Start Button Malfunction On 2014 GC Summit

Over the last couple of weeks my wife has been having trouble with start button. All the lights come on but car won't start. After 3-4 attempts car after full shutdown to black displays, car has started. Last Friday, I went to get car from a restaurant parking lot and the same thing happened to me, although this time it seemed that the car was possessed. All the lights were flashing, radio couldn't be silenced or shut off. It was crazy. I wasn't able to shut everything down. I finally waked away from the car to go find my wife who had our other car. After about 20 minutes passed I was able to get displays to go black and proceed with normal start. Today started car and the Malfunction Alert (check engine light) came on and stayed on. Seems I have a gremlin. Any ideas?
Thanks!

check the engine grounding locations...especially on the pass shock tower and the battery cables under the pass seat.
