What do you mean by 'ark my car'? If you intentionally created an electrical arc with battery or alternator wiring, as was a 'common practice' with old dc generator type systems to set polarity, you may have damaged your alternator, or worse, your PCM. Do you have a check engine light, and have you read the codes? You may want to consider having a qualified mechanic check out your electrical system.

SOURCE: Battery changing

Ok, trust me on this one, take the drivers side tire off and remove the forward inner fender panel. If you try it without removing the tire, it is just a royal pain.

It is in the drivers side fender well in front of the tire, it is mounted to the front frame rail. You have to remove the plastic fender lining to get to it.

SOURCE: 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.

Where is the alternator fuse in a 2008 dodge avenger?


What size engine ? Could have came with three different one's ! 2.4 , 2.7 , 3.5 L Has a fusible link , do you know what that is ? The heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator should have battery voltage . Check it with a volt meter , easier then checking at the starter , because the wire comes from the main power feed from starter . This charging system is computer controlled , your best bet , take it to a qualified repair . How to test an alternator Chrysler Dodge Jeep

Alternator failing (way to check start car disconnect positive to battery if car dies its alternator)

Check all vehicle filters replace if nessary
Throttle position sensors will give a bucking sensation if they go bad and rpm's would erratic or stale at either high or low end of spectrum
Bad fuel could cause these symptoms
A cold car not properly warmed can also cause the symtems above
These things are things to look at why your car doing what its doing

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?

What do i do if my 2008 dodge avenger message says key ignition and does not start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

2008 avenger,4cyl Engine rattles, oil change did not help. It also seemed to be shifting later so did a tune up and had the trans. flushed. 100000 so it was time. Motor almost seems to howl, but is running...


My engine rattled and i had the same things done, the oil change and tune up because i had 83000 miles. That didn't fix the problem and after spending $120 the mechanic said it was the alternator because there was some build up on the side of it which he said is a way to figure out if its going bad or not. Anyway this cost me almost $700 to fix now the rattling noise is gone and all is good. The mechanic said that it was ok to continue driving the car but if the alternator went completely out be prepaid to have it towed once your battery charge is gone.
