I jsut encountered the same problem. 2005 grand cherokee. Check engine light comes on and periodically the vehicle gets stuck like its in between gears. i have to shift into neurtral for a few seconds and then shift back into drive.

I was told by the dealership i have to have $900 of work done. Of course, I'm 3,000 miles over the warranty. The Transmission Control Module is to blame. Rebuilds are hard to find for later models, and if you find one, the cars whole computer has to be reset. New ones cost $400 to $600 not including labor.

My trusted mechanic told me he could simply clean the contacts and it might reset just fine. Will update you.

I have a 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited and we are having problems with a clunking noise when we are reducing speeds-typically going around corners. It seems like it is not shifting down correctly. Does anyone know what would be causing this?

Hi, We can use some help on this transmission problem. We bought our Jeep in January 2006, with 75 miles on it; we have put 14,000 miles on it. The transmission was having trouble shifting from 1st to 2nd gear right after we purchased it; it revs up as if it was in neutral and doesn't want to shift (which is a problem when pulling into traffic). The problem is only with the first start of the day/evening. It doesn't matter if we warm the car up or not. Our Jeep dealer is unable to identify or fix the problem. They did replace a fuel pump, to no avail. The last time we brought it into the dealer for repair, they kept it for one week and were unable to identify the problem and called it a "sensation" and returned it. Any ideas out there?
Has any figured a answer out to this? I have the same issues

My 2005 grand cherokee also bought in January of 2006(auto-manual transmission)just shifted itself into third gear and I am unable to shift into any other gear. It will go in reverse and into park. It starts out in third gear when you put into into drive and I am unable to get it to shift into 1,2,4 or overdrive?
Mine is doing the same thing. What did you have done?

I have a 2005 jeep grand cherokee limited, 5.7L hemi, and I have already repaired this issue with transmission and the computer that recognizes the 8cylinders running. Originally it didnt recognize all 8 cylinders running and only 7 and would stall every 5 or 10 seconds. Took it into the dealership about 6 or 7 months ago and cost about $1000 to fix. and it has been alright, it occasionally would jerk around but nothing huge, until tonight. when it kept stalling. Now it needs to be serviced, but im wondering if it is the same issue i had dealt with before that cost me $1000 to fix. any ideas?????

I bought my 2005 JGC a little over a year ago and it now has 68,900 miles on it. About a week ago I was driving to work and all of my dash lights came on and off, it did this the rest of the way to work. When the lights were flashing on and off sometimes all my dash lights and gages would be off like i had shut everything off but was still driving. When I went to drive home the eng light was on and it said service electric brake syst. Next time I drove it it was just the eng light. I scheduled to have it looked at but the day i went to take it in.. I drove it in the morning and all my lights were off like nothing was wrong. What might be the problem???

My 2005 Grand Jeep Cherokee transmission just went out too and it only has 64,000 miles on it and i bought it only 6 months ago used so it has no warranty. The dealership said it needs to be rebuilt and it'll cost around $3000...
I too am having same problem. If I disconnect battery and reconnect to clear the codes I can drive it again for a few miles. Also quoted $3K for repair. I think I'll keep troubleshooting the electronics such as the speed sensors ($20-$40) or the TCM about $400 I heard. Before I pay $3K I'll buy a used Jeep that runs at a used car lot for less.

Bought 05 garnd cherokee new about 1 year after that I had trans trouble dealers could not find a problem while test driving. first problem long delay from drive to reverse. Than had a gear broke had car towed to dealer and again told them about the long delay. Same answer could not find anything with test drive. Next problem trans pumped all the fluid out into the engine compartment. Back to dealer and told them again about long delay, same answer. Went back to the dealer again jeep had loud bang when putting in gear and giving gas, dealer said that the teeth on a shaft were broken, again told them about the delay with same answer. this time I drove and showed them the problem. told that they had the trans out and fixed it, still have the problem went back again was told this is how it is. anybody else have problems like this with their 2005 grand cherokee laredo?
