    my 2008 dodge avenger has the same problem, The emergency light will come on when I am going down a steep hill or when I am brakeing for a Red light. I was told I needed Back brakes? I am tired of putting brakes On this car.. this will be the 4rh time.. I am not very happy with this car. The paint is bubbling up on the hood and side vendors too. They wont fix that problem either. Man, I love Dodge but they sure are putting a bad taste in my mouth. I have more problems with this dodge then any of the others I have own. Please someone it this normal? I dont think so.

The wire that connects to emergency brake is loose, and grounding out. It probably just needs to be tightened up.

Abs, esp, brake and traction light on


Oh I have exactly the same problem right now!! Machanics are saying the back LH speed sensor is faulty however when they checked the computer there were no error codes. The braking issue has stopped but warning lights have been on constantly for three weeks now :( Its due to go back to the machanic in a few days so they can have another look.... What ended up being the problem with yours?

When I press the brake pedal only the left brake light comes on. The bulbs are good and the fuses are all good. Replace the right light modual but still no help. this is on a 2008 Dodge Nitro


How do you know the bulb is good? Even if it uses the same bulb as the tail light it is always a different filiment. But if you tried replacing the bulb and the fuse than it has to be the wiring. If it's a 2008 it should be covered by the warranty, I would bring it into the dealer.

2008 dodge nitro change oil light how to turn off had oil changed did not go out


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.

Day light


turn the headlights on and off until the nitro beeps at you, that means you have manually over ridden the head lights. I own a Chevy S-10, and I can mash the button 5 times and the lights will shut off.
