Im having a similar problem with the engine light being on-

I have a 2008 dodge avenger basically brand new. my gas cap today wasnt put in right it was basically loose before i realized that it was loose my car was telling me about my gascap i paid no mind to i thought it was a false alarm or something . The next day The engine line was on. I later parked checked my gas cap and it was nearly on it was very loose i guess its because too much air went inside the gas tank that the engine light went on, which signifies and its obvious that it was the gas cap that caused that problem.

Most vehicles will sense that the tank is not sealed, will turn on a light. Depending on the make of car, may have to drive several hours, several starts, etc. before it resets itself after you correct the gas cap problem.

How do i clear the check engine light on a 2011 dodge avenger

You can go to Autozone and ask them to put on the code reader and find out what the problem is and diagnose from there. Once defined , you can then repair the problem (hopefully) and the light will go out.

Sometimes it can just be as simple as the gas cap needs to be taken off and then put back on and make sure to get 5 - 10 clicks on it. See if that helps.

Gas cap light is on in my 2009 dodge avenger

basically what you need to do is to check the oil gascap see if it has any type of dirt or anything under, if so just clean it off. the gascap should be on top of engine where it says OIL. or the gas cap could be rusted and may have to be replaced

About a month ago my gascap light came on on my 2008 dodge avenger. I replaced it with a locking gascap and about a day later it went away. Today it came back on. What could the problem be?

these are sensitive to the gas cap being installed properly and tightly,if not then the light will come on,this is a system that performs a pressure tested system under the right conditions to make sure there is not a leak in the vapor system of the emission system

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.
