NO 5th or 6th gear

The check engine light came on and the transmission will not go into 5th or 6th gear even if I try shifting manually. Nor will it go into "Eco" mode. I have a 2012 overland with the hemi and it has 45000 miles. I dropped it off at the dealer this a.m. Anyone have an idea of what's wrong?

Don't worry. Transmission went into "limp" mode. I had the same problem. A solenoid probably went out.

Re: NO 5th or 6th gear

I got the car back today. The problem was with the oil control valve and phaser. They replaced both under the 5 year/100,000 mile powertrain warranty. This was my first and hopefully last problem after 45,000 trouble free miles.
