I had a similar experience with my 08 Compass, w/183K miles, this past Thanksgiving. The dealer replaced the ETC. Cost - $499 w/labor. Problem solved.

I am new here and since I have been reading what people have tried to fix this problem, I wanted to share what worked for me on my 2008 Jeep Patriot. I have been trying to fix the problem of being in limp mode becacause my ETC and ESP warning lights were on at the same time for over a month now. In the begining, I was able to just turn off the car and restart it and it would be fine for a few days. Then the lights would come back on and back into limp mode. After a while, that stopped working and my Jeep was stuck in limp mode and nothing I tried would work. I read that it could be the wiring, so I checked all the wiring and it looked good. I read that it could be the wheel sensors, so I replaced them, didn't work. Some people said it was the throttle body, so I spent $200 on one and replaced it, didn't work. I was fed up and was thinking about taking it to a dealer(which I did not want to do after reading all these stories about how they just start changing parts and charging out the *** until the jeep works). Then I remembered one guy, and ONE guy only mentioned that it is the battery. So I decided to check the water level in my battery and it was low. I aded water, started my Jeep, and everything was fine. I don't know if this will fix anyone elses Patriot that is having this problem, but it is something you may want to check.

Hey guys. I've been using this forum for awhile now to find/fix problems on my 2007 Jeep Patriot.

This problem started happening to me for the first time yesterday. Have almost 100k on her.

Anyways, I was fearing the cost that could be associated with this, so I was looking for the simplest, cheapest path, and work my way up. I was really excited when I read the last 2 posts about the battery. So I checked, but that was not it. I was a little bummed as it seemed that I would have to start ordering parts and stuff. So, I put everything back together, and decided to start her up so that I could hear/see the symptoms with the hood up.

Well, upon restart, it almost immediately started with the jerking and warning lights coming on, and I noticed an uncharacteristic sucking sound. So I investigated. Could not determine the source immediately so I removed the engine cover. Low and behold, on the front of the engine on the left side, there is a tube that is suppose to connect right next to the things that holds the engine cover in place.

I turned the Jeep off, properly fixed the tube on the mount, restarted her, and problem solved. WHHEEEEWWWWW

So, if you are having this same problem, start there as an easy solution. It may or may not be your problem, but it's the first place I would look (now), followed by the battery, and then on down the line like everyone else was saying.

Hope this helps at least somebody.

I've had the same issue with the ETC/ESP lights, and eventually stuck in limp mode. Mechanic replaced an ignition coil few weeks ago and that seemed to fix it. Started having the problem again, so now replacing the throttle body today. Keeping fingers crossed. Wished I would have found this forum first though...

Same problem

Today I had the same problem with my Jeep Compass 2007, I don't actually know what's the problem. I would appreciate if anyone in this forum that could fix the problem, tell me what to do, so I can solve the problem.

ETC Light nightmare!

I have had an issue with the ETC light coming on and loosing all power. The first time it left me stranded on the side of the road, I was able to shut it off and turn back on and creep home. The next day I brought it to the dealership and they cleaned the throttle body. That cost me $120.00. 9 Months later the light has come back on and again lost all power. I shut the vehicle off and turned it back on. This allowed me to go maybe 1 mile before it did it again. Long story short, I brought it to the dealership and they said I need to replace the throttle body. $675.00. I am furious! I called Chrystler and put in a complaint. I hope to hear back from them within the next couple of days. My Jeep is still in for repair. Hopefully this fixes the problem. I will be looking to trade it in soon. I hate my Jeep Compass!

Did replacing the throttle body solve the issue?

I haven't had the issue happen again. I'm using my trip meter B to keep track of the mileage since it happened and it's been nearly 1,000 miles.

Im having the issue and need to get my car 15 miles to the dealership but it is in limp. Does anyone have tips so i can get it going and not tow? Can i turn esp off? Only the traction squigly car light is on. The ESP light was on but is not anymore. Tips ive seen are clear codes, turn wheel full left and right, switch to 1st and then back to drive, Add water to the battery? Anything else i can try? Suggestions needed.

Only had this jeep 4 days.
