Dodge Avenger Problems
A knocking sound my be heard from the engine at times with the air conditioning on. The cause could be the AC compressor itself, if that is the case there is an updated AC compressor to correct this issue.
The automatic transmission can develop problems like erratic shifting, rough shifting, or delayed gear engagement. Repairs for many of these problems are outlined in service bulletins.
The anti-theft system may cause a no start condition due to electrostatic discharge (ESD) affecting the wireless control module (WCM). There is an updated WCM to correct this issue.
Dodge Avenger Questions
What fuses are associated with it?, is there a separate power transistor, relay, or control module on the blower itself, besides the hvac controls on the dash? And are there any recalls associated with this problem for this year?
This happened about a week ago.
Thanks for any help guys...
My front passenger caliper is seized. I was told that the brake pad, rotor, brake hose, and caliper all need replaced. What would be a reasonable quote for this?

Dodge Avenger Recalls
522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.
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.
The vehicle emission control system includes a fuel vapor canister that stores excess fuel vapors and then releases them to be burned when the engine is running. A broken control valve in the fuel tank assembly could allow liquid fuel to enter the vapor canister, resulting in an engine stalling condition and/or a fuel leak. Having the engine stall while driving increases the risk of a crash and any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank assembly on affected vehicles and replace a damaged control valve to correct this concern.
