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.

I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger and my engine light is staying on and my car is driving fine, how can I get this light to turn off so I can use my remote start?


The check engine light is telling you the computer has found a problem with the performance of the engine that can affect fuel mileage or emissions. You have to have the computer scanned for trouble codes, fix the problem, then clear the codes from memory to make the light go off. An auto parts store can scan the computer for free but the light will stay on until the problem is fixed.
The problem with the wipers could be the delay part of the motor.

I have a 2008 dodge avenger, after I finished making oil change the engine light went on. What would it be the probvlem?


The oil change light is usually mileage related, and just needs to be reset. It does not know if oil was actually changed or not. Check your owners manual, or stop by a quick lube place for directions on how to reset it. This is not a problem.
