Brake problem

Well i had to get my truck again to the dealer.... to check the right rear brake of the truck. When i got home after a 200km drive, i smell a deep oddor like breake heated.

i touch all the rims, and i found the rear right breake was very much hotter that the other ones. i sent the truck to the dealer..


Next time i bought a jeep, need to buy a Toyota to be used when the jeep is in the shop...... one month ago was a abs sensor of the same tire....

i will post more news about this, for the moment they just told me that the spare part is not available locally and had to be imported from USA. (WTF???)

regards,

Well, the dealer did a maintenance of the caliper, and all the calipers of the other brakes.

They said that that fault was caused because of lack of maintenance to the calipers (#$"#$"#$?????).
They charged me USD 300.00

I hope this will not happen again.

Calipers don't require maintenance. If you get enough moisture in the fluid evenually rust on them. But that with a much much much older vehicle or if someone left the cap off the master cylinder or intentionally added water to it. Turkeys !!! or Donkey's whatever you call them there. My Jeep WJ is still running the original calipers and fluid pushing 300k (269,xxx km actually). I had a Dodge Caravan with 200,000km when I sold it and it passed certification with original calipers and fluids. Even the coolant was original in the engine.

You certainly have mechanics who know how to make money. At most the might have bled the system.

I strongly agree with you. What happen with me is that i dont have much time, so when is something corrective i sent the truck to the dealer always. Preventive maintenance i do myself.

I sold a VW Gol (rabbit) with almost 200,000km and i never do any caliper maintenance...... No problems at all (for a brazilian car)

Again... here in Peru (South America), a Compass is kinda fancy truck, and expensite (starting from 30,000 USD). Same happen with the dealer, it is the same shop for Mercedes Benz, Cryshler, Dodge, Jeep, Freightliner, all those are considered very expensive brands here, and of course they charge you very hard.....


We will see what happen next.

Cheers!!!



p.s: a week ago the local dealer had a very big news on the newspapers. They were forced to review all compass and patriots sold in Peru from 2010-2012. This because several claims on problems on seat belds and airbags (in low speed). The dealer just opened a link in their web site to check if your truck has any issue with recalls or updates. I did for mine and fortunately i dont have any.

You need to find a good mechanic. Taking to the dealer is a rip off for most of their work. If you cannot do it yourself then an independant mechanic will look after things a lot cheaper and not do what need not doing. At most only one wheel was causing the ABS issue, be it a bad sensor, sticking or seizing caliper which seems to be your situation.

I only take mine if its a warranty issue never otherwise.

Thumbs down bad luck again.... jeep compass is trash

i got all abs lights off again...........

i took the truck to the dealer.... after 4 days they told me that they need to replace the hole ABS unit (electronic + abs module), purge the brake system and testing.

This cost USD 1,875. wich is insane.... i got my track back, and only thing i can say it that jeep compass (and probably the hole jeep) is TRASH!!!!!

Now the brakes are better than before. I really dont have time to go to other shops, really not have a car is a problem for me, because i have to borrow my mothers.... i am really pissed off!!!!!!


Jeep sucks.... is only thing i can say.

Clearly they don't know what the problem is so they give you a quote to replace all the related parts and of course it should work after that. LOL

Take it to a Brake specialist who know ABS systems and is electronic competent is what I'd tell you. Dealers will suck you until you're broke to fix the vehicle.

Given where you are slippery roads, snow etc is not some thing you'll run into. You can drive and stop fine without ABS working. You can pull the master fuse in the TIPM to disable it as well. You need to have someone with a good code read pull the codes for the brake systems. Then you have a point of reference as to what areas you check. Bad sensor will even set it off. Assume they are certified Mopar trained on these.
