Question about 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I need help with a 2006 grand cherokee.

It won't shift out of 1st gear. pretty sure this is a computer problem. check engine light is on. when i disconnected and re connected the battery the vehicle will reset and shift fine through all gears for about two minutes. then back to first it goes.

    yeah.... they scanned it and gave me the standard auto zone answer. " uh it's the transmission"....... I've heard that there is some sort of sensor on the transmission that will cause this type of problem. just trying to avoid the eighty dollar fee at the local jeep dealer to tell me it will be a thirty dollar part that will take me ten minutes to change.

    I have a 2006 Jeep GC Laredo with the same issue. It does not always happen every drive - but is happening more and more frequently. It also happens more when it is cold out for some reason, the jeep will star t fine but once I get oging it does not want to shift out of 1st for awhile. This also happens when I am at stop light sometimes, it will rev high and not shift from first for some time. Any suggestions?? Please help!!!

    what is the trouble code, and be advised that the powertrain control module itself is seldom the problem.

Sounds like it's going into the limp home mode... if you live near an autozone they will scan the codes for free... that should help you locate the problem.

  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.
the TCM shifts to second with good inputs to the TCM
if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

Won't shift out of 1st. gear


Hi your problem is an easy one to solve. The trasducer in your transmission is out of calibration. The best thing is to have it replaced by your competent mechanic. The replacement part should cost you about $150.00 plus labor. Happy shifting.

What are the symptoms of a speed sensor going bad on a 1997 jeep grand cherokee laredo 6 cyl.


Since alot of things rely on data from the speed sensor you will "usually" get an ABS alarm, little or no shifting,no indication of speed on the speedometer, and the check engine light. without the abs light and with a speed indicated I would lean toward a transmission problem

I have a 1999 grand cherokee. The check engine light came on with a P1768 code. If I keep the trans in the "drive" position and start off, it feels like the transmission is in 3rd gear. No...


Hi, Your like your jeep is in limp in mode, this is to keep you from burning up transmission and to get you some were off the road, the p1768 code means A/T Transmission Relay Output Always Off. This should be checked out by your local shop or dealer. but you should make sure that the fluid level is correct, if to low there is not enough fluid pressure for the solenoid's to engage the relays. Hope this can help you out. If i can help you anymore fell free to re post.
Thanks dodge tec

My 96 Jeep has trouble shifting from 2nd to 3rd gear.The rpms go up to 4500 then it shifts.


That sounds like the 1st thing to check is the transmission fluid.Start the car ,warm it up,now shift through all the gears and stop in (N).With the engine running,check the fluid level.Top up if needed.If you do,look for leaks.Hope this helps

as a quick remedy 1st check your fluid make sure is clean and leveled/adjust your kick down cable for early shifting by loosening the cable till you establish the right shifting

Check the Trans fluid level with it running and at operating temperature. Jeep NAG1 transmissions are known to have the input electric seal leak trans fluid. Not an exspensive fix add Mopar ATF4 and then relace the guild seal.

Check fluid to make sure it's full. Did you check to make sure that when you move the shifter, the transmission shift lever on the case moves? Assuming it's an automatic, if fluid is full and linkage moves properly, has fluid been changed? If not, do it! (including filter) If when changing fluid, you find an excessive amount of fine metal or clutch material in pan, chances are the unit has worn out and needs rebuild, If everything inside is clean & good then finish with change and check results.If still having same problem it's likely internal or if electrically shifted, a shift module problem etc.
