Hey everyone, I’m new to this discussion and apologize if someone has already brought it up. I own a 2017 Jeep Compass Trailhawke (love it to pieces). I’m the second owner of the vehicle (I’ve had it for 2 years now), and only just now coming across issues. Last week I had to have both of the batteries replaced and all seemed right however, the battery light came on yesterday and today with a message saying “Stop Safely. Vehicle will shut off soon”. When I got the batteries fixed, they ran a test to see if it was anything else, and it wasn’t showing that it was. I’m wondering if anyone has had this happen to them? Is this an alternator problem? I don’t know if this matters, but it has 65k miles on it.
Looking for any tips/advice that I should be aware of. Thank you!

Thank you all for the advice and input on the matter. I ended up taking it to my mechanic where I learned that the bolts that were used to re-install the batteries were too big/long and were causing the issues. I had taken it to O’Reilly’s for the battery change, since I didn’t know how to do that myself. Going forward, I now know how to install my own batteries 🤘🏼thank goodness for it being a simple fix.
