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.
Jeep Liberty QuestionsWhy is my transmission fluid leaking? (1 answer)
I had my transmission rebuilt in November. Since then it has had to go back 5 or 6 times due to small leaks forming that increase over time. They are a reputable place and last time they had it was for 5 days. Now about two months later leaking again. Why is this happening and how should I handle...
when you push on the tailgate glass to close it it just pops open immediately.
I Replaced the bulb, checked the fuses, I discovered there is no power to brake light lens assembly.
Backup light and turn signal work fine..
Can light assembly be bad and how do I check it to be certain?
Jeep Liberty RecallsAir Bags May Deploy Unexpectedly
The air bags and seat belt pretensioners may deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being driven due to electronic interference. Dealers will replace the air bag electronic control module and the front and/or side impact sensors as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
The engine may crank over with the clutch pedal not depressed, or the engine may not crank over with the clutch pedal depressed. The clutch ignition interlock switch will be replaced to correct this problem.
The airbag control module can fail prematurely due to electrical noise beyond the tolerance it was designed for. As a result the front airbags, side airbags, and/or seatbelt pretensioners could deploy inadvertently while the vehicle is being operated, increasing the risk of personal injury and/or a crash. Dealers will replace the airbag control module and front and/or side impact sensors as required to correct this concern.
