My car has been making this loud Radley type of noise on the side of the engine by where the belts are its been doing that for about a week now then i noticed the battery light comes on and off and now today i started the car and the engine light, air bag, and battery light all came on. Then when i tried to switch it in gear it wouldn't switch so i turned the car off and tried to turn it back on and it wouldn't turn on. The radio went black but the head lights come on i need to see what this problem is
Hello there, many common faults will cause your 2007 Dodge Caliper to have a noise in the engine bay and not start normally. In this case the most likely fault is the alternator. The alternator contains bearings that fail over time and cause a noise. If the alternator begins to fail it will not provide the proper charging voltage to the battery, check engine lights, and a vehicle that does not start. A qualified Technician such as one from YourMechanic will be able to diagnose your alternator and provide any repairs required.
