    In all fairness it was first year/gen. All manufacturers never get it right the first couple years. Plus did you buy it new or used? Buying a used car is like unprotected sex with a hooker. Everything might be fine or maybe it kills you. It's a risk we all take buying used LOL!

    Attempting to mod a V6 with a turbo

    Not to be rude, I am all for modding, but why not mod a car worth modding? The Journey is such a nice family vehicle, It would not be worth the $$ and time put into it for the outcome. Ive had many modified vehicles, Ive fabricated and done fully custom turbo kits etc, and the fun thing about building a racecar is being able to fix it when it breaks, because they always break. Enjoy the journey for what it is! you can buy a nice modified Nsrt-4 for $5k now a days which will be much more fun then the journey ever will be.

    I haven't had any problems with it. I have changed the sub and amp and the camera to higher quality. I've also got accessory lights ran to both the front and back. Those are on a toggle switch. Went under the console for the wiring there.

    Can't Unlock Maps

    We bought a new 2014 Journey in Nov 2013. Have just over 110k on it now. Have replaced the GPS POS unit 8 times at 2 different dealers under warr. Done, f'n done with Dodge and the way they handle this blatant fault on their end. Clowns. After a stable of 28 dodges in my life, it's my last and my kids won't be buying them either. Suck it FCA

    War Amps Key Tag Service

    Hey folks, a free plug for the War Amps Charity Key Tag Service in Canada. Was out mountain biking last summer and didn't realize I had a hole in a cycling jersey pocket and the key fob and keys fell out somewhere on my 2 hour ride. Ended up using the spare and did check the cost to replace from the dealer vs a locksmith company (within 5 bucks of each other). I had The War Amps Key Tag attached to the keys and almost a month to the day, a courier comes to my door with a package. Some kind soul found the keys, followed the instructions to drop in a Canada Post mailbox, and they found there way to The War Amps office, and they then forwarded them to me using the registration number with my confidential info. I was most pleased and tripled my annual donation immediately! Been using this service for years and a faithful contributor. It will continue.

    SE 2017 journey lacks speed

    Did you not test drive the car before buying it?We first drove a gutless 2.4l Canada value package for a short ride before I asked to drive the 3.6.If you ask me the 2.4 is underpowered and offers little in the way of better mpg

    I thought also maybe the fuel pump but I then thought it would still be making the sound even when its just sits there running. I'll have my local guy check it out and let you know what it is. Thanks for all the help.

    Used 2018 buy now or wait

    first off the 2020 journeys wont be made until July -Aug of 2019, long time to wait if you need a bigger car now. do what you can afford, have to ask why buy a used 2018 when you could get a great deal on a left over 2019, sales are slowing down now, so check out the new car deals they also come with low or zero % financing compared to used car rates which are always 2-3 times higher

    I say if the ride you want is available in your price range, grab it. You could wait, taking the chance the car you want won’t be available. If it were me, I’d rather have a car I want then a good deal on something that I’m just “OK” with, but I also don’t have 4 kids either. Only you can decide. good luck....

    Remote starter

    Straight outa the manual: To Enter Remote Start Mode, Press and release the REMOTE START button on the RKE transmitter twice within five sec-onds. The vehicle doors will lock, the parking lights will flash and the horn will chirp twice (if programmed). Then, the engine will start and the vehicle will remain in the Remote Start mode for a 15-minute cycle. NOTE: • If an engine fault is present or fuel level is low, the vehicle will start and then shut down in 10 seconds

    Light bar, hikari led headlights

    Just purchased my 18Dj Crossroads last week, already received some led stuff (+1 for prime). Also replaced my passenger headlight housing, the OEM had moisture leaking in from somewhere. Got around to installing most of it this weekend! Have any questions, let me know!

    Led light fitment

    im thinking its the bulb because i kept test fitting the stock halogen, and it would fit no problem. i am going to troubleshoot and contact company if not fitting. this is the reason i went with a $100 pair to avoid these stupid issues.

    Don't get mad, get a refund. It seems to me that if you can document the number of replacements that have been made you have the basis for an interesting suit against FCA in small claims court in your province. They charge $2,100 for the navigation group in Canada (probably $1200 of that just for the nav, but let the judge figure that out) and you've been denied enjoyment of it, not to mention the loss of about 32 hours (at 4 hours per swap) just getting it 'repaired'. I just noticed that the Canadian web site doesn't even have a 2019 Journey on offer. It is in the US. Very strange.

    ETC light and battery change

    It the ETC light is still on, something is wrong with the ETC. Changing the battery, since it was the original, was a good place to start, but if the light still comes on you have an issue. What codes are coming up?

