    We just experienced the same issues as previously mentioned. 3 days after replacing the altenator the battery light came on and the radio powered off speedometer quit working ac powered on and off and several dash lights came on traction control, brake, abs battery ect.. the battery tested good three times and bad once . Alternator read good . After checking all the connections we found the power supply plug /end to the alternator was not plugged in correctly. A small clip inside the plug was broken and would not allow it to click in place. After replacing the plug the problems seem to be solved .

    Heater hose failure

    Update 2- went this morning to do the heater core flush, popped hood and coolant reservoir was empty, popped open radiator cap and no visible coolant. No signs of coolant leaks anywhere in vehicle or under vehicle. I added approx 3/4 gallon of coolant and I now have heat in passenger compartment, still have check engine light for the coolant temperature sensor, but so far all fluid temps seem to be normal. Hope that might be the fix.

    Sounds like you have an air bubble in the system. That is a common problem when doing a complete flush and refill.

    How to manually turn the driveshaft

    Finally got the coupler out...new one going in same way taken out. Walk through would be: 1. Jack driver's side vehicle up until both tires off ground; secure with stands. This is for those of you who aren't down with jacks holding a 5600 lbs vehicle in the air. 2. 15mm socket; one long neck 1/4 drive extension; 5 inch 1/4 drive extension. 3. 17mm open box wrench. 4. Lubricant. 5. Get under vehicle and mark drive shaft to output. 6. Socket on bolts, wrench on nuts. 6 total. You can get to them all without having to turn the driveshaft much less raise the vehicle significantly. 7. Pry bar or similar tools to dislodge coupler from shaft and output. Spacers are holding it together, so pry those or tap them out until coupler loose. 8. Push driveshaft towards front of vehicle and lower. 9. Remove coupler and any remaining spacers. 10. Reassemble. 11. Dorman Driveshaft Coupler 935-302. Made in Germany.

    2017? Is it still under warranty? It would seem that if no warranty, you have found the place to start in the other thread that you posted this problem too. I would be inclined to start with what has worked for others as posted in that thread.

    as the above post ,were both heater hose hot after running the heater that long if only one was hot id say you have a blocked heater core as it isnt letting the hot water to pas thur the heater core,you might want to do a reverse heater core flush since your journey is a 2013

    It's not unusual to trap air in the heater core. When filling the system, run the heat on full and make sure to feel both heater lines to make sure they reach the same temperature.

    Soft brake pedal, bad ABS unit?

    Hey buddy just wanted to let you know I fixed the Journey today. Turns out the problem was the passenger side rear caliper. I took the wheel off and noticed a gap between the piston and inner brake pad suggesting that the piston was stuck and not applying the brakes on that corner. I installed a new caliper, bled the brakes and now have a good firm pedal, stops like brand new. Definitely a learning experience for me. Would never have guessed a stuck caliper could cause a soft pedal. A good way to find if you have the same problem would be to unbolt one caliper at a time and have a helper push the brake pedal and see if the piston moves. I’ve used this method in the past to find bad calipers but didn’t bother on this car because I assumed it couldn’t be the problem. Live and learn. Good luck with your car!

    Make sure you take the time to clean up the 3 ground connections on the firewall as well as the positive connection under the red cover. I found mine on my 2013 already corroded. Hank
