SOURCE: 1984 Jeep CJ7, Gear shifting / Linkage problem

likely the shift rails are worn inside the trans. In changing shift, you have removed the wear on the end of the stick, but not the corresponding wear where the stick fits into. It will need to be taken apart to repair this. (would not hurt to have synchros replaced at the same time.) OR, replace transmission if you have an inexpensive one available.

SOURCE: ac/heater fan switch problem on a 2006 jeep commander

next to the fan motor there should be a connector that has three or four wires that attached to the blower resistor. it should have two screws holding it to heater case, just pull it out and replace.

Testimonial: "This info was very helpful but need a little more info of where the fan motor is located. I will post another question to find that info."

SOURCE: install a altenator for a 2006 jeep commander

I would rate this a 5 in difficulty. If you have a metric socket set, basic hand tools and a supertine belt tool it's fairly easy repair. You can rent a surpentine belt tool at Autozone.

Disconnect the battery
remove the cowling
remove the supertine belt from the altenator pully
disconnect the red wire on the back of the altenator
disconnect the harness plug from the altenator
remove the bolts holding the altenator to the mounting brackets.
Reverse the process with the new altenator and it it's done.
Make sure your battery is charged before you start the engine a low battery can cause damage to your new altenator.

Automatic tranmission not working on overdrive, tacoma 2006

The knock sensor fault may be preventing the transmission from shifting to OD. The main engine computer also sends commands to the transmission computer. Your transmission valve body is controlled by electronics.

What is a knock sensor in my 2006 jeep commander with the hemi?

the knock sensor is a sensor that detects any abnormal engine knocking/ pinging, (pre-detonation) caused by low octane fuel or lean air/fuel mixtures. When it detects a pre-detonation knock it sends this information to the PCM and the PCM will normally ****** the ignition timing to prevent damage to the engine. However if it is detecting a knock from say bad bearings it can ****** the timing all it wants and it will not help anything. At this point you have a mechanical failure.

yes shifter software is the problem.. depending on the hardware version you may just need a software update ... as for the no start always try to disconnect the battery and reconnect it before spending money once its out of warranty.. you would be amazed how much that can fix buy doing that
