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.

Jeep Compass RecallsSteering Fluid Leaks From Detached Return Hose
The power steering low pressure return hose may leak from a mis-installed clamp. Dealers will inspect the clamp and adjust it as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.
522 vehicles equipped with a 2.4L engine are being recalled because the engine may have abrasive debris in the balance shaft bearings. The debris can result in premature wear and loss of engine oil pressure. As a result, the engine could stall unexpectedly or fail. Dealers will replace the engine balance shaft module to correct this concern.
The airbag system contains various components which deploy to help protect vehicle occupants if a crash occurs. These vehicles are being recalled because the seatbelt pre-tensioners and/or side airbags may be slow to deploy when needed. Delayed deployment will increase the risk of personal injury. Dealers will update the airbag system software to correct this concern.
