2008 dodge avenger car alarm. Car alarm went off for no reason.

Then car wouldn't restart after alarm. Everything lit up inside but won't crank. Disconnected the battery for 15mins. When reconnected blinkers and tail lights flashing. Still wouldn't start. Jumped battery and then car started. Runs well, but the lights won't stop blinking.

SOURCE: My 2008 Dodge Avenger's battery

These cars have become notorious for high battery drain when parked. Coupled with the "exterior illumination" feature that turns on the headlights whenever you unlock the doors remotely, they discharge batteries at an alarming rate when just putted around town. This started happening to ours, and I removed the battery and opened it up (yes, you CAN do that, if you know what you're doing) and sampled the specific gravity. After a low rate recharge, ALL cells were actually a bit on the high side, typical for a cheap OEM battery, but indicating that there was a charge present. After three days of sitting and some cold weather, it wouldn't crank the engine again. The problem appears to be around town driving, along with the unneccesary use of headlights when unlocking, with the high current drain when parked thrown in. Also, the typical cheap Chrysler battery terminals need constant cleaning/burnishing. I highly recommend this and protective grease. Since doing this, I've had some "low charge" incidents, but the car always starts.

Where is the alternator fuse on a 2008 dodge avenger?


look in the fuse block, driver's side, forward corner of engine bay under the hood. I think the lid on the little box has the diagram underneath it, to locate the alternator fuse. Check all your fuses there, too.
I think the small plug-in connector with two wires on the alternator would be for the voltage regulator, wouldn't it?

2008 Dodge Avenger check engine light


Not sure if this will work for you but worth a shot. I own a 2005 dodge neon. I know the ecu's are different but maybe dodge was smart and made all the cars this way. Insert you key into ignition. Turn key forward until you are at the last position right before the car starts to crank over. Repeat this for a total of three times then on your digital odometer display, you will see a set of numbers displayed. this will be your code for the malfanction(s) that set your check engine light. Like I said, it might not work on your car but give it a shot. If not, rent an obdII scanner and get your codes. Then you know where to start looking to fix your problem.

Im having a similar problem with the engine light being on-


Most vehicles will sense that the tank is not sealed, will turn on a light. Depending on the make of car, may have to drive several hours, several starts, etc. before it resets itself after you correct the gas cap problem.
