At the beginning of December, I noticed condensation in the driver-side daytime running light of my 2017 Trailhawk. Took it to the dealership and they told me the part was on nationwide backorder (1 month later and still no part). I mentioned that if the part is on nationwide backorder, this must be a common problem. The service person just replied, “Yeah.” Now yesterday, as I was walking around the back of the Compass, I noticed condensation in ALL 4 of the taillight housings! So I’m thinking, the Jeep can ford 19 inches of water but it can’t survive a few trips through the car wash? Am I alone with this problem, or are others also having condensation issues with their 2nd-gen Compasses?

I'm not having an such issue that I can recall. Its too cold out now for anything to happen like that here though.

I've seen this in the last few vehicles I've owned. Unless it builds up to standing water in the housing, I wouldn't worry about it. All it means is that the air inside the housing had more "humidity" in it than the outside air, and the housing cooled enough for it to make a bit of fog. It usually takes a substantial temperature difference to do this. Once again, let temperature differences settle and wait to see if it clears on its own. These are all plastic, so nothing is going to rust.
