Question about 2008 Jeep Liberty
Started and ran fine this morning. Drove about 5 miles and shut off normally. Would not crank or start. Dash lights come on when ignition is turned on, but it will not crank. Door locks do not respond to the RKE. Tried a second Sentry Key, but still had the same results. Lights and horn are OK and battery is OK. What is wrong?
Automatic transmission ? Try moving the gear selector to neutral . park neutral safety switch ,maybe. If placing gear selector in neutral doesn't do anything , looking at a wiring diagram to see what all is involved in the starting system . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ?

Click the search button then the blue link .Do you know what a relay starter is , what a totally integrated power module is ? The starter control is controlled by a control module (computer )

The door security has nothing to do with the jeep no starting. Check your electrical leads and also terminal leads that run to the battery. If you can, get your battery and your alternator tested to see if theyre any good. If your dash indicates the following while driving;" Transmission Overheat", then, with the engine running, check your transmission fluid level. If the transmission dipstick indaictes that the amount of fluid is low add maybe a quart to it. if you do this again and you find thats its doing the same thing, then there might be a couple of things wrong;
- 1. You may have a leak somewhere. Check your lines and check around the transmission pan. If you find a leak around the pan, than that means that you need a transmission filter kit. This includes a pan gasket and filter.
- 2. If you lift the hood and look over to the left (standing at the front of the car) and find the reserve tank to have a dark color liquid in there, open the top and see what color it is. If it smells and looks like Transmission fluid, then that means you have a busted radiatior. If you open the radiatior cap and look down into it and see the that the color of the fluid is a pepto bismal- looking color, then its deffinatley time for a radiator replacement and flushing of old fluid out of the system.
-3. Transmission is burning up gears and needs to be replaced. i dont know what jeep was thinking when they put a three speed transmission in a car of that size that idles high beacuse of the gears, when it should be a five speed that idles lower being thats a bigger size car.
-4. Check your fuel lines and your fuel filter.
-5. The sensor that sends a signal to the number one cylinder to fire may have gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Can't be done. All the safety items are controlled by the ECM.
If the ECM senses the car moving via the speed sensor, it will disable the nav. To disable the safety would be to disable the computer and the car will not run.

get someone to hold hand on horn then tap it with a light hammer ,then when itts working give it a squirt of engine oil on the vibrating part so it runs behind it

IF you have A/C on it.. you might turn it on for a few houres.. it will de-moist the car.. put the blower on the feet and head section ..

Check your fuse thats a new vehicle so you might want to let the dealer look at it if its not a fuse. It should still have dealer warranty
