Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

Hi , My 2005 GC Laredo 4wd was just at the Dlr for a misfire , they fixed this (by changing out a few O2 sensors) but also told me i'm getting codes for my shifter module. At $1200 i told em' i'd pass.

I found the TSB and it shows part # 68004143AC. I found one online but my question is can i use this part instead of the higher priced AF suffixed part? Anyone know? Thanks

I was thinking it was for the t-case switch if so I googled the part # 68004144AF and nothing on the web meaning stealership might be my best bet ...

Looks like the connector for the transfer case selector switch.

Thumbs up Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

Thanks Randall. I was going to follow the TSB and pull out the whole console. Instead, thanks to your step by step, I changed it out in 10 minutes, well 15 if you add in washing the trim before putting it back on. I also got the part from JustForJeeps at a great price, and since I am close, got it the next day with standard ground shipping. I took apart the old one just for kicks, and there was not nearly as much tracking between the contacts as some pics I saw on the web. Mine started acting up around 40K miles. The old one I took out was the same Cherry as the new one, but a different batch number. The old one was made 7/12/06.

I have a small shop and I sell and install snow plows, and the web is the best resource for finding info fast, no matter what part of a vehicle you are working on, and Forums typically have the best info. Like I said, if I followed that TSB I would have pulled the console for nothing.

Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

Well I thought all was good. My Wife just stopped by the shop, she was here for 1/2 hour or so. She went to leave, and the Jeep would not start. Said she saw "Trans Over Temp" on the display for a second. I grabbed the scanner, and no codes. All the dash lights come on, but when you turn the key, nothing. Told her I was going to grab the jump box and see if that made a difference, and the Jeep started. This happened a few times before I changed the bezel, but I thought the problems were tied together. One time this happened, she wasn't even touching the key, but had it in the ON position, and the Jeep cranked and started. THAT scared her (and me) and that is when I ordered the bezel.

Trans Over Temp seems to be a common problem, all over the web, with no real answers.

Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

I dont think you can buy just that little part. Your gonna have to buy the entire assembly. Place a want to buy ad here or look on www.car-part.com. I believe boniomario found an entire assembly for $100 on car-part

Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

Alban I found that on car-part.com for $100 like Scott mentioned ... that whole piece comes attached to the top part of the shifter bezel so you'll have to buy that as a whole unit

Re: HOW TO: Change out PRND Bezel/Gear Shift

For 2005-08 Grand Cherokee Auto Transmission.

I had my blinds disconnect from my shift stick on my shift assembly. I perused through the internet and found very little to help out.

I called the dealer and all you can do is buy the ENTIRE shift assembly from Chrysler/Jeep- which in my area is $700. I saw it online for just under $500, but that is silly to pay for a broken piece of plastic.

Also note there is a service bulletin 21-016-06 REV. A that informs dealerships to NOT replace the entire assembly, but to replace just the bezel... consider that ignored by dealerships in 2010 and beyond.

Anyway- decided to make this post to help people that may have the same issue as me in the days to come- should become more numerous in the days to come. First reference : First read the bulletin referenced above. It is useful for disassembling the assembly: http://www.xkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_xk_2101606a.pdf

OK- now if you are like me your blinds have broke on the little piece of plastic that surrounds the shift stick- why it is so thin beats me! I tried super gluing it but it didn't hold.

Actually- let me back up. If you are having the limp PRND issue that is common with these jeeps- grab some isopropyl alcohol and swab the circutboard... this definitely helps...

Back to getting the blinds to stay together. So I figured something weaved or elastic needed to bond and spread the force of shifting. What else? Our good friend Duck Tape. I beaded the entire area under the plastic piece and the first few "ribs" of the underside of the blinds, and laid down the tape. Then I cut out the area for the shift stick to move left to right in the housing.

Installed everything and Pow- works better than ever... I did buy it used, but still- managed a $700 part fix for 1.79 (superglue) and some duct tape.

I hope someone else finds this useful.
