With quite a lot of potential problems,the only thing that you can check at home is the trans fluid level.Motor warm(10 mins running)Go through all the gears and finish in neutral.Check the fluid levels.You will probably have done this buy now anyway,but apart from a visual insp.not a lot else.Smell the fluid and compare to some new fluid.Does it smell 'burnt'.Maybe a blocked trans filter.Hope this helps

Have a '93 Jeep Grand Cherokee, 4WD, 5.2L, 8 cyl, automatic that's not shifting. Transmission fluid looks good, no burnt smell, no metal bits in fluid, no grinding gears. Won't shift til you...

If the transmission will not go into gear or has trouble finding gears and has the proper amount of fluid, the shifting linkage could be bent or misaligned, especially on automatic models. The linkage can be found on the driver side of the transmission, toward the top of the unit. Inspect it to make sure the components aren't bent or broken and have someone shift the Grand Cherokee while you watch from underneath. Most times, only minor adjustments are necessary.
Also, check Torque Converter and scanned the TCM (Trans Control Module) to know if some fault code is stored there.

The cherokee wont switch gears. Once you put the car on drive and take off it won't switch gears. It stays stuck on the first gear.

did you check for engine or transmission codes? most large auto part stores will do for free call a few and find one who will and they can get codes and give you and idea usually
