2K5 jeep grand cherokee

Well My check engine light has flashed a few times and I noticed that my truck wasn't shifting properly so I took it in today and they CHARGED me $100 to tell me that My transmission Control Module is going bad? Anybody ever experienced this? Dealership told me about 1600 for everything? IMO I think that's high but since my warranty wont cover it I guess Ill have to do it..

Any other Options?

Re: 2K5 jeep grand cherokee

Get a second opinion from a different shop, if you know one. Don't show the second shop your estimate of course

Re: 2K5 jeep grand cherokee

Second opinion. Try a transmission shop maybe.

Are you PB8?

Re: 2K5 jeep grand cherokee

I can't see how the TCM is going to cost you $1600. Ive read people in WK's replacing theirs for $300 - $500?

Like I said, I just read online of people having theirs replaced. With a quick google search I came up with this but I don't know if that's exactly what you need...

Re: 2K5 jeep grand cherokee

Probably paint color is Deep Beryl Green. LIKE ME!! (who knows what color is will be today!)


And as far as selling your jeep "while you still can."
I have had no major problems with mine in the 2.5yrs i've had it. 95K miles, and counting. (except for the cluster lights going out, but shit happens. and LXharness is a vender who fixes the problem with LEDs)

That is why I got the extended warranty with my Jeep, and it has saved me several thousands already. Jeep was just recently ranked as the 2nd to last in initial quality out of all automakers in the latest 2011 JD Power and assoc. ranking. If you do want a problem free vehicle, get a Lincoln, Lexus, or Honda, but not a Jeep. The Wrangler unlimited is also the slowest vehicle on the market, at an unbelievable 11.8 sec. from 0-60 and 18 sec. 1/4 mile. The 2012 will have the 3.7 but I drove a new 2011 GC with one and it felt like a total dog compared to my hemi.
