Have the idle air-bypass valve tested, it controls idle speed and may be defective

2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

Car will not stay turned ON when cold


Try this. When you first try to turn your engine on, keep your foot on the gas pedal. The car should turn over but not start. (don't worry, its not supposed to). Take your foot off the gas and turn the ignition on again, but Don't touch the throttle this time. That should set your choke correctly. To summarise: Turn key with foot on Gas. Take foot off Gas, and turn key again.

Engine will turn over, but car will not stay cranked.


You'll have to figure out if it is a fuel or ignition problem.
Is the check engine light on ? Have you checked for trouble codes ?
It uses an idle control valve to adjust the idle speed. The valve could be dirty or failing, or the throttle body could be dirty.

Ok, engine won't crank , I can hear all relays clicking but no cranking of the engine, usualy after 10-20 atempts it starts but latetly it is getting more dificult,allso I noticed that the shift position...


Try starting the car in neutral. Keep your foot on the brake and put on the emergency brake and try to start it in neutral instead of in park. The vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch which does not allow you to start the car in reverse or any of the drive gears. You can only start the car in park or neutral. You may have a problem with the shifter or the shifter cable. On some vehicles the shifter cable can be adjusted.

How do i put my 4x4 on my 95 yukon......on park or neutral. and do i have to put my foot on the brake?


You can shift between 2Hi and 4Hi when the truck is moving. Just let off the gas and shift it. But in order to shift to Neutral or 4Lo you need to stop the truck and shift the transmission into neutral then shift the transfer case.

Car will not start everything comes on


Does it crank? If it doesn't is the car in park or neutral? and if it is can you retry to put it in park or neutral again, no help? starter bad? Low battery may turn all the lights on but may not be high enough to crank. The security light on? If it is and you leave the key on a bit does it go out or stay on? If it stays on do you have a different key that works the car? try it first, If it cranks and still doesn't start does it have fuel? Nor just on the gauge but take the cap off and shake the car and listen for the gas slossing around. it can be out and the gauge wrong, maybe someone took your gas while you were sleeping?
