Question about 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport

4 Answers

Ignition turns but no start

I turn the key, the ignition makes its clicking noise, the dash lights light up but 2007 Jeep Liberty Sport does not start up. Is it the battery or starter ? or something else. . . ? I found the positive cable connect (the thing on top the battery) buried with greenish fluid/paste, so I wiped all that off got rid of any hard corrosion and still no start. Nice click and my door locks work beautifully but no vroom. I want vroom :D
Any ideas ? Thank you

    i am about to get my car back from the shop. Took 3 days and 2 mechanics to find it. It is a broken compenent in the steering column that cuts all power to the ignition. it is a 200.00 job and is not covered under warrantee. I am writing a letter to Jeep. The mechanic said he has never seen this issue before but apparently my 2005 jeep and yours have the same issue.

    I have the same problem right now OUCH 200.00 and not covered in the warranty? My husband just took my battery to be tested, but now I guess it will come back that it is not the battery.

It is an issue in the steering column. I am getting my 2005 back today, finally. 2 mechanics and they said they have never seen this issue before!!
The steering wheel has to be pulled off and the part replaced. It is cutting all power to the ignition switch. It is not the starter or the Alternator... it is in the steering column. It should be about 200.00 to fix.

I must also report a silly solution...are you using the spare key? My dealer gave me a spare key and I tried to use it and found that it only opens the door

If the car clicks it might be the starter. But sometimes on Chrysler/Jeep if the car doesn't have enough voltage it will do that too. Try to get the battery tested first.

What could be the cause for my vehicle NOT to even turn over, but all dash lights & security seem to work?


the dash draws but 100x less thatn the head lights.
so even a near dead battery make weak lamps work
starter needs 100amps
the had lamps 10amps
the days 0.1amps 100x less.

for get the wheels, engines dead ,wheels are last. never first.

why not jumper cable start the car just like all AAA members do.
see? do it.
and the results will solve this fastests.

if car cranks and starts and runs. then the battery was low
if low charge it , if it wont take a charge replace it.
if it does hold a charge and goes dead driving the charges system is failing, if it fails, clean battery terminals first. and at ever 30k miles.
there are many systems on the car,
each must work in there turn.

The engine light came on recently in my 2007 Jeep Liberty. Everything seems normal, engine sounds good, it is not overheating, etc...could it be something easy to fix?


This may or may not work depending on the feature install in your vehicle.
To find out, put you Jeep in park, turn the ignition off, now with our starting the engine turn the ignition on,off,on,off,on,off,on this must be completed in 10 seconds. If you have a digital odometer the number should change shortly, the first number will be 12, each number will flash 3 times. The last number will be 55 which means "end of codes". If you don't have a digital odometer it will flash the codes on your check engine light.
If this works write the codes down and I can tell you what they mean. If it doesn't work then as far as I know your vehicle requires a code reader in order to read the codes in your Jeeps computer.
If you want you can take your Jeep to Autozone and they will read the codes for you.
