Re: IPDM - ECU relay problems, symptoms and solution.
On Monday afternoon my wife called me from her work saying the Titan would not start (turn over). Battery seemed good, but the truck just wouldn't turn over.
Finally had it towed to the dealership that same afternoon. On Tuesday the dealership spent 1.5 hours diagnosing the problem and they concluded that it was the IPDM that needed replacing. The entire job cost me $580 CDN for parts and labour. The IPDM itself cost $260 CDN and the labour was 2 hours (diagnosing and repairing). I'm feeling like I've been gouged for this fix. If it's the IPDM why would it take 1.5 hours to diagnose it. Shouldn't it be quick to diagnose this problem?
Also, not sure if this is a new problem, but since the IPDM was replaced both my wife and I have noticed a difference in the performance of the truck. When I accelerate from a complete stop, the acceleration seems more smooth (i.e. no chirping at the start). When I throttle the truck at, say, 40 km/h (25mph) I don't hear the high rpms or feel that huge surge of power any more. It's smooth, yet still powerful, across the entire power band. Anyone else notice a difference?
