Why does my airbag light come on

hi, you need to take your vehicle to a manufacturer's service department to have this diagnosed. They will have electronic testing equipment to plug in and check the issue. It is, sorry fr stating the obvious, better to go and see them the next time the light stays on. It is not advisable to ignore such a warning as a faulty air bag can be hazardous
Good Luck

My 2008 dodge avenger while driving loses power and electronic throttle control system light comes on and flashes

Alternator failing (way to check start car disconnect positive to battery if car dies its alternator)
or battery no longer holding charge
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

Electronic throttle control light

The car has to be diagnosed

There is a good chance that the
ETC light has nothing to do with
the actual reason it set a fault code

On a ford, you have bad ignition coils that
don't ground out in the computer & set etc

The dealers & shops throw all sorts of parts
at the unknown & have no idea what happened
or how to diagnose.

You need to have a shop or dealer use the codes
& other reference material properly, to find the issue

I had the same thing happen to me about a week ago and it was the Electronic Throttle Control. It will stick due to carbon build up. Car was towed to the Dodge garage and ETC replace and carbon cleaned out. Cost me $658.00. Yep that's a hefty price to pay but so far no other problems.

I have a 2008 Avenger and have recently seen a red warning light come on that I can not locate in my owner's manual. It looks like this ) ( with a lightning bolt in the middle. What is the problem?

It is Electronic Throttle Control, it is driveable but could get worse. May need to go to dealer. Check the Avenger forum, maybe somebody knows more how to fix it
