#354 of 374 Lighting issues
Mar 25, 2012 (12:12 pm)
I have a 2005 jeep liberty 3.7 4x4. Yesterday, all of a sudden, while driving at night, the left signal indicator in the instrument panel stayed on solid (not in a blinking motion). the signal light workes but when I got home the tail light was out and the fuse was blown. I replaced the fuse and the same thing happened. Here is what I found. When driving during the day time and without activating the head lights, the signal light indicator stays off and the signal light works fine. As soon as I turn the headlights on, the indicator light stays on untill the fuse blows ( which is about 2-3 minutes or the minute I turn on the lt turn signal). When I turn on the lt signal light with a new fuse, the signal light and tail light flash together. once the fuse blows, the lt signal light works but no tail light. I have changed bulbs, fuses and cannot figure out why the lt tail light and signal light are working together when they are in two different sockets.
Where do I start? Is there a part that I can change?????

I am having the exact same issue. It started a few months ago. I left it for a while replaced the bulb and fuse a few weeks ago and it worked great until a few days ago when the same problem occurred.
Please let me know if/how you resolve this issue.

My Jeep has electrical issues that result in my windshield wipers going off on their own, the washer fluid flowing freely, and the horn going off without warning. In addition - my car jolts (as if the breaks have been hit) at 70 mph on the freeway while this happens. The only way to get it to stop is to pull over, raise the hood and HIT what I believe to be the fuse box. However, there is no rhyme or reason as to why this continues to happen. This has been going on for months. I am very unsatisfied with this purchase. My car has gone from one I love to one I HATE to drive in fear of it freaking out and causing me to have to pull over at a moments notice. I live in a rural area and pulling over on back country roads is extremely unsafe. Given the number of issues being seen on this site and others, is Chrysler/Jeep considering a Recall or some answer for those of us that own these vehicles? I don't think I should pay for a car that puts me in danger.

Give Jeep customer care a call, I have found them to be extreamly helpful in resolving weird issues, although other than the window regulators & recently having to replace the ECM (Engine Control Module" I haven't had any issues. The BCM (Body control module) may be "going south" on you, I beleve this controls the electrical power distribution.
I made "a little noise" about the window regulators & Jeep is gauranteeing them for the life of my vehicle (7 replaced to date)!
The ECM was throwing an O2 heater circut code, after replacing all 4 sensors twice I narrowed it down to the ECM. Replaced it for $245. the unit comes with a lifetime gaurantee & took 10 minutes to replace.
Good luck, don't be afraid to yell & scream (although a customer shouldn't have to)

Ok...I'm hoping someone on here might be able to help me before I spend tons of money on my 2006 Jeep Liberty Limited. Here is the problem...when I turn on my headlights my emergency brake light comes on, my headlights go dim to bright then back to dim, my battery light comes, my right turn signal flashes out of control when I use it and when I turn my high beams on my jeep feels like it shifts into a lower gear and my RPM's go crazy. Someone mentioned that it might be the multifunction switch however I was hoping that maybe someone else may have had this problem. Can anyone help?
#359 of 374 2009 Liberty Intermittent issues with starting
Aug 31, 2012 (12:39 pm)
I have a 2009 Jeep Liberty which I've owned since 3/10 and I love it! But, in the past 2 years I've had intermittent issues with it not starting, not cranking, not even turning over. I've replaced the starter twice, replaced the battery with a Sears Die Hard and had it towed to the dealership (Earnhardt Jeep in Mesa, AZ and Carmax in Gilbert, AZ) 6 times only to be told, "Well, it's starts for us" and "unless it does it for us, we can't do anything about it". Several times it's left me stranded because of the intermittent problem. I just don't trust it anymore and am afraid to drive it as I don't want to be stuck anywhere. I do have AAA thankfully and they've been able to assist in getting it to the dealerships for review, but again, with no positive results. I've spent so much in towing and in "diagnostic" charges I'm at my witts end. I really love the look of my Liberty (black with lots of chrome and a slider roof) and it is super fun to drive, but again, I don't want to be stuck somewhere because of the once in a while not starting. I have a therory that there is a short in the ignition switch because, if I keep trying to start it, sometimes after 10 or 20 attempts, it will start. But, several times it has not. I think that the jiggling around on the tow truck has restarted the short and that's why the dealer can't find the problem. Please let me know if this is common and maybe a possible solution as I really hate to part with my Liberty.

Have you tried wiggling the rheostat that dims and brightens the dash lights? Maybe pressing hard on it, or trying to clean it with electrical cleaner?

Had the same problem in an 07 liberty. Really escalated after that with nothing working in the dash cluster and the headlights not working at all. Replaced the body control module. After a few weeks headlights starting flickering, then dash lights starting going out again. Maybe a bad ground.

Sorry to hear you are having a concern with your 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade.
I checked for Technical Service Bulletins but could not find anything related to no dash lights like you described.
You may want to consider having the vehicle diagnosed by your local authorized Jeep Service Department or a trusted mechanic.
