"O/D Off" Light Stays On

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

RE: 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo
Jeep service department cannot fix O/D Off light staying on all the time.  We're out several thousands of dollars adding new parts that won't fix the problem.  The vehicle will not shift higher than 3rd gear, even at 70 mph.  Do you have a solution?

Do you have a push button type switch on the end of the shift lever? Try pushing it really hard. The switch may be stuck. HTH. -Jim

Yes, however the light should turn off (meaning overdrive is engaged) after startup, and that's usually before shifting occurs. Allowing the jeep to warmup, driving it for about ten minutes, or turning it off and on does nothing to help this problem. We've had a new command module, cellinoids (sp), wiring harness, etc. installed to no avail. I'm really hopeful at the end of this process there is a logical explanaton, as we were told it may be caused by false readings that will require extensive work to locate.

    not sure how this could be a defective door switch, as the int. lights operate normally after startup, while driving, they only refuse to go out after the vehicle is shut off and exited.
