2009 Dodge Journey ProblemsThe Remote Keyless Entry System May Not Work intermittently
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.
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.
An engine overheating condition may develop due to a coolant flow issue. Our technicians tell us that debris may block the cylinder head coolant port at the primary thermostat housing. Removing the debris should correct this concern.

2009 Dodge Journey RecallsPower Steering Hose Ruptures And Leaks
The power steering return hose may rupture and leak at engine start up after being exposed to cold temperatures. Dealers will replace the power steering return hoses, steel tubes and power steering oil cooler free of charge to resolve the concern.
The vehicle's air bags may not deploy as needed in an accident, resulting in increased risk of occupant injury. Additionally, the air bags could deploy inadvertently without an accident, causing loss of vehicle control. Dealers will replace the air bag control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.
If the ignition key unexpectedly moves to the OFF or ACCESSORY position, the engine will turn off. This will depower various safety systems including but not limited to airbags, power steering, and power braking. Loss of functionality of these systems may increase the risk of crash and/or injury in the event of a crash. The weight of extra items on the ignition key ring can be a contributing factor to this unexpected occurrence. Until this recall is completed customers are advised to remove all other items from the ignition key ring. Dealers will modify the ignition switch to correct this concern.
