2004 jeep liberty won't move when put in gear (like brakes are locked).crank it in neutral put in gear it will go till i touch brakes then won't move again.WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS THING.


gear, is this a Manual trans? or AUTO you said gear.
what gear, please name the gear, 1,2,3,4,5 R
or PRNDL ( a/t box auto matic) what shift lever selection?
what is out door air temp, you do know brakes can get wet and freeze right?
it wont go you meant? until brakes are touched, key word won't?

ok engine only starts in PRNDL set to N??
is that it?
and then when you shift to D, the car will not move
what about the other gears.? try them all yet?

my guess (wild) is that you dont know how park lock out works.?
that you must hold the brake pedal down to shift to park or neutral.
is that it? (read operators guide?)

my guess is car is not drive-able. key point1 (a dead car)
point 2, engine starts and runs. and races on demand with gas foot.
point 3, im lost. (no trans stated or clear symptoms.)

my jeep has 6speed manual box
and the clutch allows me to start car.
on Automatics trans must be in park or neutral to crank engine.

"it will go till i touch brakes"



I read that 10 times,
my 2nd guess. the engine stalls ?

IS THAT IT, stalls means engine RPM is 0
and right foot actions are dead.
and all dash lamps glow, telling you STALL is now.

03 jeep grand cheroke 4.0 2x4 = no start with new battery installed. No lights on the dash at start


I would start at the key switch and check for power there.
It's possible the switch is not turning completely on or to start.

2000 Jimmy - starts but can't shift into gear - can't push button in


Check ALL the fuses !!! Does the brake lights work? if not,, the shift inter lock may be disabled ,,, if the lights work the interlock solenoid might be the culprit . You should be able to get in gear by turning the ignition switch off then turning to the first selection ,,don't turn it untill the dash lights come on ,,with the key in that position you should be able to shift the lever to put it in gear ,,,,dont move the key untill its in the correct gear

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 that will not start, it wont even crank at all!! This jeep is becoming a real pain in the ****. It has been driven every day and has driven normal like always...


Okay, headlights are nice and bright and battery is still fully charged, if theres no dash lights and doesnt start and you have replaced the ignition swith, this switch is the elctrical switch not the key part correct, then the onlt other thing i can think off that ive run into on these wranglers is a wiring harness that supplies power to ignition system, this wiring comes throught the firewall into cab at the center area of the dash there it has a connector that connects it together, the wires heat up and melt in the connector this is a main power wire in this harness that melts, this harness contains about 4 to 7 wires,hold the key in the crank postion and start moving wire harnesses around under the dash, you will need to look closely ther are not that many harness under that dash, it will be in the center and toward driverside. hope this helps.

How do I get the maintainance required light off


Turn the key off, hold down the odo button on the dash, turn the key on and keep holding the odo button for about 7 seconds. The display screen on the dash will start to flash, release the button and press it down again and keep holding it until the display stops blinking. All done.

i have the same problem with 04 turn your key until the lights on the dash come on and see of the security light is flashing if so wait about 10 min for the security system to reset as soon as the light stops flashing turn the key off then your car should start right up
