The computer will not allow the vehicle to start because transmission is overheating and it will damage it.

    Dead Battery, same thing happened to me. Battery totally gone would not take a charge except from the tow-trucks equipment. New battery = no problem

My left side tail light doesn't work after changing the lamp. Jeep 2007 - Commander

it worked before the change out?
there are 3 things that are first. on advance electronics, cars. like this. 2007 is 1st year, of wild complexity.
  1. check fuses first. MIP fuse #8,9,10 (8 is left) check that?
  2. check action of park relay
  3. check for trailer wiring hacks (do you have factory hitch option?)
  4. and scan the PCM , do you see any park fail DTCs'
DTCs are system errors.
that is first.
next if not solved, we look in the FSM for that chapter, and the schematics, to see how its is structured. (varies by year, car)

FSM JEEP XK 2007 (book)
factory service manual.

left side rear tail (park) (tail is old name , car has many park lamps now , not just 1 or 2 tails like in the old days.
so it park and the relay of same name.
there are front parking lights too... do those all work>?

my guess, is you didnt check fuses first.
am i right?
fuse 8 is blown?
but that takes out front left park
and left side marker (park ) lamps too.
so did you look at all left park lights first>?

i bet not, if im wrong then you do have wiring errors.
or the new lamp from china is shorted inside, (common)
try one more lamp , like from GE or Philips.

I went to start my 2008 jeep commander and all these different system errors popped please??

Would really like to help but iam clueless here as well,if i had motor in front of me and threatened it with my magic hammer then i might have a better idea ,reading your description over and over i think it may be a sensor on the auto box ?could be a wire off touching earth or a faulty temp sensor making it think its overheating causing it to go into limp mode or just shut down mode .No idea exactly where this sensor could be as all our motors are manual here in europe ,well 99% anyway

How do you service park assist system on a grand cherokee?

I got a 2007 jeep grand cherokee diesel and at times the service park assist will flash and the engine light will come on. a box forms around the gears on the display and it feels like it trannys slipping and its rough out of 1st gear. if you throw it in neutral then back to drive everything is fine again. After hours of research i found that you have to get your computer flashed. It if commom for many people and the dealership wont know what your talking about. so you have to lets them know!!!! else they have no clue

What does "service park assist system" mean on my 2008 jeep?

The park assist system detects objects 59 inches or less in back of your vehicle, to warn u so u don't strike the object. I'm guessing that since the service park assist system comes on in the ice and snow, the monitor is detecting something (ice and snow covering the sensor). If u clean off the snow and ice, the message should shut off.

2006 Commander won't shift

yes shifter software is the problem.. depending on the hardware version you may just need a software update ... as for the no start always try to disconnect the battery and reconnect it before spending money once its out of warranty.. you would be amazed how much that can fix buy doing that

Is the hand brake working properly because if the rubber and springs used to brake the rear wheels is loose, the security assist system goes off and usually a bell rings and what not.
