Tipm ? Do I have one

Hi. I just bought a 2006 jeep liberty sport 3.7l from a friend of a friend .
The guy I bought it from said the motor was locked up. $500, I bought it anyways. I get it home and started going over the engine to see if it really was locked up. I turned the engine over buy the crank pulley bolt. It was turning over but had to use a little more force than usual.
I took the spark plugs out and it cranked easier. I put the plugs back in and tried to start the jeep.
I turned the key and got a half spin of the motor then a click. The gas gauge went from half to empty. The abs light came on and the check engine lite came on. Me being me, I turned the key again and the engine fired right up. Runs smooth. I let it idle for about 3 minutes then she died. Tried to start again but got the half spin then a click.
I pulled the code with my scanner and got u1411...
What is that ?
I let the jeep set for about a hour. Went back and started the jeep up again. It ran for a good 5 minutes then stalled. Tried to start it again but wouldn't start.
What seems to be the problem ?
Thanks

Looks like you have two posts going for the same issue. Have you had the battery tested? Are the terminals spotlessly clean and original style, not those cheapo replacement ends? All grounds installed?

Have you had the battery load tested and what is the voltage reading when running too.

Have not had the battery load tested.
I had my battery charger hooked up to the battery with the engine start selection. I don't know if that would make a difference, but still had the code u1411.
