Dodge Journey Problems
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
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.
