2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Dies In Drive

Asked by Apr 07, 2017 at 10:16 AM about the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my 01 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo AWD (6cyl)
is constantly overheating. The cooling fan wasn't
turning on when it needed to do I changed the
cooling fan sensor, now the fan runs continuously,
even when the jeep is off. I'm assuming there's a
short or it's wired wrong. But ever since then, my
jeep will just die when I put it in drive, not reverse or
if I hurry and put in D2 it will run. But as soon as it's
in drive it shuts off like I turned the car off. It did this
a few months back, but we thought the battery was
bad so we replaced it, checked the alternator and
somehow the problem just went away and now it's
acting up again.

I was thinking maybe it could be the transmission
speed sensors.. I have had problems with the cruise
here and there and when it was driving, sometimes
it had a hard time shifting, but I'm not exactly sure.

Also, now the check gauges light beeps on and off when driving in D2. I looked at the gauges and the battery power seemed low, the oil was over half way and the temp started to get hot a minute or two into driving but I think that's because I don't currently have the cooking fan connected since it runs constantly. The oil just got changed, the transmission fluid is clean and topped off.
