  • 100,000 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Jeep Compass. While driving various speeds, the air bag warning indicator illuminated and the anti lock braking system, electronic stability program, and traction warning indicators would remain illuminated. The vehicle was not taken to an independent mechanic or local dealer for diagnostic testing or repairs due to the diagnostic fees. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failures. The failure mileage was approximately 100,000.

They (dealers) keep saying my wiring harness needs replace. They replace it once on 7/11/16 cause my radiator fan would not come on and they replace the timp. Now the fan won't turn off even when the key is out. Miles on this is 130,859 I believe there a issue with this wiring harness P/N 68043111ab and the timp P/N rl028007ad check and see how many replacements they put in these models. I went to a junk yard and all the Compass's timp or fuse box had been removed.
