Car won't shift from Park to Reverse

Started 4 days ago... Went outside to put the car in the garage. Parked outside of it to do some misc work inside before putting the car back in. Anyways, started the car, put it into reverse but noticed it was back in park. Tried to put it back in reverse a few more times and it still went back to park. Tried turning the car off/on a few times but no luck. Eventually I just put the car into neutral to push the car back a few feet and then get the car into drive to put it in the garage.

Next morning, went to remote start the car but it failed. Same issues were happening. Turning it off/on actually corrected it this time but now the Check Engine light was on.

This has been a constant issue for a few days now. Anyone else experience this?

Re: Car won't shift from Park to Reverse

This happened to me about a year ago when my 2014 V6 had about 9k miles. It finally went into gear and check engine light came on. By the time I got it to the dealer the check engine light was off and it was going into gear normally. The second time it happened, I left it at the dealer, they called in Jeep technical support and concluded the transmission failed. They replaced the transmission and it has been flawless since then. It has about 24k miles now.
