post 2 times, why?
why not say, this,
my shift lever shows.
PRNDL (this is called and automatic)
drive is dead, low is dead, Reverse works. only.
in drive its reverse,
in low its reverse.
this can be a simple bad ,dead shift cable.
all it takes is looking at end of cable to find this truth, 2 persons, 1 shifts, other LOOKS. bingo.
or not. if not the cable the box is toast.

or
this is called a manual transmission. a stick.

1997 jeep cherokee ,when it gets hot and you turn ignition off.once restarted will only drive in 1st gear


so you are saying, A/T transmission problems.
do elaborate, its a complex system there.
does reverse work ok.
did you check fuses first.
then check AFT fluid levels using oper guide method not guessing?
scan it yet, using any cheap scan tool (you or any shop)
if you see p07xx errors (DTC) those are real, post em.
last is a full flush and filter. inside,

the transmisson may be electronically shifted, like the AW4 is,
you never stated what trans is there, and that does matter.
if inputs to the TCM are wrong it will not shift at all.

Transmission


Check your rear emergency brakes. A brake shoe pin could have broke and the shoe locks up in 1 direction. but not the other. The other problem you mentioned could happen, but if it is in reverse the trans shifted.

HI, It may seem obvious, but sometimes overlooked.... have you checked the oil level, as low oil can cause some strange things to happen! My 96 4 liter would be reluctant to move sometimes, but after I topped it up, it has been fine.

Hard to shft from 2wd to4wd on 1997 jeep grand che larado


Check fluid in transfer case, make sure it's full and clean. Lube all external linkage and make sure it's adjusted correctly. Chances are there's a bit of wear in t-case components. When this happens sometimes rolling shifts are easier on unit.

Do you have back up lights in reverse? If not you probably have a bad NSS. Go here for inspection/cleaning and you should be good to go.
