Steering wheel lock

Yes. It should lock when you turn the steering wheel when the ignition is locked. It should unlock when you turn the ignition on. If not get service.

Need to reset the anti-theft system on a 2010 Dodge Avenger.

the only things ive heard is if you insert the key into the ignition and turn it to on position and leave it for ten min that might reset it or you can try reseting the whole computer by turning the key to on and unhooking the neg battery cable then the pos cable then holding the breaks down or the horn down to drain the remaing juice the engine holds even after the battery is diconnected leave it unhooked with the key turned to on for about 15 min then turn the key off and hook the battery back up see if that works bud!

I have an Rinnai Avenger 25TR heater. The problem is that the heater ignites, it starts, but then it turns off. A red light then flashes and the number 13 also flashes in the bottom right hand corner of...

Paul, the Error Code Fault 13, indicates a Combustion Control Fault. This could mean, not enough gas for safe combustion or to much gas for continued operation. In any event, if requires a service call from an authorized Rinnai Service Technician to solve.

Just in case you have misplaced your Owner's Manual, I have included a link to it, that you can download and print for future reference.

Hope this helped you.

Husband lost key to car and I need to know how I can remove the ignition so it can be replaced

Cirrus, Stratus, Sebring Convertible and Breeze CAUTION
The Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system must be disarmed before working around the steering column. Failure to do so may cause accidental deployment of the air bags, resulting in unnecessary SIR system repairs and/or personal injury.
  1. Disarm the air bag system, as described in Scetion 6.
  2. Remove the upper steering column shroud.
  3. Pull down the lower steering column shroud enough to access the lock cylinder retaining tab.
  4. Turn the ignition key to the RUN position.
  5. Insert a small prying tool into the tab access hole and depress the tab. Fig. 1: Depress the retaining tab and remove the lock cylinder 90908g36.gif

  6. Pull the ignition lock cylinder from the steering column. To install:
  7. With the ignition key in the lock cylinder, turn the key to the RUN position. Depress the lock cylinder retaining tab. Fig. 2: The shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder lines up to the socket at the end of the lock cylinder housing 90908g37.gif

  8. The shaft at the end of the ignition lock cylinder lines up to the socket at the end of the lock cylinder housing. The socket must be in the RUN position for the socket and lock cylinder to line up.
  9. Line up the lock cylinder to the grooves in the lock cylinder housing. Insert the ignition lock cylinder into the housing until the retaining tab sticks through the opening in the housing.
  10. Lightly pull on the ignition lock to make sure it has engaged the retaining tab.
  11. Turn the key to the OFF position. Remove the ignition key.
  12. Install the steering column covers.
  13. Arm the air bag system, as described in Section 6.
Sebring Coupe and Avenger NOTE: For information on removing/installing the Ignition Lock Cylinder, refer to the Ignition Switch removal and installation procedure, earlier in this section. prev.gif next.gif

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.
