I had the same terrible time with my liberty. No start lights and radio and acc work fine battery and starter fine but no crank the ignition actuator pin is broke in the steering column to verify no power going to your starter relay check fuse 28 with a voltmeter if fuse is good you should have 12v at the fuse when someone put the key to start you should get 12 volts.
If no remove the steering column cover 2 torx screws on bottom. Now check the red wire at the ignition switch hot all the time 12v now check the light blue / red wire at the ignition switch when you put the key to start position you should get 12v at the light blue /red wire if No your ignition actuator is the issue.
Remove the multi function switch on top remove the 2 torx screws and just move it to the side. Noe remove the 1 torx screw to free the ignition switch. Now remove the key cylinder put key in the RUN position and press the tab on the bottom on the cylinder and pull the lock out.
Now remove 2 torx screws on the plate on bottom. Just be careful you don't lose the spring that is inside of the plate. Now you can pull the ignition actuator and ignition switch out. Remove the harness from the ignition switch. Now just pull apart the actuator from the switch. You are going to need T-10 And T -20 security torx bits. Reverse process to install if your not sure just take some pics as you go.
