SOURCE: jeep compass accelerator trouble light comes on

This appears to be a failure of the Throttle Control Module, integral to the the Throttle linkage. It is a DIY practical project. Just take care to observe the set up as you dismantle the parts, and install them in the reverse order.

Why won't it accelerate?

You should have it check for diagnostic trouble codes stored in all the modules on the vehicle , ABS , BCM ,PCM . Doing this would probably give an insight to what is happening ! Most shops only charge 25 buck to do this ,you need to check around ! Stay away from pep boys they charge 90 buck ! Don't go to auto zone or any auto parts stores for that matter ,they just want to sell you parts !

Jerking accelerating

similar problems: After 20min cool down jeep was bucking/lurching that I traced to bad o2 sensor in exhaust manifold (which you've replaced is seems). The second problem of bucking/lurching, backfiring under certain driving conditions I traced to the battery sliding into the computer wiring harness, disrupting sensor input / output signals. I cured this problem by placing a 1" spacer on rear battery clamp, pushing the battery forward. Been years and no return of problem.

so the opr guide says get it serviced, is that hard?

or if DIY? and motivated?, you can scan it using a real scan tool.
it's your choice

you scan, or they scan.
use a real shop not autozoned, real shops have a real tool
that sees all J007 (100s there are) DTC codes , not only
federal codes but all jeep extended codes too.
see? a good tool is about $150.
beg'.barrow. buy, rent or have it done (scan)
most real shops do this for free. ask them?
as a service, and better public image.
