Jeep Liberty owners have reported 6 problems related to speed sensor (under the vehicle speed control category).
Speedometer, cruise control, brake warning lamp and abs light on, mileage counter not working, check engine light on as well, car dies or stall when slowing down even on hwy or when turning. We have replaced almost everything we can think of. Look online and hundred if not thousands of owners have exact same problems and no solution to problem. How are you supposed to have vehicle inspected if the emergency brake lights wont go off? we have replaced front and back brakes, master cylinder, wheel cylinders, speed sensors front driver and passenger and rear one. Fuel pump fuel filter have now been replaced. We have replaced more but I know we have spent well over 2 grand and nothing please help we are not the only ones having this issue.

2002 Jeep Liberty sport, speed sensor failure causes speedometer to stop working or fluctuate till it stops working. Check engine light comes on, engine will stall while driving with a result in loss of power steering, loss of power brakes and steering wheel locks up. 3rd time I've dealt with this issue in 5 years. The wiring in the harness constantly rubs and eventually becomes compromised to the elements, thus causing a short. I've managed to avoid any type of accident since I experienced this issue more than once!! Jeep has not acknowledged this is a safety issue and continually ignores the potential danger in a faulty design.
2002 Jeep Liberty speed sensor failure causes speedometer to stop working, engine to die while driving, loss of powersteering, loss of brakes, steering wheel locks up.
I was driving on the highway with cruise control on doing about 60 mph when suddenly the Jeep Liberty started jerking and the rpm needle arm and the speedometer arm started going crazy up and down. The Liberty started to slow down so I had to press on the gas pedal to maintain speed. The speedometer quit working and so did the cruise control , the auto door locks also quit working. The motor also started to die whenever I slowed down or come to a stop at a stop sign or red lights. Where its dangerous is when I am slowing down to make a turn and going in to it or half way in to it the motor dies and I lose the power steering. It takes alot of strength to complete the turn safely. I took the Liberty to a repair shop where they hooked it to a analyze machine. It said the speed sensor was bad, I had it replaced but it didn't fix anything. I took it to the dealer where I bought it, they told me it could be hundreds of dollars just to try to find out what is wrong with it. Recently I checked in the internet and saw that there are hundreds of other 2002 Jeep Liberty owners having the same problem. Speedometer quits working, motor died when you slowdown, and replacing the speed sensor doesn't fix anything. Its dangerous because you can crash when making a turn and the motor dies and you lose your steering. I know I have had some close calls. I hope you will check in to this problem. Just check in the internet and you will see alot of people have it with there 2002 Jeep Libertys. Thank you for your time.
The speedometer quit and the engine shut down. This happened while driving. The consumer has taken vehicle to the dealer multiple times for this problem. They have replaced the rear out put sensor at least ten times. The most recent time this occurred was on 8-8-05. The problem occurred at a variety of speeds. There are no other known problems with the vehicle at this time. During the last repair the dealer replaced the rear wheel speed sensor in the wiring harness.
When making a right turn steeering wheel locks and engine shuts down. Dealer notified, and said speed sensor needs replacing. Ts.
