Have had so many of these same problems as those posted gas cap, stained seats, engine light, part time and full time 4x4 lights, every dash light is on now.Chrysler doesn't have mechanics that know anything about diesels and all they want to do is change the computers to the tune of 1200 dollars. We have 100 thousand miles on jeep high yes but that was why we bought this jeep to have a dependable car wrong! Friends have gas 2005 liberty have alot of problems also with theirs. Hope someone can tell us what to do.

My 07 airbag light keeps coming on, took it to the dealer and was told some sensor is bad and would cost $265 to fix, seems crazy their is nothing wrong with the physical aspects according to them, it has never been in an accident, is their a way I can make this light go away cheaply? Is their a fuse?

just got a Jeep Liberty and there is a light shaped like (!) on the dashboard. I didn't get an owners manual. Do you know what it means? Also is there somewhere I can get a manual?

Sounds like your tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) light.
You'll have to look for a manual on eBay or at your local auto salvage yard. You can download a manual from Chrysler but they only go back to 2004. You can buy one from Jeep too:

That is the TPMS system alret.
Check the air pressure in all your tires. there is at least one that is low.

Have a 2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 Limited. I was driving and suddenly 3 bell rings sounded, but there were no warning lights on. Any ideas?

How do you access the transfer case position sensor? I attempted to access it from underneath but i couldn't see much, is it done by touch? Can it be accessed from above?
#68 of 89 Jeep Liberty Engine Light, Rough Idle, Poor Shifting, Poor Gas Mileage
May 29, 2011 (10:47 am)
Does your Jeep Liberty have the above referenced problems? My girlfriend has been having a recurring problem with her JL 2003 for at least the past 5 years. She has struggled with a recurring check engine light. Every time she has brought it in to a shop, they discover that the problem is a poor sealing gas cap. Today I decided to actually do some investigation of my own.
The first thing I did was look at the gas cap compartment. I noticed that it was filled entirely with a persistent film of black, sooty residue. This is not normal. I then removed the gas cap and inspected it closely. Upon inspection of the underside of the cap (the white part that screws in), I noticed more black soot all around the upper seal mechanism, but mostly in two locations. I also noticed that the bottom-most seal had a spring-loaded pintle that is meant to act as a pressure-relief valve should the internal gas tank pressure go above the spring pressure. HOWEVER, THIS PINTLE APPEARED TO BE INSTALLED UPSIDE DOWN AS IT NEVER SEEMED TO SEAL AT ALL!
So I disassembled the entire gas cap. I cleaned all the parts with carb cleaner, and reassembled the cap components the way that I thought they should go together. I then re-installed the gas cap... and voila'. The car is now a joy to drive. The hesitation - gone! The poor shifting - gone! The rough idle - gone!
IT APPEARS THAT WHOEVER ASSEMBLED THE GAS CAPS FOR JEEP (AT LEAST FOR CERTAIN MODEL YEARS) ACTUALLY INSTALLED THE INTERNAL LOWER SPRING RETAINER UPSIDE DOWN!
If you have this problem, please bring it up to your Chrysler dealer. They will probably hem and haw and will not believe you, but I guarantee you that if you have been having the problems my girlfriend reported, replacing the cap with a correctly assembled version will solve the problem.
Good luck, as most OEMs are not very good at admitting their mistakes.
