Jeep Liberty Electrical and Lighting Problems

    Well, I was driving down the road this morning and Cd player quit working. I switched it to radio, then it shut down. It seemed like a fuse issue, or power issue. I have seen all of the comments about electrical issues. Any ideas? I did hear some crackling in the speakers as it quit though. Tried to turn it back, on and it turned on for a couple seconds and shut off!!
  • Hello;
    Me & my friend both have 2006 Libertys & they both lost the first 3 fan speeds within a week of each other. I found here that the problem is a resistor and easy to replace, the problem is, we do not know how to drop the glove box on the 2006 & I also read an article that states you must disable the air bags before you attempt to fix it.
    Any help would be wonderful, we are both unemployed (Florida), and females, and want to fix them ourselves to save the labor costs.

    Thank you very much,
    Beachpatty & Dodi

    Why do the interior lights on my 2002 jeep liberty go on and off after it is locked?
  • Thanks so much for this post, I too was having issues with the instrument panel backlights not working. I later noticed that my R-Rear running light and brake lights were not working (bulbs were good) After I replaced a bad-bulb in the 3rd brake light I thought that problem would be fixed but it wasn't. The #9 fuse initially tested good but for whatever reason it must have blown when the bulb was replaced or when I was checking the other bulbs. After I saw your post I checked again and it was clearly blown. Anyway thanks again for calling attention to the #9 fuse.
  • after reading everyone else's problems I am really scared now. About two weeks ago by ABS/EPS lights came on, I could tell by the feel that it really was something to do with the ABS brake system, now all of a sudden the a/c won't work. The Chrysler dealer here couldn't find out what was wrong when just the lights were on and wanted to charge 170 to run further tests. I took it to my regular mech and he tells me one of the boxes/chips something is bad and Chrysler is the only one that can program the box I will have to take it to them. You know what that means cha ching. He said the box was around 1200 so here we go. After reading all the comments about engines etc. I do believe it is lights out for the Jeep when fixed, definently made that decision for me.
  • I got into a wreck now my passenger side back light keeps blowing out and when changed I can tell that the plastic covering has been melted and the light is cracked open before changing...my fuse # 12 keeps blowing each time i insert a new one and the door locks, vanity lights and radio will not work...help
  • Sounds like a short somewhere.

  • lights out again 06 jeep liberty crd, changed socket still burning out fuses are all good any ideas
  • The other day I put my boat in the water. I came back and took my baby out of the water. While in the process I needed to engage the emergency brake; and all was fine. After pulling my baby out; I went down the road to home; unhooked the boat from my hitch and went about my business. Subsequently; I needed to go back out to purchase some Chinese takeout for dinner. I started the car and began going down the road when all of a sudden the ABS light came on; the red brake light came on; and my speedometer stopped working! What the &%!!*?"+^%$#@? is going on here? There are no adverse symptoms with my brake system. Everything works fine, yet the ABS and red brake lights stay on and my speedometer does not work? :confuse:
  • I have a 2002 jeep liberty sport and this has happened to me and i cannot put a fuse 12 in without it blowing out as soon as i put it there... and it controls my radio, cluster lights, power locks also.
  • had the same problem with the abs light brought it to dealer they told me it was an abs sensor guess there somewhere on the rear wheels
  • did you check the fuses in the power distribution center under the hood near the battery
  • I have a 2005 Jeep Liberty CRD. The low beam lights do not work. Does the Body Control Module (BCM) provide error messages? Is there a scanner that can be purchased to read errors from the BCM via the PCI data bus network?

  • Good news. I received conformation from the local Jeep dealer that the circuit does go through the relay then to the fuse panel. 2nd posting did confirm that the relay was on the back side of the panel (of course). Dealer indicated that relay is only $14 and the BCM if required is $275 (rather than the $600 -$800 I previously heard). Jeep parts department also indicated that the BCM comes PRE-programmed. The service manager did not believe this until I told him that the info came from the part department. 2nd posting also confirmed my thoughts of using the high beam relay in the low beam relay slot to perform the initial test on the low beam circuit (relay). If that does not work I will just perform the simple volt test at the relay location on the fuse panel. Thanks for being there to provide positive feed back to confirm some of my ideas of how to solve the problem.

    Good for you. I really am skeptical that the BCM comes "pre-programmed". I think what that means is that it comes with a series of DEFAULT settings. That's not going to work for you IMO.

  • Check the fuse. I think its in number 34 in the driver side dash fuse panel inside the cab.... It's 10 amp fuse that runs the radio, clock, etc...
  • Im very confuse with the forum i don't know if i am geting the people with similar problems i see you solved your problem and i don't what was your problem but i do know what mine is what is :

    YoJupiter7 - That is exactly the same problems I have, all lights (inside & out) & radio shut off for a second or two and will do it two or three times in a row. I have a 2004 Liberty Scary to say the least. I've been following this issue on Edmunds, for several months. However, I have come to my own conclusion that I do not have this issue, if I DON'T use my highbeams. Since stopping the use of using my highbeams, I have NOT had the issue, at all. Try it and let me know.

    I was originally told by an auto mechanic friend that someone with a Liberty had the same problem and had to have a dealer replace a module of some sort, which cost about $1,000. In my delay from spending that kind of money, I came here to see if other Liberty owners are having the same problems.

    Someone wrote just the other day about a similar problem, but I have yet to really look at their statement. I'm going to look now and will respond if I have any similarities.

  • Is there some type of fan contol unit or module that controls the electric fan for the radiator and if so where is it located and can i get a new one relatively inexpensively. The service department at Jeep told me it was bad and wanted to charge me 450.00 dollars to fix it.
  • Hi!

    Ive been having the same problem with my CD Player motor running when my Jeep is off!

    I brought it in last week and they were so convinced that it was a faulty radio which they replaced only to have the same problem again. They told me to try out the Jeep and see if the problem persists while they were also waiting for Chrysler to get back to them. I waiting a few days and no call and over the weekend on Sunday my Jeep wouldnt start, the battery seemed drained. I got it boosted and I drove myself over to the dealer this morning and let them have a piece of my mind. Ive only had the Jeep for a few weeks and having these strange issues.

    They said they would look into the issue and I told them to not call me until it is solved otherwise I will not take the Jeep out of their hands.

    The whole morning passed and I just got a call from the parts dept. around 2pm advising me that some "module" for my Jeep has arrived. The lady wasnt very helpful on explaining what is was for so I asked her to have a technician call and explain to me what the part is for etc.

    How did you problem get solved?

    Thanks!

  • Hi,

    Im writing to you again because after so much online searching, you are the only person who has the same problem as I do with the CD Player motor running when the ignition is off and key is out. Seems this problem drained my battery over the weekend as well.

    Was this problem every fixed? My Jeep is still at the service center as they are still trying to find the cause.

    Id really appreciate if you would reply.

    Thanks in advance!

  • For the first time, my outside lights flickered up and down (looked liked I had flickered the highbeams on) on their own...It happened a few times and my hand wasn't near the highbeam lever...hummm I own a 2003 Jeep Liberty ( 138,000 miles)
    I hope that this isn't a major problem...Does anyone know how to fix this if it becomes more serious?
  • so this message is for libertygirl ?or who ever has the same problem i think
