As always,
1: check fuses first !
2: scan it next, i bet you there are DTC errors, you are missing.
3: check fluids levels?


my guess is you mean the automatic transmission skips gears.
this is limphome mode,
the transmissions are smarter now, if somethings bad,
it goes to self preservation mode, (same as engine ,same mode)
to avoid $3000 in damage.
scan it (get it scanned, buy the tool, rent it or barrow one)
or get it serviced.

Wont shift down or go into overdrive


I think that the modulator valve has failed. It isn't a tough fix. Get a new one and replace it and you should be okay.

My 2001 jeep grand cherokee wont shift into 4th it only goes to third what would cause the 4th gear to not engage


There are several things that could cause that.
> Replacement transmission not equipped with overdrive
> Overdrive solenoid in replacement transmission defective
> Overdrive control circuits damaged or loose pins or connections.
> Gear shift linkage or cable out of adjustment
> Transmission range sensor malfunction or out of adjustment

Since you have a computer-controlled transmission, it would be better to ask the onboard computer that question....you will probably get a much more definitive answer.

I have a 1999 jeep cherokee that has intermitant transmission problems 1)shifting up it wind out to 2k-3k before shifting 2) at higher speed it feels as if it slips out of overdrive rpm increase but speed...


It will shift out of overdrive upon increasing throttle , pulling hills and so on. Your overdrive probably kicks in around 35 to 45mph and kicks back out as you increase throttle. Electrically controled speed sensor to control the response. Overwise the engine would bog down to a stall. Over drive is just that. It changes the gearing ratio to over drive meaning less then final gear 4 to 1 down to 4 to 3 etc more direct drive ratio to lessen consumtion of fuel with less stress on engine. Have shift speed sensor adjusted. Don't drive in overdrive in city if most driving is under 45mph

Odd shifting 99 jeep grand cherokee


A common problem with most overdrive units.Overdrive should only be used above 40 mph. With the mileage odds are that you need to have transmission looked at professionally.It maybe time to consider rebuilding it.I do not see a trans service of being a benefit.

Jeep erradic in shifting


Check the adjustment on the brake switch. If the brake switch is not seated properly it will engage when hitting bumps and tell the tranny to come out of overdrive.

Jeep Quadratrack does not shift into 4 wheel drive


the quad trac is an alltime 4wheel drive system. it does have a control module that helps transfer the power from front to rear. if it is a 2008 it should be under warranty and you can have it checked out for proper operation
