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.

Re: 2006 Jeep Liberty will not accelerate when warning...
When you go back in for this have them check the wiring for the speed sensor at the rear axle this i see has a history of repair probloms and will cause problems with the abs and other problems

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.
