  1. just keep us informed on what ever happens so any one else that this happens to can have a way think might be wrong i their problem good luck
  2. 2010 Facelift?

    just check with your local dealership on the frt end change and if the parts are interchangeable and just change your bulbs out to led will be the cheaper solution than buying the whole units themselves as they are Expensive and when they quit working they have to be serviced at the dealership only..good luck
  3. since this is in Km is this outside of the power train warranty that is offered by Chrysler?if you are still with in the limits i would take to a different dealership as they should be required to fix it. as you suggest i dont believe the fluid and filter change will solve the problem. maybe dodge care will chime in on weather you are in the warranty range?
  4. Adjust brake pedal height ???

    well thats a great way to get advice by calling names from whom you want help...to be honest their isn't much can be done if the pedal height is not to your liking. i use to work for Chrysler in St Louis and drove the vans off the line and to be honest the ones with adjustable pedals that CAN be ordered(and to be honest might could be redone at the dealership but u am certain the cost would be extremely high) had a feel to them that i didnt like dont know if it was the angle or just the pressure feel when using them..good luck finding a fix for your problem
  5. Relocating the battery

    beside the cost of the cables and also losing space inside the vech, i wouldn't bother with it as i just replace it every 4-5 yrs and i always pick nice weather as i choose when to replace it
  6. Loud bang/clunk when turning

    one or two of our members have had to replace that unit kind of pricey to have it done at the dealership check the forums for more info
  7. i would replace the fob battery first, as i seen in the past the cars battery can turn on the lights or radio but not enough juice to start the car , could be the same with your locks,at least it would be the easy to replace and might save you a bunch of trouble and $$
  8. Dodge TIPM's

    no experience here ,,,,good luck
  9. seen this video on u tube but it is in Italian and there is no translation version but i believe what is happening to my journey. he starts the journey and then the words come up above which mine says i believe check your surroundings and then goes blank as his does , he shows how to replace just the camera and then his rear cam starts working, this is the first u tube i seen showing info other than the broke wire u tube.. just thought id put this here in case some one else has something like this going on ,,,since my knee is still healing i dont want to mess with this right now and also havent stopped by the dealership yet to check on what is covered on the max life warranty that i have...
  10. well the back up camera was starting to mess up sometimes and has almost quit working now not a real big deal since i have the fold up trailer lift for my wife's scooter so when not in use and in the up position it blocks the view but when we are carrying her scooter it does help. now i do have the max life warranty with a 100 ded, but i was wondering if it is just the wires in the rubber boot shorting out or broken if that would be covered???? i was told when i bought the warranty pretty much if it was mechanical it would be covered, i have been going to call the dealership or go by there but keep forgetting, also i have heard that if the wires are broken they replace the wiring loom and is kind of pricey. i have moved the rubber boot around before to see if it would lose reception back when it was messing up but didnt try to remove the boot ,or if the wires break up in the hatch or in the cabin roof area, or do they break inside the boot... has any one had any dealings with this problem that you have seen or fixed yourself i have watched some you tube videos on it but not to much info there??? if the break is in the boot i feel confident that i could splice it back together again but if it would be covered under the max life warranty then might just let them fix it and pay the 100.. thanks in advance
  11. sounds like the ejection assy. is out of alignment if you still want the cd player to work run by a stereo shop and let them work on it otherwise you will probally mess it up more yourself by pulling the cd out. the assy get out of alignment over time from having a cd in 24 -7 and the vibrations of the road traffic
  12. Journey not starting problems

    maybe a bad connection at the battery but i would almost lay odds he will be back in a couple of days
  13. well nice day today,so i tried to see if there was any broken wires in the rubber boot for the back up cam, since i had it added at the dealership after buying the journey the big white cable and the 2 smaller wires ( i guess positive and negative) are not wrapped in the loom as the other wires are , nothing looks broke or cut all the other wires look great, no other problems then just the random working not working of the back up cam. had the parking brake on and put car in reverse while moving the wires and wiggling them didnt make no difference . oh well guess ill wait till something else needs work under warranty and then have them take a look at it
  14. Journey not starting problems

    well 1 yr old battery should be good unless its got a bad cell, first try to start it in neutral to see if its the park switch has went bad ,then i would pull the battery and have it load tested to see if its still good. guess you could check the strength of the battery at the the remote post with a volt meter but if thats good i still do a load test on the battery, there is also a battery temp sensor that is built into of the batter cables and that could have went bad as well,,,,good luck on what you find and please report for others that might have this problem as well
  15. Journey not starting problems

    yes your battery can run the lights ut not enough to start it..you need to have the battery load tested at the auto shop like you said you were going to do??/ look at it this way replace the battery with the best one you can buy its 4 yrs old at least and going into winter time.

