If it has an electric power steering system, the battery light indicates alternator failure ( belt or alternator problems ) and there is insufficient power to run the power steering
again if the drive belt for the alternator is broken or missing , that will put on the battery light and there will be no power steering as the power steering pump will not be driven either

My battery died on my 2009 equinox & after I charged it the stabilitrak off light came on and now the vehicle is VERY hard to steer,,any ideas????


Heavy steering is an indication that the drive belt for the power steering is loose or missing. IT may be that that is the reason for a flat battery as the belt will also drive the alternator and the battery has drained down trying to supply the power to the electrical parts.. With a flat battery there may be a problem with the CPU program so use a code reader to reset it and then see if the light comes on.

2009 jeep patriot. the check engine light cam on took it to auto zone and they said it was a gas cap. they fiddled with it and shut the code off. i drove it less then 10 miles and it is back on.


Did you replace the gas cap? A gas cap that does not seal properly will allow air to be drawn into the evap system and will give you a corresponding check engine light and code. Caps are relatively inexpensive, so buy one and replace your old one.

Hi How do I reset the CHANGE OIL REQUIRED light on the 2009 Jeep Patriot with CVT Thank you


Most if not all scan tools have an option to clear or reset codes without the use of any tools or touching the battery. Consult your tool's manual for information on how to do it with your particular model. If you want to try the fee way ,, unhook the battery , turn on the headlight switch for 10 minutes, then reconnect your battery , the codes should have cleared , if not you have to h ave them cleared with the scan tool

Amateur radio installation in 2009 jeep patriot


To run any wire through the firewall, find a spot that is both reachable and unobstructed on both sides of the wall. I generally use a very short bit so after penetrating, it does not accidentally plunge into other wiring or components, or I use a collar over the bit (a small piece of tubing, leaving only 1/4" of bit exposed) I sometimes also "cheat" by poking a hole in the rubber boot where the steering column goes through.
Whenever passing a wire through sheet metal you must install a grommet. (if none are available, you can make one by using a piece of rubber tubing or the cut off end of an old tire valve.)
When tapping power from the battery, you will need to use a relay and switch attached to the "accessory on" side of the ignition switch, to prevent whatever you are installing from remaining on after the vehicle has been turned off. Use fuses in all new power sources as well to protect the vehicle and your new install from damage.
In creating a new circuit, you have the opportunity to use shielded wire, which will prevent stray electrical "noise" in your set" not a bad idea to do that.
good luck
