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

99 dodge durango wont shift into 3rd gear


If it's in limp in mode it won't shift out of 2nd gear. Get the trouble codes read. The solenoid pack is a pretty common failure. But don't just throw parts at it. Get the codes first.

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

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,
