2007 Jeep Compass scraping noise when starting

My wife's 2007 Jeep Compass 114000 miles, makes this weird scraping/grinding noise when starting and will not turn over. The dash would dim when starting and was getting progressively worse. No MIL, the car was driven today and was just its normal starting issue. I plan on towing to the dealership but any information would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds like the starter isn't engaging the flywheel. The pinion gear or flywheel could have teeth damaged or the starter may be bad and not kicking the pinion gear out enough to engage the flywheel.

Hi ggxarmy,

Sorry to hear about this! I'd be happy to follow up with your dealership for you if needed, just PM our page with your VIN and let me know.
