After buying the car from the dealer we drove home and stopped to get gas. The car would not start. Finally after locking and unlocking the doors it started. Since then every day I drive it I continually have issues with it starting. Once while driving down the road it shut off and stopped. Almost caused an accident. Now I can not even get it started. I have a baby and rhought this would be a perfect vechile. I can nit trust it for the safety of my child and myself. I can not be stranded in the arkansas heat with a vechile that repeatedly has issues with starting or keep running while driving. I have had it checked and no one xan find an issue with the car. Very concerned with safety of car. Very disappointed.

An unknown issue is completely draining the battery. Thus, rendering the truck inoperable. The auto door locks would not work and the vehicle would not start. The first occurrence took place roughly two months ago. The service department at darcars temple hills, MD, tried to convince me that I left my truck running. This time, same exact issue took place.

On several occasions, my Journey has just shut down while in motion. This has happened to me and my husband. Lights go off, engine will not start, cannot push the brake to initialize startup. Online I have found many others with the same problem. Some believe that it is related to the key fab. The electronics key is not being recognized and shutting down the car. I took it to Dodge dealer and of course they could not duplicate problem or get a code. However, the danger of this is unacceptable!! I have two boys under the age of four! will a death have to occur to investigate this!?.

My 2009 Dodge Journey will not shut off when you take the key out. The windows will not go up and down. I brought into a Dodge dealership and had the recall on the ignition switch and the wiring harness in the driver door replaced. My car still will not shut off and windows still don't work but now won't go into gear after dealer repaired. I took it to a second dealer and now after 3 week they are saying I need a tipm for $1700. But they don't know if that will fix the problem? plus now the car will not start. My car is in worse shape then when I brought it into the dealership to repair? I called the corporate office and they are not willing to do anything.
I have had several incidents with this vehicle. On two different occasions as I was driving, as I began to brake, I lost all power and on two other occasions the vehicle wouldn't start and I had to call to get a jump, but was told my battery is good both times. The last incident happened on 4/23/2017 at 8:30 pm est. I got in to start it, but it wouldn't start and I called a service tech, who came out to jump start it, only to tell me that my battery is fine and that according to his equipment working properly. He was unable to start the car; however, I started it without incident this morning, but who knows how long before it wont star or just stops running as I'm driving and I lose lights, brakes, etc.

My vehicle has been in the shop twice in 2 weeks. It started with a transmission issue. I was driving to work last Monday when the car would not shift into gear. The engine continued to idle, but it would not go into the next gear. After having it towed to carmax where it was purchased. They sent it to the transmission shop who later confirmed my torque convertor was faulty. So it was replaced. My truck was in the shop from 9/21-9/25. I was finally able to pick it up on Monday 9/28. Well, I picked it up and it was driving fine. Then all of a sudden yesterday 9/30, I go outside on my lunch break and it will not start at all. The lights, clock, radio, seats. . . Etc all work fine. But, the vehicle will not start. No clicking noises or anything. It is not trying to turn over at all. I took it back to the transmission shop who last worked on it and they can not figure out what is wrong. They say the diagnostic machine is not picking up on anything! I have to wait until the morning to call the Dodge dealership to see if they can now take a look at it. This is very frustrating!!!! I will update again once I know what the problem is.
