2009 Dodge Journey Problems

Brakes -- Verified

A pulsation may be felt in the brake pedal or steering wheel on brake application. This is commonly caused by warped brake rotors. The front rotors are commonly at fault but the rears should be checked also. Warped rotors will need to be re-machined or replaced to correct this concern.

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

A whine type noise may develop from the power steering pump. Our technicians tell us a revised pump and powertrain control module (PCM) software update are available to correct this concern. Additional, an updated power steering reservoir is available for some models.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

Dampness inside the vehicle may be the result of a water leak, most commonly caused by improperly sealed body seams. Once the source of the leak has been determined the affected area should be properly sealed.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The remote keyless entry system may not work intermittently. Our technicians suggest upgrading the software in the wireless ignition node (WIN) to correct this concern.

Exhaust & Emissions -- Verified

Rattle/howl/drone/buzz type noise, resonating from the rear of the vehicle may develop. This sound can be heard at approximately 2100 rpm and may only last for a few seconds. Our technicians tell us that exhaust clamps and brackets should be checked for proper torque and heat shield clearance should be inspected if this condition occurs.
