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.

2010 Jeep Liberty Owner Comments

problem #9

  • 50,000 miles


This electrical problem showed up in the middle of driving down the road. The entire car shut down going 40 mph. Lights flashed, wipers went off, horn too, all for 10 seconds, while cruising with now power/gas. Then the car started again on its own, and kept driving. Ever since, the electrical system is screwed up. Wipers will run, but do not push fluid. Car doors will not lock/unlock with keyfob or driver's side controls. Must manually lock/unlock all doors. The tailgate cannot unlock, therefore will not open. Fan doesn┐T work, so no A/C or heat. Mechanic said the tipm must be replaced, and it is not covered by Jeep/Chrysler warranty. $1300 out of pocket! this is ridiculous, it is obviously a manufacturer defect.

Started vehicle and drove about 1/4 of a mile. The vehicle completely shut down and I had to manually steer it to the side of the road. Car would not start and power to everything was lost. Could not jump start even though battery was fully charged. Turned out to be faulty tipm. Vehicle only has 36,000 miles on it!

2010 Jeep Liberty limited 4X4 began to intermittently start and not have headlights, sometimes the lights would not come on at all, other times only the parking lights would work, and other times only the headlights would work. It was taken to both a Jeep dealer as well as a local garage and no one could find an issue. They tried replacing the switch but this did not help either. Eventually, the issue got worse and the lights have now shut off while driving at night on highways, local roads, ect. And has become unsafe to drive. Jeep still claims to never have seen anything like this however multiple complaints exists online for similar complaints, a local garage told me about the tipm issues and even upon suggesting the replacement of this part, Jeep insisted this couldn't be the issue. Now the lights are really acting up, shutting off while driving, flashing frequently, only parking lights work sometimes, sometimes only one light works, and other issues are beginning (starting randomly, horn / alarm randomly going off, ect) Jeep still refusing that this is the issue and wants to replace / repair other things first. Currently looking into replacement tipm personally, as at this point, the Jeep Liberty is unsafe to drive, especially at night.

I was driving at night and the headlights just stopped working. I was extremely concerned about my safety as I had no headlights and cars approaching me were flashing me to turn of my headlights. I couldnt pass the MA. Saftey inspection because of this. I brought the car to my mechanic and he has to replace the totally integrated control module at a cost of $900. This is absolutly a safety issue and should be recalled!

I was driving home from the convenience store in my town when the headlights just stopped working. The only lights I had were the parking lights. Car were flashing me to tell me to turn my lights on but they would not come on. I have found out by researching on line that there is a defect with the totally integrated power module. I contacted Jeep customer care and they would not offer any financial assistance. This is a very dangerous safety problem that Chrysler Jeep should recall. The total cost to repair this is $900

The vehicle was not repaired. In addition, the contact stated that while the cruise control activated, the vehicle would decrease in speed and the cruise control would shut off. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 109,000.

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • 94,300 miles


As I was leaving work, I started up my Jeep and the flashers started flashing by themselves. After about 5 minutes of turning the Jeep on and off, turning the hazard switch on and off, it finally stopped. A few weeks later, for the 5th time, my Jeep refused to start after a stop at the local pharmacy. The horn has not worked for about a year now, and right before it died, it would honk randomly whether the Jeep was parked, key in the ignition or not. It has also stalled a few times on the freeway. Dealer has recommended replacement of the tipm and says that this is a common occurrence.

Liberty 4WD

The back rear brake light has been out, I replaced the bulb and also had the wiring checked, cannot figure out what is wrong, then I noticed on several other vehicles like mine either the left or right back brake lights were also out. The other vehicles appeared to be a 2010 Jeep Liberty.
