Question about 2009 Dodge Journey

1 Answer

Remote starter My remote starter only works if I unlock the doors first. IS that right? I cannot find the guide and I took it in and thr dealership because I couldn't get it to work. They explained I had to UNLOCK the doors first. That just doesn't sound safe to me. Does anyone know if that is REALLY how the remote starter works?

They hooked up the wrong wire it should be hooked up to the lock wire, you need to press the lock button in order for it to start

When I use my remote control to unlock my door it doesn't work. I changed the battery. After I open the door the remote start to work even if I close the door again.


Likely problem? It sounds like you have a pinched power wire somewhere, cutting off power to the remote control receiver when the door is closed, I'd have the dealership check it out.

Remote on keys no longer unlock doors and hatch. Battery lights up on the remote when pressed but nothing opens. Dealership said it is probably the comfort control module? Does this make sense? They tried...


One possibility is the metal contact within theremote has moved and can't make contact or the metal piece broke from use. I had the same issue, took it apart, found the broken piece and took it to an electronics repair shop to solder it. That was cheaper than buying a new remote.

My remote starter just stop working


IF YOU HAD IT DONE BY THE DEALERSHIP THERE SHOULD BE 2 SWITCHES ON THE DRIVER SIDE RIGHT WHERE THE INSIDE DOOR TRIM IS. IT SITS USUALLY UNDERNEATH THE HOOD LATCH RELEASE HANDLE. IN MY CAR ONE SWITCH IS RED AND THAT OPERATES THE REMOTE STARTER AND THE OTHER, BLACK ONE IS AN ALARM ON\OFF SWITCH.

Security will not reset


The disarm switch on the latch inside the door is most likely defective, pull the door panel and test it for proper function.
