Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT Sport Hatchback
My battery and engine light was on in my 07 caliber sxt. I was hearing a loud noise under the hood sounded like a truck. Someone said that it could have been my belt. I had the battery and alternator tested and it was ok and good. I pulled up in my driveway and put the car in park and it cut off. I turned the key to try to crank it and nothing is happening. My radio and lights were working fine and now the radio won't come on and the lights are dim. Please help me someone.

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 ****.

First try this.turn the key to on position in ignition and then press the brake pedal and see if brake lights coming ON,.If the brake light is not coming on then problem is faulty brake light switch.A very common problem for Dodge on this issue is the Brake Light Switch. It has three internal switches controlling various functions of the vehicle. It's main function is to control operation of the vehicle's brake lamps. Other functions include speed control deactivation, brake sense for the antilock brake system and brake sense for the brake transmission shift interlock. This switch is located at the top of the brake pedal arm, under the driver's side dash.
Replace the switch.------------ But if brake light is coming On, then check the fuse.--------- check fuse #14 in the fuse box under the hood and to the left side of the engine compartment. If it is blown replace it and see if the car will now shift out of park.
