What could be causing the 2007 Jeep Compass headlights to only work on high beam?

The 2007 Jeep Compass headlights are controlled by the Totally Integrated Power Module, TIPM. The TIPM is a box that is located under the hood and holds all the fuses. Try disconnecting both the battery cables and hold the ends together for two minutes. Reconnect them to the battery and check the lights again. This usually helps to reboot the TIPM and the lights start working again.

If this does not work then you need to check the wiring between the TIPM and inspect it for damage or corrosion. If there is no problem with the wiring then there may be some internal TIPM failure and you may have to replace it.
