Dodge Journey Dashboard Warning Lights
The Dodge Journey has been on the market since 2011, and the dashboard instrument cluster layout and warning lights may vary depending on the year of manufacture. When the ignition is switched to on/tun, a red airbag warning light illuminates on the dashboard for 4 to 8 seconds.
The engine temperature warning light comes on when the engine is too hot or overheating, and the vehicle security warning light flashes for about 15 seconds when the alarm is arming. If the transmission warning light comes on, stop the vehicle and put the transmission into ‘Park’ or ‘Neutral.’
A flashing check engine warning light may indicate that your engine is misfiring, which may be the case if the engine sounds rough and shakes.
