2008 Dodge Avenger electrical problem

When I turn on my car, the lights go on automatically even when I have them turned off. I cannot turn them off when driving and the high beams will not turn on. Neither will the turn indicator or the windshield wipers. This first began about two weeks ago.

    No function on the lights/turn indicators/windshield wipers. Lights always on with vehicle power; no way to turn off. Started 28 January 2009.

    I've fixed my electrical problem, although I'm not sure how I did it. I removed each fuse and looked at it, then replaced them. Now the turn indicators, lights, and windshield wipers work. Maybe one was loose or dirty.

Dodge 2008 directionals do not work, wipers do not work and lights turn on automatically when car is started


The lights turning on automatically is a feature for most late model vehicles. The directionals and wipers issue would be best to start by checking the fuses with a test light. Check which side of the fuses are hot and then check the other side to make sure you don't have a blown fuse.

2008 Dodge Avenger check engine light


Not sure if this will work for you but worth a shot. I own a 2005 dodge neon. I know the ecu's are different but maybe dodge was smart and made all the cars this way. Insert you key into ignition. Turn key forward until you are at the last position right before the car starts to crank over. Repeat this for a total of three times then on your digital odometer display, you will see a set of numbers displayed. this will be your code for the malfanction(s) that set your check engine light. Like I said, it might not work on your car but give it a shot. If not, rent an obdII scanner and get your codes. Then you know where to start looking to fix your problem.

Reset oil change for a 2008 dodge aveneger


To reset your maintenance reminder system (even if the light hasn’t come on yet), you’ll need to turn your key to on (but don’t start!) and make sure your odometer is on TRIP A. Then key off. Press and hold the Odometer/Trip button. While holding down on the button, key the ignition to on (Don’t start the engine!) The display panel will count down from “------“ to “-“Continue pressing the button until the Trip A is displayed. After this step, you are done.

2008 Dodge Avenger SE - Short in lights but where??


Just because the bulbs look fine, doesn't mean they are. Start with the bulb replacement. If this doesn't solve it, and it has under 36K, it should still be under factory warranty. Shouldn't cost anywhere near $200 either way.
