Customer Question
Security light was on...

Security light was on because I left the key in and ignition on. Forgot it and now the car won’t start

Mechanic's Assistant: Does the light flash, blink or stay solid? Have you tried to reset the security system?

I dismantled the battery and reattached but now there is no light

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jeep?

2010 liberty

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Liberty yourself? What have you tried so far?

Key Fob, key was replaced last month as a replacement, battery dismantled and reattached, yes, I’m bymyself

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

How can I reset the system

Nothing. No lights. Every now and then , at 3 minute intervals or so, is says faintly, no fuse. Not sure if it’s only when I’m lifting the door lock or just continues

Forget it. I needed help the night it happened. Not 5 hours later. This was a waste of time. I fixed it and got free advice once the world opened for business Monday, well before you did anything of value
