Vehicle not starting within a day of leaving idle

Mine is a 2018 Jeep Compass petrol automatic and it was completely good on Friday night and then it is not starting on a Sunday noon ... It says service power steering and not powering on ... I also see some flickering in the meters ... could this be a battery issue and I am wondering if battery won’t even last for more then a year ... any suggestions??

Welcome to the site!

Maybe a loose cable?

Yours is new enough you're probably still under warranty. Let your dealer handle it.

I hope your problem is fixed quick and easy.
