How many miles? If the battery has juice, the key/starter turns, and the solenoid is good, it may be bad ignition coils or spark plugs. First, try disconnecting and reconnecting all the harnesses from the coils, and see if it starts. Next, if you have a battery charger, hook it up to your battery and let it charge up for at least 30 minutes, and try starting again. If those don't work, check for battery acid build up on your battery contact points and rust on your ground wires, brush off any dirt or acid with a wire brush, and replace rusted ground wires. If those don't work, its time to look at the ignition coils and spark plugs. Take your coils out and look at the bottoms: any of them look really orange and white? That coil is dead or about to be dead, and needs to be replaced. While the coil is off, check the spark plug under it: does it look really black on top? Anything look cracked or broken? Replace it. My 2011 Liberty wouldn't start because of 2 bad ignition coils, and when I replaced them (after first trying the preceding steps, of course), it started right up. Hope this helps! -- Frank
