2005 jeep liberty will not start on occasion battery and alt have been checked they are good what might the probeem be

When you say it won't start do you mean nothing happens when turning the key car won't turn over if so then more than likely your starter is getting bad and when the starter quits spinning it probably stops on a bad spot on the brushes and looses it's connection if that's the case next time vet someone to turn the key while you take a hammer and hit the starter right on the side of the body don't hit the solonoid but if it starts right up then it's the starter going bad replace it.

New lock cylinder still won't start it.

I'd have to check wiring circuits to your starter motor. There are usually two hot circuits at the starter, one is battery voltage, hot all the time. The other circuit usually goes hot with key in the crank position. use a test light to check for voltage. Any testing at the starter make sure tranny is in park or neutral and the parking brake is set.

There could be other issues, security system-- neutral or clutch switch depending on your tranny--wiring circuit problem, somewhere? Maybe a starter issue? The engine isn't froze-up, is it?

I have a 87 Pontiac firebird. I got it from a friend and drove it home. I drove it a round town a little then parked it by my house. I went to start it and nothing happened, i thought the battery was dead...

Probably not a fuse. When turning the key to on, does it give indication of power in and power out of the ignition switch-do the warning lights and gauges on the dash turn on?
If the key switch is sending power, next thing to check is the starter motor. You could take it off and have it tested, it and the starter solenoid mounted on the starter, or you could do some quick electrical testing yourself, if you have a test light or multi-meter.

If you pull off the small purple wire to the starter solenoid on the starter, you should check if the wire has power when the key is held in crank position. If it does have power, the starter or solenoid is faulty. If no power on the purple wire in start, then power is lost between the key switch and the solenoid. This part of the start circuit includes the neutral safety switch on the transmission (or the clutch switch if manual transmission), and a starter relay somewhere under the hood. Check the neutral safety switch for continuity in park or neutral. The start wire out of the ignition switch goes to this safety switch, and power is passed on to the starter if gear is in park or neutral.
Not likely the starter relay is bad, but you may need to find and check it, if all else fails.

2000 dodge caravan will start and most of the time will and nothing happens at all when i turn the key . i try 3 or 4 times an it will start this happens about once a week

You need to clean your battery connections & the starter cable connections. If this doesn't solve the problem, you may have to change the starter or the red starter cable. Good luck!

My 1992 Buick Park Ave won't start part of the time. It isn't the starter, or the battery or cables to it, or the ignition. The engine purrs once it starts and it isn't an engine problem. It is just like...

Yeah it could be the igntion switch, specially if you don't even hear a relay clicking. This could also be caused by a loose connection aroun the battery area, check all the connection around the main fuse under the hood, and around the battery area. Next time it happens turn the key to on position and check voltage to a main fuse. If the 12 volt is missing then the problem is around there somewhere.

Turn key, nothing happens

It could be the park/neutral switch, next time it doesn't start try wiggling the shifter in park while turning the key, or shift to neutral and see if that will work. if that doesn't change the problem I would replace the ignition switch.

I turn my key and it does nothing almost like a dead battery

Try running the gear selector through all the gears then back into park. If the same thing happens then set your emergency brake, place the gear selector in neutral, while pressing on the brake pedal try to start it. If this works you may have to replace the switch that senses when it is in park. Good Luck
