    Take it to a local AutoZone and have them read the code(s) from the OBDII computer. Then report back with the codes - just reply to this thread.

    Typically, OBDII will automatically turn off the CEL if the conditions no longer warrant the light to be on, but in your case it seems there is indeed a long term malfunction of something, usually emissions related.

    No need to "take to Autozone" because Dodge has built-in diagnostics access.

    Without starting engine, turn key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON and leave it ON.

    This will trigger the on-board diagnostics to start. The dashbaord display will indicate that the diags. are running. When complete, the dashboard will display any failure-codes.

    Look up the codes here ==> http://www.allpar.com/fix/codes.html

    NOTE: The codes are regulated by the Federal government and are known as OBDII (OnBoardDiagnostics -version 2)
