This actually happend to me this morning, but I had some other things follow that. My MIL came on (engine looking symbol on your display panel), then my screen showed that I was apparently in P, R, N & D all at the same time. I would give it gas and it would go about 10mph and then jump up to about 30mph. It jerked etc. I had to stop 3 times on my way to work, never turned the vehicle off just put it in park. Every time I got back in to drive it, ti did it again. I parked it until lunch. At lunch it did not jerk, but my MIL was still on.

Gosh Paulad, only a loose transmission wire? That's an easy fix (once you ID the problem). But, what about the flack that has caused Chrysler-Jeep to redesign the shift assembly? Maybe they are wrong and there is nothing wrong with it. Just a loose transmission wire! I will have to revisit my dealer with this new information.
Thanks much for the insight. I will let everyone know what happens.

yeah I thought mine was going to be something major--but they found it right away--I haven't had problems with my shifter

#950 of 964 Window control problem
Jul 16, 2008 (3:11 pm)
I have an '06 GC SRT8 and just love it!
It has 35k miles and only problem I have had was to replace brake pads and rotors (didnt love that!) at 26k until the other day.
When I started the engine, it seemed like the battery was low. Sure enough it tested weak, so I replaced it. No starting problems now.
However, the driver window, which was down when the battery was changed will not stay up. It will go up, then come down half way. Only way to keep it closed is to hold the button for a few seconds after it goes up.
Any suggestions on how to reset it ?
Oh, I also experienced that problem of the engine power dropping (dying ?) for a few seconds a few times. That was last year and it seems to have gone away by itself.
Anybody have any suggestions for the window beside call the dealer ?
#951 of 964 Hesitation at slow speed
Nov 14, 2008 (1:04 am)
Well, I also had that hesitation problem a few times. Once, it almost caused a problem when it happened as I was pulling into traffic, luckily nobody hit me. Took it to the dealer & they replaced a faulty electronic shifter switch. Seems it was sending a false signal to the tranny. No problems after that. The dealer was aware of the problem from their service bulletins. Also had a metal spike in my L/R tire, it had to be replaced ($362). The dealer was unaware about the "Road Hazard" policy on the RUNFLAT tires. After a call to "GoodYear" in Akron they notified the dealer to fill out the pro-rating papers which were sent to the dealer. There should be some money returned to me, because I had only 9,000 mi. on the tire.
#952 of 964 A few problems
Nov 20, 2008 (9:19 pm)
I have an 07 srt-8 and i have had a problem with it not letting me accelerate over about 10 miles and while it doing this the park assist warning light was up and the gears where all outlined. It seems to be a common problem, I was just wondering if anyone who had this problem was not able to get it fixed because now this is the 4th time I have had my truck at jeep and they keep telling me its fine.
However last night the check engine light came on after I felt the car just about stall. Now they are finally seeing a problem. Also when I turn off my esp there seems to be a clunking and or grinding noise coming from under the truck t slow speeds and while stopping when I turn the esp back on its fine. Has anyone esle had this problem?

I had the same stalling problem --it was a loose tranny wire--the fixed it and I didn;t have any further problems--the parking assist is probably totally unrelated--it seems it freezes up--if you go through a car wash and it gets water in it--than it freezes from the cold--the light will come on and you'll get weird lights flashing--once it melts--it's fine again--

Hi - I have an 06, and yes, I've experienced some kind of different noise/feeling from the back end with esp off, but only this past summer, not before that. I noticed it at various speeds, slow, 45, freeway. Dealer said they couldn't find any problems. I'm not sure if I should be worried or not...I've tended to turn off esp less often since hearing it...
