    yes it idles ok on park. the idling is normal in drive even when not moving. the problem only occurs when I have to match the brakes all the way down when on high speed.

    thanks, but i think the brake is fine. I had the bakes checked and serviced. A friend of mine suggested that it could be my torque converter, or Idling sensor.I am really confused

    I just saw the recall tbi on the jeep liberty, and it seems the problem is only there when the brakes are applied. the recall is for a leaking master cylinder . leading air and fluid

My wife had a similar problem with a 2003 Jeep Liberty. Her problem was that it stalled and she could not get it restarted unless it sat off for 30-45 minutes. It seemed like it was a problem with the alternator and battery but it had just gotten a brand new battery in it and we discovered the starter would roll over after the Jeep sat. We had it towed to the dealership and they replaced the Crank Sensor and the Timing Sensor and the Jeep now runs fine again. Side note: They charged us about $200 to fix these parts.

Time to check sensors. I'd start with tps, map and mass air flow sensor if used. Many "supermarket" style parts outlets will scan your system for codes. Start there to give yourself some general direction on what to look at.(of course you will check ignition components, cap, wires, rotor and coil... believe it or not, even if there is residue around plugs, it generally won't give you that problem, though it should be blown out of there with compressed air or something before removing plugs)

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Liberty Heater fan motor speed control

Sounds like low speed coil in the Blower Fan resistor block has failed. The Blower Fan Resistor Block is usually located in the air ducting adjacent to the Blower Fan. The Resistor Block consists of 3 or 4 coils of special resistance wire attached to terminals which connect to the wiring that comes from the fan switch and then to the Blower Fan. The block is on the output side of the fan unit so that the airflow from the fan past the coils inside the duct assists in preventing them from overheating and burning out.
Access to the Resistor Block is from under the dash. To replace, remove the multi-pin connector and then undo the screws holding in the block. Check air duct for leaves and dirt which may have caused the coils to fail. .Replacement is the reverse procedure

SOURCE: The Jeep Liberty Keeps stalling at idle or anytime

check for vacuum leaks on every hose connected to the engine intake manifold. If all hoses tight at both ends, remove idle air control (IAC) valve as well as hose from throttle body. clean valve, idle air passages, and throttle body with carb cleaner. Hope this clears up the problem. Let me know if you have any questions.

Could be the speed sensor has loose wiring. Speed sensor is usually located on the end of the transmission housing. Here is a link to the same problem by another person and a possible solution.

Speedometer not working on my 2002 jeep liberty.

The routing of the speed sensor wires is located on the rear differential. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off the speed sensor quit working and that includes the transmission shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. We went to a dealer and got the replacement kit for $32.00. He also took the time to encase the wires in a plastic tubing to avoid this problem again.

No speed when gas pedal is to floor tranny light came on

With the oil light coming on and the brake pedal being hard to press I would say that the engine stopped hence no vacuum -no power assist from the booster.- hard brake pedal. The lock uo feeling may come from the engine seizing up while you were still in gear

You must have a piston stuck in one caliper, and it's not releasing the pressure off your brake pad.

Jeep Liberty 2002 woahs !
by porth21 - 2/1/09 7:35 AM In reply to: Jeep Liberty 2002 speedometer not working by Dannywon
I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited with the same problem. The main problem I have found to be the routing of the speed sensor wires located on the rear difrential. They are 2 blue wires on my jeep and probably the same on yours. The problem is that they rub on the E-brake cable and once the wire is exposed they short and the speedometer and any other options running off they speed sensor quit working and that includes the tranny shift points and can cause the torque converter to not unlock and cause stalls. I am having the same problem for the third time and chrysler and jeep are both aware of the problem and unwilling to repair the problem or post a recall.
