2001 Jeep won't reverse

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee will suddenly not go into reverse. It sounds like the gear switches but now it won't move when the gas is applied.

    I put it in reverse, hear the wheels lock in? but press on the gas and it just revs up. I have not had any signs of problems until now and it works in drive just fine.

Depending upon what transmission you have, it could be a bad solenoid or control unit, bad reverse band or servo or a few other things. If you find no external problems, you will need a trans shop to examine it. If rpm drops when reverse is selected that means it's trying to go but has an internal problem.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee makes a lot of noise when selecting Reverse. Forward gear okay. Now, reverse doesn't work and it sounds like the transmission is coming apart.


Your automatic transmission has an internal low and indirect clutch. The indirect clutch is what's used when your vehicle is in reverse. You might have a heavy jerking when you put it into gear that feels like vehicle got hit by another or loud rattling or chattering in gears. It very well may be coming apart as you think and soon, so I'd recommend taking it to your local transmission shop to inspect and test it and they can give you a more detailed idea of what it would take to fix it. good luck

My 2003 Jeep grand cherokee will not move in reverse. I can hear and feel it switch into reverse but the vehicle doesn't move.


I'm gonna try this one from memory( but you should really should use the repair manual)Sounds like the output shaft ,ideler gear or reverse gear is worn. This repair is gonna involve a tranny tear down. I suggest you have it serviced by an ASE Certified Transmission Technician. They will get it right the first time.
