Question about Jeep Grand Cherokee
A bad crankshaft position, a bad Throttle Position Sensor (TPS), or a bad input speed sensor (located on the left side of the transmission) can cause the overdrive to not work. Generally I see the TPS fixing the problem. You should first try to get the trouble codes off of this jeep as they can help narrow down which sensor might be failing. The method to getting the codes is below. Otherwise replacing each one, one by one is what you might end up doing. Let me know how this turns out.
To get codes out of the Transmission Control Module (TCM). The lamp in the Overdrive OFF switch is used to signal the various flash codes. To view flash codes, proceed as follows:

HI. i recommend replacing the overdrive relay and OD switch on the shifter as well. these are the most overlooked problem areas. The overdrive circuit is controlled by the engine temperature sensor, as well, to prevent it from going into overdrive when the engine is cold. If the sensor is faulty, it will not allow your transmission to shift into overdrive. Also, check the thermostat, if it is stuck open, it will not allow the engine to come up to normal temperature and the transmission will not shift into overdrive.
Most common issue will be the OD switch on he shifter but, check all the above to cover all areas.

Thanks for using FixYa. It could be the gear is weak or bearing is out, spacer not working right well check your clutch might not be working right either. It could also be due to a couple things--
1) Low oil level in the overdrive- low oil means that the pump sucks air, looses pressure, and od jumps out. 2) Another thing is the solonoid. Bad o-rings that seal the solonoid can allow oil to bypass the pressure side of the system where it is really needed. The solonoid could be week, and that leads to obvious problems.
Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.
