I drive a 2004 Jeep Liberty which currently has about 67,000 miles on it and is in relatively good shape. For a while now I’ve been noticing that my CEL will come on randomly while I’m driving and flash 10 times before stopping for an indeterminate time. At the time it occurs I could be doing 70 on an interstate or 35 on a city road, doesn’t seem to matter. I also don’t notice anything else with the car at the time. No jurking, no sounds, no nothing - seems to be running fine. I’ve tried taking it in to shops after I’ve seen it but they are never able to pull anything off of the error codes. I’ve now been driving with this phenomenon for over 5 years so whatever it is seems to not have been as serious as I would have expected but I do think its starting to happen more often now than it used to.
When I try and manually pull codes I get the “donE” screen with a random number that flashes super quick before disappearing. Had to use my phones slomo mode to even try and capture it. it seems to just be a number “867588”. Quick video showing what I mean:
The only other strange symptom my car has is that sometimes during a road trip, after 2+ hours of 70mph highway driving the AC will just die on me. You can hear it still running, its trying it’s best, but nothing is really coming out of the vents. No idea if it could be related to just a separate issue.
Anyone have any thoughts as to what is happening?
