Dec. 13, 2017—Chrysler is recalling 25,823 model year 2017-2018 Jeep Compasses.

The brightness of the backlighting for the Instrument Panel Cluster (IPC) cannot be adjusted.

These vehicles, therefore, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Controls and Displays."

An instrument cluster that is too bright, and cannot be dimmed, can reduce the driver's ability to see at night, increasing the risk of a crash.
