catalytic converter just rusted out and car previously had good size leak/hole up from converter but now need whole exhaust from engine to rear and need an estimate!!!

service engine soon light

Help! What should I do???

The vehicle is garaged and so cold would not be a factor in the problem. I would also like to know why my brakes only squeal when backing up. There seems to be a lot of complaints on this issue.

When I give it gas the knocking becomes faster. Sometimes it will stop when I am on the highway. The car has not had an oil change for a while.

I pulled over & shut down the vehicle.
I checked the manual & it read that this light was the Electronic Control Throttle.
However, when I started the car back up it ran fine.
Should I be concerned. Did this reset itself?

so me and my little girl got locked inside the car for an hour and a half this week due to an electrical issue preventing the doors from unlocking and the window from working. The dealership cant seem to figure it out because its an intermittent electrical issue. I have owned the car since 2010 and this issue including alarm system spazzing and stalling has all occurred a minimum of 30 times over the past 5 years. Even if dodge dealership can diagnose it this time it will be at my expense because electrical isnt in the warranty. Anyone else having these kinds of issues? Oh and the radio power goes out at the time of the (fit) aswell the odometer flickers like crazy, mostly just numbers but sometime other things like d/fuse/blank

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. these cars are a piece of crap, If i can fix this my girlfriend is getting rid of it before something major happens!

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?

When it discharges a red dot light up in the dashboard when trying to turn it on

Trunk doesn't want to open

it also keep needing oil i have to keep getting my oil changed

I replaced the gas cap and the engine light is still on, any info on how to check or find the leak would be helpful. My dad will most likely be doing this himself because people said it could be very expensive going to a mechanic. Thanks

I have spark,fuel,and compression and sometimes it will start and sometimes want I have changed the fuel pump and relay along with the ASD relays I do not loose spark or fuel pressure timing marks and belt is good right on mark I have tested injector fire plugs or wet when it want start compression is 110 I'm so lost right now any suggestions the car has no codes I never lost spark or fuel pressure it does start every once in awhile and runs good

Dealership wants $1000 for this repair and I'd rather not pay that if I don't have to.

Since it has been cold out (below freezing) once or twice a week I will get in my car and the radio clock says 12:00 and it seems like the engine doesn't want to start. it does but wonder if there is a short anywhere. had battery checked and it was fine.
