Stuck On 3rd Gear

'Sup everyboy? my WK is stuck on 3rd gear. when i shift from Park to Drive it jerks so abruptly it scares my 1yr-old daughter in the back seat, same thing when i move from Drive to Reverse.
So when i shift from Park to Drive instead of having the D, i get a 3. and it wont move even when i hit try to shift the lever left or right for the - and +. Dear JeepFellows, what is my problem here?
God Bless!

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

Check for codes. Could be input/output speed sensor(s).
I think P0700 is the most common code.

5.7Unlimited is just really nice
Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

I would check the codes doing the key trick, it will give you a better idea of what is going on. don't reset the computer just yet by unplugging the battery so you don't lose the codes.

SHIFTER BEZEL !!!!!! (at least that's what I think it is)

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

i also think it is the shifter bezel, it is fooling the transmission into thinking you are in the wrong gear.

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

Insert and turn the ignition key from "Off" to "On" three times, moderately fast and without pausing ("ON" is when the digital odometer displays):
Tip: use the "count to 5" method, where "1" is the first "On":
Off > On > Off > On > Off > On
0 1 2 3 4 5
0 - Insert key (Off)
1 - On
2 - Off
3 - On
4 - Off
5 - On
At the third "On" the odometer display will read "DTC REPORT" and list the codes. If no codes are present the message "Done" will appear.

then lookup the code here......

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

Well I googled the code U1113 and i got two different answers.
U1113 - SCP (J1850) Invalid or Missing Data for Primary I
U1113-LOST A/C PRESSURE MESSAGE for the second one.
Which is the right definition for the code U1113?

Re: Stuck On 3rd Gear

disconnect the negative battery terminl and push on the brake pedal a couple times top release any stored energy. This will reset the pcm. Then give her a try

Have you had your transmission filter changed recently?
