SOURCE: 1995 jeep laredo overdrive is not shifting

Your overdrive should kick in at about 45mph, pretty much at or about 2000rpm. To see if it engaged, lightly touch the brake pedal and it will disengage.It should also disengage when you mash the pedal down to go into passing gear, and re-engage when conditions "normalize" again. You can tell that it has engaged because the tach will drop a few hundred rpms. If it's not doing this, a simple trans oil change (with filter) may correct the problem. OD is activated by a shift solenoid on the valve body that may be a bit gummed up.
95's show a shift control module on some diagrams I've seen, but not on others. I read this as a possible "half-year change" So you may or not have one. If you do, I'd check that as well!

My 97 Jeep Grand Cherokee was doing the same thing. I changed the TPS ( Throttle Position Sensor) Now it is great goes into overdrive fine. It is really easy to change.

SOURCE: shift indicator light 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee

There are two parts to it, a voltage resistor, and the EL panel itself.

You need to remove the console first. There are 2 screws under the front rubber pad, two under the cup holder, two in the bin. Remove those six first, take the storage bin out, then slide the rear cupholder out, remove the two screws under the cup holder, and one in front of it.

There are a total of 6 flat screws, and 3 self tapping screws you have removed.

Put the parking brake on, shift the tranny to N, and the transfer case to the middle position if equipped.

Remove the entire console. Slide the shifter beezel as far up vertically as you can. There are 4 clips you ned to remove to do it.
You will see a blue and black wire running into the back. Follow those wires to the resistor. You will see a transparent EL panel attatched to the resistor by two clips.

Usually, one or both of these clips has come loose, causing the light to work intermittantly. Clip them back on, and turn on the headlights to confirm that the light works correctly now.

Re-install everything in the opposite order.

1998 jeep cherokee,has a sluggish pick up.


Jeeps have electric solenoids inside the transmission, (shift solenoids) I would have the jeep tested at the advance auto or autozone for codes if the check engine light is on; (its free) and go from there. sounds like the jeep may be in limp mode which chrysler created to protect the transmission. limp mode will not allow the jeep to shift all the way up to overdrive or shift all the way down to 1st shifting position. feels like it has to get going over25 to move well . AAMCO transmissions will diagnose your jeep for free in most states.
