Ok Guru's 2006 Liberty 2wd 6 speed 31,900 miles check engine light just came on. Checked the code on the odo. all it says is 6.3 before it displays 0.0 for trip miles. Jeep has been a great car. Only problem to date has been L/R window, but found a metal part on line and was an easy fix. I have been recently getting a noise in the R/R wheel when braking so I'm thinking new pads. other than that has been fine. 6.3 for a code seems strange, any thoughts on this?

Well your repair issues are not a BIG deal for any backyard Mechanic..For probably a 1/4 of the dealers cost. I have NEVER (in 35 years of car ownership) let a dealer touch any of my vehicles UNLESS it was covered by their warantee...Hell I find with patience and a bit of time I save THOUSANDS $$$
For me...If Ive never repaired it before..Doesnt matter, I DO IT MYSELF and learn on the fly...If you think real hard Ill bet you can find a male friend who is Mechanicaly inclined or better yet fairly experienced...pay them to do the job.... At This point you are gonna pay the dealer more than the vehicle is worth. My dainty and mechanically challenged wife replaced her O2 sensor for the cost of the sensor $50.00 and about 35 minutes of her time most of that time was reading the manual.

That is a bizzare code. What I have learned with my 2005 CRD (diesel) is that the code that I can generate through the odometer are wrong most of the time. I do not know if that holds true for the gas Liberty. I have had codes come up for several things and yet when the dealer scans the OBD, it shows only one thing, like a glow plug or some other simple issue.
I would suggest getting the dealer to use their scan tool to give you the correct code before you or anyone here proceeds to repair the wrong item.

P0171 is a lean condition picked up by the oxygen sensor on the bank where #1 cylinder lives. Look at:
1. Bad oxygen sensor (replace if needed)
2. Dirty MAF (clean or replace)
3. Vacuum leaks (vacuum lines, intake manifold gasket(s), etc.)
Start with these areas.

#110 of 118 2004 Jeep Liberty engine light came on

I am trying to help my niece long distance. She has a 2004 Jeep Liberty and the check engine light went on last night. Oil, water and belts all are good and no discernible noises are evident. I see posts talking about codes - how does she get to see these codes so I can help her with this problem? She is a young teenage girl with limited funds and I am trying to help within her budget, so all assistance appreciated.

This is how I read the codes on my wife's 03 Jeep Liberty.
1) Insert key and turn forward as if to turn on car, but DON'T turn on. You will hear the chimes.
2) Turn back to original position.
3) Do this 3 times.
4) On 3rd time leave key in forward position (do not turn on), the car will chime. Look at the odometer section beneath the speedometer, I believe. Otherwise, look under the tachometer, there should be a small digital display as well. If there is a code, it will appear there starting with the letter "P"..ie P0122, P0171...etc.
This is off the top of my head since I am not in front of the vehicle. Our 03 Liberty had a stalling/rough idle that gave a code of P0122 (throttle position sensor) I ordered the part based on that code, swapped the part and the car runs great now. Hope this helps.

I have a 05 Liberty that is giving me a a 0700 code. The jeep runs fine with no slip in the transmission. What do I need to look at ? Thanks!
