After almost 3 weeks of maintenance, the car was returned to us and ran for a month without problem before resurfacing again with one additional problem. The start-stop button could only start the electronics but would not switch off the car.
BHPian starlord recently shared this with other enthusiasts.
Need help. I acquired a used 2017 Jeep Compass Limited diesel last year at roughly 55k. The car had a few niggles which were sorted by repairing – the AC heat exchanger, overused clutch, and new tyres. The car dutifully ferried me for another 20k without a hitch.
I had a minor scare with electronics malfunctioning, loss of power in the steering, and fuel cutoff to the engine, which was promptly corrected by the Jeep Chandigarh workshop. They identified the reason was a loose bus connection ECU to the engine.
I beached the car over an open manhole while commuting to the office in Delhi. The aforementioned problems returned en masse. I had to tow the car to a private workshop, the electronics malfunction flare was temporarily put to rest, however, the malfunction returned while driving back home a week later. The car was sent back to the workshop and the cause identified was a fused capacitor in the electronics box as well as the wiring having an exposed section which was shorting the circuits causing ECU to shut the car down. After almost 3 weeks of maintenance, the car was returned to us and ran for a month without problem before resurfacing again with one additional problem. The start-stop button could only start the electronics but would not switch off the car. The car as we speak is in the workshop again and I am looking now for additional solutions to this problem.
Any advice/ insights/ ideas would be helpful.
Here’s what BHPian bijims had to say on the matter:
Oh No, another Jeep Compass woe, Try and get the issues sorted out with Jeep-authorized dealerships, if the issues keep recurring, then I would advise you better get it off your hands while you can, otherwise, the financial impact of these continuous repairs will be quite cumbersome.
The initial lot of the 2017 Jeep Compass had quite a fair share of niggles including:
- Vehicle stalling while driving
- Engine not starting
- Fuel spilling out while filling
- Electrical system problems
- Engine and engine cooling problems
- Transmission issues such as harsh downshifting, slips, and intermittent “shift to park” warnings
- Vehicle shutting down while driving
- Excessive oil usage
So, if the one you bought is with these issues, sad to say, the owner who got rid of it in the first place, must have done so on account of these as well.
