#3 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2008 Dodge Avenger
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. It was Wednesday, October 13, 2010 when this check engine light on issue occurred.

#4 - Check Engine Light On problem of the 2008 Dodge Avenger
The vehicle involved was a 2008 Dodge Avenger. We were driving on the highway about 65 mph when our electric throttle control indicator light along with our engine light came on. When this happened we did not have a spedometer or rpm gauge. All of the lights that are related to the shifter (park, neautral, drive) also all lit up. The car did continue to drive but had less power. We pulled over and turned the car off. We tried to start it again but it would not start at first. The power locks and truck release would not work either. After about 5 minutes we tried it again and everything worked. The check engine light did stay on but the car drove fine. The engine light is still currently on. The failure date was Monday, Sep. 19, 2011.

The vehicle was a 1996 Dodge Avenger. The VIN of this vehicle was 4B3AU52N9T_. The check engine light came on after the firstsmog check requiredthis year 2000. The dealer reset it the first time. Then it came on again around town at 30mph. This is a still a new car less than 25,000 when it first started. I don't feel we should keep paying to get it repaired I understand that it can be up to approx 17 different things to set it off. At about $400 ea that's expensive. I also find it odd that it just started with a smog check. It was Mar. 24, 2000 when this check engine light on issue happened.
