Won't start but battery is good?

Help, my '12 JK will not start. I tried jumping it off but it doesn't seem to be the battery. It doesn't even try to turn over. When I connect the jumper cables, the electronic throttle light comes on for a few seconds then goes off but the engine light comes on and stays. Jeep was running fine with no issues or warning lights. Any thoughts?

Still could be the Battery with a shorted cell. Instead of jumping disconnect cables from battery and try other battery. Just a thought.

Took it to dealer Monday and they checked everything out...turned out to be bad battery. Just surprising considering I've only had it about year and half and it's got less than 25k miles. Glad that's all it was. They replaced it under warranty.
