Take it to autozone or checker auto, orielly, precision etc. They can scan it for error codes for free. Then you can get a better idea of what is wrong.

Testimonial: "The bad part is, is that I am in California and they don't do that hear (I know that sounds funny, but there was a lawsuit awhile back and they stopped doing scans). The other issue is that the check engine light is not on, just the ETC light. I have hooked it up to a computer but it doesn't come back with any codes."

SOURCE: 07 caliber p0420

Might still be under warranty. P0420 is a catalytic converter efficiency code. Usually this means the catalytic converter is no longer able to do it's job. The computer knows when it is failing and sets this code.

Check with your dealer to see if the catalytic converter might still be covered as it is an emissions component.

SOURCE: need instuctions to change tail/break lights on 07 dodge caliber

popohead, if people thought it was easy, they wouldn't be here asking. Your reply is useless.

To remove the pins, look a them closely. Notice that there's two little notches cut into the cup that holds the pin. Use a flathead on each side to leveredge them out a little. If that doesn't work at all, you can use a pair of pliers to firmly grip the head of the pin and pull straight out. Quick firm pull.

Once the first pin comes out, the second pin should easily come out. At that point, firmly grip your taillight housing, and pull straight back: Don't try to wiggle it out, and don't try to lift it to one side or the other like a trunk or door. Just pull it firmly straight back like you would a dresser drawer.

Once it's out, the little wiring harnesses come out of the taillight housing with about a 1/4 turn, and the bulbs just slide straight out of those.

Good luck!

SOURCE: how do i install a alternator for a 07 dodge

you will need to disconnect the negative battery cable at the battery, remove right front wheel, remove underbody air dam, remove accessory drive splash shield, remove the accessory drive idler pulley. Next loosen the lower mounting bolt, then loosen the a/c compressor and relocate(pull down and to the outboard side of the vehicle to make room for the alternator the come out) next uplug field circuit from alternator and the B+ terminal nut and wire. remove upper mounting bolt on the alternator and lower mounting bolt. relocate the terminal to the other side of the a/c line. Rotate alternator pulley down and slide down and out of vehicle. Yes, its a pain in the ****.

Can anyone help with a 2007 dodge caliber sxt 2.0 it loses comm with computer it also has a po700 161b and the etc light flashing and wont take gas


This one is simply complicated it could be corrosion in several different areas such as the wiring harness in the left fenderwell. the wiring to the "TIPM" totally integrated power module, or a simple software update (not likely) OR what i think the problem is, assuming the above is all checked and ruled out the TIPM itself could be bad. this is a VERY COMMON problem. As an automotive electronic rebuilder i see these a lot from 2006 up 2012 for the same issue if you'd believe it. hope the info helps. Tim
