My 96 DeVille did the same thing. Behind or under your fuse box under the hood there are some relays. one is called the "inadvertant power" relay. it should be labeled by the fuse box. If this is bad its like a 12-15 dollar part. easy to repair. i hope this helps and its an easy fix. it worked for me. if not....sorry.

2008 Jeep Liberty error code gate on dash and interior light will not turn off got new battery and still doing it


can i buy a comma? says vanna white?? LOL !
ok, the battery drains, so you got a DRAIN, called phantom drain.
or dark current.!!
we use a thing called an AMMETER (DMM) to find all drains, easy

do you have one, want to learn or just wanting wild guessing.

on any 08 liberty, we check the scan tool data.
oops it shows battery low, wow even the PCM sees that.

new batteries do not fix drain.
nor dead alternators.

get it serviced, by a pro. ?

1: charge battery (rested its 12.6vdc )
2: start engine, scan tool shows, what DTC errors (post em')
3: battery voltage is , 13.3, to 15vdc running, if not charge system is faulting.
4: ok all that is ok, i then key off and measure bettery cable neg lug drain current, if 0.010a to 0.040a its ok, if over 0.1 amps its a drain.
we then find the drain cause, ASK? its not hard with a meter.
but i bet all you wanted is a wild guess.

I have a 2001 Saturn L200 sedan. The dash, radio, and gear shifter lights have been flikering randomly when the head lights are on. I was told it was a sensor or something in the steering colom. Any I


Your battery is not charged and gets drained constantly, dome lights doesn't take much voltage to be lit. Get a voltmeter and check on the battery. Engine off it should be all charged up and 12V ish. Try to start your engine, should be 13-14v charging, if not, then it is your alternator not charging or SOMEHOW your battery doesn't receive enough charging from the alternator.
When you turn on the headlight while engine is running and died off because the alternator some how couldn't supply enough current to power both headlights and motor ignition system
Get your alternator tested, before that all connections between alternator and battery is NOT LOOSE, or broken or damaged. Then go to auto electrician. Then sort out your fuses later.

Draining Battery


Check the alternator. You can observe your interior dome light or the vehicle headlights as you rev the engine. If the light intensity changes with as the RPMs of the engine changes, then you have a faulty alternator.

Engine wont turn over even though all dash lights work when key on.


This is the classic symptom of a bad battery. Your engine requires a lot of power to crank but the little lights in your dash require very little. if the battery is even a little drained it won't crank the engine, but everything else will seem to work fine. Either jumpstart the car (if it starts, then you likely need a new battery) or test the voltage at the battery terminal when trying to start the car. If the voltage drops below 12 volts you need a new battery (or at least a freshly charged one)

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on


Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

My 2004 Pacifica wont start at all, the gear is in park but the gears on my dash panel are all lit up, no matter what gear I put it in. I changed the Transmission Solenoid cause their was a hole in it...


What Transmission Solenoid did you replace ? Pressure control solenoid ? Shift control ? P0522 code is not saying oil pressure is low , It's saying the PCM is seeing sensor pressure low ! Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits with a volt meter ? An this has nothing to do with your gears lit up . Different problem .

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

1996 nissan 200sx with a new battery and starter but when key is turned there is nothing no click no rotation what so ever the clutch is depressed lights come on with full intensity but the car wont turn...


check the wires on the starter motor,there's a small one that sometimes gets dirty and loses contact or may even be off altogether,this supplies the feed to starter to tell it to turn over, or try running a live wire from the battery straight to this small terminal on starter motor body..CAUTION, make sure you are in neutral gear with handbrake applied, turn ignition on so lights on dash are lit up, then a quick touch of this "live" wire should make engine turn over or start,if so the problem is the small wire has no live feed or needs cleaning.
hope this helps.
