SOURCE: replacing car stereo in a 2008 Jeep Patriot

It is pretty easy if you have a few tools and know how to use them.

1-You need to pry off the trim bezel. There are just snaps holding it on, but be careful you do not pull too hard or scratch it. Use a plastic stick or small srewdriver covered with tape.

2-There will be 4 bolts at each corner of the radio to remove.

3-Pull out the radio and and remove all the connectors and the AM/FM antenna plug.

4-Reconnect your new radio and repeat steps 2 and 1.

I did this same upgrade on my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it worked without the need for a theft code.

2008 jeep liberty flashers and lighter port wont work. changed fuses, still wont work. any help??

What flashes ? What fuse's did you change ? Only one fuse for lighter , M7 20amp located in the ( TIPM ) - totally integrated power module . There is a relay that powers that fuse , Run/ Accessory relay , also in the (TIPM) The TIPM is part of the under hood fuse box.

Where is flasher relay on 2007 jeep patriot

Nice guess, but buzzzzzzzzzz , back to go. do not collect 200 bucks.
sadly no symptoms only my wasted time on an easter egg hunt.
hazards fail on all 4 corners, or just dash lamps fail.>????
what? the cluster has a brain too, an can fail even if tail lights flash.
the Blink DRIVER IS INSIDE THE TIPM. (under hood)
did you scan it first?
if not you many be on a wild goose chase.
MK jeep , it's in the FSM book. read it or log in to

there is no such thing on 07 (no relay)
(how it really works is...) bar stool, yak.
the steering stalk is now a computer
you throw the switch, the switch closes and the brain
sends a serial data command on to the buss, called LIN buss
this goes to the hood brain, the TIPM, box.
this brain hears the command and executes it. by turning on
high power transistors drivers to flash 4 lamps. (and hazard does 4)
does hazards fail too, again, no inputs from you.
there is no fuse, nor any relay. no direct fuses like old days
but are fuses , 8,17,33 but this kills many other things.

its all 100% electronic, now. "magic" i fix this stuff for 50 years.

the TIPM has 4 outputs.
so you never told me both sides fail front and rear.
so cant help much,,,,
which of 4 lamps are dead, did you replace lamps that are dead first.
that be first if one fails. not attacking the TIPM
all 4 dead, , comm errors? scan it.
one side dead. be hard for that to happen. due to 4 drivers.b
but i dont have schematic of TIPM no body does, if i had it
id was 10x smarter even saying how to fix a TIPM.
I can. (but i know now to rev. engineer parts)

tell more get more
1: are all 4 corners dead?
2: just cluster , repeater lamps dead?
3: just hazards dead?

I have a 2007 patriot and the radiator cooling fan won't shut off. how do I fix it.

Funny usually it wont come on.
I should ask a question first is it on when the car is cold? just turn the key to on before you start the engine when it is cold and lift the hood to check.

If not then there could be lots of things. Engine always hot, worn water pump or thermostat not working properly, bad control relay.

You can check the control relay which is usually mounted on the lower rad support in between the grill and the rad. You should be able to see the relay it has fins on it.

Which is the fuse for the front wiper on 2010 Jeep Patriot?

I'll assume all else works perfect ,drives great, etc, headlights not dim running and all that? blower on high, defrost on,? etc.
fuses that are good read 12vdc both sides keyon
there is no Supposedly,it's good or bad fuses. (by direct tests)

ok, why assume there is a fuse?
in 2007 jeep uses a total new design for 12vdc power distribution
if you log in to you;d have seen that.
or any Jeep real FSM book covering your car. its all there.
I have the 7000 page book on my Jeep, (extensive coverage)

TIPM 101) "its not your fathers Oldsmobile, lol"
the new system is called,TIPM,
see that huge power box 12vdc fuses and relays made like
hopeless sized sandwich, BINGO.
(or how much junk can we stuff in a box, answer Tons)

the box is a computer. (Allen Turning to be proud)
the PCM and BCM talks to it and it does all that magic.
via can-bus serial (2wire) communication, or NETWORK.
you flip the switch and comms happen or not.
the BCM tells TIPM to turn on something,,,,,

so we SCAN it first !!!, see if there are comm errors
or see if the system sees power loss any where?.

