Jeep Compass Problem Report

Jeep Compass Engine Will not Start Due to Wireless Control Module Fault

(19 reports)

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.

Went to work and it was fine. Left work and would not do anything -
all dash lights come on, radio works, headlights on, but motor will not crank, tried removing IOD fuse to reset WCM (this worked once before) not this time. Tried to disconnect battery to reset and that did not work -
Car would not start. had it towed to Jeep dealer... Fortunately, I got extended lifetime warranty... Cost $100.. now only 96 more years of warranty left -
Won't start but everything else works fine -
Engined turns over but will not start. -
Car sometimes wont start but, still has battery life -
All dash lights...won't crank over .. nothing! -
Dash lights lite up, little acceleration in the gas. I could stil drive it at idle speed. towed it to the jeep dealership they said it was the control module. It did reset itself after they looked at it, luckly cause I didn't have the 1400.00 they wanted to replace it... Pretty sure this should be a recall, but jeep is dragging there feet because the same thing is happening the Laredo series and that has a recall... -
Just happened to me, 2014 Jeep Compass, had the keyless entry installed on Friday and Saturday my car wouldn't start. -
Car would not turn over, all dash lights on. Replaced starter & battery. Not the problem. Took back to dealership and we were notified it was the WCM. -
