  1. Wheel Specifications

    NO! 16 inch rims were used on old Journeys that has smaller brakes pre 2013. On your 2015 they won't go over the brakes. The 17's will fit. That's what I use for winter tires, rather than my 19's, as 17 inch winter tires are a lot cheaper. 17 inch Caravan rims are exactly the same as the Journeys.
  2. Just found this on the Consumers Reports website. Haven't tried nor likely will. Might be useful to someone. https://www.consumerreports.org/automotive-technology/how-to-reboot-your-cars-infotainment-system/ How to reboot your infotainment system (their headline) FCA (Includes Dodge, Jeep, Ram) Uconnect with 8.4-inch screen (2013-2019) • Put the car into accessory mode by hitting the ignition button but without having your foot on the brakes. This turns on the accessory systems of the car. Then hold the temperature up button (red) and the temperature down button (blue) simultaneously for at least 8 seconds. The engineering menu should appear. The last menu item on the first page is Reset Radio. This will reboot the system. Uconnect (2013-2019) • Press and hold down the mute and source button for up to 10 seconds.
  3. Not aware of any. This charity has been around in Canada since 1918. https://www.waramps.ca/home/
  4. Hey folks, a free plug for the War Amps Charity Key Tag Service in Canada. Was out mountain biking last summer and didn't realize I had a hole in a cycling jersey pocket and the key fob and keys fell out somewhere on my 2 hour ride. Ended up using the spare and did check the cost to replace from the dealer vs a locksmith company (within 5 bucks of each other). I had The War Amps Key Tag attached to the keys and almost a month to the day, a courier comes to my door with a package. Some kind soul found the keys, followed the instructions to drop in a Canada Post mailbox, and they found there way to The War Amps office, and they then forwarded them to me using the registration number with my confidential info. I was most pleased and tripled my annual donation immediately! Been using this service for years and a faithful contributor. It will continue.
  5. If I get the letter I'll get it done. Otherwise, I could care less. Big red runs perfectly and only just passed 50,000 km. I don't drive much.
  6. Here is the story on the Consumers Report website. Looks like it will be in Canada and the U.S. https://www.consumerreports.org/car-recalls-defects/fiat-chrysler-recalls-vehicles-for-excessive-emissions/
  7. Bosch Rotors - lucky or not?

    Get ceramic. The dust they give off is minimal and doesn't show unlike the metallic.
  8. What grinds your gears?

    13 hour airplane rides across the Pacific. UGH.
  9. New Lights

    https://www.carid.com/2014-dodge-journey-headlights/ Even though it says 2014. They fit all years
  10. Moisture Issue Won't Defog

    The best thing about -25C is that salt becomes inactive and your car stays clean! Us Prairie people and our cars are quite hardy!
  11. I use premium for the cleaning properties and the fact that it does not contain ethanol. Not a fan of that. Since I drive so little (only about 10,000 km's per year) the cost difference doesn't bother me. Here, and in most places, regular and mid grade has ethanol in it. On a side note, I've had more than one small engine dealer tell me to only use premium without ethanol in small engines like snowblowers, lawnmowers, weed trimmers and blowers. Premium stores better, and personally I had nothing but trouble with a carb. on my gas weed eater, but on the dealers recommendation switched to premium and the issues disappeared. H.P.
  12. Winter Tires

    Any auto wrecker will have lots of 17 inch wheels that will fit. Just ask for Journey or Caravan wheels. They are the same. H.P.
  13. Are 17" rims interchangeable for different years?

    17 inch from any year are OK. NOT 16 inch.
  14. Ugh. Winter

  15. Ugh. Winter

    Visiting. Second time. Got an apartment for a month in Port Douglas. I will avoid the stingers, salties and assorted spiders and snakes. Terrified of fish with teeth. LOL H.P..
