Jeep Liberty 2005 Cannot shut tailgate window......

When I pull the latch out to open the tailgate, the window and the door will open, but the window will not close. This is because the metal clamp that holds the window shut does not rotate down in position to catch the window when it closes. I have to press the transponder on my key for it to pop down so I can close it. Normaally, when the tailgate is opened, the release of the window repositions the clamp accordingly. It doesn't do that anymore. Also, when you pull the latch to the first "stop", it does not release the window like it's supposed to. The latch is not engaging that clamp. I've tried WD40 which actually worked at first, but the problem has returned. I have a 2006 jeep liberty and the other day I went to open the tailgate like normal, but not using the key fab just using the handle. It open correctly, no noices and nothing broke off. But when I went to close the swinging door then the window(hatch). The hatch would not close. My husband and I can not figure out how to fix it. My liberty is out of warranty too. It will not close, we have to tie a bungie cord around it. help please. Its snowing and cold outside, I need to get it fixed.

The fuse for the stop lights is in the fuse panel loacated inside the vehicle (see picture below) and will be in the number 12 position and should be a blue 15 amp fuse. This should be in your owners manual if you have one. If you need an owners manual for your vehicle, you can email me at csautomotivecars@att.net with your make, model and year and I will be happy to email you a copy of it. Don't worry, it's no cost to you. I hope this helps you and good luck.

It should be on the fuse cover. Do you have your owner's manual? It should also be near the back of that.

put the back of car on jack stands and secure the front tires so it does not roll and then remove the bolts off the back of the caliper there is normally two one at top and one at bottom and spray it with some kind of oil for rust and make sure you have the right size socket before you try to loosen them and once caliper is off and the old pads removed take one of the old pads and squeeze the piston on the caliper back in by using a "C" clamp and also remove some of the brake fluid from the master cylinder before you do this put the new ones back on and check the brake fluid and make sure it is full and then pump the brakes to make sure you have a good pedal also put some "No Squeak" brake stop on the back of the pads so they don't squeak they will have that where you buy the pads from

Its probably some wiring problem. Does anyone have a problem with the swicth not caming on or going off. Questioned about one 2005 because was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

Engage four wheel drive Jeep Liberty
To engage four wheel drive pull up on the handle in the center console with the letters, 2H, 4H, N, 4L. One notch will put it in 4H - four wheel drive, high - which will be good for almost all off road or slippery conditions. Just leave the regular transmission in Drive, unless you really know what you are doing. Normally, you will never need to use 4L - four wheel low -except under very extreme conditions. If you do, you are not supposed to go over 25 mph because it will over rev the engine.
If you are going in snow with four wheel, high - 4H - you will get where you want to go. Remember though, if you are on ice or it is very slippery it will not help you stop. Many accidents happen to people who are over confident while driving in four wheel drive.


Also, supposedly, you can shift from four wheel to two wheel or vice versa from a stop or moving. BUT, the transmission is not synchronized so if you are stopped and the handle is very hard to pull, start moving frontwards or backwards, slowly, THEN shift it into four wheel drive (or back to two wheel drive).


They used to say you shouldn't go over 45 mph in four wheel drive, but they don't anymore. Let's face it, you really shouldn't be going even that fast if you are on an icy road or one that is very slippery with snow.


Some say you shouldn't use 4WD unless you are stuck somewhere. That's OK I guess as long as there is someone else around to help you if you are REALLY stuck. As for me, if it starts looking tricky, I shift into 4H!


Last but not least, DO NOT drive in 4WD on smooth pavement. At the least you will wear the tires down and possilby break stuff in the transmission because this kind of 4WD is not intended for smooth pavement.

I think your transfer case position sensor got loose. Here is a drawing of the thing, them also, could check this image:

No es muy claro; estoy adivinando. Si este es el esquema de su tablero de instrumentos...


738bb8e3-4d00-41e8-b63f-1324c1118a05.jpg

El indicador numero "5" se refiere al sensor de presion de los neumaticos.

Esta luz se enciende cuando hay un neumatico bajo condicion de presion . La luz tambien se encendera si existe algun problema con un sensor del neumatico . La luz permanecera encendida hasta que la presion de los neumaticos es correcta o el problema con el sensor se corrige .Esta luz se encendera momentaneamente como una comprobacion de la bombilla cuandose arranca el motor .Cuando el Monitor de Presion de los Neumaticos Light Warning esta iluminado, uno o mas de tus llantas estan considerablemente desinfladas Usted debe detenerse y revisar la llanta lo antes posible ,para inflarla hasta obtener la presion correcta, como se indica en los neumaticos (cartel de informacion del vehiculo). La Ccnduccion con neumaticos no significativamente inflados lo insuficiente hace que el neumatico se sobrecaliente y puede conducir a la rotura del neumatico.

Las llantas desinfladas tambien reduce la eficiencia del combustible y la vida de la banda de rodadura de los neumaticos, y puede afectar el manejo del vehiculo y capacidad de frenado. Cada llanta,incluyendo el de repuesto , se debe revisar mensualmente cuando frio y ajustado a la presion de inflado recomendada como especificada en la etiqueta del vehiculo.


Suerte.

2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

Just purchased, 130,00 miles. Transfer selector arm in 2wd, dash says ''Part Time'' and vehicle is in 4wd. Can tell by the noise after you reach about 30mph and higher. Part Time 4wd does not appear to be disengaging. If I put the lever in 4wd the Part Time light goes off.
