    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.

    Most definitely take it to a different dealer. I recently posted to another thread about my experience between two dealers. In summary, the dealer I bought the vehicle from will never see my shadow in the door again. The dealer that I use now has impressed me more than once, even on the little things. There is no comparison. What you are experiencing is NOT normal. The dealer that you are currently working with is NOT fixing the problem. Your vehicle is still under warranty and has a serious issue that CAN be fixed by a competent dealer. In my case, when I sought out the second dealer, I did not even mention the first one. I wanted to test the second dealer and the integrity of the first one. The second dealer passed. Speculation on what the problem is is moot at this point. The possibilities range from the simple to the complex. It does not matter. It is a warranty issue. You paid for that warranty. It is time for a return on that investment. Keep corporate involved. Be polite but firm. Give the new dealer a chance. You know what the vehicle should do and what it should not. Good luck.

    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.

    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.

    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

    2011 Journey Wiper problems

    check to see if at the wiper motor you are getting juice to it when trying the different speeds, probally your switch or the motor itself, if no voltage at the lower settings id say its your switch, if getting power on all settings then i would assume its the motor

    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

    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

    Led light fitment

    Try switching bulbs with the passenger side. Maybe the bulb has a piece of uncut flashing or something on it. If the problem moves you know what the issue is. No issues when I changed mine to HID bulbs. Both slid in no problem, although the drivers side is a bitch....

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I did this repair on my 2014 van. Just one rocker failed the others were still in good shape so I left them alone. The hardest part of the job was getting the rear cover bolts off. They and the wiring are tight at the firewall. Hank

    The recirculate actuator is behind the glovebox on the right side of the cabin filter location.I took it out and when I plugged it back into the wiring harness it seemed to work.But I ordered a new one from the US for about $15 canadian since my wife will be there next week.You can order from Amazon https://www.amazon.ca/Dorman-604-029-Air-Door-Actuator/dp/B00HRSP2A6/ref=sr_1_1?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1552110225&s=automotive&sr=1-1&vehicle=2013-40-6800-2962--9-6--13827-14-1-1--246-2&vehicleName=2013+Dodge+Journey I also recommend this https://www.amazon.ca/Neiko-03044A-Mini-Size-Ratcheting-Screwdriver/dp/B000XYOUS6/ref=pd_sim_263_1/144-9645152-3666607?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B000XYOUS6&pd_rd_r=389e18b6-43b4-11e9-9df9-ff03b64505a6&pd_rd_w=AbwE1&pd_rd_wg=GyEEx&pf_rd_p=29a85b27-a36a-4f8d-94ca-61aa962c5f39&pf_rd_r=41N6N4X6RKSPHYK8HVNQ&psc=1&refRID=41N6N4X6RKSPHYK8HVNQ There are 2 philips screws holding it in but they are a pain to get at unless you unplug a couple of the wiring harnesses underneath. If you simply remove the actuator you can manually put the door into fresh air until you get a new actuator,that's what I have done for now. Check out this on youtube.The recirculate actuator is shown around 1:05 in to the video he's not sure what it is but that's the one that chooses fresh air or recirculate.

    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.

    Youre looking at 500 plus for rockers. I did mine myself. Found some videos on youtube. If you do them or a mechanic does. Make sure to replace both valve cover gaskets. I did the the repair around similar mileage to yours. Hell since youre past the mileage and have to take off the pcv valve anyway. You might as well replace that too.

    SE 2017 journey lacks speed

    The short answer is no... The only way to improve the DJ with the 2.4 is to trade it in for a 3.6. Realize that the 2.4 is a good little engine that could. My wife has a compass with the 2.4. It will do everything we ask it, but not fast. Not impressed with the mpg, either. Getting around 24 mpg combined. Not terrible, but not worth the sacrifice in power. The 3.6 does almost as well with mpg and has plenty of power. The 2.4 is for folks that shop with price as the main objective... Peace.

    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.

    Better news. Took it to the local dealer and insisted that their best tech do the work. Using the scan tool (I think), the tech reset the radio and it now works correctly. Not exactly sure what he did but, because we were "come-backs" the labor was waived. Also installed a new rear wiper blade at no cost, though the Mopar blade, made in Japan, was $21. The UConnect website sez that no firmware updates are pending, after I entered the VIN (https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/dodge.html) Thanks for your responses. Appreciate the help. Now hafta fix the small coolant leak. And I don't think that the plugs have ever been replaced (156K miles).

    Auto locking and horn going off

    I believe that larryl is referring to the engine battery. Check it or change it. That may be the problem as these cars are quite sensitive to voltage. Sounds like you have potentially identified the issue: the alarm/panic system. Doubt the fob battery was causative. Report back when you figure it out. These electronic gremlins may require the dealer service center... Good luck. Peace.

    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.

    Locosiete, I understand your point. I moved a few miles but in the same zip code State Farm increased my rates for no good reason. With that said, my vehicle needs a new viscous unit and rear differential that will cost approximately $1,800. This was as a result of the tow company mishandling my vehicle - the tow company that State Farm dispatched. I pay State Farm extra money for Roadside Service so they should cover the damages. I believe they will recover their money from the tow company. If they increase my rates I will find another insurance company.
