nobody has any ideas that could help with my transmission issue?
Im trying one more time .... I have a right hand drive jeep wrangler that I have just replaced the motor in last week. When I first took it to my mechanic he checked it out and said I would need a motor but I coukd take the vaccum intake off the top of the motor so it would run long enough for me to run my rural route. As soon as I drove off from his parking oot my jeep all the sudden would not shift passed second. My husband seems to think its just coincidence, but I just have to know for sure that it cantbe something else. When I took my jeep to the actual motor shoo to have it rebuilt ( different mechanic) he saidnhe couldn't find anything electrical that the previous mechanic may have knocked loose, so he hooked it to his computer. The coe popped up 605, I think, it was saying it was something with my trnsmission computer. So my husband then took my jeep to the transmission shop ( the third mechanic). He said it had a code on it that all he had to do was hook his computer to it and clear the code. As long as the code went away when he restarted the car it would be fine. Well the code went away, jy husband got it back home and drove it down the road and it still wouldn't shift passed 2nd. Also the "transmission mechanic" said the transmission fluid smelled burned and when we called to tell him the jeep wasn't fixed, he told us we would have to replace the transmission. I hooe that makes sense to someone, please help!!!
It sounds like the Jeep is in "Limp mode". This mode is there to protect the internals of the transmission from eating themselves. What year Jeep is it? Miles? OffRoad? DD? These will give a history of the Jeep and give us a direction. Did it go through all gears before the engine swap? How long have you owned the Jeep? Has the fluid in the transmission ever been changed?
I guess you all can tell I'm new at this I am a mail carrier is why i have a rhd. Its a 2003, automatic ,4.0, in line 6 cyl.. 200, 000 miles (transmission is only 3 years old and only has about 60000 miles on it). thanks everyone for the help. I will definately try the pcm. I have been told by one mechanic that his computer pulled up a problem in the trans computer, another says it could be a sensor
Be very wary swapping a buddy PCM as you can quickly make it never work on you buddies car
If you have sentry key and swap in a buds PCM for a test just three starts and the sentry key module is forever activated and if his jeep lacks sentry key you bricked it and it will only run for one minute then shit down in his non sentry key vehicle
The vacuum hose has been put back on. I only had it off on the day my motor messed up so I could finish delivering my mail route. I have rebuilt motor and while i had that being done, i went ahead and had a cooling system installed. Man! The tcm is expensive!! Thank goodness my parents have a jeep that messed up and the parts will work for my jeep. I will let you all know how the tcm and pcm works out. Please bare with me as I know, I'm not very good at "car talk". Im a woman in my 20'smso I'm learning. Thanks again to all of you!!
If steering column is intact you could look for the coil receiver module around key cylinder otherwise no way to tell as it is in all PCM but only activated when it sees the reciever module in column and once activated cannot be deactivated
I'm not really sure of all the mechanical terms to explain, but before I replaced my motor, something about the pistons and not getting resistance. When we had the intake on, the motor would stall out. I only had the vacuum intake off for one day so my jeep would run long enough for me to finish delivering mail that day. I have since replaced the motor so it has been back on.
I will look at the coil reciever module and see if I can figure it out. What about the coil reciever module tells me it does or doesn't have the sentry key. I'm not mechanical, at all. Sorry
Hey I uad my jeep diagnosed and 8t was the tcm and in limp mode. Od 123.00 for diagnosis, 314.00 for tcm (from Chrysler) and 123.00 to flash it. Not bad, much better than a transmission cost! I also found a great jeep salvage yard called salvage jeeps in statesboro ga. They told me never to buy computers or anything related at a parts store bc they won't last like the the actual chrysler parts. Also told je about a place in miami fl called solo electonics. They rebuild electronics for alltypes of cars and have warranty. Thank you all for taking the time to help me, I would have put a transmission in my jeep had you all not been there to help me. So thanks again and until next time good luck with yours
