hows it going john? my names jase, so here is the deal. i had my friends dad fix the flex pipe on my moms 09 dodge journey he had it for a good week and a half and when i finally got the car the back the driver side window stopped working then passengers side window stopped the whole control system just shit the bed the only windows the work are the back ones, then all of a sudden when you hit a top speed of 30 35 the traction control light would flash and the whole car would just bog down and either just shut down completely or lose a lot of power. i had my friends dad who is a mechanic and he did do a scan and three codes came up, one was a voltage code like possibly a bad ground and im not sure about the other 2