    Light bar, hikari led headlights

    Looks nice. I was thinking of mounting a lightbar in the same spot. Went as far as buying it last fall but never got around to mounting it. Glad to know will look like how i envisioned it. First thing i do when i buy any vehicle is change the lights. Can't see a thing at night with those old halogen bulbs. Especially after it rained lol. I made the switch from HIDs to led couple years ago and never went back. Seemed like every year i would either need to replace a bulb or ballast or both on one side or another on mine or my wife's. Should mention i didn't buy some crap brand off ebay so can't blame that on the issue. But since switched to LED no problems with wife's car and only had to change 1 bulb in mine. I'd say definitely an improvement.

    No power

    Check fuses and fusible links (if there are any). Sounds like you fried something, or something is not connected. Who replaced the battery and alternator? Why were they replaced? The more info you provide, the better we can try to assist you. Otherwise, you need to get it looked at by a shop if you don’t know how to check basic things, trace wiring, etc.

    Roof mount DVD player with sunroof

    Be aware the Journey has “active” headrests. A part of the SRS. Check your manual and verify if hanging anything on them impacts their operation.

    new floor mats

    my drivers side floor mat was starting to come apart and looking sad so i bought a set of 3D MAXpider Front Row Custom Fit Floor Mat for Select Dodge Journey Models - Classic Carpet (Black) cost me about $78. they had some great reviews on them well rec them yesterday and they fit the floor great and snug goes up the sides a bit and even covers the foot rest on the left side. the only thing is they rivet their 3d silver logo to the top side towards the back guess i could spray it black. other than that they fit great and look great, not a real carpet feel but looks and feels good hope they last

    Roof mount DVD player with sunroof

    There was much discussion on this in the past. Try a forum search but.... To install a roof mount you need to remove the headliner, then install support brackets, replace the rear heat/AC controls(I think) with a different style. then run wires/cables from the radio to the unit. As I recall the consensus was go with the headrest mount. Good luck....

    Second video is more helpful. Pro tip have an extendable magnet in case a rocker falls in the valve train. Its not the end of the world if it does. I advise unhooking the battery leads too.

    Navigation Update

    Your assumption is correct; The nag screen is triggered by the age of the maps and is unrelated to the availability of updates. The traffic-less navigation data is adequate, even if it is a year old - the mapping on board is adequate for the vast majority of my nav needs. And, given the cost of the traffic service (we don't get the 5 years of free service in Canada) and the availability of much better mapping and traffic data online from a number of different providers I have stopped updating the mapping in my unit and let my Android phone do the heavy lifting (I use Waze for this) when I am on a schedule and need to thread my way through traffic, though in truth I rarely actually use the app. Will I update the mapping? Perhaps one day; when I have the time and am so utterly bored that I won't mind spending all the time required to build a map set and load it.

    low battery turn on CEL?

    My 2010 T&C threw a P0562 a few years ago. It was due to a failed battery. No other issues ever presented (other than those associated with a dead battery that won't charge anymore). The code specifically means "low battery voltage." It could be due to other issues, but if you've got an older battery and that code, it's past time to replace it.

    Update: Melloy Dodge in Albuquerque replaced the rear differential and viscous unit. The total cost with labor was about $1,850. They used new Mopar parts. Last Friday morning I filed a claim with State Farm. They contacted Melloy Dodge Friday afternoon and Dodge provided them with an estimate and pictures. On Monday morning an adjuster from State Farm showed up at Melloy Dodge to look at the rear bumper????? Dodge told him the vehicle was there for damage to the rear differential and viscous unit and told him the damage was due to the vehicle being towed improperly. They also informed him that they sent an estimate and pictures to State Farm last Friday. Monday afternoon I received an email from State Farm advising me that they were mailing me a check for $670 for the repairs. I logged onto their website to look at the details and noticed that the adjuster prepared an estimate to have my rear bumper replaced. FYI - there is nothing wrong with my rear bumper except for usual wear and tear (scratches). I called the claims department and they advised me that since the repairs to the rear differential and viscous unit were complete the adjuster couldn't do an estimate. He did an estimate for non-existent damage to my rear bumper. I think they were trying to throw me a bone to make me go away. On Tuesday I called my agent Don Mason and gave him the background story. 20 minutes later I got a call from the claims department advising me that they were depositing $1,986.28 into my checking account to pay for the repairs to my rear differential and viscous unit. My agent called me back and advised me they would recover their money from the company they contract with to provide Roadside Assistance and/or the wrecker company. He told me the check for $670 to cover the repairs to my rear bumper was in the mail. I just picked up the car and it drives great. Melloy Dodge was outstanding. The service manager, techs and mechanics were amazing. I'm not sure what is going on at the State Farm Claims Department. I told my agent I thought I was in the twilight zone when I was talking to them. With that said, my agent did a great job assisting me with my claim.

    Agree with 2late4u. Most of my vehicles have had this problem in very cold weather. The Journey is actually not too bad but I always use the defrost vent / floor setting for just this reason. Anything else and the side windows will begin to fog around the edges. The problem is worse if your door and window seals have any air leaks. Clean and treat the seals as part of your normal vehicle maintenance.

    Since you have already replace the lock actuator, I'd check the wiring that goes trough the boot, between the body and the door.
