Question about 2010 Dodge Journey
It has been in the single digits in outside temperature. I have noticed that my temperature gauge has been reading at almost half and then my fan kicks in as if to cool the radiator down. I cannot get any heat while the car is just sitting there. But after driving about 10 minutes then I have heat.
You need a new thermostat by the sounds of it, or the heater core is plugged.

My daughters car did the exact same thing. Lights and all. I replaced the pump twice and both relays (auto shut down and fuel pump relay). Very frustrating indeed.
The 1994 recall (see below) is right on! Right behind the engine block intake (the long aluminum block on top) is a tie rod that connects from the rack and pinion to the wheel. On top of the tie rod is a bundle of wires that are wrapped in cloth style tape, just resting on the rod. As the vehicle is driven, the steering rod will rub the wires (as the wheels are turned) thus causing a possible short. My daughters was. I used liquid tape, wrapped in tape and used zip ties to lift off the rod. I have driven it alot and have not had an incident yet!

SOURCE: no visable leaking, always smell
If you smell coolant then there is a small leak, it is most likely the water pump shaft seal, look for stains, coolant leaves a white powder when it dries, look on the underside of the hood for any coolant stains from it been flung there by the spinning water pump. Also have a radiator pressure test run, good insurance aginst an engine overheat if leak worsens, engines are very expensive to repair if overheated badly.

I had the same problem. I replaced the temp sensor and used a 2 pair of wires to test the fans. The fans were worked. The problem was the wire connection to the control module.
