The contact stated that the key was stuck in the ignition and could not be removed. An investigation into the ignition switch discovered a sing broke part before the tumbler. The approximate failure mileage was 191,000. It is Dorman part number is 924 — 704. You can get this part on Amazon for much cheaper than you can purchase a new steering column from the Jeep dealership.
The approximate failure mileage was 120,000. Now at 7000 miles from new the problem has reoccurred. Adding More Information If you would like to help the Modified Life community by adding any missing 2007 Jeep Liberty information or adding a new remote car starter wiring schematic to our resource, please feel free and post it at the bottom of this page. The contact attempted to start the vehicle but the key would not turn in the ignition. The contact was able to remove the key from the ignition while the vehicle was started. Either which way will work. This is where you can verify that the ignition switch is, in fact, sending a signal or not to the starter relay.
I took it to a dealer who tried several times to fix it, but was unsuccessful, even with advice given by the Chrysler technical hotline. A google search brings up hundreds of unsatisfied owners. The contact stated that the vehicle was vandalized, which caused the vehicle to have required repairs. The ignition switch input which is a power supply, which will only work if the actuator pin has not broken inside the ignition switch actuator shaft and a ground signal sent by the Engine Control Module or computer. No cancellation allowed once order is placed.
In theory, if the starter relay has power going into it on even one terminal and the signal wire from the relay to the starter is good, I should be able to install a jumper wire and get the starter to crank the engine over. More about this below Power supply to the relay The starter relay is protected by at least 2 different fuses on this year Jeep. I can meet you at the dealership or anywhere you please. Diagnoses Now that we know how the starter relay operates, my next step was to go directly to the starter relay and check the inputs. The manufacturer was notified of the failure.
One of the most difficult jobs is figuring out where wiring for remote start, remote starter, remote vehicle starter, remote car starter, remote auto starter, remote automotive starter, remote auto starter or remote start module should be connected to on your 2007 Jeep Liberty. When electromagnetic coil is energized, it draws the movable contact away from normally closed fixed contact and holds it against the other normally open fixed contact. The situation is not usually noticed until the vehicle is in motion and one the the effected systems is used turn signal, hvac, radio systems that are effected and not receiving power are turn signals, radio, airbag, hvac. While driving home the vehicle shut off unexpectedly on a busy five lane 50 mph road. The harness they installed is the one Chrysler supplies and requires for vehicles with an overhead console, which my vehicle is equipped with. The automotive wiring harness in a 2007 Jeep Liberty is becoming increasing more complicated and more difficult to identify due to the installation of more advanced automotive electrical wiring.
This 2006 Jeep Liberty came in as a no crank condition. The approximate failure mileage was 65,000. This verifies a few things in starting circuit. The problem is that this harness will not work as required for the 2007 Jeep Liberty. So be sure to keep that in mind when doing your testing. Stop spending countless hours trying to figure out which remote start wires go to which 2007 Jeep Liberty electrical module or automotive harness.
I request that all 2007 liberties that have the dealer installed trailer package with the mopar harness number 82207248 be recalled and fixed. An independent mechanic stated that the ignition switch needed to be replaced. They can not or will not explain what in the column is breaking the ignition switch. Next, we know the wiring down to the starter is good and we also know the power supply and wiring going into the starter relay is good on terminal 87. The contact was a mechanic and noticed the shifting cable to be loose and pushed the cable back in, and was able to take the key out of the ignition. Always verify all wires, wire colors and diagrams before applying any information found here to your 2007 Jeep Liberty. Chrysler has been contacted, twice in 2008, but stated that the problem was caused by the tire manufacturer, rather than by the wheels locking.
A full slate of options ensures that the Liberty can be configured to satisfy those seeking safety, comfort, or a workhorse. The vehicle was not repaired. During our tests, we were amazed at how much more competent the Liberty was than more expensive vehicles. Usually, this happens at around 100,000 miles but can happen well before that. To do this, your best bet would be to use a scanner or scan tool to verify that the transmission is in Park or Neutral while looking in the scan data.
The vehicle was not repaired. A new exterior color, Jeep Green Metallic, is available, and the Limited trim now gets Sirius satellite radio standard. It could be in the thousands. It is a seven-way harness, specified as mopar part number 82207248. The vehicle had not been repaired. The manufacturer was notified, but offered no assistance.
However, the good news is Dorman has got you covered. Two Jeep shops told me this is a common problem, but I haven't seen a recall. The positive cable that runs under the engine rubbed under the engine until it shorted on the grounded engine block shorting out the electrical system. This is a dangerous situation and may result in an accident signal lamps not working, hvac defogger not working or possible airbag non-deployment in a crash possible injury or fatality. The Liberty also has a surprisingly good ride, as it proved to be enjoyable for around town driving, back-road hustle, and even highway trips. As I coasted into a driveway I saw heavy dark black smoke pouring from under the hood. Found that shifter and cable assembly were worn.