    get a new battery
  17. well i really messed up this time

    well the update on my knee with the mri said the tendon had come apart but the patella wasn't broke, so on sept 17 had surgery again. dr comes to me after the surgery says I really dont know what to tell you your tendon wasn't torn apart, looks like it is healing great but your patella is broken so he had to drill 3 holes thur the center from the top to the bottom and then thread stainless steel wire thur the holes and then then twist them tight to hold the bone together, he said i dont know why the mri was so wrong.so anyways i am about 3 weeks past the surgery, the staples have come out and just putting reg weight while walking with crutches, no pt yet but this feels really weird and tight having that wire in there and i can only bend my knee just a bit. good news after a lot of future pain and suffering i should get all my knee flexing back that i will need but usually the wires will have to be removed somewhere down the road about 6- 8 months and they have to cut about the exact amount they had to the first 2 times which is about 3 inches below the knee to about 4 inches above the knee. takes about 20 staples to close it.but right now no real pain just a pain in the arse as i cant hardly do anything i really want to
  18. well i really messed up this time

    thought id put this out there for everyone who thinks they are invincible or it wont happen to me....on july 2 while helping my step son remodel his bathroom we had to gut it and remove the floor to replace some floor joist had that all done and was getting ready to put down the sub floor had to add one more nailing joist and while Joey was cutting the wood for the floor i went in to nail in the piece of wood and just as i was ready to do it i thought oh i need my gloves to be safe and turned to get them in the other room and was stepping on the joist with my left foot and it slipped and i fell down straddling the joist and my right knee hit the joist on the way down. well long story short after the trip to the ER the official dig is a closed displaced transverse fracture of the right patella with damaged ligaments....in layman's term i broke the knee cap horizontally and tore the ligaments in half....this about as bad as it can get having surgery tomorrow and they say i will be in a cast from the cackle to hip for 4-6 weeks and then lots of painful rehab for the probally 3-6 months and then probably have to have surgery again to remove the wires the wrap around the knee cap and then more rehab. should make almost full recovery but they say probally never regain full strength to that leg and or knee with more possible problems with other stuff down the line....being diabetic 2 and 66 yrs old doesn't help...................BE CAREFUL OUT THERE
  19. New member and owner of 2014 R/T

    welcome to the group, had a 2011 mainstreet and traded it in with 70 k on it for my 2014 crossroad and have 94 k on this one only had 2 small problems with this one so far,as you have noticed usually you only hear the bad news from the ones having problems but the good outweigh the bad as you dont hear from them. just take care of it
  20. well since it is so new and the phones are not working right with it take it to a different dodge and explain what the other dealer said and did and see if they can get it working for you..use your warranty
  21. P2302 & P0300 Codes

    check all the wiring going to that coil pack and inside the connectors to see if there is a short or bad wire somewhere that is what happened yrs ago to my daughters van they kept replacing the coils till one of the mechs caught it the connector where they plug together was shorting out sometimes it would run good for a week and then go bad they replace the connector and that fixed the problem
  22. Wet Floor and water in storage bin

    guess its been raining there, leak could be mostly from the ac drain, hard to tell from here
  23. if its just the radio that is a piece of cake you can watch u tube videos on how to do it very simple to do...the problem is knowing if that is your problem and not something else causing it? you might want to go to a stereo install and repair shop and get their opinun and see what they would charge to help you fix the problem, i think that would be your best bet since you seam limited on your skills also check out the salvaged yards/junk yards for a good radio and or the touch screen which is a different part than the radio.good luck and report back what you find
  24. Chilton Manual

    from what iv heard there is an online book or manual but it has to be purchased, other than this is all iv heard, google be thy friend...good luck
  25. no it wasn't me but some one on the site was saying they had one,, best bet would be go aftermarket thur a stereo install shop or pick one up at a salvage yard /junk yard might just be a loose connection or shorted wire on the back side,,,might just want to try the disconnect the battery for 15 minutes and reboot it ...good luck and report back what you find out
