2003 Jeep Liberty

Asked by Oct 08, 2016 at 01:02 PM

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2003 Jeep Liberty won't start. At first we
assumed it was the battery. It would start with
jump or battery charger. Went for replacement but
battery tested "good/above standard". Assuming
then it was the alternator. That was replaced. Ran
good for 1 day. Went to grocery store..started fine.
Left grocery store..wont start. Got jumped and as
soon as cables removed Jeep stalled.  Let it
charge from jumper truck a few minutes and was
able to get started & get home. As soon as I shirt
N2 park it stalled. Now it will not start on its own.
Working Mom and this Jeep gets my lil girl to
school and me to work every day!!! PLEASE HELP!
Any info is greatly appreciated.

First check for a blown alternator fuse if that is good alternator maybe bad even though it's new. Have alternator tested should be charging at 14 volts.

The charging system on this Jeep is computer controlled so it is possible that the computer is not turning the charging system on, but a Tech is going to have to check this out. Take it to a shop of your choice most shops can now test this system.
