Question type: Maintenance & Repair

i have a 2008 jeep commander. my jeep started fine, no dimming lights, nor worry signs. I got back in
jeep to leave and when I turned the ignition, it had a bunch of beeps, and lights were flashing, the
traction light, oil light, drivers door open, passenger door open, the last thing it said was transmission
temp...then it sounded like a generator shutting down real slow, and it wont turn on anything,
completely dead. help

With this many things going on at once I would check your battery and the connections before anything else.

It is the battery. What you do is charge your battery a little from another car and then drive it to a place where they can check your battery. In most of the cars you have to change battery every year.
