Malibu LTZ 2013; Won’t Start...

*I am currently looking for some guidance... I purchased a used 2013 Malibu LTZ on 10/18/19 (two weeks ago) from a prestige dealership. My Malibu seemed to be driving fine for a few days until I started to notice a lot of flickering with the monitor and lights inside. I also started to hear movement of some sort within the dashboard. Yesterday my Malibu failed to start. After a jump it started however the monitor was black and the lights on the dash were not working. After parking my Malibu for a few hours my car wouldn’t start again. Instead it made a continuous tapping/clicking sound for about 20 mins w/ check engine light on. Steering and pedal is locked. The dealer informed me that they are not responsible for the vehicle any longer. Before taking my Malibu to a shop; is there anyone out there that might have some insight on what’s going on with my Malibu?

Have the battery checked, and see if there are any DTCs (diagnostic trouble codes). Most any auto parts store will read codes for free as well as check the battery.
