Regarding your 2012 Dodge Avenger. The light you are describing sounds different then a check engine light. 

What could be causing the vehicle to shake, there are a few possible reasons why. Is it shaking while driving, at idle or braking? Could be brakes, tire condition, engine mounts, Struts, fluid conition, or the vehicle can be misfiring. To know for sure, take it to a local shop. They will road testing and diagnosis on the vehicle to determine when the vehicle is shaking and why.
