Please help. I cracked my screen on my 2011 Dodge Journey. I can still see all the buttons but they don't respond to th touch. I have called the dealership and they are asking 1600. Please tell me there is an alternative!
I concur with the electrical connectivity being the source of your issue. If you know how to work with electrical wiring, go for it. I can't find any direct information regarding the wiring harness involved. If you choose to tackle it yourself, you'll have to pay close attention to what you're doing. Use sensible precautions when working with electrical wiring (don't touch live wires, disconnect the battery, etc.)
If you aren't sure how to work with electrical wiring in a safe manner, pay the shop. No sense in doing more damage on your own dime when the shop assumes liability if they screw up.
I've been having issues starting my 2010 Journey (2WD 6 cyl, 3.5 L, Automatic 6-spd) and I'm convinced it may be a bad starter. I replaced the battery in January and just replaced the alternator a few days ago after my car would not start and a horrible smell permeated through the vents when attempting to start multiple times. New alternator is in and now when I turn the key to attempt to start the engine, I get nothing, no sounds whatsoever. Lights are on and do not dim when attempting to start. Can anyone advise where exactly the starter is located? I have not been able to find the location of the starter and have not found any indication of where it may be online. Any help would be much appreciated. Pictures of starter location would be even better.
Hey everyone! I have been looking around the forumn and making a few posts so I thought I'd introduce myself- I'm Brandon and I live in Wisconsin. I got a 2014 Dodge Journey SXT. I love doing mods so I will post as more come! Right now I tinted my front windows and just dipped part of the front bumper!
So after a little back and forth I finally installed the Curt wiring harness instead of trying to make the pre-installed harness work (plus, from what the dealer said, I would of been looking at another $250 in parts and flashing). Instead of routing the Curt harness the way they suggest I took the extra time and went over the wheel wells by removing the covers and going through the side plate thing under the driver side doors. I didn't want to attach anything to the brake lines, or try to go around/over/through the suspension, muffler, or gas tank. It took a little longer, but well worth it. At the end of the day, it went on just as promised, no problems with the connections, and worked like a charm. First road trip with trailer is in two weeks, can't wait.
Journeyphenia, I would still be interested in trying to work something out with the harness you have...if you are not going to do anything with it.
