Jeep won't start

I have a 2007 Wrangler. I went to start it yesterday and all I got was a bunch of clicks. It has power as the dash light up, radio came on and my headlights work. When I hit the door look it actually try's to start even with out the key. Dash lights up. I had it towed to my Jeep dealer but they are closed until tomorrow. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I'm guessing it's a starter based off the "clicks" but then you said it tries to start by hitting the lock button as well?? Haven't heard of that, definitely an electrical issue.

If it's an automatic trans I'm guessing your shift interlock switch either broke or came out of it's little plastic mount.
