1996 tj wont start

Hi all, only owned the jeep for about a month as we live near the beach and hills etc in lovely adelaide. I went to start the car this morning and it would not, all the lights, radio etc came on but the engine would not turn, not even a clicking noise. I have removed the battery and I am charging over night, also removed starter motor and checked it hadn't siezed, re-fitted. Any ideas why if the battery charge does not work?? Thanks for your time.

It is possible for a battery to have enough juice to power a vehicle's electrical system, but not enough cranking amps to start the engine. If you have a way to get the battery to an auto parts store they can check the condition of the battery for you. That would be the first step. If your battery is still good, it could be a bad starter solinoid.
