  1. Dealer mechanics and their BS!

    There is a service bulletin for the whine sound when cold. The idler pulley bearing can make this sound. Mine screeches for a few seconds in extreme cold. The power steering pump makes a noise like it's low on fluid for several seconds after cold start. Finally, there is a moaning sound from the engine after a cold start which lasts about a minute then stops. Been making that since new. The minivans do it too, but strangely, not the Grand Cherokee, Durango, 300 and Charger - essentially the RWD platforms as opposed to the FWD ones. No worries.
  2. Does anyone elses 3.6 feel sluggish?

    Is yours Front Wheel or All Wheel Drive? Mine is FWD and is a rocket ship when floored. Too much power for the front wheels - I get torque steer and really have to hold on. How many miles on yours? Give the tranny time to adapt to your driving style and it should feel more responsive after a few thousand miles of adaptation and break-in.
  3. You’ve likely got a faulty wheel speed sensor. You’ll need to have the vehicle scanned for codes to determine which one. Each of the four wheels has a sensor. If any one sensor fails, the ABS and traction control systems will be disabled as well as the AWD.
  4. Front view

    I , for one, think the color is quite cool! Would love to see one in person.
  5. 2014 Dodge Journey Limited starting problem

    Replace the battery. Regardless of what the test results were, it's at least four years old and is at the end of its useful life anyway. I would be very surprised if you had an electrical drain on the car unless there was some sort of modifications made.
  6. Rear wiper only working when in reverse! Solved.

    We had a 2010 at my shop which did the same thing, and the tailgate wiring was the culprit just like this one was.
  7. Merry Christmas!

    Hi All - Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. I haven't been around here much lately but I still peek in occasionally when time permits! DJ is still going strong at 81,000 miles with no issues. All the best!
  8. Changing country code was the method of enabling DRL years ago on certain Chrysler products. Not anymore. A sales code is required to enable the DRL. I just checked and the code is not available to me, as has been the case for at least two years now, perhaps more. Sorry!
  9. 2014 3.6L Engine Ticking

    Sorry I've been so scarce...life's been busy. All good for the most part, but serious limitations on my Forum time.
  10. Some newer Chrysler products are equipped with Apple CarPlay which displays artist and track info over Bluetooth, similar to what we see with a USB cable connected. The Journey does not offer Apple Carplay.

    Post the last 8 digits of your VIN and I will tell you if the warranty extension applies to your VIN.

  13. My 2000 Chrysler 300M permits the customer to program an additional Sentry (chip) key, as long as there are two keys present which are already programmed. This is no longer permissible with the current FOBIK system. As JKeaton pointed out, the vehicle must be connected to a scan tool (Dodge dealers use a system called WiTech) to program additional FOBIKs. You cannot disable a programmed FOBIK by following the procedure that you outlined in your post. Our dealership charges $36.00 to program a FOBIK and cut the door key. The procedure takes all of about 10-15 minutes to perform. Most places charge more.

    Wow that looks nice! Welcome to the group.
  15. Re-checked just now - no code. At this point I'm not expecting it to come back. It seems to me that FCA has made LMK an option that must be added to the sales order prior to the vehicle being built.
