Type, year and miles on the Jeep?

Code P0700 = Trans control malfunction.
Code Uo404 = Invalid data received from control module gear shift. This means Trans Control Sys malfunctioned. I have seen two solutions. Replace the shifter bezel in the jeep (makes the most sense - replace the computer) and replace a few filters in the tranny. I did find that both of these fixes are in TSB's (Technical service bulletin) 21-016-06a and 21-007-06. I would do both actions. I am not sure if either of these are covered by the original warranty 36K / 3 Year or the 7/ 70K drivetrain. 3/36 should cover it.

Not a WK guy but I imagine www.wkjeeps.com could help you out!

Or even lazier, call the dealership parts department and just tell 'em what you need. If the guys half competent he'll give you a number :)

those were the same codes that I was getting before I changed out the shift bezel. Not sure if its the same problem but changing it out has fixed it.

Well, ever since I read the codes the check engine light has not been on anymore. Im fairly certain I didnt clear them. What could this indicate?? Ill still take it to the stealership though.

Okay, I got in there and cleaned the connection. Im assuming this is where its plugged in. The connection looked spotless, but I cleaned it anyway. I guess Ill watch it and see if anything changes.

Observations thus far:
1) Check engine light went off
2) Trasmission not shifting when it should (randomly) between 2-3k rpm
3) Sluggish start from stop. Pressing accelerator doesnt yield expected acceleration.
4) Poor gas mileage

Does this all and the codes fit into it being the shifter bezel?

Re: Scary sounding codes, PLEASE translate and advise!
 
Okay, thanks. Ill start by cleaning the contact board.

Can someone verify that I have the correct part number for this part? I got it off just4jeeps.com and my parts cat. doesnt show one...
