SOURCE: 1998 dodge avenger tranmission control solenoid

Below the link for Chrysler/Dodge auto-transmission manual

Solenoid mounts outside the transmission, so you do not need to remove the transmission to install. It should be located between fuse box and air filter housing on the top of transaxle case and right next to transmission controle module.
I hope his step by step procedure will work for you. It is not hard at all to replace the solenoid. There are three 10mm bolts. You will also need to remove the input speed sensor. One thing to look out for is not bending the gasket when installing the new solenoid:

  1. Disconnect battery negative cable.
  2. Remove air cleaner assembly.
  3. Remove electrical connectors for transmission control module (please refer the manual I send you and website).
  4. Remove the Transmission Control Module
  5. Disconnect and remove the input speed sensor
  6. Disconnect the transmission oil cooler lines. Cap off hoses and fittings to prevent foreign matter intrusion.
  7. Disconnect the solenoid/pressure switch assembly connector.
  8. Remove the three solenoid/pressure switch assembly-to-transaxle case bolts
  9. Remove solenoid/pressure switch assembly and gasket

Keep everything clean to prevent foreign materials to go inside
  1. Install solenoid/pressure switch assembly to case using a new gasket
  2. Install bolts and torque to 13 N·m (110 in. lbs.)
  3. Install 8-way connector and torque screw to 4 N·m (35 in. lbs.)
  4. Uncap and install transmission oil cooler lines.
  5. Install input speed sensor and torque to 27 N·m (20 ft. lbs.)
  6. Install Transmission Control Module
  7. Install air cleaner assembly.
  8. Connect battery negative cable.

P.s. 1. You can fine some clips on at least for similar cars
2. Also at you can find the component location for your car and repair guide
3. Also there is a link for Mitchel1 online manual useb by US mechanic 1 week subscribtion is

Good Luck and happy fixing

SOURCE: 2008 Dodge Avenger. Cannot shift gear out of

Try the override - remove cup holder rubber liner and stick your finger in the hole to depress the button. See owners manual.
If this doesn't work than your tiny spring has come off the broken hook on the shifter assembly. Replace it by drilling a small 1/16th hole in the pink lever and reattach a new spring. better than a new one with the cheap tiny hook that keeps breaking.

When the engine light came on the correct procedure to follow is to have the fault codes read to find out what sensors failed .

My Electrical Power Outlet below the climate controls on my 2009 Dodge Avenger is not working. The manual says it is protected by a fuse, but is very unclear as to where this fuse is located in the fuse...

In your fuse panel the number 11 fuse is for your power outlet. it is a 15amp.fuse( lite blue in color). you can find your fuse panel layout in the owners manual chapter 7. hope this helps

I have a 2009 dodge avenger with a 2.4 L engine. With the car running and my foot on the brake I can't get the shift lever to move outta park. Why?

There is a shifter lock computer (PCM) which could be malfunctioning....
There should be an override button at the base of the shift position locator... press that and you can shift it into gear...
The system has a switch on the brake ( paired with the cruise control switch I believe) so , it could be that too I suppose
