Newer vehicles require dealer or locksmith. Sometimes you are lucky on simpler remotes but you need two working remotes to program a third. As things get more complicated, the cost goes up. That's the world we live in, crazy as it sounds.
There may be some DIY videos on youtube showing how to recenter a steering wheel. I've done it before, but back in the day before airbags and all that electronic crap started running through the steering wheel. I saw one video for a Nissan where there was a u-joint type connection on the steering shaft under the dash that the guy was able to loosen to re-center the wheel. Sorry to not be more insightful but the majority of members here pay someone else to work on their vehicles or have extended warranties. As the platform gets older ( I know, it's already 10 years old, lol) maybe we will get more DIY'rs on here who can start doing write ups on stuff like you are doing to yours. Good luck.
An alignment will get done, money doesn’t grow on trees for me. Get divorced and drug through the courts, lose your house; your truck and be forced to buy a broken vehicle, declare bankruptcy and you will understand. If I can fix something myself or make less work for the alignment why wouldn’t I? To adjust the alignment have to adjust the tie rod ends which
are seized on... therefore needing to be replaced therefore costing even more.
So I took out everything went back to stock just like it was when I bought it but still no sound. I'm not sure what I can do. Is there a way to reset the stereo that I dont know about to get into factory mode resetting menu. I have a 2013 journey just so your clear on the year
Glad it worked out. Keep in mind, that probably means you have a short on the power supply wire leading to your Curt harness or the ground is no good. Might want to inspect it...you may need to tow something in the future.
