#1060 of 1100 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stuck in Limp Mode
Apr 05, 2013 (11:05 am)
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.

#1062 of 1100 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Stuck in Limp Output Speed Senosor Problem???

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!!

May 24, 2013 (8:24 am)
Never had a minutes problem with my 2004 JGC 4.0 with 118,000,until I was about 45 miles away from the house,I was sitting at a redlight of course with my foot on the brake waiting for the light to change and it felt like someone rolled into the back of me gentley,just felt like it wanted to take off,well when the light turned green I went to take off and it was in drive,or 3rd gear,I pulled it down manually and proceeded on.
It doesn't do it all the time,I changed the fluid and filter,pan was clean and oiled smelled fine.
But you can feel it shift while I am stopped,when it does that, it takes off in drive,thanks for any help?
I am not sure what transmission I have.

I have a 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo and it has recently had several problems. It started overheating more frequently even after I repeatedly fill it up with coolant/ water weekly. I was on my way home from work the other day and it started overheating. So I stopped the car and there was smoke every where. I waited for a good ten minutes until the smoke cleared and the thingy wasn't hot. Then I put more water in it and it ran fine. The next day it started overheating again but it also started to click and not in the way that there is little oil because the oil is at the safe area. It also dies a lot when it starts to overheat. I am crazy con fused on what is happening to it nd I need some advice.
