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.

Do you own or have access to a voltmeter? If so when car is running you should have a range of 12.6 volts to 14.8 at the battery cables.
If not jump start car and run it to local Autozone, Advance, etc parts store and the offer free testing on the car.

Also, if you've been driving for last two weeks on bad alternator, you might have damaged new battery.

If you have a Battery charger, disconnect the Neg cable of the battery from the SUV and charge the battery overnight. When you get the SUV running, take it to Autozone or Oreillys for a free scan. Also ask them to do a Starter draw test and to analyze your charging system and Battery.

The Ford antitheft systems are really sensitive to low power. While your vehicle has a 12 Volt system, a fully charged battery will have 13.2 to 13.4 Volts in it. A drop of 10% in battery performance will drop the charge to 12 Volts or less. This is enough to make the anti-theft lock out the Starter.

I have seen Charging systems automatically turn off once a jumper cable is removed. You can see it on the dash gauges where the Alternator is working and remove the jumper and after several minutes a perfectly good Alternator stops working while you are driving. Then install a battery with a 13.2 Volt charge and everything starts working perfectly from then on.

I mention this because you may have felt the Battery was charging after the jump and really it was not. You have to watch the Volt meter in your dash while you drive, there will be no warning lights.

I hope I have been helpful with my solution and that you will get a scan on your SUV.
