I had the same problem, it is not the transmission temp. problem. It is not the battery and it is not the starter. After spending a lot of money and no one could find it, I ran into the Shores Auto Clinic. They were able to fix the problem and it was relative inexpensive. It turned out to be a charred connection under the battery housing. They fixed it and now it runs great and the transmission temp message is also gone.

Feb 14, 2013 (10:51 pm)
i have a 2001 jeep grand cherokee 4x4 4.0 6 cylinder straight 6 motor with a 42RE transmission. i had changed the oil and radiator house the day the problem started. i drove about 5 miles and shut the car off, then about ten min later i started the car and started driving home, i drove about 3 miles stopped at the red light and then took off, as i accelerated the car did not shift out of first gear, had too drove home doing 20 mph for about two miles, when i got home i checked the tranny fluid and it was fine, didn't smell burnt, color was right and fluid was not low. the next day i took the sensors out cleaned them did not replace them, changed the fluid, filter, and gasket. now the problem is worse. it took about one minute for it to shift in reverse then when putting in drive it still won't shift and its very rough riding and wants to stall out now, money is tight and have to have the car running, someone please help, if you have any ideas please let me know

Apr 05, 2013 (12:05 pm)
Our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee keeps dropping into limp mode and the speedometer works sporadically.
My husband replaced the TCM (which was matched to our part number and programmed per our VIN) and he replaced the input and output speed sensors, oil and filter for the transmission. The speedometer started working but the transmission is still dropping into limp mode. Next, we took our Jeep to the local dealership to have the TCM flashed which did not fix the problem. Note: the speedometer is now back to working sporadically. Back to the dealership, again, and they said that PCM was turning off the TCM. So, we purchased a PCM for our Jeep and installed that. Our car drove about 5 miles before the check engine light came on again, back to the dealership, again, sighÖ They spent 3 hours checking the electrical for shorts and said maybe itís the Relay switch for the PCM/TCM. But, they really donít know anything for sure. We really need to get our overdue smog check completed so we need the check engine light off and we canít afford to keep throwing money at this problem.

Thank you for the info. Is replacing the governer pressure sensors something we can do or do we have to continue to fee our local Jeep Dealership more $$$?
#1062 of 1066 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stuck in Limp Output Speed Senosor Problem???
Apr 05, 2013 (1:43 pm)
Regarding my problem with my 2000 GJC tramission stuck in limp mode and speedometer works sporadically. It seems like the answer should be installing a new transmission output speed sensor however, that was one of the first things my husband tried. Do you think after all of this time and money that the output speed sensor he replaced was bad? Should he go through the time and trouble to buy a new one and try again?

My daughters Jeep GC is behaving oddly. I the got a call from her tow was on the way because it was struck in traffic. By the time I got there It was working fine and was able to get home. After home since then the trans mission has worked intermittently, able to move forward and in reverse but never far. Checked the fluid and it was ok. I was talking to someone who suggested that it may be a clogged tranny filter and to replace it with the fluid. She has not a lot of money to put into inspection, especially seeing a 19 year old girl come through the door. I can do some work i.e replace a filter but that's about it. any ideas Jeepsters or any tranny Guys?

DId you get the above problem figured out? I got a Jeep GC 00 4.0L Drove it about 30 Mile today no problems or noise. Later drove it about 5 mi and on the way home it wouldnt shift out of 1st. I just had it serviced about a year ago. Checked fluid level it was fine all though it has air bubbles in it. I coded it out and got P 720 P0720 (M)
Low Output SPD Sensor RPM Above 15 MPH
The relationship between the Output Shaft Speed Sensor and vehicle speed is not within acceptable limits.
Any Idea's?? Thanks All!!
