Sounds like the bands need adjusted. Grab a Haynes manual from advance auto parts and follow the procedure for that. Its a simple and cheap fix. You pull the pan and remove the valve body, grab your torque wrench and tighten the bands to specs. Might just save you a transmission rebuild.

Does it shift into 3rd at the right speed? If 2nd is just missing, try adjusting the kickdown band. (front band). The adjustment screw is on the outside of the case.

Where is the shift soleniod located?

The transmission shift solenoids are located in the valve body, which is in the transmission. If you remove the transmission pan you will see the valve body. I believe any faulty shift solenoids are serviced as an entire valve body on the Avengers.

Location diagram transmission shift soleniod & photo of soleniod.The car stays in first gear to long before it changes.Could this be the problem.

We do not have diagrams of this setup, but the shift solenoids are all one piece or rack of solenoids you could say, they are located inside the transmission attached to the valve body of the transmission, to access them you must remove the pan on the bottom of the automatic transmission.

Yes the Solenoid is attached to the valve body and if you got a defective one that means you will be having problems and delays with shifting and you might lose one of the gears like 4th or 3rd .

I have a 94 cherokee limited 5.2 v8. which transmissions are come

The 46rh is a hydraulic transmission as where the 46re is an electric transmission. With minor wiring you can replace the 46re with the 46rh but not the other way around. Your transmission would stay in limp mode and wouldn't shift out of 2nd gear. So the answer is no.
