2002 4wd jeep liberty v6 80k miles. When first started w/cold engine it squeels for the first 1-2 seconds and then stops. Once the engine is warm and you start it, it doesn't squeel. Thought maybe the starter but someone mentioned the steering pump; steers fine though.

Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
are you reading the meter right ?, less that 1 volt?
did you crank the engine and read,many car dont start the pump unit cranked.
it must be 12v or 11v if very cold and bettery volts sag a bit (1v) cranking. that is how you do this.
on some jeeps (i dont do liberty) the ASD works like this.
the 2 second rule.
TAKES 2 people to test a JEEP.
one to crank and one to measure.
the PCM allows 2 seconds. of full spark and injections
if it sees errors,. it kills every thing, spark and fuel.
the pump dies when the engine stalls or runs too slow.
so, the steering has nothing to do with that , unless the
pump seized, so drop the belt and start car.
if car will not start, that is a no start question
post it as, cranks fast but will not start. and what engine option
some have diesel.
It sounds like you need a new battery. If it's a 2002, then it's probably on it's second battery already and due for a new one. The clicking is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter with the flywheel. If the battery can't supply enough "cold cranking amps" or "power", then it makes that clicking noise.
