Just bought my son an 07 Unlimited with and automatic tranny. The automatic gear selector function fine from park to rev (push button and apply brakes). However, the shifter handle will freely move from Drive to Neutral & lower gears just by touching the lever.

Is the push button on shifter need to be engaged to move from one forward gear to the other. Seems like we had to do this when we first bought it.

Any suggestions on the problem? I checked the cable a the trans bracket & the plastic bar with balls inside handle.

Could this be a cable / rod issue at shifter under console?


Thanks for the help.

Regards,

Thomas

I can push up to get into N but I have to push the button in to engage into 1st or 2nd.. Maybe try taking the shifter apart and check to see if the button is not working..

Thanks AugiChef. I can now get the button to engage the gears and "bump" it up to higher gears. Just needed to be removed & cleaned-up plus tightened.
