Wife has a 2012 Charger 3.6 acting up a bit. Sometimes it starts right up, sometimes it cranks for a few seconds before starting. Twice it has failed to start the first time after several seconds of cranking but then starts fine. No pattern that we can figure out. Did this in the winter, too, and now it's baking here so temp doesn't seem to be the issue.

Searching the internet suggested a possibly bad relay in the TIPM. Ordered replacement relay only to discover what we thought was the TIPM in the engine compartment is unlike any we saw online. On the plus side, the fuel pump/starter relay is actually right up top and easy to replace. So we did Saturday. This morning her car hesitated a little before starting so I'm not sure we addressed anything.

The car seems to run just fine once started.

Any ideas?
