#194 of 374 2004 Liberty Jeep Won't start
Feb 21, 2009 (7:26 pm)
I started my jeep and the engine died. The light on the dash said no bus and the engine symbol appeared. Prior to this stall, the interior lights flickered. I tried to find information on "all data" - but nothing that made sense. My husband replaced the alternator with a brand new one. The engine will run but all the lights came on along with the no bus code. Then the interior lights died. Any ideas before we take it to the dealership?

You need to have the codes read I think to narrow the fault.
#196 of 374 2004 Liberty - ALL LIGHTS GO OUT
Feb 23, 2009 (11:35 am)
As mentioned in several earlier emails, I too have had my headlights AND all inside lights go out while driving at night, in my 2004 Jeep Liberty. The first occurrence happened three times in a row within minutes. Although brief but scary, just the same. My mechanic mentioned that another Liberty had this problem and was taken to the dealership. In that case, a Modular of some sort, was replaced, costing nearly $1000. I just had this problem happen again, weeks later and am realizing now, that in both instances I was using the Brights On/Off Switch, more frequently than I would normally. I need to test this theory, but am hoping for some additional help and information off this site. With one payment left, I am disappointed to be having an issue.
*Note - a recent inspection did not produce any issues or problems through the computer hook-up.

#197 of 374 2009 Jeep Liberty Intermittant Battery Drain
Feb 24, 2009 (8:37 am)
I bought a 2009 Liberty in Dec. In that last two weeks, the battery has drained three times (after the first two times, factory replaced the battery) and the car won't start. With a jump the car will start. I had the tow package installed by the factory (at the dealership). Any idea where to look for the problem. To my knowledge nothing was left on. However, a friend tried to call me and the Uconnect satellite was the message he got instead of my voice mail. Any chance the problem is related to the Uconnect, GPS... or a short in the tow harness. All three times it was raining or snowing.

Hey there - I actually bought a brand new Liberty in December as well. Starting at 600km, I have had the exact same problem 4 times now (and I'm up to about 1200km). It runs fine after its jumped as long as it doesn't sit for more than about 12 hrs without driving it to recharge the battery. With mine....I also notice that you can hear the CD Player motor run about every 30 seconds after you shut the car off and even when no key is in the ignition (with no CD in the CD player). So far they have replaced the stereo and the battery.
It is currently sitting in the Jeep service department - and this time they called the Techs at Jeep/Chrysler and they told them to check for a pinched wire behind the headliner, and some kind of hose that goes from the washer fluid resevoir to the rear wiper.
Mine doesn't have the Uconnect or GPS - but does have the tow package.
I suspect I should get mine back in a day or two for "try" #5......but have you had any luck with yours yet? I'd be curious to hear if you think that they might have found the cause?
#199 of 374 RIGHT BLINKER NOT WORKING.
Mar 20, 2009 (8:13 am)
I have a friend with a 2002 jeep liberty renegade edition.She is a sweet lady and I'm trying to help her out so she don't have to spend a ton of money at the dealership.Her right blinker only works sometime's (very rarely) so I pulled front and back light assemblies and checked the bulb's all were o.k. and fit snuggly in there socket's. On the back however as was checking I wiggled the plug and it started flashing but 10 minutes later it stopped again so i assumed the plug was defective so I replaced it and that still did not work.all the other lights work fine. I as well changed sides from right to left to see if it was the light assembly itself but low and behold when I plugged it in to the left side plug it blinked. What else could be causing this?

Sounds like a bad ground somewhere, for that socket or harness.
