Hi, I have been having transmission problems with my Grand Cherokee Laredo since June 2012 (at a cost of $3,000 to date)with an intermittent problem of going into limp mode. It has been back to the JEEP DEALERSHIP on each occasion (being four to date) and they advise me that it is a supply voltage problem to the TCM which in turn affects the solenoids in the transmission. The last time (early October) it was in and only the last time they informed me that the battery fail the test so I purchased a new battery and voila!!!!! I am mystified why the battery was not checked at the first visit because in my mind that if the problem is voltage would you not go to the source to start the fault finding. Also at the last visit they told me that I need to replace the TCM & Solenoides at a cost of $7,250.00 . I told them to reset the codes and I drove away and have had no further problems to date.
I hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!!!
#1048 of 1101 Jeep grand cherokee No reverse
Dec 17, 2012 (10:52 am)
2002 42RE Transmission 130K stopped working properly after overheating the engine 4.0L 2WD (radiator cracked). Transmission has no reverse. Does not up shift from 2nd to 3rd in D. Reverse initially was shuddering (jumping ) at first which lasted a short time before losing All power. No problems with shift selector 1 or 2. Starting off in normal drive mode (D) 1st shift takes place 2000 rpm 2nd shift 25 mph .... and from there as soon as the speedometer hits 35 mph tranny hits whats feels like Neutral, I then have to put the selector in D2 which is OK as long as I don't need to drive faster than 35 mph. If I leave the selector in D I have to put the gas pedal down a bit enough to increase the RPM to approx. 4000 rpm at that time the tranny will continue to drive as long as I'm increasing the speed. The tranny does not slip it feels like neutral. Transmission fluid was Dark when checked filter was replaced as well as the transmission fluid ATF 4 was used. Graphite greased was noted on magnet in pan. No metal was seen although fluid was Very Dark before Fluid Change. Transmission shop wants $2000 for rebuild. What else could cause this ..... Torque Converter ? any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank You

Sounds like Jeep or the NHSTA needs to do a recall of Jeep transmissions. We only have 50,000 miles on our 2007 JGC, and we are being asked to pay almost $3,000 for various repairs, including a new transmission. We'll just park it before we pay that much!

I have a 2011 JC Hemi Limited....what a piece of junk that transmission is. I currently have 64k on my jeep and I am on my second transmission. Like a lot of what I read, my second trans is doing what the first on did. Low RPM it rides like a tractor. Shutters, vibration at time it seems like it does not know what gear to go in, sometimes it shifts very hard while driving, other time it seems to take for ever for the passing gear to kick in, when it does she shakes while the engine is screaming. I have brought this jeep back 27 times already since the transmission has been replaced and they keep telling me that its normal. I brought in my X5 to show then how much better the completions product is. Since I have owned this junk I have replaced the drivers window module 3 times, the power steering, the water pump, navigation system and the transmission. Lets be real here, this is a jeep and when you watch the commercials this thing can climb walls, yet I have never been off roading, never towed anything it has all been highway miles. I am very disappointed with this truck and I paid big bucks for this thing. I'm tired of fighting....I just want to burn it to the ground.....thanks for reading and best of luck....

Did you ever figure out what it was? My 06 JGC has been doing it off and on, and when its idling at a stop light/sign it bounces...
#1053 of 1101 problem with gears not shifting solved
Jan 20, 2013 (8:54 am)
I have been trying to post but it's hard to get back to this site. I had to get my transmission rebuilt because the gears would not shift automatically. I'm still having problems with it shifting sometimes since December 2012. The mechanic said that now it's the cable to the transmission so he wants to look at that. I paid 850.00 to get the transmission rebuilt. Too much money but this is what I have to do for now.
#1054 of 1101 2012 Unlimited Shifting Issue
Jan 24, 2013 (10:59 am)
So when I am at a complete stop, then accelerate.. i can feel a slight 'bump'. I almost though that the motor was off the mounts but thats not it. It varies in severity. I drove off of the interstate the other day and stopped. Started to accelerate and *boom*. thing shifted like a darn train. Any thoughts?? Its like the vehicle isnt shifting completely down into 1 at a stop. Are all jeeps this way? Can anyone feel this sensation from a stop/start, stop/start?
Jeep.. as usual.. can never duplicate the issue.

I have the same issue. I thought that my spare tire was loose and thumping upon take off. I have the 3.7 liter and the problem hasn't gotten any worse.

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.
