Why does the roof of my Jeep Compass leak as soon as it rains? Also, the A/C compressor is making an abnormal noise. Can this be fixed?
Water leaks have been known to originate from the front and/or rear roof area. Have a certified technician inspect the roof ditch and sunroof - have all the grommets and plugs checks, roof seams resealed, and the sunroof drain tubes replaced, if necessary.

How come my Jeep Compass won't start using the wireless control module? Why is the handling of my Jeep Compass all of a sudden very heavy or rough?
There is an electronic lockup with the wireless control module or WCM if the engine will neither crank nor start. Inevitably, the remote keyless entry system will not work either. Replacing the WCM will fix the problem.
Check the vehicle's front struts for any fluid leakage. This is most likely the cause of the rough handling. An experienced mechanic will advise you to replace the leaking struts and install a revised jounce bumper and dust shield should correct these issues.
