Lisa, turnover means ZERO.
as the starter motor turns and so will the engine cranks shaft.
what matters 1st is the engine crank shaft.
if it spins, we say engine cranks perfectly and fast. robustly)
if that happens we next check fuses, and then for spark.
my guess is engine cranks ok, (you said have power, kinda implies that)
so check fuses yet, (we test them)
if fuse are good,
you next key on, the CEL lamp glows, telling you the EFI system
is read (fuel and spark computers)
got that?
if car is optted with IMMobilizer. (it is i think) the lamp for the IMMO
must to out for the car to start. if not , the IMMO will never let it start
if the IMMO lamp SKIM. its called, in your operators guide (lost)?
if that lamp out, then the key is good. (encoded key it is)
and the enigne will start or run only for 3 seconds.

ill stop here. and see if you have no starts at all, or just 2-3 seconds.

the PCM (EFI brain) will drop out the ASD relay in 3 seconds, for 8 reasons, all are told to you if you SCAN the pcm.
ill bet you dont have a scan tool so ill stop here

EFI means electronic fuel injection.

If your battery is charged up and you know its not the starter check all the battery cable connections. Check and see if the ends where they fasten on the battery is not corroded and must be tight. dirty and loose cables will not let the power from your battery to the starter. Do the same for the cables on the starter and also the ground. My cables on my Le saber looked ok but I could not even boost from another car. We replaced the both cables and Bingo away we go.
If that's not the problem check the switch as it might be burnt out as well but Its cheaper to check the cables first.

have same problem, ratan9 solution is pretty junk and I dont know why waste time posting it. After talking to local shop, to "test" the neutral safety switch, try to start in neutral, try to move shifter "farther" into park and turn key, listen to any clicks possible. If moving to neutral starts it you've got a bad switch. All the searching i've done it's either the safety switch, the ignition switch or a short in the harness somewhere

Ignition relay or fuse could be the problem. When you turn the key to start do you hear a fuel pump kicking on and or do you have spark when you hot wire the starter (I know it's hard to check while trying to start it)? You can email me back and I might be able to pinpoint it more.

Hi my 2006 Jeep Liberty won't start or turn over all keep hearing is this click sound when I turn the ignition , Plus I just replaced the battery .

Probably a starter. It sounds like the starter solenoid is working, but the starter motor is not energizing.

You could try this simple trick, but Im about 85% sure you have a bad starter.

Have a buddy help you push the vehicle in neutral for a short distance. When you get it moving at a walking pace, put the transmission in Drive, and let the vehicle come to a stop. You may hear a little clicking, but thats OK, it wont hurt anything. Put the transmission back in Park and try to start the engine again. Sometimes the starter gear gets stuck on the flywheel and it wont engage when you try to start the engine. This trick may move the flywheel a little so the starter can engage.

My 2005 jeep liberty will not start. Starter is good. What could be the probable cause?

Check the battery for bad connections..take off the cables and clean both the battery posts and the cable connectors and then try...if no start, then see if you can check the battery voltage with a stand still(engine not running) the battery should read 12.5 volts...if battery is ok, then there is the possibility that the starter solenoid, the starter relay, or (in rare cases) the ignition switch is bad

Battry good will not turnover

to check for sure try the following.
1 ensure the vehicle is in N gear position.

switch on headlight and then turn the key. if the lights dim it means that the starter has tried to start and the power of the battery is low thus the lights dim or got out. e.g. the battery is weak and needs charge or replacment.

if ligths stay lit then you most likely have a problem with your starter motor or starter circuit. a tap of the starter motor with a rubber mallet or a piece of 2x4 may dislodge and allow to start. if this is the case you may need a new starter motor,

i hope this was useful

Ignition turns but no start

it is an issue in the steering column. I am getting my 2005 back today, finally. 2 mechanics and they said they have never seen this issue before!!
The steering wheel has to be pulled off and the part replaced. It is cutting all power to the ignition switch. It is not the starter or the Alternator... it is in the steering column. It should be about 200.00 to fix.
