Question about Jeep Liberty
No year, no joy, sorry !@!!!
the car has 2 front tires.
with open axles, (you have the LSD option)
one tire dies spin, the loosest tire spins.)
but if you hold the foot brake lightly , you get poor mans LSD.
my 08 wrangler JK, it has no LSD but does have software that does the brake trick automatically. so not posting the year, makes answers
read the operators guide.
find out what options are on your car.
read the FSM for how yours works (it has the 4wd theory in mine)
the 2008 (07 and newer?) uses the ABS sensors to detect wheel spin
in 4wd, then the ABS modulates the spinning wheels to force
the spider gears to send torque to the TRACTION side.
i call this Virtual LSD and is free. in both cases. with no LSD hardware.
LSD is an axle locking device (hardware clutches) and
means limited slip differential.
My car could have had optional electric lock axles. but did not.

SOURCE: front tires wont pull in 4wd
You have an actuator on the front axle, check for power or pull out and check for damage. You can also check for proper working while out ,make sure ground is good.

Sounds like your front actuator in the axle is not working..What you can do for now instead of buying a new one is remove the front actuator.It is a threaded in unit.Take a crescent wrench and remove it.Next find a big nut or bolt to put inside of it.Once you have it off you can jack the front end up put your finger inside of the hole where actuator goes.Rotate the front tires back and forth and till you can push the tab inside in.That will lock the front end .And the reason your putting the bolt or nut in there is to take up the space the actuator would normally would Push in..Remember your front axle is always going to be lock and you will still be able to unlock it with the push button.After you put the bolt in the hole screw the actuator back in.This will hold the bolt and keep your axle locked.........

sounds like your locking hubs are not locking up they are vacume operaited so you need to find out why. the hubs could be bad i would say the right side as the axle was turning but the wheel was not but you may not have vacume to eather side
