Dodge Avenger owners have reported 2 problems related to battery (under the electrical system category).
I have been having problems with my Dodge Avenger for about 40,000 miles now and have had it into multiple shops without the problem being solved. The electronic throttle control light comes on and off at random times either causing my car to shut off while im going down the road, cause power lag with no acceleration about 45 mph or shifting into different gears, or the engine light comes on along with the etc light and the car will idle very high then very low and repeat the process making the car unable to drive. The vehicle has shut off on me while going down interstate and highways and I've almost been hit several times because of it. I see lots of postings with the same issue but there are no recalls on this issue which dealerships do not know how to fix. I've been told to change the battery, the tpms was messing up, the throttle valve was sticking, improper fuel delivery, and that the car wasn't getting enough air. None of these once fixed were the cause of the car freaking out and now im forced to drive day to day with my son in the car hoping it works well enough that an accident wont happen. I've seen enough complaints about the electronic throttle control that there should have been a recall a long time ago to fix this yet it's been 4 years and still nothing is being done to help make peoples vehicles safe again that they paid for.

Transmission went on main highway, rims fell pulled away from tireson both front ends causing flat tires on several occasions nad replacement of them. Almost crashed several times due to this. Drive door does not close properly all the time, it is not aligned correctly. Brakes had to be fixed several times and now ball bearings are warn and need to be replaced. Battery frequently gets corroded. All these problems within the past 3 years.
