No start and Dash lit up like a christmas tree

Jeep has been running without a problem. Parked to pickup the kids from school, 30 minutes later, get in and when I turned the key, every light was blinking, at different times not together, no start and there was a clicking.
Probably original battery
I got my windows up, and had to walk the kids home and left it parked, had to leave for work, I'm at work now and will be home in the morning to take them back to school.
Is this the starter?

My guess is the battery is bad. Call AAA.

If you decide to test the battery on your own make sure to do a Load test. Testing the surface charge on the battery will not give you any answers.

I second the battery. At 5yrs old it's due. Buy a replacement H7 or 94R battery. Walmart has a good price on them as does Costco. The parts stores can be a little pricey on this battery

if you have a volt meter, do a you tube search on "testing car battery" and you can test it yourself. battery should be at 12.8 volts and 13.5 when the car is running.

K. Jumped it, drove some highway and took it home. Tested with a meter, parked, the battery tested at 12.8 and running around 14.4.
I will wait an hour or so and test it again.
It seems, if it were just the battery, the dash wouldn't go bonkers like that.
I'm gonna try and search the forum a little more on this.

Best to stop by a shop or Advance and get that battery load tested.
