Default 2000 jeep Cherokee will not crank or start

I drove it home this morning and parked it. Later on I come out to go somewhere, and when I went to start it it wouldn’t crank. At first I thought it was the (NSS) but it wasn’t. I have power to my lights just not my dash, window/door locks. So being the quickest option I tried to jump it and I have nothing. My gas gauge was acting up last night could it be the crank position sensor? It’s my daily driver and I need it running asap! Help!!

The 1st thing is to check battery cables both ends of them and then the power and ground wires and starter relay . you can try to jump the starter at the starter and see what happens .

If you have good battery, and good connections try to tap on the starter with a hammer.

I checked the fuses last night and they looked fine, but this picture helps a bit more than what I was looking at last night

You should check the fuses with a meter. Sometimes they look good but are blown.
