Question about 2002 Jeep Liberty

1 Answer

The brake light is on. Of course this means I need brakes. My concern is that it has never gone on before in the 8 years that I have owned the jeep. I repaired the back brakes last year and the light did not come on at all.

Eight years is a long time and little wonder that your Jeep needs your attention. Which brake light are you talking of? The external brake lights that warn others that you are slowing down or the internal one that tells you that your brakes are on. The parking brakes. For external lights there is a switch that gets presses/released when you press the brake pedal. If this switch malfunctions that can let the brake light remain on as long as the Jeep has its ignition on. So, please locate, check and replace this switch. For parking brakes too there is a switch that gets released when you release the parking brakes. The remedy is the same.

Parking Brake Light won't turn off, Cruise Control won't engage


Get down and look at parking brake assembly, If you see an electrical connector, unplug it, see if that helps? If it doesn't help or causes other issues just plug it back in.
Of course that isn't the proper fix. If something wrong with parking brake assembly, get it checked out.

My back passenger brakes are squeaking and grinding. I probably need to replace my brakes, what do I need?


I find it odd, you would go on the internet,when you know you have brake issues
Unless you do your own repairs,most people should have a local garage ,you have used for years,and be planning to free up time,to at least stop by and ask some questions, or have them do a quick look at things.
Brakes need to come completely apart ,once a year, and be cleaned of rust,inspected and things lubed.
If you have brake work performed ,and ride around 8 months,they are all rusty and not working correctly

No brake lights


Dear Madam or Sir,

the cause of your concern is a defective brake pedal switch. Of course the correct operation of this switch is responsable to activate the brake lights but it also activates an interlock mechanism in the shift column, so you cannot put the lever out of P position without stepping on the brake pedal. This is meant as protective system to prevent the car from moving accidently.

Kind regards from Germany

My brake light is continuosuly on


Often, the brake light on is an indication that the brake fluid is low. You need to locate the brake fluid reservoir in the engine compartment, and check that the brake fluid is up to the recommended level. You can easily top off the fluid, but if it is low this means there is a leak somewhere in the brake system, that needs to be located and repaired. If the brake fluid level is ok and the light is on, the brake system needs to be inspected. Good luck and let me know if you have any questions.

Air bag light blinks anti brake light on


Depending on when you start counting the air bag blinks...1-5 or
5-1...that means it won't work. (Good news, if ya don't want it to.) Ford assured me it will NOT activate.

Sorry I can't help with the brake light, but...I'd check the fluid level & if the brakes work fine, I wouldn't concern myself with it.

Brake light comes while braking with no apparent cause


The pulsating sounds like rotors warped from overheating. As far as light goes, may be float or sensor at master cylinder faulty & making light trip.
