#28 of 118 Electrical Problem?
Feb 23, 2009 (10:49 am)
I have a v6 3.7L 2003 jeep liberty and the other day the car would not start. I tried jumping the car but with no success. I figured that my battery had died, so I had it tested. The battery was dead so I got a brand new one. My jeep ran fine for 2 days and now the battery is dead again. So I figure it's the altenator. I had the altenator checked but it's fine. I put the altenator back in the jeep and that's when I noticed that even with the car off and not running, when I touch the neg. battery cable to the battery, I noticed that the fan in the front is trying to move. So what can cause the car to drain the battery without the car running? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It may be the computer. The PCM on my wife's liberty was causing the battery to drain and they replaced it. It was actually covered by the federal warranty so we didn't get charged. This was one of the few times i was glad I took it to the dealer.
#30 of 118 transmission light always on
Mar 14, 2009 (8:59 am)
I purchased my 05 liberty in may of 08..three days after purchase, the dealership towed it back due to the tranny light being on.. couldn't find a problem!!! here it is almost 1 year later and the same light is on and they are trying to tell me it is on because it is the "check engine light" and I may need a catalitic converter and or fuel sensor...since when does a converter or fuel sensor have anything to do with a tranny light? I also have a terrible squeel comming from the front end...all brakes, rotors, callipers, and ball joints as well as new tires have been replaced but still there and very loud after running for awhile...can anyone help a girl out? what are these problems and how do I get them fixed....?????????????
#31 of 118 p0038 o2 sensor problem

I found the problem. It was the right rear "down stream" o2 sensor. The wiring came loose from the clip and one of the wires rubbed and broke. I put the wire back together. Will the computer reset or did that most likely short the sensor??

I appreciate your response..Im my case it ended up be 2 bad oxygen sensors. The one before the cadilitic converter and the one after the converter...passed inspection and light has stayed out with no problems ever since.

My libby is going crazy! My car keeps shutting completely down. I will run for all of about miles and then shuts off. There is no warning signs just the sterning wheel locks up and the the engine light flashing. The battery died so i replaced it and had the same issues. The Libby was placed on a machine and this code came up. I was a Engine Speed Sensor Circuit. I dont know how much this cost or where it is located at. Is this a easy fix? Do anyone know a very good mechainic in Ohio?
