Question about 2007 Dodge Caliber SXT Sport Hatchback

1 Answer

Car won't start

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.

SOURCE: 07 caliber.cranks and idles. won't come out of

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.

07 grand caravan sounds like a rod knocking, but look at them & no sign of worn out bearing.

Without actually hearing the noise, it is hard to help. You can try starting the engine and disconnecting one plug wire at a time to see if the noise diminishes when the plug wire is disconnected and this will help isolate the cylinder causing the noise and then diagnose from there.

Car won't start

You should be able to jump start the engine as long as you are very careful hooking up the cables.
You might want to check battery voltage with a meter first.

2007 dodge caliber will not start. engine turns,but no crank. will not start with cable jump

Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the site. When you have a vehicle that will not start, there could be many possible reasons that it don't. You should always check your fuses and wires to the battery first. This is easy and almost anyone can do it. Make sure your battery has a good connection and the terminals are clean and in good shape. If your battery terminals are dirty, it can cause starting problems. A simple fuse can also keep your vehicle from starting up. Your engine has to get fuel to it in order for it to start. Make sure your fuel pump is kicking on when you turn the key on. You should hear a buzzing sound for a second or two. If you can't hear well and you have a friend, it is easier to listen at the gas cap area. Take your cap off and have someone turn the key on but not all the way to start it. If you hear a noise, your fuel pump is working. A clogged fuel filter can cause your car not to start as well. Of course, there are many other things that it can be, but these are simple checks that you can do yourself. This will begin your process of elimination, to find and solve your problem. Anyone can check these steps. In the long run, it could save you a lot of money my friend. The more you learn about the car, the more you are prepared for future problems. You can save thousands of dollars in a lifetime by working on your own vehicle

Battery light turned on. Lost power steering and AC.

You broke your serpatine belt. Needs replacing. It's a $50ish part and easy to do if you have a diagram under the hood of how the belt fits. But if it was "rattling" for a couple of weeks take it in for crying out loud. Let the mechanic look it over to make sure your lack of vechile care didn't destroy anything under the hood.....
