03 Liberty Starting and Shutting Down when no gas is applied ...

Asked by Oct 16, 2010 at 03:57 PM about the 2003 Jeep Liberty Limited

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 03 with 111,000 miles on it.  The battery has died twice in as many days.  When I jump it, it starts, then dies unless I keep the gas applied.  As soon as I take my foot off, the engine dies, lights come on, but radio, A/C. power windows, etc. all work.  When I took the jumper cables off, it did the same thing - started, then died.  Anyone have any ideas on what the problem is?
