Dodge Journey The Remote Keyless Entry System May Not Work intermittently

(72 reports)

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.

Keyfob works intermittantly, whether trying to unlock, lock or use the remote start. Also starting to have intermittent issues with it not starting! Dealer suggested firmware update, but that did nothing to help. Also, it's not the keyfob battery, already replace that with a brand new battery (in both keyfob's) with no change! -
Incident 1. Key FOB won't open car. Took out spare key, unlocked door, alarm goes off, get in car, shut door, FOB in ignition, turn, car starts, alarm stops. Incident 2. Get in car, put FOB in ignition, turn, no power, no dash gauges, and car does not start, can not put into neutral. Take FOB out, use it to lock door, then unlock door while sitting in car, put FOB back in ignition, turn, car starts. Incident 3. Get into car, put FOB in, turn key, all dash lights work, get a click sound, no start. Put car into neutral, car starts. What a journey in a journey! -
I keep getting key not detected and vehicle will not start -
I get the "key not detected" message a lot. Also get stuck outside my car a lot which is very annoying. I have changed the battery, that isn't the problem. -
Car will not start and gets a "bad key" reading. -
Remote Key will not open back and the unlock button will not open back. Also sometimes no doors will open and other times the doors will not lock. -
sometimes the car won't start,when you turn the key it won't start. Then there are days when I have no problem starting. I was wondering if it could be either the starter or the WIN module. I have been able to put the car in gear without starting and start it. there are also weird things happening, sometimes the window won't respond but if I turn the car off and then on again, its back to normal. Sometimes the panic button will go off when I am pressing the door open button. Sometimes when the car won't start i tap the gear stick and it starts. The battery up until recently maintained its power throughout all of the bad starts, now it has a reading of weak battery. I also hear a click behind the ignition (where the key goes). This has been going on for about one year. It seems to be getting worse. I have not had it fixed yet. I can't afford to get the starter and WIN module replaced. -
intermittent issues with remote (start/lock / unlock ) -
having lots of trouble using the key fob to open my car. I have to push and push the button before I finally get the car unlocked. Dealship told me nothing was wrong. I beg to disagree. It wasnt them standing in the rain with the grandkids waiting for the stupid car to unlock. -
"BAD KEY" message, car will not start. Called the dealer regarding the issue. They suggestion I bring car in (tow it). The Diagnosed cost ($100), towing fee($75), the service tech said no more than $500 at most, depending on the diagnose. No resolution at this time. -
One remote does not work. changed battery. No effect. -
Intermittently will not not start (cannot find key). -
Key fob doesnt always unlock doors, ignition start fails -
keyless will not start vehicle, what do i need to do -
frequent battery changes to the key fobs because they would not open the vehicle -
Key would not recognize in ignition. Repair man said problem would be solved by a manual key (yes I got a key for my fancy dancy car)... Works well, have not had the problem again... of course I now do not have keyless entry. But as long as I can get in and the car works, I'm ok with that. BUTTTTTTTT when I unlock the door with the key, the horn starts honking until I get the key into the ignition. Very irritating for the neighbors early in the AM, but more importantly it is EMBARRASSING everyone thinks I am breaking into the car. PLEASE is there a way to turn the alarm/horn off? I just want my car to work! How can I make it not honk? -
No solution yet - second key fob will sometimes lock the doors, but that is it. New battery was no help. -
key fob not working at all. have to unlock the door with the "key", turn off the alarm and then it will recognize the key fob. having the issue with both key fobs we received when we purchased the vehicle as well as a third fob that we purchased and had programmed through Owatonna Ford. its not the key fob its the WIN module -
Intermittent not starting or hard door entrance with keyless system. Have been put down several times. Even carried to dealer. They only charged my battery which they said was only low. This has been going on for a year now. Even got key away from car on dash although fob(key) was in the car. -
doors won't unlock without press button several times on the key fob!!! -
