    Shocked that you did not discover this before you purchased the vehicle...did you buy it sight unseen?

    Heat and flow problem

    Blend doors may not be operating properly. A coolant flush won’t change the amount of air coming out of the vents. It will help with the temperature though.

    JUST go by your local dodge dealership they can look up your vin# and print out everything your journey came with and they can also print out all the maintenance it has rec from any and all dodge dealerships since it was brand new, you can probable even do it yourself online if you google how to do it.... try this web site dont know if it works for Canada www.dodge.com

    Still under warranty? Take it in, tell them to keep it until they can figure it out and get a loaner.

    Had this issue on my 2014 Dodge Journey. The screen turned black, and then the next time it turned on, no detailed maps... I asked the dealer about it and the guy had heard about it and said the only fix was to replace the stereo. That didn't sound right. It took a lot of searching to find all files, but finally found them all (and upgraded to the 2018 maps). I couldn't do the one step update (got half way then failed, but the multiple step worked). I left the 5 files in the main folder and the SQLite folder (unsure if that helps, or if I have anything extra, but it all worked). Here were my steps (PM me if you need an help with files): DOWNGRADE TO CTP13 Downgrade radio navigation to CTP13! This is very important as newer versions have securIty that prevents loading of maps without dealer codes. Take a second USB drive with the gupdate.gcd from CTP13. Turn on the car and hold temp up + temp down + front defrost, after a few seconds dealer mode will pop up. Select garmin recovery update and plug in the usb drive with CTP13 on it. NOTE: After you flash this it takes a long time to load. Let it load and it will still say cannot unlock maps. Just click ok, you may need to restart your car one time to click out of the pop up. — RESTORE MAPS (LONGER VERSION, SHORT VERSION DIDN’T WORK) Step 1: 1) On the USB stick, create another folder in the root named "Disabled". 2) Move the Garmin subfolders (ASR, JCV, & SID) into the "Disabled" folder. Keep the five files (gmapprom.img, gmap3d.img, gmaptz.img, gmapbmap.img and gmapdem.img) and the SQLite folder in the Garmin folder. 3) Plug the USB stick into the car and perform the update. It will take about one hour. You don’t have to keep the vehicle running but rather in the ON position. The vehicle will turn off after 30 minutes, so do a cycle before that time (don’t start the vehicle as it will turn the system on and off again). Step 2: 1) On the USB stick, move gmap3d.img, gmaptz.img, gmapbmap.img and gmapdem.img from the Garmin folder into the Disabled folder. Leave only gmapprom.img in the Garmin folder. 2) Move the JCV folder from the Disabled folder into the Garmin folder (SQLite Folder stays). 3) Plug the USB stick into the car and perform the update again. When this is done, the Junction View is now installed, and the 3D landmarks and time zones are still there. Step 3: 1) On the USB stick, move the ASR and SID folders from the Disabled folder into the Garmin folder. Leave gmapprom.img and the JCV and SQLite folders. 2) Plug the USB stick into the car and perform the update once again. After this is completed, the system is fully updated to the new maps and all features work except for the phone number lookup. ___ UPGRADE RADIO Using the latest files from https://www.driveuconnect.com/support/software-update.html upgrade the radio and GPS software. In September 2018, these files were: CTPMY14.KWI (Radio to 7.09) and gupdate.gcd (CTP17). The first is the only file in the root directory of the flash drive. The second is the only file in the Garmin folder (no other folders or files on the drive). Do one and then the other.

    Transmission being replaced

    Yes. Its good that I purchased the max care lifetime warranty. If I hadn't, it would be a huge bill and the train ticket would be adding insult to injury. I'm happy with the warranty covering the repair. The other thing that I found interesting in my case, was the complete lack of any symptoms. The transmission shifted perfectly up until and even after the check engine light appeared. No shudders, no loss of engine power to the wheels, nothing that I could detect. I'm hoping that this is a case of some sensor doing its job, and I get a good ending. This is not done yet. The dealership in CA still has my DJ. I've had no followup from them. For anyone who has had a big repair at a dealership, you know that snags can occur. This isn't over for me yet. There's also the question of how it runs after the initial install and testing. I'm hoping this new transmission runs for a good long time and does not give me problems in 6 months or something. Anyway, it will be what it will be. . . I will keep the forum updated on how this goes. I'm hoping for long term success. Peace.

    2018 Journey SXT Lacking

    Also, I don't see how you could be "shocked", the sticker clearly lists everything that the vehicle does and does not have. Navigation is a separate option for nearly all manufacturers, and the Journeys radio was designed pre-Carplay. This is why researching vehicles before you buy is always a good idea.

    Look at the window sticker, that should list all features. Hard to believe a 2018 SXT doesn't have those, BUT stranger things have happened.

    Burning coil pack

    my daughter had a problem couple yrs ago with the coil going bad on her caravan sounds like what you are having problems with, they ( regular garage not the dealership) kept replacing her coil said it was bad, lucky thing was the coil was guaranteed for 1 yr and it kept going bad about every 3 months ( this was her postal van) so it started bucking and messing up so she took it in and it ran good for him but he said leave it and let me try it for a couple of days he ended up finding out the wires in the connector were shorting out and thus making the coil go bad he replaced the connector from the wire loom and no more problems for her. have them check for shorted or bare wires. good luck

    You should have warranty left. Force their hand or find another dealer.

    2017 Journey overheats

    Dropped it off yesterday with a nice polite letter on front seat. Got a call today. Cyclinder 3 and 4 is pushing hot air into the resevoir. They are moving to repair head gasket. Didnt see anything on this in reviews before purchasing. But now if anyone else is having overheating issues with the 3.6 this may be your issue as well. Mine fell under the warranty sice it is a year old with 9000 miles on it. I am just glad this may end my nightmare..

    Upgrade touch screen

    Very complicated a lot of write ups on the forum on this subject. Try under upgrading radio... just saw the topic under your posted one installing 8.4 actually doing it...

    So I ended up getting a used 2015 Journey screen from a local wrecker I found it on car-part.com and completing my project. Happy to report that everything clipped in to existing wiring and I now have a complete installation with GPS, Satellite and everything working including the auto Temp controls, rear climate controls and GPS turn by turn in speedometer screen. Oddly I didn't even have to re-connect my cell phone with bluetooth (must be in some other memory module). Only thing I may look at adding is the factory back-up camera - had an aftermarket wireless camera hooked up to may Garmin GPS but don't need that anymore

    If you don’t have the buttons on the front of your wheel you don’t have the enhanced dash display on your car. It’s optional The manual has every option described. You need to apply it to what your vehicle is equipped with.

    Find another dealer or shop. Your post does not contain sufficient imformation for anyone here to help you. Moved to the engine and trabsmission section since this was posted in the AWD section for some reason.

    SOLVED Unplugged drain and all is well. Some dummy bent the cabin filter upon installation and that allowed junk to fly by and clog the drain.

    Custom exhaust question.

    So basically you want to do a custom exhaust like this? I did this when I first got it. Sounds nice start up and take off. As far as actual hp gains I cannot confirm but the wife and I like it so that’s good enough for me. Mufflers 30 each and labor was $50 total custom cost $120. Good luck in what you are looking for I provide pics of my set up. 4 inch slant burnt tip mufflers don’t remember the brand sorry.

    Need help please on Rear Defroster

    Ok yes I checked multiple locations on the actual grid all showing 12 volts but no heating up.. Im stumped as well... It should be working but its not and Ive tried all things I can think of other than Im getting 12volts but the grid isnt heating up... so maybe I need an entire whole new grid as it seems to have no resistance anywhere thus not creating heat
