Answer It means that there is a problem with the ABS system and you need to get it serviced.
Answer The obd2 light will come on if your computer has encountered a problem somewhere. You may want to consider a 60 dollar code reader (should work on most c…ars after 1996) from your local parts store. It will read what code number has been set, and you can go from there. Or you can get a shop to check it for you. Sometimes they'll charge, sometimes not.
Answer I own a 202 Liberty. I changed the rear brake light/ tail light myself. To change the passenger side is easy. Open the rear door and locate the two screws …that hold the fixture to the body. You should be able to see both of them easily while looking at the fixture from the rear of the car. The tool needed is a T15 torx screwdriver, at least that is what I used. This tool is needed because the head of the screw is a "star" pattern and requires the torx screwdriver bit. If you have no idea what I am talking about just search for "torx" on wikipedia and you'll learn. Anyway, back to the task. Put the torx head of the screwdriver into the top of the torx screw head on the vehicle and turn counter-clockwise (to the left) and remove the screw. Remove the other screw using the same method. To remove the entire lens fixture, you need to "pop out" two plastic barbs that are inset into two plastic connectors in the car body. This step is completely reversible, if you do it properly. To "pop out" the lens you will need a wood or plastic shim. Don't use a screwdriver you will either crack the lens or chip the paint or both. Take the thin edge of your shim and slide it between the car body and the tail light lens and push it into the now widening gap. Rock the lens fixture back and forth a bit while prying with the shim gently to the rear until the barbs holding the lens "pop out" of their holes. Change the bulb by grasping the round gray plastic part that holds the lamp (for the brake light, its the top one) and turning it about one fifth of the way around to the left (counterclockwise) the gray lamp holder should now easily come out of the fixture. Pull the lamp out of the gray holder and replace with the new lamp. Replace the lamp holder into the lens fixture. Line up the barbs on the lens with the holes in the car body and hit the rear-facing portion of the lens assembly sharply and firmly with the heel of your hand. Replace the screws and tighten snuggly. Don't overtighten, you might crack the lens fixture or strip the threads out of the car body and the lens will not stay in place. Test the new lamp by having a volunteer step on the brake while you observe the light operation. If your lamp does not glow when the brake is pressed, you may have changed the wrong lamp. To change the passenger side is a slight bit more tricky as you will need to open the back door all the way to the point of being parallel to the left side of the car (or in other words - perpendicular (rt. angle) to the rear of the vehicle). After you have the back door open properly, look through from the inside the hinge area and you will see the top of two screws (the same size as the ones on the passenger side). Place your screwdriver into the head of the screw from the inside of the door and turn the screw counter-clockwise. You may want to make sure you have a magnetic screwdriver so that you don't lose the screw into the hinge or bumper area forever and need to go buy a new screw. If you don't have a magnetic screwdriver, you might be able to reach down inside the opening between the lens fixture and the door to hold the screw with your fingers while loosening it. After you remove both screws, you will need a wood or plastice shim to "pop" out the barbs on the lens fixture that is holding the lens to the car body. After removing the lens, remove the lamp holder (for the brake light (it is the top one) by turning the gray plastic part about one fifth of the way counter-clockwise. The lamp holder should come out esily and from this point you should be able to pull the lamp from the holder. Replace with new lamp and reverse the steps. Test the lamp to make sure the repair was successful.
Answer There are 2 small screws reachable through the rear-gate hinge. These need to be removed then pull entire light housing striaght back.
Those lights are on because the computer has detected a fault and set a code. You will need to have the system checked with a scan tool.
Why are both the abs brake lights on when the brakes work the same as they did before the lights came on?
That means that the ABS computer has detected an electrical malfunction, usually a sensor problem. You need to have it checked for codes.
Each wheel has magnetic or optical sending units that tell the computer the speed that each wheel is turning at. When you apply the brakes the computer reads the relatio…nship of speed that each wheel slows down at. If even one wheel is reading a different speed of deceleration than the others, there is obviously a problem with that wheels brake system. it could be worn pads, worn rotors. stuck caliper, or the speed sensing unit could be defective, any of these conditions will trigger the computer to send a malfunction signal to the dashboard lighting up the ABS light. A simple test can determine the fault done by a code reader. or you can save money by visually inspecting the brake components. Is the light on when you start the engine? or does it come on when you apply the brakes. If always on the computer needs to be reset then see when the light comes back on. If it comes right back on, without applying the brakes, probably a bad speed sensor or worse, a defective computer. Let me know, firstname.lastname@example.org
Can ABS brakes be installed/added to the 2002 Model Year Jeep Liberty Sport 4WD. This vehicle cam without ABS and can this car be modified to be equipwd with ABS brakes …and if it can how much it will cost and wher could be done? Thank you Your costumer Doroteo Honovich
The simplest thing is to check and make sure the gate is closed.
replace rear tail light bulb
This is an easy one. Remove the two screws that hold the taillight to the body. They are located just inside the tailgate. The taillight has two tabs the fit into slots …opposite the screws, so you'll need to swing the assembly as if you're opening it like a door. The brake light is the top bulb on the back of the taillight. This is assuming that you weren't referring to the "3rd eye" brake light, which I haven't done.
Usually it means that the alternator quit working. It may also mean the vehicle is using more power than the alternator is producing, either by an electrical short or again, a… bad or worn out alternator. The old school test is to start the vehicle and remove the positive battery cable and see if the engine dies. If it does not, turn on the headlights and see if the engine stays running. If if dies the alternator may need replacement. The other possibility, and I admit, the first remains as the most possible, is the ignition switch. I have had an issue with this one myself. The ignition switch is slightly more complicated to diagnose. This may be the issue if you have other lights coming on intermittantly. I'd try the alternator first, you may also have it tested at your local auto parts store, like Autozone, to see the actual current output of the unit against the factory specs. Check all the ground wires for clean and secure connection especially those between the engine and body.
Trouble code P0442 means:Evaporative emission control system leak detected (Small leak)

Yes, My 2006 Jeep Liberty has anti-lock brakes.
That generally means a misfire has been detected. See related questions below.

What does it mean when tire light brake warning light and ABS lights comes on same time 2003 corolla?
Could be as simple as a soft tire. Check all tire pressures first.Then check the level of brake fluid in the reservoir. If it is lowor empty don't just add fluid. Have a trust…ed mechanic inspect thebrakes and don't wait. The brakes may be in need of service.
