Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
If you still have any warranty on the vehicle, bring it back to the dealer and have them go over it again. If not, or if you don't like the dealer you are working with, bring it to a good transmission shop
(check references...some trans shops are not reliable).
As I mentioned before, transmissions and their control systems are not user friendly items and really need a pro to diagnose properly.
The problem you are having can have many causes spanning internal pressure loss or mis-direction to an external control malfunctioning. A good shop will put a "flight recorder" scanner on the unit and run it to see where the problem is and also knows that certain readings can be misleading but also knows what causes those readings.
Most general repair shops do not have the equipment or expertise to do that and many dealers would rather just replace a unit with a factory rebuild rather than invest the time involved and expense of hiring a transmission specialist to do rebuild work.
I went to school to learn automatic transmissions but in running large shops, the only units I ever bothered with were my own...i used that info to deal intelligently with the outsource shops I used. That way, I managed to provide my customers with only the best work, preserving my reputation.
After you have a diagnosis done, you have any questions, ask and I'll help if I can!!!
