1997 Jeep Cherokee no backup lites wont start wont go into 4th gear driving ...


 1997 probaly 1998 too their option selction would not let me post for a 1997 Jeep would not shift into 4th gear which is overdrive I believe, also check engine light will come on and then it will not shift. Sometimes it will not start and no back up lights. OK this fix is is easy well I think it is. get yourself an ACTRON engine analyzer it shows any codes and clears them it is around 100.00 buck or take it some where and have the code failure cleared after you fix it. On the transmissin is a switch housing that in it is the backup lights switch and this switch lets the computer lnow which speed you have selected 1st 2nd third or Drive. if the computer cannot see this switch the engine will not start  and if you are driveing the CHECK ENGINE lite comes on and you  will notice it will not shift out of 3rd into overdirve or 4th gear. first unhook the negative battery terminal then remove the switch from the transmissin and open up the housing and clean and lube the switch contacts reinstall the housing line up the rod going thru the transmission check it for operat watch the backup lights and have the code cleared out using you code reader or at a friendly parrts store or seervice staion best to have one of these readers any way they are worth their weight in gold. This repair saved me about 400 bucks doing it myself the switch is overpriced it is around 330 bucks. Well if have have these symptoms I would say this is the fix!!

1999 mitsubishi eclipse automatic transmission wont shift into 4th gear.


First off.. If you have a check engine light on, Find someone with an OBD2 READER or buy one yourself(very good tool to have) and that will give you the code(s) to your problem..

If not.. Check ALL your fuses..

If those are good and you DO NOT have a sealed tranny.. Check your fluid..

If all the above check out good.. It's gonna be 1 of 2 things..

1. Your overdrive is either turned off and/or damaged.. (Over drive on: uses all 4 gears/Over drive off: uses only 3 gears)

2. Your shift silonoid pack is damaged, which normally when this happens your car goes into a thing called "dummy mode" and keeps the tranny ONLY in 2nd gear..

Now assuming your car shifts into every other gear just fine.. And the fact that normally reverse is the first gear to go out.. I'm gonna say it's your overdrive or a relay that runs with your overdrive..

Let me know what happens or if you have anymore questions..

2000 toyota echo, transmission won't shift to 4th


First thing to do is check the fluid level if that ok you may want to think about having the transmission filter and fluid changed, there are other possibilities but check these first

E40d trans will not shift into 3rd or 4th gear, only rev. 1+2


check or replace your thottle position sensor tps that trans needs to know where the throttle is to shift if it is bad it will do as you say wont shift to third
another telltale is it will act like it goes into lockup when shifting into reverse and stall the engine
