Re: 2015 JGC Overland 'Service Shifter' light

I know this is an old thread, but I wanted to let y'all know that they fixed the "service shifter" problem with my Jeep. It no longer dings or tells me to service shifter when going around left hand turns.

I was doing the Lemon Law route, and GA law says the dealer gets one more chance to fix the problem. Apparently they called in an expert on the Jeep electrical systems and they found a pinched wire on one of the buses that sends signals to the transmission. When the steering rack moved or hit a bump I guess it was causing the pinched wire to send a faulty signal or something like that.

Anyways its fixed. It would have been difficult to sell otherwise. Now I will either trade in/sell and get a '17 Trailhawk I have on order.

Re: 2015 JGC Overland 'Service Shifter' light

Mr. Plow, thanks for validating my long term strategy: someone, sometime, somewhere is going to find something that seems to fit my experience, and yours does. Pinched wire really fits the data, not just turns but bumps when turning (I think the parallel is how my back acts when I move too quickly when bending and kazaam, pinched nerve every time). I had not thought of invoking lemon law--I've taken mine in twice with same problem...

Re: 2015 JGC Overland 'Service Shifter' light

Yeah I'm pretty sure the dealer would have kept me coming back and changing components here and there until I got sick of it and quit. It seemed silly to use the lemon law for such a minor issue, but it forced them to go "all in" and bring in an expert to fix it. In the end it was a simple fix, just difficult to find and diagnose. I'm happy it was not a potentially serious issue and that it is over with. There are certainly those out there that have had far more frustrating situations, so I consider myself fortunate.
