A defective vehicle speed sensor can cause problems with the cruise control and speedometer operation, as well as erratic shifting. The connectors on the sensors are also susceptible to corrosion, which will create similar symptoms. Any of these problems can cause Check Engine Light illumination.

RepairPal Expert Overview:
Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.

2012 Dodge Avenger Reviews
I love my car. I do have issues with the cruise control sometimes it works and some times it doesn't. No engine light however. Now I did have a accident and the repair time was quick and look fantastic when done , outside of an issue we wont go into here, nothing to do with car itself. I had a 2011 bought used had less than 30days and blew the head gasket and they gave me a whole different car, my choice, my choice of make, model but I really liked the Avenger so I chose a 2012. All good for me. I do not like the cd player and am thinking about installing a different one, there is a stuck cd in it now. Being a Jeep person hence the name of mine, I do like this this car. I will possibly go back to Jeep if I can, if not maybe another Avenger? I dont understand why they had to make it so close to the Charger? Outside of the front grill it is alot alike. If you take care of it , oil changes and all that, tires....this car I think would last a long time. Ive put 30,000 on it this past year.
