#350 of 1101 Re: Jeep Grand Cherokee Possible Transmission Problem [mtylerjr]

I am having the exact same problems and I have tried to narrow it down. I bought a Actron CP9125 and hooked it up to my 2005 Jeep grand cherokee. It told me I had a P0700 and U0404. Code P0700 = Trans control malfunction.
Code Uo404 = Invalid data received from control module gear shift. This means Trans Control Sys malfunction. From what I have googled so far that means that there is a problem with the computer that shifts the tranny. I have seen two solutions. Replace the shifter bezel in the jeep (makes the most sense - replace the computer) and replace a few filters in the tranny (seems like BS). I did find that both of these fixes are in TSB's (Technical service bulletin) 21-016-06a and 21-007-06. I would think it would be smart to do both actions. I am not sure if either of these are covered by the original warranty 36K / 3 Year or the 7/ 70 K drivetrain. 3/36 should cover it. I of course am at 50K. Does anyone know if the drivetrain warranty covers a shifter bezel or TCM? I am going to go into the dealer and see what they tell me. I have a feeling I will be going somewhere else to fix it since dealers usually try and get you. BTW, I had a high whining noise at about 60 mph when I had 30K on the truck and they replaced the whole drive shaft under warranty (this is under a different TSB I think). I believe this will be the last piece of junk jeep I ever buy. Cash for clunkers anyone?
#351 of 1101 Shifting problems with 1994 Jeep GC
Aug 11, 2009 (4:40 am)
My problem: 1994 Jeep with 155k miles had a new tranny installed less than 15k ago and now when I take off from park and if I get on it a bit it won't shift The engine revs up but the tranny just kinda hesitates and I have to let off the gas to get it to shift. Going up a steeper hill at 55 it will try to kick down but once again just kinda hesitates there will lose 8-9 mph by the time I get to the top. Talked to place that put in tranny and of course they want mega $ just to check it out because the warranty in up. But the guy said maybe the governor pressure sensor or solenoid even the crankshaft postion sensor? Any ideas? Thanks

Aug 18, 2009 (12:22 pm)
I've 2005 Grand Cherokee Laredo 4*4 - 51K miles. Last weekend I couldn't shift to anything - it stays N.
I took it to a service, he said the transmission needs to be changed and it has European made transmission. He told me that it'll cost around 4.000 USD!!
Any suggestions will much appreciated... I'm in NY - Queens and if you can suggest an honest service, it'll be much appreciated...
many thanks in advance...

$4000 is a little on the high side. My 2005 4x4 automatic would cost $3400 to replace the transmission.
Its in the shop right now - fortunately I have an extended warranty that I bought last month, that -should- cover it (or most of it)
If your jeep only has 51K miles on it, it should still be covered under the original manufacturers 70K warranty, if you have all of your regular service receipts to show youve maintained it on schedule.
My jeep was a former rental, so the 70K waranty didnt apply, and I needed to get the extended warranty.

Thanks for the answer... I bought the car last year - it was 48K miles at that time... Is there any chance that still it's covered by 70K warranty? How can I check it? any ideas?
#356 of 1101 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I noticed a problem with my transmission seems like it is slipping and is getting worse. It does not happen all the time but has happened 3 times over the past 2 weeks and only happens when I am traveling 45 to 55 MPH. The car feels like it is going to stall and then it has a slipping feel for the next few minutes. I bought the car new in 2000 and was consistent in having all the service checks done. Vehicle now has about 125,000 miles and I have no intention of replacing it but I need to be sure the problem is diagnosed properly and not just have someone want to put in a new transmission. I am not mechanical and need some ideas on what could be the problem. For starters, is it the transmission?
#357 of 1101 TPS: Trans problem on 2005 Grand Cherokee
Aug 29, 2009 (5:43 pm)
I have done the research and read the posts, The Trans "slips" and will not shift into overdrive, sometimes will not shift when it is supposed too. I hope it is the TPS. Now I just need to know where it is and how do I change it? Please tell me if you have done this fix so I can get the old lady off my back and out of MY Tahoe!!!
#359 of 1101 Transmission Slipping
Sep 01, 2009 (3:10 pm)
I have a 2005 JGC 4x4 with the 5.7 L and recently, yesterday afternoon, I was out picking up lunch and when I was pulling out of my parking space the transmission did not engage immediately. The engine reved up to about 4k rpm's and after about a 5 second hesitation it finally engaged. This occured the next few times I had to stop and start again; didnt notice any kind of slipping while driving, just after stopping. I took the jeep to the closest place I could find, unfortunately it was a dealership, and after reading the computer codes and changing the transmission fluid/filter they have come to the conclusion that the whole transmission needs to be replaced, go figure. They are trying to tell me it is going to run around $4500 to fix, but I dont see how the transmission just goes out after showing no warning signs other than what happened yesterday. I obviously dont have an extra $4500 laying around; anyone experience anything similar and find a less costly fix?
