In this video I look at a Jeep Liberty that was dragged in with a no crank condition. It came from a local shop and they had made the call on the ignition switch. Let's have a quick look before slamming any parts on it. -Enjoy!

    Hello everyone. I need your help very badly.. my Liberty 2012 stoped while driving and it won’t start… changed battery, alternator, starter… nothing. The code was B212C and mechanic said need to change TIPM fuse box. Change it and still nothing. We have no idea what is the problem. It make some cranking noise in the fuse box when starting it but not doing anything else after. Please any suggestions???? Thank you. 🙏🙏

    This is what I did to get My 02 to start jumping the relay.
    You have to back feed the PCM with 12vdc at the relay socket with the key in the run position ,

    The PCM needs to see a Start signal from the ignition switch.

    Jump the relay socket to get the starter motor turning and at the same time I use a power probe to send power back down the relay coil terminal that comes from the Ignition Switch, Starts every time..

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michael Oliveira says:

    Awesome video…just diagnosed exactly the same issue. Thanks 😊

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mrxkyle22x says:

    Hey Eric I have the same issue but I’m not sure what the part is called. Do you by chance know or a part number?
    Thanks

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Don says:

    great video. thanks you. what was the part number?

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Guy Morton says:

    Handy video as my KJ has just done the same thing. Wife got into trouble driving home. I jumped in to turn key & dashboard lights start flashing & blinking & no start. So, looks like new part needed. Though not stripped out yet.

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bj Emrick says:

    What is the exact name of the part u replaced?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars tibonomme says:

    So … what was the faulty part ?
    Need to Know for someone who has a non starting jeeep liberty 2010 for 2 montes

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thriftyali save says:

    Hey Eric 2012 lefty is just clicking, I put a new battery in it, a shop put a new fuel pump in it, is a bad starter??

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars thriftyali save says:

    Hey Eric great video, it's nice to have a good helper. I have a friends 2012 jeep liberty that has had a mechanic shop put 3 fuel pumps in, they killed her battery left her with a 500 dollar bill and the car just clicks when you try to start. I just replaced the battery with a new one. Everything turns on ok. So do u think it's the starter. Do I do a by pass from the start in the fuse box? Please let me know thx

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matt Haught says:

    Had this exact problem in my 2003 Jeep Liberty – I was able to get it home by bypassing the starter relay but only right after the key was in run position. The part was about $60 and every parts store had it in stock. Thanks this saved me.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chip Johnson says:

    No offense to you, but this was the most infuriating video to watch in a while. 36 minutes long and uncut ( for the most part ) and I honestly don't think you stopped talking the entire time. Some of it not even relevant. It's like you couldn't stand no sound, so you talked to yourself the entire time, but recorded it and posted it on YouTube. This could've been 10 minutes long; 15 tops.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JeffreyJames Halvorson says:

    I was able to jump the starter relay and make mine turn over, but would not run so I knew it was not the starter

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Bismarck San Diego says:

    Mister O … Have you ever popped an air bag ?

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Dileo says:

    that was great i think this is my problem…very informative video

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rocky Nix says:

    Now that we got it hot wired … Let's go to Walt Disney world and Rob it with the DeWalt .

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rick Whelpley says:

    I'd like to see you do a video on the effect of aftermarket parts for Jeep/Dodge, when it comes time for the computer to acknowledge the new part. The 08 Liberty comes to mind. Standard Products makes the cheap EGR but now I'm wondering is the Mopar EGR the answer or is a dealer flashing…either way I know you like to talk OEM parts and was wondering what your thoughts were

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Michel Comiot says:

    Yesterday this came up on my feed – watched with interest, never encountered this problem before – had Jeeps for 30 years. This morning my Liberty (Cherokee here in UK) would not start, or crank – opened it up to find it was exactly the same piece broken as this video – seriously spooked !

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mitch Hawkins says:

    👍

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars craftchest says:

    Thanks! Came in clutch.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars fefe fefe says:

    I showed my husband this video and I'm glad i did…because my car is now working. Thanks for taking the time to post for those willing to learn… Greatly appreciated!!!!

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars roe151 says:

    Your video was on point! I followed your instructions to the T and I was surprised to see the piece of metal drop to the floor just like in your video. That was nice because I knew right away what the problem was. Thank you, you saved me a bunch of money. The part cost me a hundred dollars and about an hours time. If anyone has this problem, first make sure your battery is good, test your starter and then this video.

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Joe Perez says:

    My 2005 Liberty Renegade don`t start too, Is not the battery or the starter. I don`t know if is for the same reason but, If I don`t have the tools and skill to do that, what is the best place to go and check and fix something like that?. Thanks for the info.

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Cool says:

    THANK YOU!! I have the same vehicle (just purchased it), with the exact same problem. I was prepared to go ahead and try to change the neutral safety switch which is up inside the transmission and a horrible job. But thanks to your video I was able to diagnose the problem (by finding no power to the blue and pink wire). My problem is actually the cylinder not turning all the way to start but it makes no difference, without your video I would have been completely lost. I can now drive the vehicle, starting it with a screwdriver, until I get a new key and lock cylinder set. So thank you so much your videos are not only informative, they are highly entertaining as well. As soon as I get a few extra bucks I will definitely order a hat. So again thank you.

    What was the name of the part you had to replace

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Barton says:
