2012 Dodge Journey Problems

The Engine may Overheat Due to Debris in the Cylinder Head Coolant Port

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.

The 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.

Whine Type Noise From the Power Steering Pump

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.

2012 Dodge Journey Recalls

Power 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.

Anti Lock Brake System And Electronic Stability Control System Malfunction

The anti-lock brake system and electronic stability control system may stop working due to water intrusion damaging the control module. Dealers will seal the system wiring harness to prevent water from entering it and will replace the related module and repair related wiring harnesses as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Engine Cover Falls Onto Exhaust Manifold

A cover that mounts to the engine may become detached and fall on the exhaust manifold, resulting in a fire hazard. Dealers will install an improved mounting system for the engine cover free of charge to resolve the concern.
