2008 Dodge Avenger Owner Comments

problem #2

  • 80,000 miles


Air bag light comes on and stays on when when moving seat up or back which makes the sensor come on, have to keep moving the track until it turns off. Is this related to recall G14? fan in radiator constantly turns off and on, and now my car seems to have a electrical short that makes a knocking noise in the engine compartment when the air/heater is turned off, also the left side of car defroster does not work. Most recent the left driver seat belt all of a sudden is not retracting, this is not safe in the case of an accident, dealer is charging an outrageous price to have it fixed.
