Re: Stuck in first gear

the TIPM?? not the PCM?

I may be wrong.. but I didnt think the TIPM had anything to do with the trans?

I found this elsewhere

1. Check the fluid level and condition and if good, go to No. 2.
2. Insure the PCM/TCM has the latest CALID flash files installed and the battery is in top notch condition. If it still malfunctions, go to No. 3.
3. Drop the pan and check/change the filters IF the main filter is split. Also check for debris in the pan. If nothing obvious is found, go to No. 4.
4. Change the solenoid pack if everything above was OK. Also change both filters and add ~7-8 quarts of ATF+4 (use no substitutes) transmission fluid.

Re: Stuck in first gear

Thanks, this is good info. Yes, the dealer told me they replaced the TIPM Module, not PCM. They said they also checked the fluids. I'll update you on what I find out next week.

Re: Stuck in first gear

Dealership replaced PCM Module. Tests showed PCM had an internal short circuit. Also drained and replaced oil, transmission fluid, and coolant. Problem is resolved for now, 2 days without incident.

Re: Stuck in first gear

It seemed looser and less traction before because it was always in 4th, now it is back to the roar and has more traction. I blame the fluids being off and the PCM short circuit. They also said the trans fluid smelled burnt. But it only has 52,000 miles. I pray it doesn't go into limp again. Chrysler covered the PCM with deductible credits at dealer. I paid the fluids.

Back to limp mode today. Accelerating out of a stop it slipped into 4th and now won't go into drive out of park only 4th gear. CEL is back on again as well. Ready to trade in this lemon.

If anyone sees a 2011 Overland in the sale lot, RUN, do not walk. Keep walking.

Re: Stuck in first gear

CEL went off after engine turned off when I dropped off car at dealer and dealer refuses to replace solenoid even though there's a stored error code because there isn't an active error code from the car automatically going into 4th when shifted into drive. So I took it to another dealer and paid $700 to put in new solenoid. Warning--If your car goes into limp mode leaving running at the dealer or you loose the active code. If it fails again I'm trading for a Lexus SUV. I've given up on Jeep.
