2008 Jeep Compass ProblemsWater Leaks From the Front and/or Rear Roof Area
Water leaks may be noted from the front and/or rear roof area. Our technicians recommend to inspect the roof ditch and sunroof - Check all grommets and plugs, reseal roof seams, and replace the sunroof drain tubes if necessary.
A no crank or no start condition may develop due to electronic lockup of the wireless control module (WCM), also referred to as the Sentry Key Remote Entry Module (SKREEM). When this module fails the remote keyless entry system will also not operate. The WCM is commonly replaced to correct this concern.
A rattle type noise may be noted from the AC compressor or the compressor could be damaged due to "slugging" of the refrigerant. The compressor may require replacement to correct this concern. If the compressor is replaced an updated condenser may also be required.
2008 Jeep Compass QuestionsWhy does my car idles low at stopped at red light? (3 answers)
No check engine light on. Car drives perfect until i stop at lights. Feels like its going to shut off. When drive its fine. Rpm drops to 500
I had a thought about my dome light filling with water during a heavy rain. Maybe the drain tubes aren't large enough to handle that much water at one time? I wonder if replacing the drain tubes would work? Has anybody tried?
