Question about 2005 Jeep Liberty
I had to get a new battery recently - old one died. After the installation, the CD player will not come on. Also I could hit the "mode" button and get to the AM preset and two FM presets. Now there is only the one AM and ONE FM. When I called the local Jeep dealership and asked them the guy who answered the phone said my CD player was dead and I needed a new one (over the phone diagnosis). A guy at work told me that it's probably locked out and I need to reset it to work but didn't know how to do that. Funny thing is that when I turn on the vehicle sometimes I hear the CD player making a noise like it's starting to change the CD. Any ideas out there?
Some of these new systems are very finicky, to reset you need to disconnect the negative battery cable wait a few minutes then reconnect, new electronics are sensitive to the difference.
It's possible the low voltage caused by the dying battery actually damaged your CD player, digital electronics are great but they have some serious weaknesses too.
Find out what brand and model your CD player is then go online and do a search for a service manual for your player, you may find an easy fix that way.
Best of luck!
