Ratio codes generally indicate a pressure loss & slipping which the computer reads as a gear ratio problem. Likely you need a rebuild.

SOURCE: 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission or transfer case

As I said, trans fluid keeps the internal components "alive"... Low fluid level can cause burning of internal clutches, premature hardening of seals (essential to proper transmission of fluid pressure) as well as lubrication of necessary gear components such as planetary gear set (which can cause whine etc. which you now have) All of these components rely upon a constant flow of fluid for both cooling and lubrication. Depending upon how low and how long these parts had interrupted fluid flow, directly influences how much damage was done. I take no joy in telling you that you may have damaged your unit, I'd be far happier if I could give you a quick, inexpensive fix. But based upon what you have said, If I was working hands-on with this problem, I would make the recommendation I've already made. There are pressure tests etc that can be done at a transmission shop to verify to some degree of certainty what is going on within your unit. Hopefully they may find something other than what I've said. At this point though, it is wise to have it checked out by a professional, before you become stranded at a time when you can least afford to be.

Sounds Like your trany went into defalt mode or a"LIMP mode" it's FFM is set to save the trany is somehting failed, and that can be anything from a shorted gorund to the PCM/TCM or as bad as a failed clutch pistion. This isn't an esay fix. Best bet is to look at your AFT fluid id it has sparkaly particles you should start looking for a replacement trany. if your fluid looks fine the only option is to go to a delare b/c they have the tool to talk to the PCM/TCM via computer, and thus they can tell you more.

I had the same problem with mine. Since the transmission is aluminum it has to warm up. My solution was a new trans, which was replaced under warranty.

  • does the FSM stall test pass? in 1st.? and reverse?
  • if stall fails, slips , then tranny bad. if not its really stuck in 1st gear.
The TCM commads the gear change, there is no valve body brain.

if the TCM sees bad inputs it will tell you, SCAN IT.

My 2006 2500 dodge ram is having shift problems in 2nd gear only. The truck has a Cummins and an auto tranny. It holds in first too long, then when it shifts to 2nd, sometimes it goes back to first then...


I had the same problem, after 26k miles and replacing the computer, and many other parts on the truck transmission they replaced the tranny....same problem. In short, and another tranny they found small alum shavings in the tranny cooling system...they then replaced all lines, coolent and tranny radiator (cooler )with another new tranny....problem solved. It was the tiny metal shavings in the tranny cooling system that continued to circulate the system.

Make sure when you are shifting your transfer case in and out of 4wd that your tranny is in the neutral position. This allows all the gears to slow down to synchronize. Try that and if doesn't work write another post and I will reply, Roger
