#38 of 374 Need help replacing a brake light (tail light) bulb
Feb 12, 2007 (4:35 pm)
I just realized I posted a message in the wrong spot. I'll start again: Please help. All I'm trying to do is replace a bulb in the tail light of my 2004 Jeep Liberty. I've unscrewed the two screws, but can't seem to wedge the one-piece light case from the jeep. I thought this would be a breeze. We are expecting snow tomorrow night and I would like to take care of this tiny problem before I get stopped and issued a ticket. Any suggestions.
#39 of 374 2005 Liberty - Speedometer AND DYING Issues
Feb 16, 2007 (11:29 pm)
Note - I am NOT an owner but a garage owner in Cairo Egypt which makes it even more difficult to trouble shoot some of these problems.
2005 Jeep Liberty with less than 5,000 miles which has been through the issues - faulty water pump - replaced. faulty A/C compressor - replaced and then the speedometer quitting completely. Put it on OBD II and indicated speedometer sensor - replaced one sensor - still the same problem and was considering ordering the second sensor from the States to see if this would solve the problem when the owner came up with a new problem.
Driving after about 1/2 hour - transmission "lurched" slightly then all electrics died and car died. After a few minutes - car would start up again and be good for another 5 minutes of driving - then same problem again.
Got cat to my garage and just let is sit running. After a period of time - while watching - speedometer would jerk up to 10, 20 30 MPH - then back to 0. Again this would happen until finally car would stop - no electics. After starting (no problem) same thing happened after 5 minutes.
OBD only indicates P0501 - speed sensor fault.
Suggestions please - and please don't say take to the dealer as they are non-existant and worthless here.

You are describing an intermittent fault that can have several origins.
Try bending and stretching all cables (related to engine management) in the engine compartment and around the steering column after re-inserting all connectors into their sockets. If it's a cabling issue you have a chance to detect it this way. Don't forget the speed sensor (rear differential)and the battery lugs. The ECU does not always keep "ON" the "field connection" of the alternator! This can act as a mask during your investigation.
After doing this if there is no improvement you may have to look for broken solder joints under the ECU and speedometer connectors. Good luck
#41 of 374 2002 Liberty - Problem with bottom vent
Mar 12, 2007 (12:17 pm)
Since the beginning of winter (of course ) the bottom (floor) vent doesn't work anymore. The ventilation work perfectly (position 1 to 4) and I get plenty of air. The problem is that if I put the selector on bottom position (or bottom and front) the air will get out only through the defrost vent (or defrost and front) but nothing at the bottom...which is kind of cold here with -25C.
Any idea if there is a fuse somewhere that control that or else?

The flaps of the ventilation system are moved by a "vacuum logic" system. There could be something stuck in the ventilation housing or you could have a pinched tube somewhere.
The heater control panel of the console carries this rotary 'vacuum / vent' distributor where 6 tubes are connected. The blowing of air towards the floor is accomplished by the second and third tubes coming from the bottom of the control. These tubes are color coded BLUE and YELLOW.
The GREEN tube is used for the recirculation flap,
The BLACK tube for vacuum connection,
The BROWN for 'Panel-Door' full,
The BLUE for 'Floor / Defrost Floor',
The YELLOW for 'Floor / Defrost Floor' mid position,
The RED for 'Panel-Door' mid.

Thanks you Caribou1 for the reply
Do you know any way to access easily that part of the console? I would like to spend some time this week-end to look into this problem but I fear that accessing that (behing the console) will be a nightmare...

I've not done this, but read in the repair manual that you have a Phillips head screw in the recess of the console where you can leave sunglasses. Then the cover plate (decor) comes off and you access the heater control from the front. There are again 4 screws in the corners that allow you to pull towards the cabin this element. You will know more by monday next week
#45 of 374 Daytime running lights
Mar 28, 2007 (4:16 pm)
I have a 2003 Jeep Libery Limited and I just bought the module for the daytime running lights to place in the fuse box. Does anyone know if I need a special relay for this or new headlights to go with this module? I have looked at a lot of wb sites and I can't figure this one out. If anyone has ever tried to replace this, can you let me know about the headlights? Thank! Angie

Our Jeep Liberty just had this same problem. A fuse blew and now the interior lights and radio do not work. Any replacement fuses blow immediately. Did you find out what was caused the fuse to blow?
