SOURCE: Fuse box

Should be fuse #7. If you look really close at the fuse panel you should notice that there are small raised numbers denoting which fuse is which.

Your Display will Eventually Stop alltogether. Happened on my 2000 Blazer and had to replace with Aftermarket Stereo. Dealer wanted WAY too much for new unit.

SOURCE: I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last

most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

Just for thought try removing the light bulb under the hood, the socket my have gone bad and keeping the light on.
Good luck and keep me posted. Also not sure if your Liberty has one of the sun visor with a light switch on it, I found the one on my jimmy was always on thank's to my G/F putting things between the visor and ceiling.

SOURCE: 2002 Jetta TDI radio fuse number?

The Fuse number is..... drum roll..... 42 .... And you don't even have to have a dead battery for the radio to lock up. I have owned my 2002 tdi since New... and about 4 or 5 times a year radio dies. When you remove the fuse... don't immediately put it back in.... The capacitors in the radio have not fully discharged and if you put the fuse right back in.. chances are it will stay locked. I count to 15... then put the fuse back in. Close fuse door.... Operate radio normally till next lock up.... then repeat process. So you won't forget the fuse number... write #42 in the white space of your fuse location sticker that is attached to the inside of the fuse door. Hope this helps... tried to be detailed.

Battery slowly goes dead on my 2001 pt cruiser

You will need to take it to the shop find the drain. Something running that has constant power most generally its the radio but they have ways of finding power drains at the shops not in about an hour. You can always do it the old way need 2 people. 1 to pull 1 fuse at a time while the other has the positive cable disconnected. As the fuse puller pulls each fuse the battery person places the terminal about 1/8 inch from post see if theres still an ark. This has be done in the dark of course to see the tiny ark the drain will cause. But thats the backyard mechanic way of finding a drain. When you have no ark anymore look see what that last fuse was running on the fuse box.

10 amp draw draining battery overnight on 99 tahoe

I have done this before, put about a 10 amp charger on the battery. Pull the courtesy light fuse first. Look at the battery charger, it is probably charging several amps, pull one fuse at a time. When the charging amps drops down you found the fuse the controls the problem. I had a car several years ago that someone pulled the seat belt all the way out, somehow it was pulling a load and draining the battery overnight.

My Radio and clock screen has went blank volume and controls do not work the clock does not work the radio plays and CD plays but screen is dead. 2001 525I BMW

it sounds like the Multi information display has failed (MID). It is the long display with all the radio controls on it. If you want to find a known good part they are really easy to swap out. Just remove the radio knob and if you look down in there, there is a place to put a T10 (i think maybe bigger or smaller) torx T10 screwdriver.if you turn it while pulling back slightly on the screwdriver it should come right out. It usually is the component that fails but as always you may want to check your fuses.

2001 mits montero ltd, rechrgd battery & reconnect-alarm goes off

by a cheap amp meter from your local electrical shop should not cost any more than $20, disconnect negative terminal from battery and put the amp meter in between the negative post and the disconnected terminal you will find that there is a number apering on the amp meter eg. 2 amps start pulling fuses one at a time and see if the nomber drops ( always refit the fuse after you pull each one our you may have problems later working out what fuse gos were) when the nomeber dose drop you have found the circut that is at ault and you can make the choise of operating without this cercut or fixing it

good luck
