Everything else works, when i say everything else, wipers, windows, sunroof, satnav etc.

Never has happend again. But would be good to see if others have had this. Found no TSB.

Try using your spare key. I've heard that if a key is not programmed to your specific vehicle, it will start the engine briefly then shut off.

Re: Wk/Wh 2005~ Grand Cherokee Faults And Issues

I have an 06 laredo with the 3.7L, and have had quite a few transmission faults, ie: funky shifting, with the engine light coming on. Does anybody have any thoughts/ideas on this topic??

What codes is it throwing? Mine did the same thing and it turned out to be a bad TCM (which was covered under my 7y/70k warranty) and a Shift Module (which I replaced myself).

Here is a thread with others thoughts:

Truck won't shift out of Park at all.......

Re: Wk/Wh 2005~ Grand Cherokee Faults And Issues

have the dealership reset the tranny adaptives...you may be able to search and find out how to reset it yourself.

Re: Wk/Wh 2005~ Grand Cherokee Faults And Issues

are the dealer replaced MAP sensor, and the updated throttle pedal items that are covered under warranty due to the fact they are faulty as OEM?

Does it thump going from reverse to drive? a fairly common issue is the front differential mount bushings, and they can cause a clunk or thunk as your gear changes happen. This may not be your issue, but it is very common.

The "hot" part worries me...... do you mean it's hotter than normal? are you familiar with normal?
