2012 Jeep Compass Owner

Bought my 2012 Jeep Compass 2.4L brand new December 2011. Love it...hit a deer October 2013 and did $12000 worth of damage and insurance co didn't total it...seems like odd things are going wrong ever since...on our way home from shopping tonight my check engine light came on out of no where. It currently has 57,777 miles on it. Any insight is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Going to take it to parts store and have them plug it in to see what code shows up. There are no indicators that anything is wrong tho...oil is good, not running hot, and no odd sounds or smells 😞

Parts store showed an emissions code...but after he unplugged his computer and we started the Jeep the light went off!!! He said the weather has been brining in a lot of vehicles lately!!

I reckon he cleared the error codes and EML issue may never come back - has it (weather) been overly hot?

Try not to think the worst, just drive her and enjoy the ride [][][][][][][]

It went from 90+ outside with a low of 70 down to a low of 40! My tire light came on at first then this....guessing the weather just kinda sent the cars computer into orbit! Lol. She is driving perfect so we are going with it was just odd....

Exclamation

Automotive batteries misbehave at low (and high temps) , might be worth having yours tested or replaced - low volts means electronics can go erratic!!
