When she parked the vehicle and turned it off the windows started going up/down by their self and the hazard lights came on. She turned the key on and off a few times to try to get the problem fix. She then just let it set and it stop in about 5 minutes. A woman at the ball field seen what my Journey was doing and stated the she was having the same problem with hers

My vehicle was parked in my driveway and the horn beep once. A few hours later I went beeped again. The next day it started beeping continually, and I had to remove the fuse to stop the horn from blowing. I replace the fuse and had no problems for about a month. Then while on vacation in myrtle beach the horn started blowing no stop. I had to remove the fuse again. When I replaced it the horn started blowing again. I have since removed the fused and tried disconnecting the battery. The horn still continues to blow non-stop.

1. while parked unlocked at friend's home, car automatically locked doors. Keys were inside the vehicle at the time and no one was in the vehicle. Required spare set be brought to open the doors. 2. while parked at home, horn started randomly sounding at 1:30 am. Beeping was random pattern of short and long beeps lasting from a few seconds to a minute and incidents were separated anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. No lights flashed as they would for security system. Checked vehicle for signs it had been disturbed, but saw no indication. After an hour, made decision to remove fuses for horn. While doing so, the horn sounded. Keys were inside the house at that time and no one was near them, so not result of anyone touching them. Then, approximately 30 minutes later, horn started sounding again, even though fuses were pulled. Tried to remote start car to make it stop, but wouldn't operate. Then tried to manually start car, but would not operate. Gave up, apologized to the neighbors (after 3 am by now) and went back to bed. Car did not beep anymore that night. The next morning, had to reset computer to get car to start. 3. while driving to work that day, car randomly started beeping. No contact was made with the horn at that time. Concerned because this is distracting to me and other drivers. Also, having it sound in the middle of the night is not good for me or the neighbors. Saw that this seems to be a somewhat common problem that defies simple repairs and is related to tipm. Dealer and manufacturer contacted.

About 3 months ago my horn started just randomly honking. It didn't matter if it was parked or running. Seems to happen more while parked and in the middle of the night. Now the locks don't want to unlock when I press button on remote or car just unlocks itself. I can go outside holding keys in hand without pressing anything car will unlock or lock. Several incidents so far of windows just randomly rolling down. The honking thing scares me the most especially while in traffic jams when people have road rage! I've gotten plenty of middle fingers because of this possessed car. I've also had the car just shut off at a stop light. It did how ever start immediately. Thanks Dodge for taking my money, disregarding my families safety and giving me a pos!

I bought my car December of 2010 and since owning it has been nothing but issues. I did have some things fixed right after purchase and others they said they saw no issue. My vehicle keeps loosing coolant and was overheating which not burnt my reservoir, my car doesn't always start which has happened since I purchased, door lock doesn't work on driver door, and horn was sounding while driving and alarm was constantly going off until I removed fuse, and fuse box always has a clicking noise. I am not the only one with issues with this vehicle I have seen manau with similar issues and they are all extremely dangerous especially with children in the car. Also my car made a terrible growling noise and I had transmission replaced. Please help get these investigated it's terrible. Never again will I purchase a Dodge or advise anyone to do so. Would be a great car if it didn't always have these issues. Just want problems addressed for all owners so they can enjoy a car they bought with their families.

Journey 6-cyl

  • 90,000 miles
Purchased a pre-owned 2010 Dodge Journey last August. Having intermittent issues with it starting properly. Around November of 2014 the door locks (other than the driver's side door alone) stopped working correctly. The doors would lock every time, but would intermittently fail to unlock anything except for the driver's side. Took it to the dealer (as I have a 2 month old that would prefer not to be trapped in a car I can't unlock) and they diagnosed it back to the tipm. It costs $1000 to replace, and as I said I have a 2 month old and don't have the financial means to repair a part that should never have been an issue to begin with.
