Jeep Liberty Starter Motor Needs Replaced

Hi! good night, this day i will created an article about Jeep Liberty Starter Motor Needs Replaced

Diagnosing a starting problem in a 2004 Jeep Liberty is not difficult, keep reading because here you will learn how to tell if the jeep liberty starter motor needs to be replaced. The fuse and relay for the starter are located on the driver’s side fender in the electrical component box.

Under the cover of the box is a diagram showing the type and location of the fuse and relay for the starter. The starter is located on the driver’s side of the engine midway between the oil pan and the intake manifold bolted to the bell housing.

How to tell if the starter on the Jeep Liberty needs to be replaced:

  1. Lift the cover and check that the connections of the battery terminals are not cracked, loose or corroded. If any of these conditions exist, correct them and retest the starter.
  1. Check battery cable to starter solenoid. This is the big red battery that powers the top post of the starter solenoid on top of the starter. Grab the wire and see if it’s tight on the solenoid post. Check the cable for visible corrosion. Replace the cable if it exists.
  1. Check if the battery is charged and if there are defective cells with the voltmeter. Put the meter on the 20 volt scale, you should put the black cable on the negative terminal of the battery and the red cable should go on the positive. A fully charged battery will show 12.5 to 12.7 volts. Have a helper try to start the engine while you watch the voltmeter. If the voltage drops below 10.5 volts during cranking, the battery has a bad cell and must be replaced. If the battery is less than 12.5 before attempting to start the engine, the battery is discharged and should be charged to thoroughly check. The alternator may be faulty and not charging properly. When the battery is charged, start the engine and watch the voltmeter. A good alternator will show 13.5 to 14.5 volts. If the voltage is lower, the alternator is faulty. If the alternator is working properly and the battery has run down, check for a siphon or short in the wiring.
  1. Check the voltage at the starter solenoid.. Connect the black lead to a good ground, and use the red lead to test the large positive lead on the starter. If battery voltage is present, the cable is good. If there is less voltage than the battery, replace the cable.
  1. Check the small wire of the solenoid, which is the driving power of the ignition lock. Remove this cable and insert the probe into the small cable connector. Have a helper turn the key to the “start” position. Power should be displayed when the key is in the “home” position only. If there is current and the starter does not work, change the starter. If there is no current, check the fuse and relay. If they are good, the ignition switch is bad.
  1. Check that the starter is not dragging or having difficulty turning the engine. Replace the starter if it shows this type of action. If the starter clicks too many times before starting or just clicks without activating the motor, you may want to replace the starter. If the starter turns and won’t start the engine, plus if the Bendix is ​​bad a new starter is the answer.

There is also the case where your Jeep Liberty also does not start, has flashing lights, and the windshield wipers work by themselves and spray water. In the following video, the car did not have fault codes in the PCM and there was also a loss of communication with the ABS system and inconveniences or problems with the AIRBAG system.
