32,000 miles and suddenly when I stop or slow down to turn it won't move and I get that Shift to P then Desired Gear. Well that doesn't work, I have to turn off the vehicle and then shift to drive before it will move again. Also something clunking underneath.

That is bizarre! I've never heard of that happening. Is your Compass the 1st or 2nd generation? I'm guess it's a 2nd because the 1st gen didn't have many electronic problems; the 2nd generation has a lot.

Does it do it every time? If so your dealer could probably trouble-shoot it. Maybe they can trace it from the stored code, regardless.

There's nothing so frustrating as bringing it to the dealer, shelling out the bucks, then having them say they couldn't duplicate the problem. :confused:

Ever get to the bottom of this? 2017, second gen here and this is the exact same thing mine started doing. Nothing but problems, I’ve really grown to hate this car.

I hadn't seen this thread. I started another thread about the same problem, but mine had a less specific title.
I am connecting it to snow/ice encrustations on some transmission controller. My problem wasn't solved, it just went away. That was a week ago and we have plenty of winter left in front of us. I hope I don't see that warning again, but if I do, I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for the info, that’s actually really helpful. I had just driven on super salty roads through Maryland and Pennsylvania and seemingly after this heavy rain the problem hasn’t reoccurred.
