I'm posting a follow up to my mysterious Jeep Liberty horn stuck and headlight flashing report. It wasn't long before I noticed the carpet on the entire driver's side was absolutely soaked, sopping, drenched — A LEAK! I cut the carpeting out (it was staring to stink) and I found a wire harness with hundreds of wires underneath soaking in a channel of water. My mechanic assured me that a wet wire harness would cause all kinds of crazy problems. Since it has all dried out all the problems have ended. I have not isolated te leak yet but I've learned there's a drain in the sunroof area that can get clogged and back up water that overflows behind panels. Also suspect is the new windshield I had installed a few months ago — it had not rained since then. Hope this info is helpful to someone! Cheers.

Has anyone been told to remove neg. battery cable and let the airbag system discharge before going through with the resistor replacement? Any help appreciated>

I guess I don't know what resistor replacement you are talking about but looking through the '06 Jeep Liberty service manual it is recommended that you disconnect the negative side of the battery for just about everything including changing light bulbs.
Better to be safe than sorry, that being said I hardly ever do it myself and have never had a problem.
Hope this was helpful
#323 of 374 Re: Interior Lights, Keyless Remote and Radio Fuse Problems
Nov 15, 2010 (1:18 pm)
I purchased a 2006 Jeep Liberty with 45000 miles and the day after I bought it I washed it and about 15 minutes later my radio stopped working, my interior lights stopped working and the keyless remote stopped working. I checked the fuse box and there is a fuse that is blown. #34. My problem is that I keep replacing it and it keeps blowing out as soon as I push it in. Does anyone know what could be wrong and how much it would cost to fix it?
#324 of 374 Dashboard lights off but come on when braking
Dec 11, 2010 (12:53 pm)
We have a 2004 jeep liberty. Love the little car, but the dashboard lights are somehow crossed with the brake lights. They won't come on except for when you hit the brakes. Any ideas from anyone on where to look? Help.....

Not sure but if I had to take a WAG on it I''d suspect the wiring in the multi-function switch.

Thank you. Tried the brake light switch. That wasn't it. Have assumed it is some kind of ground wire issue, but haven't found it yet. Will try the multiple function switch. Will let u know. Thanks again for the the lead.
#327 of 374 Jeep Liberty CD Player
Dec 24, 2010 (11:01 am)
My battery went dead on my Liberty and after having it towed to the dealer and replaced, the CD player no longer was recognized. The radio AM and FM was fine but when using the mode button it just skips back and forth to am/fm. You can hear the 6 disc changer going around but that is all. Has anyone had this problem? I have read several other messages on other sites about this. What did any of you do if this happened to you? Dealer wants to charge me $600 for new unit, says it is not their fault.

Beleive it or not, the exact same thing happened to me about 3 weeks ago with my 2002 Liberty. A local garage pinpointed the problem to a malfunctioning radio/CD player. I only have the single-disc player, but apparently it was drawing over 2 amps even with the car off. The mechanic was able to locate a 2nd hand unit for around $200. It turned out the replacement was actuallly a better model than my original.

Thanks everyone for the pointers on this problem.
I have had the lights flash on my 04 liberty twice. I think both times was when my gas tank went below 1/4 full. So I may try replacing the gas cap and see if that is what is causing this strange phenomena.
