Yeah, it sure isn't hot from just sitting there. At least you don't have to worry about your transmission all burnt up inside.

If you only drove it 1/4 mile on the road and it got that hot there has to be a defect in the transmission/torque converter, lack of oil, or maybe it really isn't that hot and it's just a bad sensor/computer thing. I donít think you could even get a pre-2012 to get Hot Oil in only a 1/4 mile from a 80 degree starting temp.

joe002 Doesn't look right at all - especially for a 2012 with the added cooler. If the transmission is really getting that hot in your situation then it sure sounds like a defect in the transmission/torque converter.

You do have the pic to show the service guys if they don't see anything in the computer.

Right around the corner...Jeep has 2000 miles on it. Never had it off roading yet...totally stock...wondering if anyone else has had this problem yet? hopefully dealer finds something tomorrow..it has been sitting since sat evening so i hope the light may come on again...if not i am assuming they are just going to send me on my way...thanks for any info on this problem...
