SOURCE: jeep codes location of unit
Got me a complete manual for 199 jeep factory model and found location of each individual unit in question. Manual gives u possible solution to each code and repair and or replace. As a mechanic myself testing, trouble shooting and repair was not that difficult. Shift solenoid was very difficult to get to. Located under the head lamp passenger side.

There is a technical service bulletin to correct this condition. Replacement of the car's Electronic Control Unit (the computer) will cure this. Take it to a Toyota dealer and have them replace it for free.

SOURCE: Pressure Control Solenoid P2716
have the code checked especially if the car is out of warranty. If it is still under warranty take the car to the dealership
. The Pressure Control Solenoid determines the quality and accuracy of the shift points and if you let it go the transmission will not shift properly after a period of time.
The pressure control solenoid is used by the PCM to raise the mainline hydraulic pressure during high throttle - this increases the holding force on the clutches and bands and prevents slipping. The pressure control solenoid is controlled by pulses from the PCM and this in turn operates the boost valve insde the valve body.
The problem could be either in the PCM or it could be an electrical problem with the solenoid. As suggested it should be diagnosed by a transmission tech. They can check if the PCM is good by looking at the pulses with an oscilloscope at the connector and they should also be able to test the continuity of the solenoid. If the solenoid is faulty the valve body will need to be removed and the solenoid replaced.

You may not have to replace it yourself. I hope your car is under 80,000-100,000 miles there was a recall issued for that problem.
P2716 is caused by a bad Ecm, (engine control module,) Toyota has an upgraded ECM for this and are warrantying these for 8 years or 80k miles, Take it to the dealer and have them replace it for you, there should be no charge if the vehicle is under 80k miles according to service bulletin (41554a).
