RECALL: 2022 Jeep® Compass For Cluster Display Illumination Issue

Only 90 Units Are Affected By This Latest Recall...

Stellantis (FCA US, LLC) has issued a recall for approximately 90 units of its 2022 Jeep Compass vehicles due to a potential issue with the illumination of the instrument panel center cluster display. Specifically, it may not be adequately illuminated and therefore not visible during daytime driving conditions. This non-compliance with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 101, “Control and Displays,” has led to the recall of these vehicles

It has been discovered that certain vehicles listed above may have been constructed with incompatible components, leading to insufficient backlighting of the instrument panel center cluster display. This may cause the display to be unreadable to the driver during daylight driving conditions, potentially diverting their attention away from driving while trying to locate information on the cluster display. This distraction could result in a sudden vehicle crash, without any warning to the driver.

The suspect period began on May 12th, 2022, when vehicles with incompatible components began production, and ended on August 8th, 2022, when vehicles with incompatible components were no longer produced. The suspect period was determined using vehicle production records.

My VIN is not showing up as part of this recall, but I am experiencing this problem. Is it just taking time for the VIN to register as part of the recall?
