Poor/bad corroded battery connections can cause all this. Remove the air intake plastics and start with the negative cable. Clean both the post and cable lug inside until shiny. You likely need to buy a post cleaning tool at a auto shop to do this properly. Then move onto the +ve post. Check all visible ground straps under the hood for corrosion (green/blue corrosion) at the lugs. Clean as required.
A failing battery can also do this in my opinion. If the problem persists make sure the connection of the ground cable and power down under is good as well. You could check and or get another battery depending on age.
As for the initial cleaning reconnect in reverse order. Last off goes on first, (+ve) then the -ve cable.
NOTE: for safety everything should be off inside and ignition off without a key in and doors closed.
Good luck. without details on history etc its difficult to be any more specific since nothing is provided. We can only surmise its a Compass, that is it.
