The problem is in the starting system circuit. The ignition switch applies a ground to the starter relay (located under the hood near the battery in the fuse/relay box), it, it turn, applies power to the starter solenoid which pushes the starter bendix gear into the ring gear on the engine flywheel. When the bendix gear is fully inserted into the ring gear, the solenoid also makes contact with the battery cable connection (internally in the starter solenoid) and applies battery power to the starter motor, which, in turn cranks the engine. A non-crank condition can be caused by a malfunction in any of these components in the starter system, not to mention a bad ground circuit between the engine and the battery/chassis. Since you didn't mention whether or not there was any 'click' when the ignition switch is turned to the 'start' position, I'd look at that circuit first.

2002 jeep liberty sport will not start. It won,t even turn over. drove it yesterday no problems. after 1 hour tried to start didn,t work Can you help?


Have you tried to jump started ? If your jeep starts when giving it a jump, you may have a bad battery. Check fuses for fuel and ignition systems. If your battery is bad, could be because the alternator is not charging it. Might want to have this component tested.

My car won't turn on it was working fine last


Just because you charged the battery it doesn't mean it is any good. Modern sealed batteries fail; just as you described, fine one moment and then nothing, they go open internally.
