Jeep compass 2009, Car shuts off as soon as it is put into gear. Can someone point me in the right directions as to why it is doing this?
Is it actually shutting off like the key was turned off, or is the transmission killing it when you put it in gear? Do you hear for feel a slight bang in the drivetrain when you try to put it in gear? If so then the problem could be a locked up torque converter, if not then start looking for any wiring that might be rubbed trough near any moving parts that could arc out during shifting, a wiggle test sometimes proves fruitful in some of these cases.
Thanks for answering. When the car starts it turns over fine, when put I. Gear the motor stops running, no clunking just stops. First time it happened I was driving down the road & it died.
Were you pulling up to a slow down area or a stop when it just quit running.
