  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the Precautions section.

    CAUTION After disconnecting the negative battery cable, wait 2 minutes for the driver-s/passenger-s air bag system capacitor to discharge before attempting to do any work around the steering column or instrument.

      Both lower clockspring connector receptacles Left multifunction switch receptacle Right multifunction switch receptacle Both ignition switch receptacles Shifter interlock solenoid receptacle Sentry Key Immobilizer Module (SKIM) receptacle, if equipped
    15. Turn the ignition switch to ON position; then, release and remove the shifter interlock cable connector from the ignition lock housing receptacle.

  29. Pry off the 4 snap clips that hold the halves of the unit together and separate the unit halves.

I have a 2002 Jeep Liberty Limited, 3.7 L motor. The heater will not blow hot air. The A/C and fan work well. When I turn the temperature dial to hot, there is only cold air coming out. Can you assist me?

Jeeps are notorious for having broken temperature control (Blend Air) doors. A malfunctioning Blend Air Door actuator probably caused it to break. The dash will have to be removed to replacethe door and the door actuator.

Jeep Liberty 2002 heater does not work when engine is ideling

Check anti-freeze level and thermostat first.If not, there's some electronic/computer/sensor ********! I once replaced a heater core in a friends car only to find out she was low on anti-freeze the whole time but not enough to send an alarm or blinking light. You can have flucuations in heat when engine exurts pressure wi'll driving and while idling.
