I should have it back tonight. They can't guarantee that it's fixed, but they are hopeful. I'll just drive it and if the problem persists, it's going back to the dealer. I love my WK2, so I just want it running right. I'll keep this thread posted with results.
Shifter/Brake interlock switch.

Re: 2012 WK2 shifter stuck in Drive

Yeah, but the thing gets stuck in drive for the OP. I think the ignition and brake interlocks only affect getting out of park/neutral, not into. Sure looks like something hanging up in the shifter, cable, or transmission. Perhaps a rock/debris caught up near where the transmission linkage enters the tranny. Since they already replaced the shifter, the tranny linkage (internal) is the next suspect.
This is a fairly common transmission, wonder if something like this has ever been reported on other forums.

Re: 2012 WK2 shifter stuck in Drive

I didn't get the Jeep back tonight. They decided to keep it for one more day ro see if it's resolved, they also said there was something else they weren't happy with. More details as I get them...

I got it back the next day, and haven't had any problems since. They replaced the transmission valve body solenoid and that seems to have resolved the shifter issue.

Re: 2012 WK2 shifter stuck in Drive

If you want to shut the engine down whilst still in gear hold the start button down for 2 seconds and it will shutdown.

I just tried it a few times, I even held it down for 10 seconds and it does not work on my Jeep. The information center says "Vehicle Not in Park".

No problems in over a year. I'd say they fixed it.

What's super neat is when a 2014 electronic shifter refuses to come out of Drive, and the engine refuses to shut off when in gear.

Good luck to 2014 owners when they inevitably experience this- been there and done that.
