    Thank you for your response ZX2Fast! No code comes up with the scan at all? I did notice that my fluid level on my radiator is almost to the minimum line, wondering if that could be it? MIL light is still on this morning, and vehicle seems to run fine. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Rob

    Never did find out why the MIL light came on? It went off a day or two later. Thinking maybe something got wet in the automatic car wash, car is running fine now. Thanks again for your help ZX2Fast!

There are literally thousands of codes that can cause that light to come on. Auto Zone will scan the computer for free and give you any codes you have. We would need to know the codes to help you pinpoint the issue.

    Some of the cheaper scanners can't pull manufacturer specific codes. You might have to have a shop or someone you know with an Xcal device with a Dodge tune pull the code for you.

    The overflow bottle doesn't always accurately reflect actual coolant level. If your level is low that could set a special code that turns your MIL on but isn't readable by any scanner that isn't loaded with Dodge specific codes.

    Thanks again ZX2Fast, I will bring my car to the dealer and have them scan it. Strangely enough tonight the light just turned off. I appreciate all your help with this problem!!

Gas cap indicator light stuck on; gas cap is on-checked it ten times. 2007 Nitro, about 40,000 miles

There are a number of things that the computer system will reset automaticly, but, it usually requires 2 drive cycles.

A drive cycle includes, accelerating, highway speed, local speed, stopping. If you have already done that, you may try to reset by removing the ground cable, ( black wire ), from the battery for a minute or so.

I hope this helps you.

In order to fix yours problem with EGR system, you must remove and clean inside the EGR valve. Refit all in reverse order. Therefore you can erase ECM memory from faults. After these operations you can run on higway for few miles for engine warm up and exhaust system cleaning!

2007 Dodge Nitro Tail Light Replacement

look at the car manual under maintenance and then rear light bulb replacement. First take out the two hole covers using a flat head to loosen then wiggle and turn by hand to get out. Pull the light unit straight back, and unplug the electrical. Don't break anything.
Then use a star driver (check your misc socket set drivers for the right size). Unscrew the two star head screws and pull this bulb holder straight off the tail light (same direction as screws). Replace the bulb and put back together in reverse.
