Means that you have a gearbox problem and most probably you are in limp mode. You need to have it checked by a proffessional

2003 2.7 grand Cherokee holds in low gear when cold it's an auto box


2.7? diesel, the engine we dont have,, in USA.
Turbo diesel;?
so what up, ELABORATE please.
WJ JEEP is a USA jeep, in Europe its a WG, jeep, and runs different engines and trans,
yet another post with no country, like most here, and FAILED.
what does holds in low gear mean.?
try to know that engine power and a/t shift points are complex.
means, tell what works and not, pretend the helper is blind
and has no hands nor legs. bingo.?

now my wild guess, based off 2 words.
hold and lowgear.
i guess you are saying the engine runs perfectly with full power.
but the transmission will not auto up shift from 1st gear to 2nd,
is this correct?
if yes,
  1. check transmission fluid levels. do not overfill it, or guess.
  2. check fuses, we test them.
  3. if the trans , fails, now, the Diesel has a special version of the transmission, not petrol box. and most have an external TCM controller, unlike ours, totally. but it must be SCANNED.
  4. or you will never know why failing !
  5. The scans will show errors, telling you why the TCM tranny brain, can not shift, (sensors errors? comm errors/ many...)
  6. there you go, there is more, but illl stop here, the service manual tells you in clear English , all on car checks for tranny. if read.

my WG book, shows even Diesel shift'er module, is unique
and can not communicate, and fail.
and the TCM is controlling all this.

Learn to scan all modern cars first (means 96'+)
and save time, and money.
guessing will not work. sorry.

if you had scanned it and posted errors we could wax 10x more savvy, for sure.
  1. buy a scanner use it. (save big money for life of car)
  2. Get it scanned. (all shops can)
  3. call mobile car service, and they scan it?
  4. tow car to any shop they scan it.
our cars show P07xx codes. for trans or P17xx.
in Europe they have EOBD, (simular to our OBD2, we invented)
so that is your tool, that works. (wild guessing country I am)

here is one example
P1242-CAN BUS MESSAGE MISSING FROM TCM
Test
P07xx
P17xx
P27xx , are all trans errors, lots

this means the PCm can not talk to the TCM box.
if it cant, the the PCm can not send engine load data to it.
or worse.
service manual, WG , chapter 21, covers all this.

I have had a machine put on my Citroen C4 grand Picasso and it's come up with error codes P0925 & P0919 saying gear shift error, does this mean I need a new gear box?


code p 0919 refers to gear shift position control===causes wiring--- poor connections ---ECM---TCM
code p 0925 refers to gear shift reverse actuator --circuit /range performance ===causes --wiring---poor connection---gear shift reverse actuator---ECM---TCM
code p 1351 refers to IDM input circuit malfunction---ignition coil control , high voltage
there is nothing there to indicate a new transmission is required as the TCM ( transmission control module ) and reverse actuator or normally add on units and are separate to the box main
the wiring is always suspect as it hardens and breaks or the connections get corroded and do not pass power properly
I would at this stage not consider a new transmission and if it is suggested , I would get a second opinion from an accredit auto transmission specialist shop with experience on your vehicle

Reversing lights not working i have checked all fuses and bulbs all ok what do i do next.


well im no auto electrician , but on most of the cars i have owned , on the manual gear box they had a switch which activated reversing lights , when reverse selected , dont know about an automatic transmission ,maybe if you had a look on the gear box for a switch , means getting under car though..

Problems selecting 1st gear peugeot 106 1.1 zest


If the clutch is a problem you will have difficulty selecting 1st only as the gears would be spinning from the engine revs.. I would say that the front input shaft (clutch shaft) bearing is failing allowing miss alignment of the synchros and not allowing proper engagement of the gears synchro rings. It means removal and repair to the gear box so the clutch can be inspected while the box is out.

Car will not drive forward


As it says, the body computer finds a problem with the gearbox. Could be an electrical problem or mechanical problem in the transmission.
A tech would scan the body computer for trouble codes to know where to start looking. This may require a dealer scanner.
