Your right about the short, just where it lyes? In the power outlet itself or the wiring to it? To check this use a multimeter and check for continuity, with the fuse out check for continuity between the positive and negative of your power outley (I expect this will be the wall of the power outlet and a pin located in the bottom center of the outlet. If you have continuitty between these you have a short. Now remove the power outlet and unplug the wiring to it. Again check it for continuity; if there is the powere outlet is shorted and you'll need to replace. If it is ok check the wires for continuity if you have continuity you've confirmed the wiring is shorted. If this is the case you'll need to run a new wire to the outlet.
I hope this may have helped,

A pulled fuse panel for a 2003 Jeep Liberty, there are 39 fuses inside a vehicle. I need to know what these fuses are and what they go to.

The fuse box diagram is a sticker placed on the inside of the fuse box cover. This cover is located on the left end of the instrument panel (driver side). The sticker just uses numbers to indicate the fuses. I will match the fuse number with its purpose:
1. Power Outlet, Front
2. Rear Fog Lights
3. Horns
4. Headlight, Low Beam, Right
5. Headlight, Low Beam, Left
6. Body Control Module / Power Door Locks
7. Spare
8. Spare
9. Right Park Light / Right Tail Light / Trailer Tow Lights / Cluster
10. Spare
11. Flasher
12. Stop Lights
13. Body Control Module / CMTC / Cluster
14. Spare
15. PDC Fuel Pump and Auto Shut Down Relays / SKIS
16. Power Outlet Rear
17. Rear Wiper
18. Radio Choke

2006 jeep liberty cigarette lighter problem

its probably not the lighter itself, it's probably lost power. check the fuse for the cig lighter and see if blown. if it is, replace. if it blows immediately you have a dead short. if not, pay attention to when it stops working. could be a problem with whatever you are plugging in, or something else on the circuit

I have a 2006 Jeep Liberty and both rear seat power windows are not operational. Has anyone ever experienced this problem and has a diagnosis? I think it could be both power window motors.

06 liberty sport tail light keeps burning out fuses are good but bulb looks like it explodes

I have the exact same issue on a 2005 Sport. My problem is the same as another solution here -- the light bulb is touching the plastic, melting it and then shorting out. The dealer told me they were issued a bulletin about this. Seems like a pretty bad design flaw to me.

Looks like it will require a completely new light assembly. Unfortunately, my problem is with both light assemblies.
