2011 Dodge Journey R/T 4dr SUV (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
Review
I am posting this providing information due to problems with the dodge journey. People say it fails to start when turning the key yet all the lights come on, (dead battery syndrome), if you have an immobolizer equipped remove it , they new immobolizers are built so they can be activate which shuts down the vehicles . This is a problem because it malfunctions causing the ignition not to engage and loss of power as some say, the dead battery syndrome also happens on my 2001 dodge ram 1500, my brothers 1994 dodge neon and the work truck a 2005 gmc sierra all have immobolizers and this is what is causing the problem. Do not do it all the time but the odd time when u least expect it!

Hello, We own a 2009 Dodge Journey, I've been trying to figure out for months what the problem is with it (it won't start). I've been through everything from a WIN module, to a wiring harness, to a bunch of other tricks to get her going when it decides not to start. The immobilizer sounds like the most probable issue. I was wondering if you had any more knowledge about repairing it, can you just remove the immobilizer? Is this a dealership job or could someone tackle it on their own? Would I need to re-program the ECU? I'm not too bad with cars but the onboard computer stuff usually stumps me. Be great if you could respond here or email me at rmilley@student.ednet.ns.ca Thanks a lot, Ronnie
