Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

2006 Jeep Liberty will not accelerate when warning lights go on

I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem. I have a 2006 Liberty where 3 lights will go on, on the instrument panel (see page 171 of Owners Manual). I will hear a binging noise (3X) & then the ABS light (#9), the ESP/BAS light (#30), & the Electric Stability Program light (#31) will go on. When this happens the car will not accelerate (I was stuck in an intersection this morning & almost got hit. The lights will stay on & the car will accelerate again after about 10 seconds. The lights will all stay on until I bring the car into my dealer to fix the problem. This will be the 4th time in the last 2 years that I have to bring my car into the dealer to have them fix this. All 4 times it has happened when there is snow on the ground. It’s a scary feeling to be stuck like this & I’m wondering if there is some thing that my dealer is missing. Any help would be much appreciated. //

    Thanks for the replies. I have checked all of the recall bulletins on the Chrysler web-site & my car is current on all of them. Also, the dealer has replaced the control module the previous 3x & will probably replace it again when I bring the car into him tomorrow (sorry, I should have mentioned this in my 1st post). I was just checking to see if maybe my dealer was missing something.

    It just happened to me two days ago. I almost got hit in the middle of the intersection as well. What’s going on? 29,000 miles and this happens. I’m calling around today to find a fix. Does warranty cover this or is it another cost I have to eat?

    Again not a solution, but repeated module failures are generally caused by voltage "spikes" in charging system. Changing a module therefore can be then considered as fixing the result, not the cause of the problem. A problem such as this is often difficult to find, as it may be intermittent. I would make the dealer aware of this possibility, and ask if they have any means to check or track this.

  • Richard Scordino May 11, 2010

    There are websites where you can view recalls and service bulletins (tsb"s) (can't remember one off hand but have been there several times, and they weren't hard to find). Any condition which makes your vehicle dangerous to drive is generally taken seriously by dealers (they don't want to be sued).
    Off hand, I would think that your problem is coming from a control module "glitch" and has likely happened in other similar vehicles.
    Stay with this and make sure no "glitch" stays unpunished!!!
    good luck

You need to take the jeep to a dealer or a good mechanic who can retreive the codes out of the computer. You may have a module problem but I will not guess without knowing the codes.

2006 Jeep Liberty sporatice warning signals

I had the same problem with my 2006 Jeep Liberty Renegade. I shared with the Jeep service tech what I found on the internet regarding this problem. I was having the gas cap sensor to display and soon after other sensors were lighting and dinging and some times dinging without any indicator and vice versa. the service tech said he was not aware of any such complaints and recommended a diagnostic which found no trouble codes and recommended to change to the gas cap. I did so and no sooner than paying almost $100 for the service and returning home the same thing started happening again. I returned my vehicle and they called the Chrysler/Jeep service tech who obviously was aware of these complaints [Service Bulletin #14-001-06] and recommended the following: A complete system reboot. Disconnect the battery cables and short together for 15 seconds. If message returns then the problem may be with cluster. I have not had any dinging or gas-cap sensor display since this was done.

The Jeep comes with Platinum plugs from the factory.
And also a little secret-They are guarenteed from the manufacture for 1000,000 miles
Your Jeep should have Champion plugs in it.
