Thumbs up Re: transmission selector lights

hi to all that helped . but the problem is now sorted as was such a simple fix. turn out theres been a slight leak on transmission fluid. but what threw me was i bought a transmission dip stick off ebay and when used at operating temp said fluid was ast right level. but notice when jeep parked on un leave ground took long to fix it self. so i took bullet between teeth and bought some transmission fluid and topped up by the dip stick a lil at as time and bingo problem now go . some time,s it can be so simple. but when one starts reading some off the posts can be thrown of course . but we live and learn . thanks again to all . i miss out on a trip to bourmouth now tony cheers mate for the offer & help

Re: transmission selector lights

Good that you have solved the problem. Still strange though that a too low fluid level would cause the selector lights to be off
Your jeep has the W5J400 transmission, isn´t it? How much fluid did you had to add?

Re: transmission selector lights

Just as a reference here the oil level check procedure for the W5J400 tranny.
The dipstick you are using is specially for this type of tranny?
Be carefull in not overfilling it, because it could give nasty problems lateron.
