door locks became inoperable from door panels and key fob. power locks could no longer be used from either. was told it was an issue with the tipm, would have to be fixed with dealership. in reading complaints here, as well as many forums online it seems to be a very common issue. recommend a recall. sounds as though this is not an isolated incident and should be addressed. *tr

power door locks inoperable. first happened a week or so after purchasing used. went out on a friday night but worked again before i could get into shop on monday. worked fine for two months until yesterday when it happened again. cannot lock or unlock via key fob or door button. must unlock driver door with key and manually lift door knob on all other locks. rear door locks are extremely difficult to reach to unlock from the front seat as the locks are towards the rear of the door. hatch is completely un-accessible as there is no way to unlock it. locks do not lock when you drive and reach the appropriate speed and do not unlock when the car is put back into park. when key fob is used the lights blink and the horn sounds but the lock/unlock functions do not work. brief internet search has shown others with this a problem with both the dodge nitro and jeep liberty. currently in the shop being looked at as an electrical issue. *tr
