On a Dodge Avenger from 2008 the battery is behind the driver side wheel. You have to take the wheel off and then remove the plastic fender and the battery is right there just behind the front light. Here's how to replace it: 1. Block your tires, jack up the left side of your car and place a jack stand under your car. Luckily for me I was at home and had access to my stand. If out and about you may not have access to a stand, make sure your jack is in tip top shape.
2. Remove your tire. You possibly could do it without removing the tire, but you would be making your life so much more difficult. 3. Now you have accessed the wheel well and must remove the fender shield. There are two socket head bolts on the outside which are 9/32." Next remove seven push-in style retainers. You must pry them out carefully so that you can reuse them. 4. You can now for the first time see your battery, but you are not quite there yet. There are two retaining systems in place. First is a cross way bar which is removed using the 13MM Socket. Next you must remove the actual battery restraint. This is held on with another bolt that is also 13MM. 5. Remove the battery cables using the 10mm socket. The red cable comes of fairly easy, but the black cable is a bit of a stretch. If you have short arms you may need some help here. Also I could not get the socket onto the black cable, so I needed to use the open ended wrench. 6. Finally you battery is free. Pull it out carefully and place it aside. Now slide in your new battery. 7. Inspect your cables. Make sure that everything is in good shape and that you have a solid connection before you put everything back into place. 8. Replace everything in reverse order.

Disregard previous post...erroneous. You do NOT have to remove the LF wheel to remove/service the battery. Simply turn the steering all the way to the left to move the "toe" of the tire as far out as possible. Unsnap 13 plastic holdons and two toggle screws, battery will be on the sub-frame rail forward of the wheel well. 13mm bolts hold the crossbar, slide rearward enough to either clean the posts or check electrolyte. If you remove the cables, be VERY careful about shorts.

Whoever thought putting the battery there needs to be slapped really really hard.

I installed wing nuts to both terminal wires for easy disconnect by lifting the hood. It's still a squeeze to get down there, but much easier if I need a complete battery disconnect! It makes complete sense while working on these zombie cars! You'll thank me later.

  • 2008+ Dodge Avenger 2.4L 4cyl.
  • Remove plastic cover on top of engine, just pull on each corner for it is friction fit.
  • Once removed you will see 4 black spark plug covers with one hex type screw holding each.
  • Remove Hex screw and place aside, pull upward to remove plug boot from plug.
  • To remove the plug, use a 5/8 socket with a 6" extension. Once plug has been turned out all the way and you cannot get the plug up and out of the hole, just press the plug boot back on the plug and pull it back up.
  • Gap and replace 4 plugs with the same or equavalent type,. Drop plug down the hole and use socket to align and tighten until just snug, then torque to manufactures specifications.

Not sure if this will work for you but worth a shot. I own a 2005 dodge neon. I know the ecu's are different but maybe dodge was smart and made all the cars this way. Insert you key into ignition. Turn key forward until you are at the last position right before the car starts to crank over. Repeat this for a total of three times then on your digital odometer display, you will see a set of numbers displayed. this will be your code for the malfanction(s) that set your check engine light. Like I said, it might not work on your car but give it a shot. If not, rent an obdII scanner and get your codes. Then you know where to start looking to fix your problem.

How to change battery in 2008 dodge avenger


Disconnect negative battery cable first then positive then remove battery hold down screws and install in reverse. Use rubber gloves to prevent battery acid with skin contact. I prefer using rubber pliers on negative battery cable. I feel its safer. When putting negative battery cable on, place on holding rubber part not the metal contacts.
