Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

Why does the traction control randomly activate on my 2006 jeep liberty? It is trying to activate on dry roads with no possibility of slip.

This random activation is effecting driveablity and making the vehicle potentially unsafe because it will also randomly not allow smooth acceleration from a dead stop in high traffic situtations. Been burned by too many dealerships so I am looking for a solution that doesnt involve several hundred dollars. Thanks

Your not going to get anything on
this site,but a guess

We are at home like yourself
This is just a chat room

I can tell you it WILL cost several hundred,
possibly a couple hundred, just to find the problem
(common sense)

If you have enjoyed spending extra money over the years
at a dealer & lots of folks do,why not try a local shop that
has been in the same location,same owner,same ASE Master
techs, for several years

Your going to have to pay for scan tool time, just to check the
ABS module & component test, to find a problem

Why several dealers could not find the issues, I can
not say,nor can I help, without the vehicle to work on

Your issues & feelings about dealers !

Where they even related to the current abs/trac
issue & have they been given a chance to find
something,I'm guessing your here out of frustration
& not from a failed attempt to resolve the vehicles
problem ?

SOURCE: 2003 Jeep Liberty heater fan problem

It is the blower motor resistor. Look under the passanger side dash and locate the fan housing (looks round and black in color. Then locate the resistor it will be in that housing usually withtwo ten millimeter nuts or two simple screws holding it in. unplug the harness to the resistor and remove the resistor. Part store price is approx. 50.00. Note: on aftermarket (not Jeep) resistor sometimes you have to modify the housing a little to get it in. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: The rear tailgate door latch on my 2002 Jeep

Hello. I can assist you. Most likely, your door latch is broken and will need to be replaced. Historically these were metal and rusted due to exposure, soooooo now they are plastic and after a few hundred uses, they break. You can purchase the tailgate handle and replace it yourself but my recommendation is to let the shop do it as it can be a little tricky and often the linkage rods also need to be cleaned and lubricated. The total cost of this repair is generally about $75. Thanks for choosing Fixya!

SOURCE: 2006 Jeep Liberty sporatice warning signals

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.

I have an 08 Jeep Liberty.Whenever the traction control kicks in it makes a growling noise.Any ideas what this could be?


The "growling " noise that you're hearing is the ABS pump being activated. Anytime the Traction Control System is activated or detects wheel spin/slippage, the ABS module will activate the pump because of the wheel speed variations. It is nothing wrong with the vehicle unless the TCS or ABS lights come on and stay on.

Could be bad wheel speed sensor. You need someone with a code reader that reads ABS codes.

Engine cuts out after a skid


traction control faulty. You slip and slide, your traction control activates, then here lies your problem.. after your traction control activates, it is creating an electrical short, vacuum leak, etc. look at what your traction control is operating, probably brakes. SO look at the brake booster vacuum lines or connecitons. Hope this at least gives you an idea of where to look. COuld be your traction control module is faulty.

Eds skid control activates for no reason. intermittant problem. dealer replaced power train control module, tcm processor and transmission solonoid pack. still fails.


The problem may be an intermittent problem with one of the wheel speed sensors, if one wheel speed data recieved by the ECU does not match the other 3 sensors the ECU will interpret that as a wheel slip or spin, this will cause the ECU to initiate the traction control.

Esp and traction control light come on at random. Not weather related and will stay on till the car is shut off and restarted.


Have shop or parts store like Autozone, Advance, etc clear your codes for you - they do it for free. Sounds like a glitch in system. If they come back on then you know something is wrong,
