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

SOURCE: My dodge caliber gear shifter wont come out of

I had the same problem on my 2007 dodge caliber. If you look in the manual there are some directions for this, but simply, next to your gearshift on the passenger side there is a circle in the dash. Pry this out and there is a lever to release the shifter. You will need to probably replace a switch that attaches to the upper part of your brake.(It is a cheaply made part with plastic) I can't think of the name of it right now. It cost me about $17 at the dodge dealership for the part. It only takes about 10 minutes to repair, but you should get a mechanic to do it because it has to be adjusted correctly or the part is worthless. I hope that this helps! (you may have already figured it out since it's been 10 days since you posted)

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 ****.

2007 dodge caliber has comm problems but when it lets u in has alot of codes in it but will not acclerate at all

Hi William, I'm glad to help. The P0700 code is a to let you know there is a code in the transmission module it doesn't tell you what it is though. Its possible you could have a transmission problem you'll need to spend the money and have it checked out at the repair shop. The other 2 codes will have nothing to do with the way the vehicle runs. U0170 and U0171 or for the Occupant Retraint Satellite Sensors for air bag problems. Hope this helps and havge an awesome day William!

Why does the etc light stay on or flash

count the flashes and the spaces between flashes .This is a fault code reading (as in morse code) so you have long and short flashes with long or short periods between flashes. Take it to a special service centre and have the code read.
