SOURCE: Dodge Nitro unhappy

lemon laws are a little different in all states, but the basics are- the dealer has your vehicle 30 business days in the first 12 months of ownership. 3 unsuccesful repair attempts at the EXACT same problem, that resulted in you returning with an unfixed problem after thinking it was fixed. i have not seen any problems with nitro's yet. what problems are you having?

You may want to check to see if the recall on the TIPM was performed. All 2010 thru 2012 Dodge Nitros were affected. The TIPM can malfunction, causing the fuel pump to shut off while driving, as well as many other little issues that can make the vehicle seem almost "haunted". The recall was issue September 21, 2014. Here is a link to a page that will explain it.

Battery replaced,alternator good....ignition still not react, no electricity at all...any ideas about restarting the car electronics or similar?

What year ,make an model vehicle ? No electricity at the ignition switch when you try to start the engine ? Trying to understand here what's happening ! Can you turn the Headlamps on an are they bright ? Just nothing happens when you turn the key to the start position ! Is this what's happening ? If so could have a bad relay , park neutral safety switch , wiring issue etc. Now on the other side of thing's if the headlamps do not turn on bright you could have battery cable problems or connection issues !

Our Dodge Nitro was parked for about 5 weeks and when we started it up the ABS, ESP, lights came on, also a picture of a car with squiggly lines under the wheels. Any suggestions?

Make sure the battery didn't expire

2007 original battery ? & not charging it while parked!

Once the computer monitors run, that issue may go away
IF the battery is good & module voltage is good,if not
then you will have to have the problem diagnosed

Maybe you have an abs problem & the rest is just a coincidence

I would run my scan tool software & look at the modules in enhanced data & road test until all monitors run clean,in your

Unfortunately folks don't own professional tools at home
& have decades of vehicle knowledge for a hobby, just me
I guess

What does it mean when the service stability system warning light comes on? What is the stability system? Why does the car shake and vibrate when I press on the brakes?

You need to have your vehicle diagnosed and
repaired, any time, any Malfunction Indicator
Light comes on your dash

You have a possible issue with your ABS Braking System
Do not use it until repaired

Malfunction Indicator light is on. Every thing seems fine except for that, any ideas?

{: ) If the malfunction indicator light is on, it means that your engine modules had detected inconsistencies , specially the emission systems. The engine control modules continuously monitor signals from various sensors and makes constant calculations based on predetermined calibrations. If the feedback gathered is in conflict with its programmed instructions, it will set a code and will request the cluster to turn on the malfunction indicator light.
You may find or feel that your engine is working fine, at the moment, but this issue shoud not be ignored. Small things can become worse if not anticipated earlier.
Tou can try this: Turn off all loads and the ignition switch. key out. Open then close driver door. Wait for 1 minute to reset. Then try to start, and check if the light will go off. If not, its advisable to have your vehicle scanned forn codes to determine the cause.

My factory remote starter won't work, when button on key fob is pushed the parking lights flash like they're suppose to but the engine doesn't start.

Make sure to hit the lock button twice then hold the start button until starting. There can be several issues for a malfunction.If this does not work we can definitely look into other options but the biggest reason for an factory remote start not functioning is the check engine light being on.It completely disables the remote start function. Here is a list of possibilties of why the remote start will not function.
A current vehicle DTC that illuminates the malfunction indicator lamp (MIL)
• The vehicle is in valet mode. • More than 2 remote starts have been attempted. • The hazard switch is in the ON position. • A current hazard switch DTC is set. • The vehicle hood is ajar. • A current hood ajar DTC is set. • The CTD system detects an alarm trigger. • Excessive engine RPM • Excessive coolant temperature • Accelerator pedal position greater than 0 percent • Vehicle not in park • Vehicle theft deterrent malfunction • A current automatic transmission shift lock control system DRC is set. • A vehicle speed sensor signal is detected by the ECM.

My ABS and parking brake light on my dashboard stay on. It used to be just when it was hot outside, but now it is cold and it is still on. I tried pulling the parking brake, but it stays on until I turn...

Why haven't you taken it in, to be diagnosed and repaired?

Any light on the dash, of any vehicle made in the last 30 years,indicates a possible malfunction of a vehicle system. Those check lights are govt mandated,so you get on it quickly,in case it is emission related.

You have an ABS system Failure,Wheel Speed Sensor or some other issues

Trying to replace driver side parking light on dodge nitro

You will need a flat blade screwdriver and a T20  torx Open the tailgate, on the inside of the lamp cluster there are 2 plastic domed heads that look like blanking plugs, with a flat bladed screwdriver pry them out, then grasp the lamp unit and pull it backwards, the 2 balls need to pop out of the plastic sockets and you will have the unit in your hand, on the back of the lamp the bulbholder is held in with 2 T20 torx screws, undo these and pry the holder out of the lamp, get someone to operate the lights and indicators to work out the faulty bulb, re-assemble in reverse order, pat the lamp into the panel with your hand.
