  1. Hatch is stuck.

    Have you had someone push from the outside while you attempt to turn the white plastic screw? Maybe the latch is in a weird position and the plastic screw will not turn without some external pressure. Good Luck. Peace.
  2. 1st oil change mileage?

    1000 miles for my DJ. My 2011 has 70k miles and still runs like new. First oil change is important to get the engine started right. That's my opinion. Peace.
  3. Rear door locks

    Maybe this will be helpful. . . From the 2011 manual: Automatic Door Locks — If Equipped When enabled, the door locks will lock automatically when the vehicle’s speed exceeds 15 mph (24 km/h). The Automatic Door Locks feature can be enabled or disabled by your authorized dealer. See your authorized dealer for programming. Automatic Unlock Doors On Exit The doors will unlock automatically on vehicles with power door locks if: 1. The Automatic Unlock Doors On Exit feature is en- abled. 2. The transmission was in gear and the vehicle speed returned to 0 mph (0 km/h). 3. The transmission is in NEUTRAL or PARK. 4. The driver door is opened. 5. The doors were not previously unlocked. 6. The vehicle speed is 0 mph (0 km/h). To change the current setting, refer to “Uconnect Touch™ Settings” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information. NOTE: Use the Automatic Unlock Doors On Exit feature in accordance with local laws. Peace.
  4. Did you check the arm rest on the back seat?
  5. I believe it's real. If the fob is anywhere in the car, it will run. Can't even lock the car. Not sure where your fob is, but let us know where you find it.
  6. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    Thanks for the replies. I will check the heat shield and my A.C. hoses. I don't remember seeing clips on my debris shield but I will look again. Peace.
  7. New Journey owner - not thrilled

    @ OP, more details. . . There are plenty of people who are capable of helping here. Peace.
  8. Dash Rattle Near Windshield

    I have a similar rattle. Maybe the same rattle. Mine originates from the passenger side at the base of the windshield. Only occurs at highway speeds. Changes with side or head winds. Pressure on my dash has no effect. I have looked at the outside mirror, rubber seal trim around the windshield, the plastic in the wheel well, the wipers, and the plastic shield along the base of the the windshield. I have messed with and made changes to these here and there to no avail. I have given up. I would love to rid my DJ of this rattle, though. Any info is welcomed. Peace.
  9. 2014 3.6L Engine Ticking

    Journeyman to the rescue. Hopefully. . . If anyone can help, you can. Great to see you on the forum. Peace.
  10. 2014 3.6L Engine Ticking

    You have the option of doing nothing. I have heard of this engine light disappearing. That would not allow me to sleep though. I think you should take it to another dealer, if you have not done so already. It seems to me that you have to get it fixed and then go after Chrysler if they don't cover it. If they don't cover it, that's crap. I agree with bram, they are probably just testing your resolve. Best of luck to you, sir. Peace.
  11. 2014 3.6L Engine Ticking

    Take it to a different dealer. If it is the P0302 code, Chrysler has extended its engine warranty on the left side cylinder head to 10 years or 150,000 miles. They know about this problem and they should fix it. I had mine done at no cost. I have not heard that there is a model year specification, If another dealer does not fix it, call Chrysler. The exact code will be important if you have to elevate to Chrysler. Good luck. Peace.
  12. Rotors Warped After 25k miles?

    That's what I did on my 2011. EBC rotors and greenstuff pads. They have worked great over the last 3 years. Peace.
  13. post info

    While I agree that thoughtful informational posts are easier to understand and hence allow us to better help, folks have to be able to post what they want, when they want, and how they want. Sadly, many people have poor grammar and writing skills. Another issue is that English is many peoples' second or even third language. I think that even when language and grammar are not an issue, many people don't know what is important or just forget to include important information. I'm not sure how we could control input of info like year and engine size short of making those fields a required part of the post template. I guess that could be done by the forum moderator. I think its good that people here want to help others. Its a good thing that we get a little frustrated when information is omitted and we can't help. . . Its hard to help one post wonders or complainers. Those that really want help tend to return and clarify posts or add new info, I think. This forum has helped me over the years. Peace.
  14. 3 years & 100K Miles Later

    My 2011 has been very good as well. One funny story. I was traveling to Vegas and I was late for a show. Of course it was snowing all the way from my home to flagstaff! After that it cleared up. I was passed by a federal police officer going almost 100mph. Desperate times call for desperate measures. So I got on his rear and we drove about 100mph all the way to Kingman. Continued to LV from Kingman with cruise control set at 95mph. Made it to my show on time. DJ was smooth as butter and didn't skip a beat. Still got 17mpg while traveling almost 100mph. Ha! I never drive that fast, but my DJ sure did save that day! Never did figure out why the fed was traveling so fast. He wasn't responding to a call that I could discern. Peace.
  15. Travel link is a pay service added to a sirius subscription, btw. I have sirius travel link and I have found it to be useful at times. No weather location choices means that there is something not right with your travel link or uconnect. I have at least 12 cities on my state choices in my 2011 uconnect menus. Colorado shows at least 12 different choices, including Denver, on my unit. I keep the weather on my home area as my favorite and it's useful when I am traveling towards home. I have used the nearest weather station option when traveling other places on a number of occasions. I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the weather info, but one could say that about any weather source. I also use the gas station finder when trolling in unfamiliar areas. Its helpful to locate the next truck stop which is often the cheapest gas. Works fine. If your're paying for the service, I'd investigate further with sirius and/or your dodge service center. Peace.
