2012 Dodge Journey Problems

Vibration on Brake Application

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.

Body control module

My rear wiper only works in reverse! One of the back lights are completely out even though we changed bulbs radio works only when truck is open and back lock doesn't work at all. I had a mechanic run the codes and he couldn't even connect to see what codes were pulling!

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.

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.

2012 Dodge Journey Reviews

I HAD DODGE JOURNEY 2012 SE PLUS 2.4L. THE TRANSMISSION JURK WHILE CHANGING FROM PARK TO DRIVE AND FROM DRIVE TO REVERSE AND FROM REVERSE TO PARK. DEALER NOTICE THE PROBLEM AND UPDATE THE SOFTWARE BUT THE SAME PROBLEM IS THERE. THE SUSPENSION MAKES NOISE WHEN IT GOES TO SOME BUMP AND IT IS HARD SUSPENSION. ENGINE NOISES COME IN THE COMPARTMENT. BAD ENGINEERING.
