Thanks those are things I considered. What is so bizarre is it started 5 times withing ten minutes fine. Then nothing? Will get battery checked first thing, if the amps are teetering on accepatble I assume the relay wont open. Thanks again. Once it started i had no power issues and drove around returning home.

Danno38--My 2005 Jeep Liberty has been doing the exact same thing that you describe. I've found no one else online that has the same issue. What did you end up finding out was wrong with it?

SOUNDS LIKE RASMATAZ JUST ABOUT COVERED ALL OF THE BASES
THE ONLY THING THAT WAS NOT MENTIONED WAS THE POSSIBILITY OF BEING INTERMITTENT.
NO ONE MENTIONED ACTUAL STARTER REMOVAL AND "FORMAL TESTING" AT MANY-A POPULAR AUTO PARTS STORE....USUALLY DONE FOR FREE!
SAME GOES FOR OTHER "EXPENDABLE/ INEXPENSIVE" PARTS THAT HAVE "SLAVED FOR YOU" FOR YEARS! (LIKE THE STARTER RELAY, EVEN THE STARTER'S BRUSHES) THESE PARTS MAY HIT 50 TIMES SEEMING JUST FINE, IN REALITY THE CONTACTS MAY BARELY BE COMPLETING THE CIRCUIT THOSE 50 TIMES....TRY 51 IN THE MIDDLE OF NO WHERE, MAY LEAVE YOU STRANDED!
THINGS LIKE THE ABOVE, AND EVEN MY THERMOSTAT, I REPLACE EVERY 2-5 YEARS....NEED IT OR NOT!
BEFORE YOU DO ANYTHING $$$ WISE, SEE IF YOU DO HAVE VOLTAGE REACHING WHERE IT SHOULD, WHEN THE KEY IS TURNED TO "ON" AND "START"
AS FAR AS CONNECTIONS---THIS IS HOW I GENERALLY SEE THEM--"NOT APPROACHED!".....SEE MY NOVEL LIKE CONTRIBUTION TO THIS POST!
PLEASE RETURN WITH A SMILE AND GOOD TIDINGS!
