#4225 of 4230 Jeep 2010 Liberty Limited
Nov 10, 2012 (8:53 pm)
I have owned a 2010 Jeep Liberty Limited since January 2010. We have had problems with the temperature sensor (I believe). The problems associated with this issue are:
-The auto sense fans (heat/ac) do not work properly, run when shut off, don't run when on high power and high heat; includes the defrost: can't see, safety issue. not cool. Cold winter coming: no heat/control over heat, not cool.
-the auto sense lights do not work-which means, when it's dusk, the lights don't come on, causing other motorists to flash me. Safety. Not cool.
This usually happens without warning. The first time we brought it in for this (late winter, 2011 I believe), the service department attributed the problem (blown/burned out temp sensor) on a build up of ice in the cooling fan-froze up, overheated the sensor, causing problems. However, the problems began again in 2012 (around late February) and as we had little to no snow accumulation, nor were we off-roading and "playing" in the snow, I found it hard to believe it was the same problem. They fixed it again. Now, it's November 2012 and I'm noticing my fan is acting up again. I was unable to successfully defrost my windshield during a drive home tonight in the rain. My thoughts are: if I want the fan to be on high and blowing out 78 degrees in November, even if its 47 degrees out, it should blow out hot air on high, correct? The dealer assures me it is not a recall issue nor do they have any information from the manufacturer or other consumers that this is a problem. I am now frustrated (especially since the warranty is used up) as it's a safety concern. Any guidance on this would be appreciated as I am unable to locate any problems with this particular issue. Thank you.
#4227 of 4230 do I need a bypass module for 2012 liberty remote starter
Mar 11, 2013 (10:07 am)
Hello, i recently bought my girlfriend a groupon gift of a remote car starter install from Midas for her 2012 Jeep Liberty. She has scheduled the appointment, but the guy said she would also need to buy an alarm bypass module for $120 in order for them to do the install. I could not find any solid info on if this is needed. I suspect its a scam to get more $$$ out of the service. I did see some of these online for $30. I smell scam...
Does anyone know if this is required for the install?
Thanks in advance for the reply..

"Federal safety regulators have asked Chrysler to recall the 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-'07 Jeep Liberty. Last June, NHTSA expanded its investigation into Chrysler fires and upgraded the matter to an engineering analysis, citing 15 deaths and 41 injuries allegedly caused by rear crashes in some Jeep models. The focus was originally on the 1993-2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee, but the investigation now includes 1993-2001 Jeep Cherokees and 2002-'07 Jeep Libertys."
