Don't pull the negative terminal off the battery to test the alternator. That was old school and can not be done anymore. It can damage the cars electrical system.It sounds like your battery is junk but you need to run diagnostics on your charging system. If you can't then take it to someone. Companies like Autozone will check your charging system for free but don't jump start it in there parking lot before the test. Either get a new battery or have that one charged if it can be. Most batteries are good for 5 to 7 yrs.

Hi there from what I can see this seems to be a common problem. I found this link to how one guy dealt with the problem. I hope this helps. The thread shows a common problem with some jeeps of this vintage.

2008 Jeep Commander with 5.8l Hemi problems with instrument panel


Have shop run an OHM test on your transmission sensors -- then have them replaced and rerun the OHM test. -- it's more than likely an input speed sensor that is not working properly and telling the jeep to go into "limp mode" hence your speed isn't changing but it can't read the actual speed.
