Could be a problem with the anti-theft system, the starter itself, the wires to the starter (they sometimes get loose, and even become unplugged from eng. vibration) Starter relay, neutral switch, there are an awful lot of things it could be. Try to put it into neutral when you start it, (or push very hard on the clutch pedal!) There are too many variables. A battery can do this too. Just because it has 12 volts, it may no longer have amperage available, so your lights would show on, but the starter wouldn\'t do anything

SOURCE: dodge nitro fuel cap

You stated "key in and key out", I'm assuming that your car has a locking gas cap. If that's the case, turn the key to the right (clockwise), once the key stops, hold it in the far right position with your right hand, then grab the gas cap with your left hand and turn it clockwise. That should do it. Hope this helps. If I was able to FixYa, please rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: emergency brake light comes on while driving

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

SOURCE: My 2008 Dodge Nitro has a loud noise coming from

Could be the transmisson chain, take it in for service, and though you did say it sounded like a bus I have heard many bus's and they sounded normal so am not sure what your saying.

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.

08 nitro blows hot air out the passenger side but cold out the drivers side! Was told half the heater core was plugged!! Could that even be possible?


If core was blocked by leaves, etc, I suppose this might be possible, but more likely there is a flapper door not working correctly, due to vacuum leak or bad actuator.

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.

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.
