Some car parts places like AutoZone will plug in a diagnostic tool called an ODB2 and can tell you the error code.
then 'maybe' they will tell you what that means. and if you get a nice person they will reset it although they are not supposed to.
Any rate then google the diagnostic code for solutions.

    I called Autozone and they told me they can't check it for free in California anymore. Took it to someone else and they said "minute evaporation leak". Any suggestions? HELP!

    Also you can buy an inexpensive ODB2 scanner to test and reset the code while you are searching for the leak.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.as...

SOURCE: 2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off ...

Directions are in the book, but you would put the key in and turn it all the way, just don't start engine. Pump gas pedal all the way to the floor 3 times slowly, but it has to be with 10 seconds. Turn key off and when you start again, oil changed chime and warning should not be on. If it is, try again.

SOURCE: The engine light on my dodge Nitro is on

its emissions, go to an auto part store and they should have an obd2 reader and it will scan the emissions system and tell you what is wrong. more than likely an o2 sensor. also check the gas cap and make sure its on good that will make it come on too.

I Have A 2011 Dodge Nitro An the check engine light will flash and I will loose power on the highway in certain spots. What is the problem??


Your check engine light flashing means that the on-board computer has detected a problem, as a result there is now a Check Engine Light (CEL) code which you can have retrieved using a code scanner. Many auto parts stores will come out to your car and retrieve the code for you for free. Call around and find a parts store to do this, or obviously any mechanic with an OBD-II scanner can do the same thing. Once you have the exact code we can help more.

I floored it and it sputtered and ran terrible then the light started flashing then I cut it off tried to reset still the light came on. I put the scanner on it and it turned out to be the coil plug on the #3 cylinder. COIL PLUG. Hope this helps out GOD BLESS!
