problem #2

Nov 162006

Liberty 4WD 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 50,000 miles
: the contact stated while driving 35 mph on a city street, the engine stalled, and all four doors locked and unlocked without warning. Afterwards, the engine restarted. The vehicle was inspected by an independent repair shop who determined the wheel and speed sensor of the brakes needed to be replaced. Afterward, the problems persisted. The vehicle was taken to a dealer for further inspection who determined there was a rainwater leak along the driver side door and the rear hatch that corroded the electrical wiring harness. The wiring harness was replaced as well as a new rear hatch seal to prevent further leaking. The manufacturer was alerted.
