2012 Jeep Liberty ProblemsFront/Rear Differential Pinion Seal/Transfer Case Leaks are Common
Leaks at the front and/or rear differential pinion seal and from the transfer case are common. Low fluid level in the differential or transfer case can result in bearing failure. Damaged bearings commonly cause a whine or growl type noise.
An engine misfire at idle (rough idle), accompanied by illumination or flashing of the Check Engine Light, could indicate a problem with one or more of the intake valves. Revised intake valves & valve locks are available to address this concern.
A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.
2012 Jeep Liberty QuestionsMy heater will not blow on the feet. Heat only comes out from top vents. (1 answer)
When i put the heater on feet nothing comes out. The heat shoots out from defrost vents only no matter how high I put it
The mechanic that did my oil change brought this to my attention. He stated rear brakes normally last 30k. Does anyone else seem to have a problem with this? My front brakes are fine but rear are almost shot.
I towed the car to a shop. I wonder how much i should pay for it?
2012 Jeep Liberty RecallsActive Head Restraints May Not Function As Expected
Active head restraints are designed to move forward and upward as necessary in the event of a rear end collision. These vehicles are being recalled because an internal fault in the occupant restraint control module could cause the active head restraints not to function as expected, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will reprogram the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) or replace the occupant restraint control module as necessary to correct this concern.
