My wife had a similar problem with a 2003 Jeep Liberty. Her problem was that it stalled and she could not get it restarted unless it sat off for 30-45 minutes. It seemed like it was a problem with the alternator and battery but it had just gotten a brand new battery in it and we discovered the starter would roll over after the Jeep sat. We had it towed to the dealership and they replaced the Crank Sensor and the Timing Sensor and the Jeep now runs fine again. Side note: They charged us about $200 to fix these parts.

SOURCE: No power going to the starter (2002 jeep wrangler x 4.0 auto)

Hi Tyler.
By run position I assume you mean that you're trying to crank the engine, and that by nothing you mean that there's no sign of the starter engaging. Is this correct?
If you've checked the starter and you are absolutely sure it's getting power you have a seemingly impossible problem, because if the starter is getting the power it needs and you know it's mechanically ok there's nothing in the world that could stop it from cranking.
Are you sure you haven't missed a wire when checking the starter? If the car has an alarm with an immobilizer (also called start inhibitor) it might be activated due to a fault somewhere in the wiring. Some cars might even disable the starter if a critical engine failure is detected. If so the cars diagnostic system should report a fult code when checked. (And, needless to say, an attempt to hot-wire the starter is not recommended until you identify the problem).
I'm really curious about this problem, please notify me when you find a solution!
Good luck!

2002 Jeep Liberty 3.7 automatic wont turn the starter over. LIghts good. Battery good. Could it be the starter, cables to the starter, neutral safety switch?


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

2002 jeep liberty Turn key switch makes loud clicking noise. Light and radio will come on. Car is able to be jumped, will stay start until turn off, and will not restart


See that? Every once in a while I'm right!!! Reason is that the starter draws far more than anything else in the car. Lights and radio can easily be run by an otherwise ineffective battery, but when loaded (starter draws a bit less than 200amps), the battery will fall flat on its' face! When you jump it, the car is running off the alternator and seems to be OK, till you turn it off again.

2002 Tahoe engine will not start


Electrical problems are difficult to diagnose in person without testing ...however, it seems that you may be loosing the body ground, causing power loss to the clock and likely the computer as well. As the starter is able to turn the engine, likely there is no problem with engine grounding. While cranking, the accessory side of the ignition switch should remain "hot" otherwise you would loose the clock every time you started it up. If it's not a ground problem, I'd look at the ignition switch itself to make sure it's not dropping power to ignition system while starter is engaged. on some vehicles this can also happen at the starter relay if an ignition bypass is used to provide hotter starting spark.
