Possible Shifter Issue

Hello,

Lately I've noticed the shifter hasn't been cooperating with me. Sometimes when I am parking in a parking spot, I go to shift into Park from Drive and it will not let me shift straight into Park. It makes me shift up one by one into Neutral, than Reverse and then finally into Park. Has anyone else had this issue?

Thanks.

Re: Possible Shifter Issue

When going from D to P, try holding the shifter forward until you actually see it going into P on the gear indicator. It can be finicky sometimes if you do it quickly.

Re: Possible Shifter Issue

I've had this problem driving them at work. We all do. Your brain and limbs work too fast for the Jeep. You'd think this would never happen, but like MDBones said, just slow down and confirm with the gauge cluster.

The question is, will this be over sooner rather than later?

Re: Possible Shifter Issue

I usually hold it for a few seconds so it can go into park but with the issue I'm having it locks the shifter so I can't move it all the way up into park.

Yeah I almost always hold the shifter to make sure its in the right gear. I once thought it was in park and it was in reverse and almost backed into a pole, which is why I make sure its in the correct gear but that isn't the issue I am having. The shifter locks and doesn't allow me to shift it all the way upwards to put it into park.

LOL... a Ram rotary dial shifter? I hope not.

Yeah I know the issue you're having. I swear, you're just going WAY too fast.

Believe me, I've done it. Multiple times. I hate it more than you do, trust me.

Re: Possible Shifter Issue

That's one thing I'm not looking forward to. Since last October I've been back to shifting as I did pre 3/13.

Re: Possible Shifter Issue

What's the difference in shifters, Scott? I'm not familiar with what's used in the Chargers/Challengers.

Found it.

A new performance-inspired electronic shifter provides a smooth transfer between gears with short throws and low shift effort. It functions like a traditional shifter, giving the driver visual and physical feedback of gear position.
