Help, 2009 compass wont start :(

Hello im new to the forums but what brought me here is a big issue for me.
Im not the most mechanicaly inclined but i can do repairs myself and this issue ive been having i cant seem to fix:

Last friday the car was working fine all day, let it sit for an hour or two and then went to start but nothing happened.
All lights are on in the car, gauges are reading fine, front headlights have no dimming, radio stations are saved, eveyrthing works great except it wont turn over. Theres no clicking sounds, you can hear the fuel pump engage too.
Ive had the battery tested and shes good to go.
All the fuses in the box in the engine bay are good.

We got it working last friday by messing around with the fuse area taking each one out and back in, and by some miracle it turned over just fine. but now tuesday morning theres nothing doing the same thing.

Ive tried to do the same process we did earlier but it did nothing.

2009 Jeep Compass North edition 4x4.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide, id like to avoid the shops ( no warranty) as its 139.00 just to look at it out here in Calgary.

Check the voltage at the starter to make sure you are getting good voltage to there.

i dont have access to any tools anymore for voltage.

I called the dealership again and a tech mentioned it sounds like the security is locking me out when trying to start it, i only have 1 key so i cant try another.
The other day when we got it working, we did take out all the fuses and he did some thing with reseting in the drivers seat. does this sound like it could be it?

I have an update:

I got it working, for now, I only took out the fuses with 10 on them, i dont have my owners manual or anything to find out which fuse it is for but one of them did it and the jeep started again.

I hope someone knows what this could be.

At least i know how to get it started for now.

Maybe the key security system?

When ours did that it was a faulty TIPM which is located below or beside the fuse box. Ours would only start if my 30 amp battery charger was on it. The dealer thought I was crazy until it happened to him. $800 later and it was cranking again. This happened on our 2009 Pat. Sounds like yours is corrosion or something is loose.
