Car will not start

So, I have a 16' Patriot, with 21k. Today, I went to head out, battery in fine, no crank though....also, do I have to take it to the Jeep dealer I bought from when using my warranty? Or can I go to a dealer closer to my home.

Thanks!

Any codes? How do know the battery is good and charged? What was the voltage reading? Do all the lights still work?

Different things can cause this, here's a few threads that may help:

Any Jeep dealer should be able to work with your warranty.

Ensure shift level in park/neutral and check battery cable connections. Could just be a park/neutral switch or something easier than that.

Accessories:
Mopar deluxe splash guards (front/rear)
Mopar production cross bars
E2 14" black antenna

The car was towed to the dealer yesterday morning, I had just bought it last month from a certified Jeep dealer. I only had put 200 miles on it. Thank goodness it's still under manufacturer warranty until June of this year. And also makes a grinding / airish sound whenever I have my foot on the gas pedal, I have no idea what that is! But I mentioned it to the dealer as well. Haven't heard anything back yet
