Re: My jeep starts on 3rd gear

Welcome to the garage.
3rd gear is limp mode for the 5-45RFE transmission your jeep has. The transmission controller (part of the PCM) will put the transmission in limp mode when it sees a situation which could harm the transmission. Did you put a scanner on it to check for faults, because there should be some fault stored.
Oh, by the way, you better put you questions under the WK section (05-10 grand cherokee), where a lot more people will see it and can respond.

Re: My jeep starts on 3rd gear

An 'off the shelf' scanner that you can get at most parts stores will not read transmission codes. Take it to the dealer or to someone that has a scanner that can read the transmission codes.

Too many mods to list for each, so let's just say a lot was done over the years.
