Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Since I brought the car in 2008 at times the interior dash light and head lights flicker also the air bag light all the sudden stays on. I have intermediate no start at this time so I can't really use the car. I believe this might be an electronic issue.

Yesterday, the rear passenger window slid into door, will not come up. Can hear regulator but window is stuck in door. Vehicle was parked on a residential street, all windows were up, and about 20 minutes later the window had disappeared into the door. I called Chrysler but the VIN is not part of Chrysler's notice to owner's in 2010 regarding faulty window regulators.

My 2006 Jeep Liberty will not start or crank. The computer does not show any codes. The battery had power, the relays are fine and the starter is fine. When you are in the Jeep and try to start it, it does nothing. Its like you forgot and left it out of park and tried to start it. The Jeep does not click or even attempt to start. No one seems to know what's wrong with it. I love my Jeep and it had been well taken care of. I have had numerous issues, and recalls. I still love my little Liberty. If you could just help with a diagnosis, I would be forever grateful!

2006 Jeep Liberty clockspring malfunction. Contact with dealership yielded info that no replacement part is available, yet the car is rendered unsafe without the replacement of malfunctioning part. Owners have to decide whether to drive unsafely or park it until the part is available, which most people cannot afford to do. This is a widespread problem that Chrysler is not addressing.

ABS system goes out which in turn makes the cruise control go out. Then when you use the vehicle again the ABS is on so is the cruise control but the brakes don't work well and grab. Then when you are using the lights at night it dims for no reason inside and out. Still waiting on the fix for the rear end fuel tank issue

In Nov 2014 as I was delivering mail in my RHD Jeep Liberty 06, my heat was on and my blower fan "blew up", blowing black smoke into the Jeep from the vents and a burning smell came from the dash board. I took the Jeep to my local garage in which time they tore the dash apart and found it had in fact "blew up". it now only runs on one speed (high). During the next few months (winter) every time I run my heater with the fan or the defrost my dash board goes haywire. Meaning gauges shut down, all alert lights go on and/or flash and all beeps, buzzers and noises sound. It continues until I turn the heat/defrost off. I took it back to the garage on numerous occasions in which they ran the scanner with 7 codes coming up. After a few hours of sitting it would just reset itself and codes would disappear. Everytime it rains now the dash board does the same thing. I have had 2 garages and several different mechanics look at it and can't figure out the problem. On April 25 I called Chrysler to get my Jeep in for the N46 recall and asked about the electrical issue and explained the situation. I told her it was a known problem in the Jeep Liberty. Her response to me was "in the last 25 yrs I've worked here, I have never heard of this problem." So I said I'd like it looked at while its there for the recall issue. Her response again was " you need to take it back to the garage that looked at it the first time, and you do know that we automatically charge $98 an hour for diagnostic checks." I was looking over my paper sent in the mail to me about the N46 recall today and found at the bottom of the paper it reads............"ask your dealer about the following notification. Our records indicate that your vehicle also requires repair for notification G03" I google searched Jeep Liberty 06 recall G03 and found.........this is a blower fan issue. And Chrysler won't even look at it.
