Customer Question
Have a 2010 Dodge...

Have a 2010 Dodge Journey. When driving home, lights were flickering. Made it home okay, but now car won't start, and key won't come out of ignition.

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

Dashboard and headlights

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Journey yourself? What have you tried so far?

Haven't tried anything. Had it towed to a local garage. I've read all sorts of comments from others about the same issue, so not sure what to think.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I'm not sure what else they might need to know.

if it starts with a jump, then they need to check the alternator, this is most likely the cause,Tim

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
