Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

2005 Grand in limp mode

Riding my 2005 5.7 hemi GC Limited today. Hit a bump in the road and felt it shift into 3rd. Now it is in limp mode, 3rd gear only. I don't know if the bump caused it or if it was a coincidence. After discovering it in limp mode a bit later, I definitely recal feeling it shift when I hit the bump. Need to get to an auto parts store and get the code read. The engine check light is on already due to a check gas cap issue.

thanks for any ideas.....

Without a dtc to help,the only thing you can do is check all the connections at the transmission,and unhook the battery for awhile or get check code cleared and see if it reapperars

The transmission is going into limp mode. You need a special scan tool capable of communicating with the transmission control module in order to find out what is causing the problem

I have a 1999 grand cherokee. The check engine light came on with a P1768 code. If I keep the trans in the "drive" position and start off, it feels like the transmission is in 3rd gear. No...


Hi, Your like your jeep is in limp in mode, this is to keep you from burning up transmission and to get you some were off the road, the p1768 code means A/T Transmission Relay Output Always Off. This should be checked out by your local shop or dealer. but you should make sure that the fluid level is correct, if to low there is not enough fluid pressure for the solenoid's to engage the relays. Hope this can help you out. If i can help you anymore fell free to re post.
Thanks dodge tec

4L 60E - 2001 k1500 will not shift into 3-4. Oil is not burn't and stifts great into1-2


  • No 3rd or 4th gear: “3-4” clutches are worn out. R&R. The car is safe to drive (in 2) until you can get it fixed.
  • Trans shifts into gear harshly, car feels sluggish off the line, No 1st, 4th or TCC lockup available, Manual 2nd, 3rd and Reverse are only available gears, CEL is on: Transmission is either in limp-home mode or has lost electrical power. If there are lots of error codes in the PCM, check the under hood fuse that powers the transmission, and if it pops again, look for a short in that circuit like an O2 sensor harness touching exhaust. Otherwise, check PCM codes for a particular fault in the transmission causing the PCM to put it in limp-home mode.
  • No 1st or 4th available; trans shifts 2nd to 3rd by itself in D or OD and locks the converter : Shift A solenoid failed. Easy fix in the pan. Or a wiring problem from PCM to trans.. or PCM.
Check to see if your transmission is in the limp mode, which would only give you 2nd, 3rd and reverse gears. No 1st or 4th gear.

95 grand cherokee 4.0 4wd w/ auto trans. starts in 3rd gear, manually shifting to 1st only gives 2nd gear, won't shift down on own, won't go to OD & OD selector button does nothing, no light, no shift,...


it sounds like it is in limp in mode. try disconnecting the battery for ten minutes and reconnecting. this will reset the pcm and clear the fault codes. if it was just some sort of fluke if should be ok, if there is a problem it will return to limp in mode. if it wasn't acting up beforehand, it's more than likely an electrical, or computer problem, not a mechanical issue,
