SERIOUS 2011 Jeep Wrangler Transmisson Problem

2011 Jeep Wrangler .. Sahara


Today, after driving...

My car transmission felt so messed up. When driving over 40mph, the car brakes hard it self to around 25mph.

I can't put my car in reverse at all.

Here are the functions now of my transmission.

P= park
R= park
N= Drive or sometimes Nuturel
D= Drive

At first, my car wouldn't shift up after 2nd gear. But later on the day, it started shifting fine.

I am pretty sure this is the same for 4Hi and 4Lo

Please give my your thoughts and answers.

Thanks

Hate to say it but attempting to do burnouts might have had something to do with your transmission problem.

I never successfully did burnouts because of a rev limiter.

Please give positive answers

Transmission sounds like it has gone into limp mode to protect itself... Take it to a jeep specialist shop or the dealer they are the only ones who can get transmission out of limp mode. Transmission usually goes into limp mode when it gets hot or starts to slip or low fluid, there are about 6-8 situations that make them do it.. u have 42rle transmission???

Is there usually a sign that tells you limp mode is activated?

The shifting you described is the signs it has gone into limp mode. Not shifting into second, no reverse all those things happen to protect tranny take it to a jeep/dealer shop and have them reset the ecm on the tranny about $100

I apologize for my remark the other day concerning your Wrangler burnout threads. When you wrote that you wanted to do a "Burnout", I didn't realize that you meant your transmission. Congratulations!

A burnout in a Jeep? Really..kharma kharma kameleon..

You go to da penalty box for 2 minutes and you feel shame!

Like everyone else said go to the dealer with your tail between your legs and after the ECM is reset, in a quiet moment when you are alone with your jeep, apologize.

Burnouts in any of the old muscle cars were real burnouts. In a Jeep Take it to the dealer. It should be under warranty unless they somehow say it was abused. Probably went into limp.

PS;

If they notice, and they will notice that your trans will have symptoms of abuse, your Screwed.4500 to rebuild.

Transmission Limp Home Mode
Transmission function is monitored electronically for abnormal conditions. If a condition is detected that could result in transmission damage, Transmission Limp Home Mode is activated. In this mode, the transmission remains in the current gear until the vehicle is brought to a stop. After the vehicle has stopped, the transmission will remain in second gear regardless of which forward gear is selected. PARK, REVERSE, and NEUTRAL will continue to operate. The Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL) may be illuminated. Limp Home Mode allows the vehicle to be driven to an authorized dealer for service without damaging the transmission. In the event of a momentary problem, the transmission can be reset to regain all forward gears by performing the following steps:
1. Stop the vehicle.
2. Shift the transmission into PARK.
3. Turn the engine OFF.
4. Wait approximately 10 seconds.
5. Restart the engine.
6. Shift into the desired gear range. If the problem is no
longer detected, the transmission will return to normal
operation.

Unless he is slipping in a gear, which I bet he is after tring burn outs, in this case it sounds like it is....

If the OP was attemting burnouts, he may have damaged the transmission. But when I posted that he asked for positive comments.

Everyone shut the hell up. I said I never did a burnout. My wrangler wouldn't rev up any higher than 2000 rpm. So burnouts never happened.


To the people who gave advice, much appreation.

May not have "did" a burnout, BUT, you attempted. Silly boy, jeeps are for offroad. Worse case your out a trans and rear end and dealer scraps your warranty. Best case, limp mode, no obvious signs of abuse and dealer sends ya on your way, lesson learned.

Let me get this straight. You have a 2011 Wrangler but it wouldn't rev over 2,000 rpm?

No easy fix. Take it to the dealer.
