#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.

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.
#306 of 374 Multiple Problems 02 Jeep Liberty
Sep 23, 2010 (8:50 pm)
New here, not sure of the proper etiquette, so will just jump right in and hope someone can tell me. 02 Jeep liberty 3.7L V6 2WD. Sisters car -- She tells me that is sticking in 3rd, and won't shift to OD. Sometimes when it DOES go into OD, and you let off the gas, will dang near give you whiplash with the downshift, and then will not go back into OD. So I drove it, and it stayed in 3rd all this morning. On my way home, it went into OD fine, and ran about 2200 RPM's at 65-70 MPH.....Till I let off the gas and it downshifted, and wouldn't go back into OD. So, I get off at the exit, and stop, and the headlights go out, come on. Weird!! So keep driving. Poor guy in front of me must've thought I was trying to get him to pull over or something, because for the next 5 miles, on, off, on off, BRIGHT, off, on. Noticed also in the last few miles getting here that acceleration from a stop, have to really put my foot in it for it to go.....Pulled into the incline driveway at a crawl, even tho I had my foot in the gas pretty good. Found out that the prev owner had to replace the motor, and some JACKIE put the wrong computer in it, and JACKIED some stuff up, so guy had to go get a new computer, but they think he may have gotten one from salvage -- So, do I need a computer, a wiring harness?? both??? Oh, and the A/C blowere motor works on 4 only and only about 25% of the time. THANK YOU FOR ANY HELP!!! I am tryin to help her out, but don't really know with this many things going on....was going to change the transmission filter as we are at a little over 153000 miles----but wony if that will possibly cause tranny problems, and possibly just a relay or bad connection!!!! THANK YOU!!!

I too had a 2008 Liberty Limited 4x4 auto tranny that had some similar sounding electrical issues. I would have windhsield wipers start either front or rear with fluid spraying with no key in the car. Sometimes just opening the door without the keyfob would trigger a weird electircal response with horn blowing yadda yadda. Mine was still under warranty and the dealer replaced the TIPM (totally integrated power module) which they say controls the electrical system and doing some quick searches the symptoms sounded similar. It's around a $200 part, not saying it's your fix but something to inquire about.

Ok, so yesterday, we replaced the transmission filter, and ended up putting in 7 additional qts of tran fluid after dropping the pan. So, think the transmission fluid must've been low to begin with. Since doing this, we haven't lost OD once, but is now shifting hard between 2nd and 3rd. We also found that the previous owner must've patched the PCV valve with a rubber 'L' boot, (why -- when the part is $4 at autozone, is beyond me)......So still shifting a little rough between 2nd and 3rd. Think maybe the loss of OD was due to low trans fluid. Drove all last nite, and no problems with the headlights. BUT now, if we shut the car doors, the doors lock automatically. Which was really bad last nite, because we got out of the car at a friends house, and were standing around in the driveway-- left keys in it, because we were right there. NOT RUNNING, KEYS OFF, and doors locked. And doors keep locking automatically....have no clue why -- and now, (we cleaned the posts on the battery also -- so reset), when we unlock the doors with the key, the alarm (horn) goes off until you hit the unlock button on the inside of the doors. Anyone have any clue as to the doors locking by themselves, and the alarm going off when unlocking the doors with the key??
