    do you have any engine lights on ?

    this may be b/c you car when into a FMM (failure managment mode) and needs to be reset. if you have an engine light on this is why. disconect your battery for 30 min 1 hour if the lights don't rest this may be a bigger problem

VW Automatic transmissions must be filled within a specific level or they will not shift. Also, must have VW special transmission fluid or ATF +4 FULL SYNTHETIC!!! Required to create proper internal pressure...

Have a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4WD, 5.2L, 8 cyl, automatic that's not shifting. Transmission fluid looks good, no burnt smell, no metal bits in fluid, no grinding gears. Won't shift til you...


If the transmission will not go into gear or has trouble finding gears and has the proper amount of fluid, the shifting linkage could be bent or misaligned, especially on automatic models. The linkage can be found on the driver side of the transmission, toward the top of the unit. Inspect it to make sure the components aren't bent or broken and have someone shift the Grand Cherokee while you watch from underneath. Most times, only minor adjustments are necessary.
Also, check Torque Converter and scanned the TCM (Trans Control Module) to know if some fault code is stored there.
