    Are you talking about the check engine light? If so the Dodge dealer is not the only place you can take it too.

    That is a fancy way of saying check engine light. Just because the dealer sells the vehicles doesn't mean they know how to fix them. You need to find a shop that can scan the vehicle witha full enhanced scanner. If the light came on there's codes in the computer, unless the computer is bad.
