An aftermkt ignition switch fixed my crazy cluster as well. Been 6 months and so many miles. During investigation I had found that I could cause the problem by wiggling the key in the ignition.

Re: Opinion req: OE replacement Bilstein vs SRT8 struts

Re: 2005 WK 5.7 limp mode and stuck in 3rd [3];

I had my trans go into limp mode. After messing with the bezel it went away momentarily. I ended up wiggling the {weatherpac ?} electrical connector at the trans, the 25 pin one, and it was fixed.

Re: Check out this F'ed up trans filter

Oh, and changing the filters didn't fix the leak down of the converter. The TSB is all BS, and I'm sure Chrysler knows it. Any links to the fix of the checkvalve ?
