Question about Jeep Compass
My 2008 jeep compass will not start it dont turn over the lights come on thats it not coming up with code our nothing please help
That is stater failure, (not a part, a system of parts)
if it cant crank over, it will not start if transmission is A/T.
my m/t push starts and gravity starts.
the starter can fail to crank for a vast number of reasons.
battery dead, bad or weak ,or discharged
battery cable ends corroded, zero service.
starter bad. (the part)
key line dead.
shifter a/t switch bad "PRNDL", wiggle it and then try to crank in NEUTRAL. yes wiggle the shift lever as you CRANK.
alarm system cut outs, (non stock alarm?)
remote start bs, (no rant, ill not do that...)
wiring hack jobs by persons that are clueless.
it the starter case with a rubber hammer , smartly, cranks now?
check battery voltage as you crank, if it drops below 10v (11 is better)
the baTTERY IS weak or starter is shorted. ( i then whip out my ammeter,, and,,,,,, sure you have no tools.)

SOURCE: location of cabin air filter
It can have a cabin air filter, but most vehicles ship without it.
Either way, you can access the cabin air filter housing by opening the glove box all the way (squeeze the sides so it clears the stops).
The filters are around $15 at the dealer.
Whether or not there's a cabin filter installed, make sure you're also following Chrysler's recommendations in the owner's manual—running the air on recirculate all the time will encourage mold and bacteria to grow.

I had same prob with Grand Cherokee - no rhyme nor reason as to when, where or why it wouldn't start. After two new starters the shop finally found a starter wire/cable that was corroded on the inside. Mech' could move it back and forth and it would / would not start. Changed cable six months ago - no problems since. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: rain water leaked thru the
Does the vehicle have a sun/moon roof? If so, it is common for the drain tube to become plugged which causes the water to back up into the sun roof module. The water then spills over into the rails that run side to side and leaks into the passenger compartment. The low point of the roof rails being the interior light. Open the sun roof all of the way and look for the drain tube(s). They usually tap into one or more of the corners of the sun roof module and then follow the conture of the vehicle either to the front or rear and drain the water out near the wheelhouse area. You'll need to find some way to disconnect the tubes from the module and flush the debris out. It is usually tiny bits of dust or sand that will flush out quite easily. You have to watch out for a couple of things. Do not drop the tubes as they may fall into the channel of the vehicle, and, use very light water pressure when flushing. There may be other connections in the hose downstream, and you don't want to dislodge those connections.
