Likely you have a shift control module malfunction. Module is probably on the right side fender in the engine compartment. Check to see if you have one (some do and some dont... go figure...I've got a 91 & 95... I have about five different diagrams and NONE apply to my vehicles)

Sometimes you tranny may just be low in which case add fluid. Be sure to check while engine is hot, most likely in park or nuetral. It will say on dipstick. Also if you havent changed the filter you may want to do that, sometimes crud gets built up and it will not circulate well unless hot. If you change the filter, be careful as usually there is not a drain plug and the only way is to drop the pan. If you do go that route I advise buying a drain plug and drill a hole in pan and replace with plug so in the future theres less mess and a whole lot easier job. Hope this helps. Be sure to read directions on drilling hole for plug and be sure its drilled somewhere on the pan that doesnt get in the way of anything underneath.

Check the inline fuse under the glove box for the TCM. Fuse could be blown or have corrosion build up.

Having trouble with the trans (1989 jeep cherokee). bought a new tps (bdw)and it gives me 4.27v input and .36 v output. Any suggestions ?

how many miles is on the trans, what condition is the fluid in (red, brown, black, burnt smell, metallic shavings, etc). could be shift solenoid for 3&4 or the trans could be going bad! if the fluid smells burnt, looks black, milky, or full or metal then the trans needs to replaced, or completely overhauled, all clutch packs, steels, solenoids, etc, and possibly sunshell, and planetary set!! Good luck hope its a simple solenoid and you can just drop the pan, change it out and be done! some trans have vacuum hoses that run shift points and such, but if 1&2 are fine then im thinking vacuum and TPS is fine! and the TPS will vary voltage as the butterfly opens and closes

I have a 1990 jeek cherokee 4.0l automatic, while driving it's always shifting down and then back up and at times it almost feels like the transmission is slipping does any one know what could cause this...

check the tps(throttle position sensor)located on the right front of the throttle body.if its out of adjustment or going bad it will mimic a trans problem.

1991 volvo 740 will shift out of 4th gear at around 100km/hr and wont shift back

This is a standard shift I am presuming if so this usually indicates a bad synchronizer in the transmission. if it is an automatic trans. it is a speed sensor malfuctioning.
