#296 of 374 Jeep Liberty fan blower issue resolved - easy fix
Jun 17, 2010 (6:27 pm)
Thanks to all those that posted the easy fix for the blower resistor. It is just as explained in this blog. My fan was only working on level 4 on my 2005 Liberty Renegade. I purchased the blower resistor at my local auto parts store today for $15 plus tax. Once you buy it and look at it, it's easy to identify it once you drop the glove box. Open your glove box, push in the tabs on either side of the glove box and the glove box will swing down toward the floor. The resistor is truly right in front of you with about 6 wires coming out of it. You don't have to take each wire out. It's part of a clip that slides into resistor. I'm no mechanic and this was easy. There are two small bolts, you'll see clearly enough. The one on the bottom is a little tight to get to but one user on here suggested removing two screws under the glove box and a plastic panel drops out to give you more room. I didn't need to do that, just a little patience and a small ratchet. Remove the bolts. Once you do that, gently pull the resistor out and with the wires attached, the tail end of the resistor that plugs into the electrical housing is flat and about 3 inches long. Using a little slack on the wires as you can and turn the device upside down so the red locking clip is facing up. Get a small flat head screwdriver and push it in the clip gently and wiggle it and pull it gently, it will allow the wire assembly to pull out of the resistor. The red clip will pop out, set it aside until ready to reinstall. Once done, remove the old resistor. Next plug the new resistor back into the wire assembly. Press the small red locking clip back into the same place. Next with the red clip facing down, plug the whole resistor back into the housing above the glove box, reinstall your two screws. Pull the glove box back up to click into place and you are done with all speeds of the fan working again. Whole thing took me 15 minutes. Easy, and a dealership would most likely charge $75-$100 for an hours labor plus the part. Hope that helps.

Hubby came home and rechecked the fuses..found two that were blown. Replaced them and all hell broke loose! Now all idiot lights are on (except the check engine), radio has power but no control over it, back hatch won't open and back hatch window won't catch shut. Locks don't work, car won't turn off even with key out of ignition, rear defroster is on and won't turn off, a/c won't turn on at all. Intrior lights stay on and the only to turn the car off is appy the brake and pop the clutch to force a stall. All of this whether the car is running or not! arrgghhh!! It's at the shop now. I hate having to take it in, we do most of the work ourselves, but this is so far beyond what we are capable of.
Anyone have any ideas????

Maybe the bulb sockets shorting out? Get a meter and measure for voltage from the the metal on the truck's body behind the light cover to either side of the socket, if there's voltage present you have a short to ground. Of course the fuse will probably pop so have it setup before you put the fuse in.
#300 of 374 jeep liberty 2005 electrical issues
Jul 06, 2010 (5:19 pm)
my 2005 liberty has a problem when it rains very heavily. The car is parked and not running when this happens. The horn blows continuously until the battery is touched. Then the lights will not go off, the windows do not work, and the car will NOT start. I had it jumped, but it did not help. I waited a couple of hours, and then it started. When i had it serviced it had a bunch of computer problems, but none of them made any sense.
Does anyone else have this problem?
#301 of 374 light problem and horn problems
Jul 25, 2010 (3:49 pm)
I have a 2005 liberty everything works fine in good weather conditions but when it rains hard the lights come on by themselves while the car is parked and can't be turned off. If i dont catch it in time naturely the battery is drained when this happens and i try to start the jeep the lights go out but come back on when i shut it off.
It also messes up the remote starter, when I try to shut off the car it will not shut off right away. I have to have the remote starter re programed all the time the horn used to go off to but i unplugged it the dealer wants to charge me an arm and a leg to try to figure it out anyone ever had this problem? If so I would sure like to know what it was and how you fixed it I would sure appreciate any advice on this matter.

#304 of 374 2008 Liberty door lock and washer fluid problem

2008 Liberty door lock and washer fluid problem Hi. I'm new to this, or any, forum so please forgive me if my etiquette is not right. I have a 2008 Liberty sport 4x4 with a manual transmission. Last week I was driving in 4 hi and the window washer in the front stopped working. When I got home I realized the door locks were also not operational using the key fob. I did blow the fuse for the automatic door locks. I replaced the fuse and now the doors unlock with the key fob but will not lock. The front washer is still not work as well. I can't find a bad fuse for the washer motor. The rear washer works fine. I'm guessing that the two are related since they happened at the same time. Does anyone have any suggestions? It's got over 50,000 miles on it so my warranty is not any good and I try not to take it to the dealer if I can help it.
#305 of 374 Changing to LED bulbs some issues
Aug 25, 2010 (7:38 am)
I've started changing over to LED bulbs in my 2006 Liberty Sport (gas - 82K) and have run into some issues
1. Tail/Stop replaced bulbs ......no issues ....plug n play
2. Turn signal - LED in rear....... Passenger side no problem! Drivers side blink rapidly!
I have no idea how to add a 6 ohm 25 w resistor (which would kind of defeat the purpose of reduceing heat and current drain). Any ideas?
3. Dome lights .....two in front work great......installed the one in the cargo light and suddenly all three glow dimly all the time. Installed the OEM bulb in the cargo light .....all is good unless the cargo lamp switch is turned at the lamp, if the switch is on the front two dome lamps glow dimly.
After reading all the posts on this thread I feel that I am very fortunate that I have had very very few issues with this Jeep (which gets used hard). I have added 3 - 100w driving lights, use 100w bulbs in the headlights, 2 - 55w backup lights, 4 - 100w strobes, 4 - 20w strobes, mirror turn signals, and run 2 - 100w Ham radios plus a motorized HF antenna. So if anyone should have electrical problems it should be me.
I look forward to any insight y'all can share with me. I can supply anyone with the complete service manual and parts manual for the 2006 Liberty (on DVD) that wants it at no charge.
