I have had the opportunity to visit nearly every transmission and repair shop within a thousand square mile area in one area of the country...What I discovered is that about60% of the transmission shops were good...of those about 10% were outstanding. The 40% remaining were very poor, with about half being outright thieves! This problem had nothing to do with franchise name, but with ownership and willing crew. I found this to be true of general repair and dealerships as well!
Your transmission problem may be an electrical malfunction but then again, it might not be. If you are not totally comfortable with the shops diagnosis, bring the vehicle somewhere else.
One thing that you don't want to do is have the unit rebuilt, then figure out what's really wrong with it!
Good luck

ill pretend yes......
blown fuse. what else could cause so many things, to lose DC power.
>?
a fuse can be good, bad or intermittent , even corroded,
a tech would scratch head and pick the easiest fault to fix.
my guess, is
dashboard doesnt work means the guages , and idiot lamps are dead but the park lamps there (dimmable) do work.
so what fuse is that.? i say to self.....
I open the FSM. and look at the power cluster feed.
what do i see.?

i look in instruments page. (aka. cluster)
tells you how it works
then i jump wiring page 8w-40-2
i see what, Fuse 10. is it good? and fuse 17.
fuse 10 is key on,, and fuse 17, is hot full time.

thats it, if the cluster is dead, only fuses can kill it 100% dead
or it losts its main ground, which is unlikely but voltmeter proves
in 1min flat. (G201)


i picked right, the cluster dead, is the most simple
if Headlights are dead, its most simple (not in Canada with DRL)

bingo?

My lights on my grand cherokee is deem and my inside lights won't go off if my dashboard lights are bright. When I deem my dashboard lights my inside lights can go off


Sounds like your dash light dimmer switch is faulty. It is supposed to allow you to turn off the inside lights and still have the dash lights either bright or dim. Have it checked out and replaced.

2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee shifting problem from 2nd to 3rd


Check the kick down cable. If it sticks the transmission won't shift. I sprayed WD-40 on both the top and bottom connectors , and it worked like a charm. It's alot cheaper them spending 2000 on a new transmission you don't really need.

2000 Jeep Cherokee suddenly looses traction


Sounds like the transmission is slipping. Check the transmission fluid level and top off as needed. If the problem is not severe, an additive such as Lucas transmission additive may help.

Head lights and dashboard lights come on and off


This is usually a sign of the battery wires not connected completely or the ground has become frayed and needs to be replaced.
