I bought Journey February 2013. It was working all fine until 2017, when we came back from 5 days family trip. I came back with full load of luggage and found my car not starting. Luckily, I was able to get hold of my friend to jump start my car. I then started to realized that I have to jump start the car if I don't drive for 4-5 days. Eventually it became 1-2 days, and finally ended up no start overnight.
I initially thought this was battery failure, and swapped battery. It did start for few days, but start to see same issues after a while. I had the battery swapped again but did not solve the problem. Then we brought this to dealer. They told us the car does not have any problem, charged us $160 for the cost to check. It did work for few weeks, but starting to see issues again if I leave the car parked 4-5 days.
Now I am debating if I should bring this back to dealer again expecting to be told "no issue" and being charged another $160. I would believe this is related to TIPM issue, but I see many people saying FCA discontinued this part....
