Transmission leak help

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo with 62000 miles. Noticed my transmission was leaking. My husband replaced the electrical connector housing for the wiring that goes into the transmission. Seems very common leak for these transmissions. Anyway he refilled the transmission fluid but now the transmission is only staying in 1 gear. The leaking has stopped but so has the shifting.

Any ideas? Maybe need more fluid?

Help

Re: Transmission leak help

First thing I would do is disconnect the battery for 5-10 minutes to clear the transmission computer. Then you'll be able to figure out whether it's a mechanical or electrical/computer issue based on whether the transmission shifts after the battery is reconnected.

Re: Transmission leak help

Not a bad suggestion brent.... I would want to reinspect the connector and make sure it is in, seated and the latch is properly seated.
