My 4wd! Light came on 2 days ago as I was pulling out of the parking lot from getting 2 new tires on the front. New tires 15 50 17, old 15 60 17, is that enough difference to be the problem?

Yes, I would think so. You are putting strain on the AWD system. The 215 50 17's are 25.5" in Diameter, the 215/60-17 are 27.2" in Diameter. So a difference of 1.7". With AWD model cars the tires must measure within .25-.5" of each other. 215-60/17 should be your tire I think. Some Jeeps came with 215-65/17's. I'm surprised the tire shop installed the 50 series knowing the rears didn't match.

2007 is the 1st Model year for the Compass. Mine was purchased in November 2006, but its a 2007 Model.
