but my Durango was stuck in “trying to start” mode. That probably caused the pumps to suck in a lot of gunk and what not from the tank and caused the stuff I mentioned before. Here’s a link for your enjoyment

What does this recall do exactly? Replace the relays?

I've already been doing this since the first TIPM bypass. I find the relays start to go bad and you need to swap in a new $7 relay.

The problem here is no power to the fuel pumps to turn on - the starter spins but no fuel gets delivered, so nothing fires.
