Re: Jeep won't start...it's in park but the system thinks its not??

You read correctly...I was able to roll my vehicle in P and N (after the manual override) and it would roll forwards and backwards after multiple tries to wiggle the sifter and put in N to start...I was just as confused as you...only way to get the vehicle to stop rolling was the parking brake (I knew something was wrong when I took the parking brake off and rolled forward into the curb stopper; never put my foot on the brake to start the vehicle on such a slight slope)

That makes me think that for whatever reason park is not working is the problem like the trs is not seeing park or neutral. Which is mainly mechanical.

I really cant see the FCM being the cause of this problem, the other problems yes, but not this problem

Re: Jeep won't start...it's in park but the system thinks its not??

That's why I'm here guys...bounce any ideas my way!! I appreciate your input...

How can I access my dealer service history from two different dealers? They are saying they have no record of my jeep shutting down...I had a dealer in Santa Barbara close a couple years ago and I may have taken it to them instead of the dealer in Thousand Oaks (purchased the vehicle there)...I have all records but believe I put them in storage. Can I email jeep? Or...

Re: Jeep won't start...it's in park but the system thinks its not??

jeep.com has an owners site which will allow you to access their service history database. you need your vin to sign up. not all dealers uploaded their work to the site though. all of the work i have had done to my jeep was online as well as a few things from the original owner, but when i bought it i had the dealer replace the pads and rotors before i bought it and that work was not shown. i emailed jeep and they said they only have available what was on the website

Re: Jeep won't start...it's in park but the system thinks its not??

Just wanted to say thanks to all...somehow my shift linkage got disconnected and the dealer failed to tell me that until I drove down to meet face to face and get some answers. Needless to say they tried to scare me into replacing the FCM when there WS actually no issue. Thanks again guys you saved me a lot of time and $$$
