Why is my clock and radio staying on after I remove the key in my jeep Liberty 2007


Modules or Relays are not going to sleep
or timing out & running the battery down

Have to leave the doors closed up to 1/2 hour with a
an amp meter on the battery & pull one fuse at a time
to isolate the circuit

2005 Jeep liberty dome lights do not come on when doors open and dash lights are dimmed


that's programmable on all cars.
old cars, a lever on Dome lamp or others on the HL stalk a mode.
HL = head lamps
my new car no light levers.
IT has a party mode, cute how now that old feature for 100 years
gets a name. PARTY, as all doors open for tail gate party and no light drain on battery. (death) my 08 JK has that.(wrangler)

all this is in the operators manual. in the glove box.
page 94 in mine (word not in index.party)
quote
When a door is open and the interior lights are on,
rotating the dimmer control all the way down to the OFF
detent will cause all the interior lights to go out. This is
also known as the "Party mode" because it allows the
doors to stay open for extended periods of time without
discharging the vehicle's battery." unquote, RTM?

im sure its in your book but a different page,
i got the PDF for my car, (all of them) and can search any key word.
a blessing that is....

Radio stay on after Jeep is turned off


The remedy consists of finding out the real cause of rapid battery discharge. It isn't the clock. Could be a failing starter.

Disconnect your battery and it will reset your interior light relay. I had the same problem with my Jeep Liberty

The rear dome light will not turn off. Do you


The back hatch has a switch that is supposed to be turned off when the hatch is closed. The switch could be stuck or the hatch not hitting it right. You could just take the bulb out.

Electric problem on 2002 Jeep cherokee 6


I had a similar problem, Mine turned out to be a weak cell in the battery. Here is what I did to find it. First, check what postion is the dome light switch in when this problem happens?

Disconect the negitive battery terminal. connect a volt, ohm, amp, meter in series between the negative battery terminal, and the disconected negative battery cable. How much voltage is showing on the meter? open the door does the voltage go up, or does it drop off?
Close the door wait 30, 40 second voltage should start to decrease back down to 0. This is normal the dome light uses a module to control the dome light delay.
If the voltage does not drop down to zero with the door closed after a min. or 2, select the amp setting in your meter, read the amperage draw. This is what drains the battery, the higher the amperage reading the quicker the battery will drain.
With the meter still hooked up remove one fuse at a time, when the amperage drops off you have found the defective circuit.
