  1. That's what those things do!!! You learn something new all the time.
  2. You got it done, and probably felt great afterwards. I wouldn't think the techs doing recalls disconnect it at the battery end. I believe they disconnect it in the engine bay (?). Good job.
  3. There aren't always signs before a transmission goes out. I was on a trip in my Ford and half way back home, in the snow, I had no power. Going up and down some roads, no power was really bad. I traveled 100 miles rev'ing the engine and hitting a top speed of 35-40 mph (it was horrible). I got into the first big city and limped into a transmission shop. They gave me a price of $7000, but I would have to leave it for 5 days. I ended up towing it home ($230 - no way I was going to pay that price). Anyway, long story short, I took it a local trusted transmission shop and they told me it was an $11 part in the transmission that controlled the vacuum, but the labor was huge. In came YouTube and a bunch of videos, a day of removing the seats and center panel to get to the part, and repair the $11 part. No transmission issues for the next 4 years I owned the car. Take it to a couple of transmission shops you trust and good luck.
  4. It's not just Dodge

    I am a little confused. Are you referring to the bad service at the dealers, or an issue with these cars? Your post is a little vague as to what the subject is about. I've had great experiences with the dealers (currently Dodge and Ford), and they have gone out of their way to answer all of my questions. Maybe I'm one of the lucky ones.
  5. 2010 Dodge Journey No power

    I would change the alternator...huh, anyone agree? JK...I am curious as to if you figured out how to get the key out of the ignition? You mentioned you jumped it, so I am guessing it dislodged?
  6. Transmission being replaced

    So in the big picture of things, this was a good ending type of situation minus the bus fare. I would guess the roof cargo had nothing to do with it, just something that needed to be done for the transmission.
  7. 4.3 Climate Control screen does not work

    Like OhareFred mentioned, these are single units with all of these controls integrated into the radio unit. If you replace it with an OEM radio, those controls go away. Was this installed at a store, or by yourself?
  8. Hello from Maple Ridge, BC

    Welcome, good looking DJ...could the twin of mine. Enjoy.
  9. Going uphill

    My bet is a worn bushing, but could also be the transmission. But jkeaton could be right.
  10. 4.3 Climate Control screen does not work

    What type of radio did you get installed? I thought the radio and climate control were all tied in together.
  11. New guy here.

    Welcome to the group. What model do you have?
  12. Try this. They are very helpful... https://www.driveuconnect.com/contact-us.html
  13. Sometime wont start Video of problem

    Could also be the neutral safety switch if it starting in neutral. Not too expensive and you can Google how to do it.
  14. I just want to get this clear in my head...are you trying to replace your stock antenna with an after-market antenna (maybe your antenna broke)? Now that after-market antenna does not fit the base on the roof of your DJ? Did you just buy the new antenna and did they claim it will fit your car? It seems like you are doing a lot of extra work for something that should not be that hard. And if you just bought it, it would seem like you should be able to go back to where you bought it to get it all straightened out. If no, I believe a new antenna that will fit is not that expensive. Or am I way off?
  15. That would be my vote/suggestion.
