Fuse for 2011 Jeep Liberty for turn signals

usa car?
no job stated
no problem or symptoms stated.
does car drive ok, all other features on car work ok?
that be first thing a shop guy would do, for sure.
learn that jeep is replacing some cave man fuses,with automatic,
electronic(magic) current limiters,
we've used these in industry for 45 years, car makers are just
catching up to this method.
its not fully deployed yet. and never will, but. is on many low current circuits, (end class)
( this car is not a 1993 jeep, not at all)

easter egg hunt 1000.
KK jeep 2011. (2008 major changes)
did you lose the operators guide, it covers fuses, present.
did you look at all the names on the box, lid?
see no turns, there.
i have no kk book so i will do the mitchells , log in and look for you
(hint so can you)
I see the car has SCAN codes DTC errors (lots) for blinkers turns.
scan it yet?
are all dead, all weak, stuck on, flash to fast or too slow
note how I cant guess?
your car like my car, has TIPM box, under hood.
all boxes in one, and for sure the magic fuse, i told you about above.
im looking in your TIPM box now, ITS NOT THERE.
yes, for stop.park/backup but no TURN FUSE
as I expected. for 2008+
so why not post full symptoms and not ask for things that do not exist. (yes it has current limiters, but not ATC fuse, here)
try that
lets pretend , you said all blinkers (turns)
are and asked how to diagnose this,
you then said all other things work. car drives, etc.
I then tell you scan it;.
sorry cant fix cars with no scan tools, x10 that 2008 and up.
scan it.
get car serviced?
buy ,rent,borrow , the tool.
lets say you saw
high error, 1 bulb is burned out.
lets say got low error , just 1 one , it tells you here.
"shorted bulb or wire " to ground.
if non of this is clear, why ask?
why not get car fixed,like 99.9% do , but not me.

Are you getting annoying messages like "Your PC's Protection is expired. Click hear to download "some fake anti-spyware" program" or "Please buy "Some fake anti-spyware" product to Fix the errors found in your computer" when you start your PC?

Obd2 scan tool don't comunicate with the pcm, what to do?

Carlos, see if there is a fuse blown to the OBD2 port, the obd port some time shares with other accessories/things like cigarette lighter.
Check all fuses, the OBD will not work if fuse is blown.

How do i get the (tachometer) to work again on my 2004 model 320 V6 Isuzu pickup. It used to work and after a short circuit on the gearbox loom it stopped working.

Auto (a/t) or sticK>>>???????????????????????
answering for pesky a/t
the tacho gets its signal from ECU spark and crank sensor
the transmission sends and receives signals from the a/t box
VSS speed (veh. speed. sensor)
shift selections (tell TCM YOU DEMANDS)
and the TCM shifts the box via shift solenoids.

now if the ECU/PCM sees error's here it can shut even tachometer?.
this feature killler is called Limp-home MODE.
so what to do, as in all cases. (besides mending those wires)
check fuse
the SCAN the pcm/tcm with any obd2 scan tool made

post all Dtc Errors. and can advise.

got P07xx errors/ means transmission the 7.

When I turn on my laptop two programmes keep popping up and can't get rid of them and it is running slow

Hi Margaret. Don't know which operating system you are using but it's basically the same operation for al of them.

Goto the Start button and type msconfig in the run or search box and press enter. When the System Configuration box pops up, click on the Startup tab at the top. You should see a list of all the programs that startup when you switch on.

Look for the ones you want to stop and un-tick the little boxes at the side. There may be others that you know you don't need to startup every time you switch on. When you have finished click on Apply and OK. It may tell you to restart the computer, that's ok. If a box pops up to tell you that someone has been in to the System Configuration just click the box so it does not tell you that again, as it was you that changed things. If it's running slow it could also be infected with malware. That will need to be scanned and the malware found and removed. Malwarebytes is excellent for that. Just google it.
Hope this helps.

My screen keeps telling me to auto scan channels?

This is for basic cable TV. If you have basic cable, go ahead and let it scan channels. If you have digital cable or anything else and use a INPUT or HDMI or RCA to watch TV then just ignore the scan channels prompt as you have a cable box that handles all that for you.

Have a hp laptop with vista just stopped working..keep getting the same error about not being able to connmect to usb video device etc..I have downloaded tells me everything is...

Try downloading Advanced System Care FREE version. It corrects errors and has many other features too. If you run it once a week it repairs most of your problems.
If that don't work for ya, you may have to get into you bios settings and make sure USB capabilities are enabled.
You can also try going to hardware and uninstall it, the reinstall it again.
It doesnt sound like any kind of Malware problem, but you can also download and scan your system. If nothing else it helps keep Malware out of your computer.

01 WV jetta comunication error when trying to use the obd scaner

I worked on a Jetta with a similar problem of no communication. By chance do you have an aftermarket radio in the car? If so the buss lines that carry the vehicle comunications may not be connected thru the radio. The data lines run thru all the computer modules so they can talk to each other. This could be the problem.

Can't scan

This sort of thing can be down to the fact the settings for communication to the printer is separate for printing/faxing/scanning. So you will need to find the scanning device (will usually be called HP3050 regardless, or something along the lines of that) and make sure it's set to communicate through USB and no other means.
