No bus- Car won't turn over

Currently have a 2012 Jeep Patriot with about 18k miles on it. Owned since it only had 17 miles only it.

Owned it for a year in California and moved to Minnesota this summer. Never had a problem in any way with the pat.

Last night was the second night in a row, temperatures dipped below zero. Yesterday the car had started just fine. Today when I got to my car, the car started and I let it run before putting it into gear and about 30 seconds in the car died and "no buS" flashed across my gauge. Radio still worked but automatic locks/fan/window/seat warmers nothing would turn on. Let it sit for about five hours and tried it again, car attempted to start but wouldn't with "no bus" flashing again, but this time automatic locks, seat warmers, fan all would turn on.

Disconnected the battery and let it sit for about 25 minutes. Reconnected the battery, again engine wouldn't start with a "no buS" warning. This time the lights behind my window and lock buttons repeatedly flashed on and off with a clicking.

Trying to avoid being towed to a shop at all costs. Thoughts about what is going on/how to fix?

You can can check the connections on the TIPM but it sounds like it may be fried.

The no bus means there's no information coming from the computer.

i assume you are still under warranty, this is something to take it to the dealer for sure.
