My 2014 Cherokee Lmt 4 cyl 9 speed transmission doesn't work the way I THINK IT should. Maybe I could get some expert advice from you guys.
When I attempt to shift manually by pulling the gear shift lever toward me, it seems that the gear I select is only a suggestion to the transmission computer module. It shifts pretty much whenever and into whatever gear it wants to.
I can't really override the computer.
Also, it seems the transmission NEVER goes into 9th gear.
I'll be running 75 on flat highway in auto. When I put the lever into manual, it usually reads 7th or maybe 8th, but usually 7th. I think it should EASILY be in 9th.
I manually shift it into 9th and it reads 9 on the dash. No change in RPM's But when I push the lever to auto, then immediately pull it back into manual, the dash then reads 7 or 8. Never 9.
Anyone else experience this?
As I said, my gear selection just seems to be a suggestion to the computer.
