Question about 2006 Jeep Liberty
If it will start with a boost, have your battery load tested when fully charged, that will be a good indication.

To solve the problem you have to check them one by one.
First with a digital multimeter check the voltage between (+) and (-) terminals of the battery. If the reading is 12.64 volts the battery is 100% charged, and that means it is excellent. If the reading is 12.44 the battery is 50% charged that means acceptable. If it is bellow 12.4 volts, then recharge the battery, or replace with a good one.
After installing a good battery try to start the car with ignition key in ON and then Start position.
If it doesn't start then you have to troubleshoot the starter system.
Try to start the car and listen for a clinking metal sound from the front under your car. You need another person to help you. If yes, then the problem is at the starter and replace the starter with a rebuild one.
If you do not hear the noise, lift up the front of your car, on oil change ramps, or jack stands. Use a 8 feet long wire. Connect one terminal at (+) connector of the battery. While turning the key in ON and start position, the helper will connect the wire at starter solenoid contact ( where the thin wire is bolted up). If the car starts up the starter is O.K and the problem might be the starter relay or ignition key. Good Luck.
