Compass in the shop for ETC
I'm on the way to Michigan from Minnesota last night (~700 miles), and at a routine stop on the expressway for fuel, I get to the light off of the off-ramp, and my dash goes crazy with warning lamps. ETC (Electronic Throttle Control) sensor (the "lightning-bolt"), and the ESP (Electronic Stability Program) lights start flashing at me. The jeep starts bucking, brakes are about at half power, and steering is heavy. I make it to the fuel pump, and shut the car down. Fuel it up, and start it back up - It drives completely normal with no warning lamps. Nothing until I finally make it to my destination exit, and the same thing happens. This time I limp it to the driveway, and park it for the night. This morning took it into the Jeep dealership, and explain the problem. I haven't received a call back from them, but researching this problem, it seems like the Wrangler guys have it the worst with these ETC problems. Some say that their car is in the shop for WEEKS!... and some of the time, it seems as if the service dept never really fixes the problem. I hope that isn't the case with my Compass, but I still wanted to see if anybody has had a similar problem with their Compass/Patriot. I'll keep this thread posted with anything that I hear from the dealership.