this is the correct way. (no scan tool, you LOOSE !)
there is no power to the motor ?as you said? or the motor would not turn.
why not say how you tested power, with a voltmeter,?
or guessing?

ok there is a fuse, but is common to a vast array of functions.
there is no wiper fuse. now.

open operators guide in glove box.(page 433 +)
see the TIPM, there are no words, wiper there. (cept rear wiper)
see the 2009, i have no 2010 yet
below photo; yes this form sux for photos, ask for full size can do.
but jeep has the opr.guides online for 10 years. so.... get one?

the box has one large fuse for many functions
then a relay or transistor that runs things, by command.
getting schematics on all TIPM is hard,(i have it on my 08)
some with relays are removable and others not.


my08 has soldered in relays for wipers
deep inside,

you didnt scan the PCM so missed all this errors
i use (home only) the innova 3160, it sees ALL JEEP DTCs
including all advanced Jeep DTC codes.

ok my motor Front wiper
has 5 pins, all 5 go to the TIPM wiper brain logic.
there is no fuse. for front wiper motor at all
it uses the main power feed that runs the whole TIPM !
the TIPM is hot all times to BATT 0 fuse bank
there are other current limiting devices on the TIPM not documented.
BATT A0 is a direct battery connection
this allows the TIPM to work key in pockets
eg: i can turn on head lights and TIPM see me do that and does do it. and no headlight fuses, either, which does not mean
there is none !, just no user fuses in box, there must be electronic
current limiting on the main board, (not documented at all)

that is my total knowledge on TIPM.
i have a folder for my car , that has facts learned the hard way
on this undocumented black box.
as the least jeep should make a 1 page, TIPM , block diagram.
(maybe I will )
good luck with no scan tool, that be and impossible job.

Why do headlights flicker but not stay on?

and both lows and highs.
if both , then its a bad connection
or bad relay
loose fuse (pray it is , reseat them)
or bad control switch.
or far worse BCM relays bad.
Total Integrated Power Module (TIPM).
with this , the relays can not be changed.
get the car tested and diagnosed, if you try to guess, it will cost you big time. TIPM is not cheap.
on my 8
the HL switch is digital it sends a logic zero the BCM
he BCM receives this and send Can-bus command s to the TIPM
it receives this , processes the command and closes the relay
the lamps light
any questions? LOL

What fuse is for the horn on 2008 jeep partiot

under hood, (old post)
in the TIPM box. all fuses in 1 spot now. (and relays)
some have no fuse. and use electronics driver, (fuel pump is one)
i look in the box. the word horn does not exist. like my JK 08 has.
that means its fully electronic, as they keep doing (a good thing)
no fuse , no relay
the TIPM has a horn drivers.
the events (did you scan it first ) back in 2014?
operator hits horn
BCM brain sees you do that.
BCM sends, digital command (networked) to TIPM the brain in the TIPM
turns on its horn driver transistor sending 12vdc to the horn
got 12v to horn honking key on? if yes, the horn is bad, or its base ground is rusty, as all do in the salt belt (wiki that)

my online sources skips horn on just this jeep only,.,,,,
but i do have the MK car, FSM on CD.
and have the full schematics, of this car in SVG format.
here is that page converted. for you and BINGO, look ma, no fuse.
100% electronics, now, up to the horn, no fuses.
just like the fuel pump and others.... (no relay no fuse)
so got 12vdc to horn? honking key on? both horns dead.
some have 2 horns, shown below.
scan tool ,not show DTC errors. ?????

2008 jeep patriot wiring has gone haywire. took

Open the power distribution center box near the battery and remove the asd relay that should shut it down. as for the problem itself, it could be a bad relay, a bad ignition switch or some odd ball thing that needs testing to find.
Good luck!
