Jeep Problem Stuck in 3rd gear!
My jeep grand cherokee limited 2005 gear is stuck on 3rd. Everytime i change the gear from plus to minus it never changes except from 3rd. Also the acceleration is week and when i went on full stop, when i let go the brakes it doesnt move, i have to press the gas for it to move.

I went to a local mechanic and said that the automatic gear box is damaged or it just need to be cleaned. If its damaged it would be expensive to replace it.

I dont actually know what to do. can you guys give me anyideas please. thanks

Are there any lights on the dash
Yellow squiglies (ESP off/dis-engaged)
Red lightning bolt (Throttle body issue)

If yes it is in limp mode...turn engine off and restart.

If no are there any engine codes?

This is what happened when our tranny went out after having the GC for only a week (brand new!!) - was due to a faulty fluid pump. Chrysler put in a brand new crate tranny to replace it.

Doesn't sound good for you...
