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 stopped blowing cold air from one day to the next. My mom drove my car today and now it's now blowing cold air when it was driving just fine yesterday. What could it be?

It may be an electric issue somewhere in the circuit but it's going to have to be troubleshooted using a wiring diagram to find the problem.

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

Ok so my gascap light came on about a month ago and i took it in and they said it was the gascap and replaced it and turned off the light. Now its come back on and am not sure what to do. It cost me 75...

The evap system needs to be checked for leaks but the most likey cause is a defective ESIM which is the small white plastic module attached to the canister. It's relatively inexpensive at under $20.00. It has a switch inside that can stick and cause false reports.

The directional light, wipers, brights, are not working

the combination switch may be bad. (wipers, turn signal, hi-lo beam switch)

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

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.

It depends on who you go to and if you want it done right. I went to the Dealership and had them put front brakes on my 2008 Dodge Avenger and it has been in the shop every 2-4 months since then for front brakes. They replaced the entire front brake system and my 08 Avenger is still eating brakes. I finally took it to a friend who owns a auto repair shop he replace the rotors which are total about 115.00 for each from AutoZone and replaced the brake pads for 50.00 so it cost me just parts 155.00 and my Avenger is running smoothly since haven't had problems with the brakes since. Go to Midas and let them change it for roughly 89.00 avoid the dealership at all cost they can run 200.00-500.00 depending on if it is just the brakes pads or if it is the rotors and pads.
