SOURCE: 2002 RX 300
I have a 2001 RX 300 and mine has done the same thing. The first time it happened the dealer had me bring it in. It was under warranty, and they replaced something, which I can't remember. Then it happened a year or so ago, and the service rep at the dealership told me that her car does the same thing, and I should just let it reboot itself in a day or so. It did it two days ago driving back from a long trip. The service rep said to bring it in because she didn't know what was going on (I think she was new).
It's now resolved itself again. It must be a fluke with the model, but I don't worry about it.

Transmission problems in the RX300 are common for those who never flush the transmission fluid. I would strongly urge you to quit driving your RX300 and get it to a dealership where they can flush the transmission fluid. There is no transmission fluid filter (per say) but there is a "screen" inside the transmission that needs to be flushed out (this serves as the filter). Pull out your dipstick for the transmission and smell the transmission fluid - does it smell burned? I hope not, but regardless, take it to a dealership and get the tranny flushed and see if that makes a difference. Also, continue to flush the transmission every 60,000 miles at most! Lexus says that you do not need to flush the transmission, but I think you do. I have a 2001 Lexus RX300 and I have had no problems with the tranny and I've flushed it at 60,000 miles and then again at 115,000 miles. I now have just a little over 120,000 on it. It's a good running vehicle but you need to care for it!

Depending on how many miles you have on it. You may need to have some repairs done. I don't know if there is much you can do to a jeep after it starts slipping other than try and change the fluid. The rebuild is the best option for you for sure. But you could put some no slip transmission fluid additives in it. Go to a parts store if you think thats your best option and tell them whats wrong and they will hook you up with some good additives. Go to Advance Auto or Auto Zone. The rebuild will be less expensive if the transmission still functions. Around $1000 versus the non functioning transmission that would cost about $1400-$2000. New transmission cost a lot more.
And don't forget! Please leave four thumbs up. I always try my best at explaining my answer to your problem.
