    220 miles a tank!?

    Check your brakes also. The dealership here does not check the brakes as part of a routine oil change without tire rotation. They mark off the blue (N/A) spot on the inspection sheet. You may have a slight drag on a brake. The front should make the car pull to one side, even slightly. The rear will not show in driving if very light but it will wear the pads and rotors noticeably and drop gas mileage considerably.

    220 miles a tank!?

    As jkeaton said, it might be time for a tune up. If over 100,000 miles, get your spark plugs changed (if they have not been changed before). If it is a 6 cylinder, go with the iridium plugs, preferably mopar plugs. And - take the advice from the boys above and check the brakes. Best of luck. mechanical-idiot

    Front end wobble/vibration

    Was the vibration there before you had the work done? What was mentioned above is good advice. I had two new tires and some front end work done on a different vehicle. Both the front end work and one of the new tires went bad. The tire had a bubble that caused vibration and was replaced. Once the vehicle was returned from the shop a second time, the vehicle had enormous torque steer that they told me was normal. It had 250.000 miles on it and had never done it before. Short story is I found that the 35lb max tire was inflated to 60lbs and I drove it like that for 2 months never thinking to check for that. Take it back to the shop and have them check their work. Check the tire pressures your self.

    so what eng 3.6 i guess?how many miles on the speedo, does the journey seem to be running fine,hard to guess what is wrong from here, sounds like a trip to your dealership for a diagnostic test, possible gas leaking from tank my daughters caravan the fuel pump leaked right after coming out of the tank they used a plastic fitting that would age and crack.good luck on what you find out.

    This is what it supposedly means... The 3 overlapped cars is the status of the XM traffic subscription. If it is green, the sub. is active; if it turns orange/red it is not active or didn't receive the signal. The traffic service overlays the red,yellow,green lines on the roads to indicate traffic speeds and the incident screen will tell you what is going on where. Cute way of showing your signal strength.

    After two weeks of try I have finally resolved the unlock map problem, 0x31A0 issue and upgraded to 2020.10 Map today!! The map version I loaded to USB is 2020.10, total file size is aorund 6.1 GB. Like many others, I have 0x31A0 error too and read every reply in this thread from page 1 to last and learned a lot from others. As other says, the key to resolve 0x31A0 is the USB drive! Basically, the symptom of 0x31A0 is when you insert USB, it fails the validation and says "Please retry update procedure or contact your dealer for assistance"; then if you do not click OK for 3 or 4 sec. it will pop up "Error on Reflashing. Errorcode: 0x31A0. Please touch screen". Overall, the key to pass validation and avoid 0x31A0 is to get a big brand USB 3.0 formatted as FAT32. I would recommend an at least 16GB USB drive if you are buying new one as the map will get bigger in following years anyway. Here are all USB I tried and failed: Noname 8GB USB 2.0 FAT32 -- No recognized at all Kingston 8GB USB 2.0 FAT32 -- Recognized, validation failed. 0x31A0. Noname 128GB USB 2.0 NTFS -- Not supported USB Sandisk 256GB USB 3.0 exFAT -- Not supported USB I read somewhere in this thread that people have higher success rate with USB 3.0 FAT32 format, but since my new Sandisk 256GB USB 3.0 came with exFAT which is better capabilities than FAT32. However, Windows does not allow me to format it to FAT32, I have to use DiskGenius to format my 256 GB USB to FAT32. After that, just loaded all files mentioend in original posting to USB, validation passed, navigation rebooted and the copying files to car took me around 1.5 hours, and finally I was noticed "Update Maps successfully" and "cant unlock detail maps" error is gone! Also, with a larger USB I never need to use the Fallback method to load ASR, JCV, SID folders multiple times. All files and folders are copied to my car once. If you have 0x31A0 issue, just keep in mind and convince your self that your dodge vehicle is a picky vehicle and only premium USB drive can match a premium vehicle. Special thanks to RScottyL, tanbam and many other members! I did not acquire a Garmin Nuvi to get all necessary files. see [https://mega.nz/#F!gQIVkaZR!0gwsBO_4sO7g--fWHbAOMA] If you are reading this, keep it low profile.

