Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

How do I 2006 Jeep Liberty after replacing battery?

Car ran down overnight due to leaving key in switch in accessory setting. Tried a jump start to no avail. Car started but stopped when accelerator pushed down. Now, no grinding sound as in engine trying to kick over. No sound, but dashboard lights up. Man at parts place were I went for battery mentioned an anti-theft issue, BUT I Have the key and I still cannot get it to start.
It seems senseless to me to have to have the car towed to a dealership for a simple battery replacement issue. There were NO start-up or electrical problems before the switch was left on over night from aproximately 5:00pm to 6:00 am.the next day.
Any recommendations on what approach I can try next wiould be greatly appreciated.

Examine the relays for ignition and fuel under the hood and or the fuse panel under the dash.... replace them... or swap them out for an accessory that uses a relay that isn't critical to the operation of the vehicle...

How do I start my tahoe after leaving key in ignition and security feature shut off all power


Did you try jump starting the vehicle?

If you left the key on all the accessory functions where on and this will cause the battery to go dead overnight. Jump starting to see if the vehicle will start is a good way to determine if the battery did go dead. Depending on how old the battery is it may have gone bad by letting it go dead overnight. If its more than a few years old it may not be a bad idea to just replace it.

2002 jeep liberty wont start makes a clicking sond


A mechanic would check for voltage at the starter, the neutral safety switch, and the key switch. Also check the ground connections.
You could have a dead cell in the battery.
Will it jump start ?

We replaced the starter in our 2006 jeep liberty but it still will not start, we checked all of the relays; the lights, dash lights, windows and wipers all work but when we turn the key there is no sound...


Test the battery, just because it can illuminate lights does not mean that it can start the car. To verify this take a volt meter and test the voltage of the battery, you should be getting a voltage of 12.6v, then test the voltage while trying to start the car. you you will want a voltage in the area of 11.0 volts. if it is lower then that you will want to replace the battery.

2002 jeep liberty Turn key switch makes loud clicking noise. Light and radio will come on. Car is able to be jumped, will stay start until turn off, and will not restart


See that? Every once in a while I'm right!!! Reason is that the starter draws far more than anything else in the car. Lights and radio can easily be run by an otherwise ineffective battery, but when loaded (starter draws a bit less than 200amps), the battery will fall flat on its' face! When you jump it, the car is running off the alternator and seems to be OK, till you turn it off again.

Tried to start jeep liberty 2005 went and opened


Aside from the part about the remote, I would first check to make sure the battery has a solid 12volts in it and that the terminal connections are clean. After this, then check to see if operation has been restored. Jumping across a battery with bad connection often prevents the vehicle from starting. Also try closing the doors and then locking and unlocking drivers door with the key itself. This should re-set the security system
