Question about 2009 Jeep Compass

Open Question

Several DTC codes came up on my 2009 Jeep Compass, does this mean I need major (costly) work done to my vehicle? The codes are: c101F, C2116, C1047, C1042, U1418, and PO746.

SOURCE: 2007 jeep compass, 21000 miles,

leased? take that thing back and dispute that it is not safe to drive. they need to do a complete check up on that vehicle. it could be as little as the the dash malfunctuning, to brake broken and 4wd broken. which idk how that would even be possible. at 21000 miles it may still be under warrenty and there is prob something writen into the lease about problems like this. please go to your dealer

How can I increase the horse power of a 2014 Jeep Compass 2.0L?

simple answer no.
but in all cases. speed cost$, how FA$T do you WI$H to gO?
id never own any compass. (see the problems here, 1000s)
get Jeep Grand cherokee.
not anything Korean, Japan yes.
increased power means burns more fuel
so my guess is fuel is not and issue. it is dirt cheap now.

To make real power , with fixed displacement (means no engine swap)
takes force inducition
or changing to Nitro Methane.
id bet the costs and horrors of custom cars is not your bag.

nor voiding warranty ,that you for sure will do
why not test drive more cars, and expand on that.
drive 2014 Jeep WK, try one,, and be amazed
keep in mind the great resale value of jeeps and WK
unlike many other cheap cars.... and are..

if it must be tiny engines, cars,
try driving Toy, RAV4?
toyota are far better than anything from korea...

why do you need all this power
are you at high altitude?
pulling boats?

find something that drives nice
and has nice cost of ownership.long term

if renting,leasing,? that be something else.

2009 jeep compass 2.4l one ignition coil not firing tried to replace but still not firing what else could be the problem

so the scan tool tells you which one fails?
P030x (why not tell me which one, ?)
so a coil is dead using a fresh new spark plug or some old ratty plug.?
why not say what you mean by NOT FIRING
what did you do to prove that. here ill guess.
  1. scan tool told me. (DTC)
  2. a test spark plug is dead. (new plug)
  3. the shorting out of spark plug by hand did not drop RPM?
  4. the Pyro IR gun shows low temp on cylinder x, (not stated)
  5. the header runner on runner x is cold.
  6. The timing light is dead on wire X
  7. ?
at the least,

Code p161B mean on a 2010 jeep compass

which engine, gas or diesel and size?
P codes are power train, so... we need what engine,
USA list
we can't ever guess engines.....
P1616 (not b)?
the other shoe drops. ?
car runs?
headlights work full bright?
scan it yet, that means using any full scan tool.
id bet there are more DTC, not seeing them all or reporting all
makes help impossible.

2009, what engine there, and transmission?>
gas engine, or diesel and what size engine,?
in what country? must i guess, that too?

P means power train.
1xxx are factory codes, 0xxx are fed standard codes.
so that means, only jeep books are accurate here.

where did you see that, (in the cluster) ???????????
or someone scan tool> or someone yelled it over shoulders, and said it wrong./????????????
was it really? and 8? or b? (kinda matters, no?) accurate inputs.
P161b ( see how easy it is to get the code wrong)?

rumor has it as
P161B: Battery disconnect/TCM internal.

clean the battery terminals,
or battery weak, voltage not 12.6vdc rested
or alternator dead, and not charging battery.

to find it, login to Mitchell.
and see all codes

or you disconnected the battery while key was on?
or failed to clear all DTC first
then see if the code comes bacK>?

Code 306, p0316 and code 316 problems just had engine head work done

Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) P0306 means that cylinder # 6 is misfiring. DTC P0316 means that cylinder #6 is misfiring bad enough that the computer has detected it within the first 1000 revolutions of the crank shaft. (I assume that these are the codes you are talking about because there is no such thing as a code "306" or "316" for your vehicle)

To put it plain and simple, you have a dead miss in cylinder #6.

This could be caused by several different things and must be properly diagnosed to prevent replacing a lot of things that do not fix the problem. It could be something as simple as a spark plug that didn't get gapped correctly, or it could be something major like a valve in your cylinder head that did not get checked or fixed properly when the head was off.

2007 jeep compass check engine light on and traction light on lost acceleration.

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

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)
