Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

OD Light My OD light flashes (blinks) on and off while I am driving down the road. If I drive with my finger on the OD button on the gear shifter, it doesnt blink on and off anymore and the Jepp drives just fine. If I allow it to blink, it goes off OD and then back on and then off again and back on.

The OD lamp on most cars blink when there are errors.
what everyone does is plug in the scan tool and see the DTC codes.
my guess your finger trick fools the TCM .
for a while, and means nothing.
TCM are easy to fool ,its just a tiny microcomputer.
TCM is tranny shift brain.
why not connect the OBD2 scan tool to the DLC and see the Px7xxx codes spit out and then look them up in the FSM for how to diagnose them.
or get it fixed

SOURCE: While I am driving my 2005 jeep grand cherokee the

I had the same exact problem and jeep looked at it over a dozen times. Jeep replaced the ignition switch and computer but they could never reproduce the problem, of course. I kept bothering Jeep until they replaced part of the wiring harness between the ignition switch the next conection. Problem solved. I had always said that it was a short in the wiring harness but they are too reliant on the in dash computer to tell them the problem. I hope this helps. P.S. this problem will kill your battery.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive doesnt work.

Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.

SOURCE: Misfire codes on my 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Regardless of why the misfire is happening, the shop needs to find and make it right. If you don't return it to them, they can claim it's a new problem, unrelated to the work they did. As I don't have any idea if any sensors were imported with the new engine or if anything was damaged on install, I really can't comment past what I've said.
Hopefully you are dealing with a reputable competent shop...If so, aside from the obvious annoyance, they should definitely take care of the problem for you. I would check fluid levels to make sure that they are good and perhaps even check sensors to make sure they are all on securely but past that I would do nothing more. As far as driving, since you don't know what's wrong, I'd limit driving to only what's necessary but no more.

OD light blinks when driving OD working I push the OD button and RPMs goes up press button again RPMs go down OD light still blinks


on most casrs, and For sure OLD cars. 90s
the OD warns you that the TCM is very unhappy
what is TCM tha that is the tranny brain.
(it shifts the tranny for you)
what we do is scan, it. in most cases its a jumper wire on a diagnostic connector, and it flashes out DTC error codes.
this is covered in the FSM, book. (factory service manual)
need one?
the operators guide tells this too, long lost im sure.

Toyota harrier 98 model (OD off )check light on/off. Why?OD means over drive?


There should be a small pushbutton switch on your shifter, either on the center of the knob if it has the shifter on the steering wheel or if its on the center console, it should be to the side of the release button that you press when switching from park to drive. It means Over Drive is off and that will not allow to engage the last gear when driving. This is useful when hauling a heavy trailer but not good when driving normally cause it may cost you more fuel economy

How to trun over drive on


If you do not have a button on your shifter or a position where OD is displayed for the shifter, then the car most likely stays in OD as a set gear and when you need drive you push the gas pedal beyond halfway down. That engages drive so that you get the power. Example would be, when your passing some1 on the highway. Hope that helps you.

I have 2002 fx4 lariat. The truck seems to shift fine during accel. As you drive along the overdrive button on shift column blinks then when you slow down for a stop the tranny jerks at around 20 to 25mph....


You will need to have the trans looked at, to find out the issue.

The blinking OD light is the trans reporting an issue with the actuators or electronics.
I have not found a flash code for this in the service manual, so I think it is a general indicator.

An orange light O/D off came on today on the dashboard around the stering wheel. Is this a problem and can I drive it


OD is toggled on and off - usually with a switch near/on the shifter.

It will not hurt to drive - but you will have no passing gear. (overdrive)