    There is no separate fuse for the lift gate listed in the owner's manual. There is, however, a known and common issue with the wiring harness as it passes from the body to the lift gate. Perhaps there is a single wire issue there effecting your locks on the lift gate.

    Front end wobble/vibration

    probally a bad tire,quick way to check that is rotate the front to the rear if the problem is gone then its the new tire, if i remember right if its pulling to the left it is prob the right side tire that might have a broken belt, could also be a bad rim.good luck

    Unknown wire connector

    You could run it thru the firewall into the dash and hook up a toggle switch there. Or, you could get it fixed correctly. I would choose option B. Good luck mechanical-idiot

    Fortunately the codes provided by the dealer shows the Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor - Circuit Current Out of Range code so hopefully that is the right one.

    Which refrigerant?

    What does coolant have to do with refrigerant? They are two separate fluids?

    Engine cooling upgrade

    Flush the system, put in new coolant, maybe put in a new thermostat depending on your year and mileage. Never had an issue with ours even in the extreme heat of summer. If the temp reading is in the normal range, don't worry about minor fluctuations above and below what you consider "normal". If it gets to the point of nearing overheating to potentially cause engine damage, it will let you know.

    Maybe try cleaning the throttle body. Or run a can of lucas fuel injector cleaner.

    Engine cooling upgrade

    My experience is the radiator is perfectly fine for extremely hot weather. Drove across the Mojave with a bike and surfboard on the roof at 117 F without any significant engine temperature increase. Like the others have stated, rather than try to upgrade, first make sure what you have is working properly. Peace.

    Battery Tray Corrosion.....

    So I just had my eighth battery in a car that 10 years old; I’d really be upset if six of them wouldn’t have been covered under warranty, but that’s another story. So after I picked up from the dealer, I decided to look at the battery to see how old it was. A quick inspection found the battery tray had corroded to the point of almost failing to hold the battery in place. My biggest disappointment was that the dealer was always trying to sell me extras I didn’t need, but never suggested replacing my battery tray. Much to my surprise, I found that it simply bolts in place and could easily be replaced. So I ordered one, and ordered paint used to protect battery compartments on small aircraft, after a couple of coats with the special paint I had a new battery tray installed for about $150 (the paint is kinda expensive for a quart). Since the battery on the Journey is tucked up in the drivers side wheel well, nobody hardly ever sees it. Next time you have your wheel off, check your battery tray. Happy Motoring.

    Are you experiencing driveability issues? If you just had the battery replaced, clear the codes and see if they come back.

    Battery Tray Corrosion.....

    We have our car rust checked every year, so we don't have to worry about the battery shelf, since it is coated for us. If we didn't get it done, I would buy a can of Rust Check and coat the damn thing myself. I have a can of it that I spray on the hinges etc. Love that stuff. mechanical-idiot

    I def get more per tank, but the majority of my miles are highway or a combo of both. Check the brakes like mentioned. Keep us up to date with this one.

    If they vibrate on the back, then it is a broken belt or an imbalanced rim/tire. mechanical-idiot

    Battery Tray Corrosion.....

    Glad to see you got that fixed. Stealerships are horrible with that up-sell every time you come in for something, no matter how minor. Good advice on checking the tray next time the wheel is off.

    If the code for the BCM is coming up, it is likely trying to tell you that it should be replaced. Check a salvage yard for a used one. mechanical-idiot

    iv seen a car will start when in neutral but then when you put in drive it will die, so i believe it is the battery temp sensor, not surer if there is a way to test it.. good luck google on the battery temp sensor might be some info on you tube

    Your HFM module (blue tooth) could be draining it. Common problem. Pull fuse 131 under the dash on the passenger side. Charge it. If it does not go dead, then that is your problem. mechanical-idiot

    SERVICE AWD SYSTEM ON 2015 JOURNEY

    Well, a bit more info would help. Does it crank? Original battery? Did you try to jump it? Which engine, options, key or fob (yes it matters) etc. and EXACTLY what you have done to try to start it.... Kinda hard to know what’s going on sitting in Chicago...
