Hi All,
Has anyone experienced this?
I ran to the store and when I turned the key off it kept running. the lights and radio stayed on with the key out and the door closed. Once I got the enging to stop it was making a loud clicking sound from the fromt of the engine compartment and the dash lights were flickering.
when I restarted it and drove home the check engine light came on. THe car did the exact same thing when I got home and turned the key off. I had to disconnect the battery to make it stop.

Thanks

Actually I believe someone else on the forum did experience something similar to this... I beleive it was somewhere in the general discussion section.

Yep, and they seem to have come to something of a conclusion as to what the root cause was: http://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1645.

Perhaps that might shed some light on your situation, also, and at least arm you with something to take to the dealership and have them investigate.

Good luck! :)
