Question about 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee

3 Answers

Transmission My 1995 Grand cherokee won't shift into overdrive. Now it starts out in 3rd and won't shift down and sometimes it stays in first. The OD light won't turn off so I can't retrive the codes to find the problem. Any Ideas.

    Transmission goes into safe mode (will run in third gear only). This problem started after I had the trany rebuilt. Trany shop said it must be an electrical problem so I took it to my regular mechanic and he has replaced the TCM twice, and gone thru everything he can think of. He says there are no electrical problems outside the trany. Returned to trany shop and they replaced all electrical components inside the trany. I drove it home, 3 miles, and it ran execellent. Later that day we drove it 1.4 miles and it went into safe mode again. The TCU/SRS DIAG fuse (10 amp) keeps burning out. Everyone is extremely frustrated! Both shops are very reputable.

Ljbbw, I have somewhat the same problem. I have a 95 ZJ and mine starts out in 2nd gear, OD light always on for the OFF selection, and whatnot. I found out from a local garage (waiting for a 2nd opinion) that 1st gear no longer exists on my transmission, I have to start in 2nd from a full stop or low speed roll, and then shift into 3rd/Drive, but no OverDrive, so at like 60 mph I hit 2700 rpm and it wont up or downshift. Its potential it COULD be the torque converter off as they thought it could have been my issue, but who knows, get it looked at before something really goes wrong?

You can retrieve the codes through the OBD dianostic connector with a scanner.

I don't think my 95 Grand Cherokee is shifting into overdrive all the time. Can you tell me what the RPMs should be for it running 65 MPH?


Depending on differential gearing, most run at about 21 hundred rpms @65. Overdrive usually shifts in at around 45mph. To see if it is engaged, while doing about 50, lightly tap the brake. That should momentarily disengage the od and the rpm's should increase for a moment. @45, you should notice the rpm drop when it engages initially.

1995 jeep cherokee larado wont shift to third or fourth its a 4.0


Check you transmission fluid first. This transmission has gears 1-2 auto 3 and OD 4. If you are in 3rd and 4th and it is not recognizing it, it may be the linkage or you transmission needs to be serviced. This transmission and transfer case in this year jeep if bullet proof. It is a great setup. You shouldn't have this problem unless the service to the transmission has been neglected. Pleas don't forget to rate this solution for me.

My 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission slips in overdrive


sounds like a possible shift solenoid. If it's due for a fluid change, do that and add a container of lucas trans conditioner. Likely you have a drain plug on the pan so if the fluid was recently serviced, just drain a quart out and replace with the additive, then top off.
If the condition does not change within a week, likely you will need better diagnosis from a reputable trans shop.

Odd shifting 99 jeep grand cherokee


A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.

Replace the Transmissions Control Module (TCM) that mounts on the driver's side firewall. I have had to do this twice with mine. Glad the TCM was under warranty.
