2008 Dodge Caliber Problems

No start or no crank due to theft system wireless control module

A no crank or no start condition may be the result of a theft system fault. Our technicians tell us that replacing the wireless control module should correct this issue.

The Front Struts May Wear Prematurely

The front struts may wear prematurely, resulting in poor handling and/or a rough ride. Struts may also be diagnosed as leading. When replacing front struts on 2007 - 2009 vehicles, the jounce bumper should be inspected. If it is found to be a one-piece black rubber part, it should be replaced with a newly designed jounce bumber end dust shield.

Water Leak From Headliner Area

Water leaks from the headliner may be cause by damaged sun roof drain tubes.
