  1. First Flat Tire

    A friend of mine recently took his '14 Journey to Discount Tire to have a slow leak fixed on the right rear tire... they found a piece of metal in the sidewall which they could not plug. They would not put original tire back on, so he had them put on the donut spare. He drove it home, <4 miles on side roads, no issues... Next day he went back to Discount Tire to have new tires installed. When leaving home and backing out of the driveway the Journey made an awful grinding sound, with some vibration. The noise continued all the way to the tire shop, with the "Service 4WD System" constantly flashing and beeping. He said he was glad he was close to home, could not have tolerated a longer trip. After new set of tires were put on, warning errors went away, but he says he still hears a very slight grinding sound once in awhile... Anyone else had this issue? Seems the AWD system did not like the smaller 17" tire. Hopefully no permanent damage was done. Don't understand why a factory supplied spare would basically be "unusable" due to the issues described...

  3. The same bulletin mentions 7.09 (TSB 08-004-17 / RRT 15-112). I updated 2014 RB5 from CTP 16 to 7.09/CTP 17, and, as a test, afterwards reverted it back to CTP13, and then back to CTP17. If you need a copy of the TSB shoot me a PM.

  5. So far, the only Dodge vehicles with Apple Car Play are the 2017 Charger and 2017 Challenger (new 4th gen radios). May other vehicles will have it for the 2018 model year, but probably not Journey since it's near the end of its current generation.
  6. Block heater

    Yes, the block heater can be added, but it will be fairly expensive via the dealer. The heater is around $100 (U.S.) and install time is about 4 hours, it's quite an involved process. Installation instructions: 82212800_Journey_block_heater_install_01.pdf
  7. Rear hatch wont open

    There is a small 'emergency' access panel on the inside of the liftgate trim, at the bottom center below the light. Pry it open with a small flat screwdriver. Inside is what looks like a large plastic screwhead that can be turned with a phillips or large flathead screwdriver to open the hatch.
  8. Just curious is all, if someone were to have the issue with DVD player alignment, could they just simply copy the data from the disc on a desktop computer to a USB stick and then perform the map update?
  9. NEW SITE DESIGN: 16 July 16

    Great to hear, this software has to go in the trash!
  10. NEW SITE DESIGN: 16 July 16

    Add me to the list as well. In 15+ years of visiting and participating in countless forums, this has got to be the WORST for layout and intuitiveness. It is also extremely slow, pages take forever to load. The rookie designer of this software has to be someone who is not familiar with forums at all, and certainly someone who should not be involved in web site design. Maybe their goal was to design "the worst message board layout on the net". If so, they succeeded.
  11. I agree, I don't visit here much anymore, due to not only the awful layout but the site is extremely slow. Whoever designed this forum software should find another career, it's probably the worst I've ever seen on any forum out there. The prior software was SO much better.
  12. New Journey, Not till 2018

    That site is full of bogus and inaccurate information, designed for no other reason than "click bait".
  13. 20" Cherokee SRT8 wheels

    I would do a little more research, these appear to be cheap Chinese knock-offs. At under $200 per wheel I can't see them being all that durable in the long-term.
