I just bought a 2020 Jeep Compass Trailhawk about a month ago. Vehicle has been solid and fantastic, really enjoying it. Today, however, I got in the car and got repeated alarms and notifications/service lights for darn near every system:
-4wd unavailable
-ABS service
-Engine Service
on and on

Any thoughts?

Most likely a low or bad battery. Since these systems rely on sensors for everything, when the voltage gets low, the sensors give weird readings and the car thinks everything is acting up.

Aha! We found some extra information! I went to check the battery and lo and behold...a rat has taken up residency in the new vehicle's engine compartment, peeing and pooping all over the battery, tearing up the battery cover, and just being a total pain in the ace. Have to wait until next week to get it in to see how much damage it caused. Time to kill a rat....
