Code p1764 governor sensor

Asked by Feb 11, 2017 at 07:08 AM about the 2004 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Going insaaaane! I have a 2004 grand cherokee and check
engine came on. Code is p1764 which is the governor
sensor. Now from what I read thats actually called the
transducer.  BUT most videos for it people were also
changing the solenoid. SO i order both and chamged both.
Light was still on. I thought a part was bad so i started over
changing 1 at a time. (This is a pain as you have to drain
tranny fluid every time)  all said and done putting a new
solenoid and keeping the original transducer fixed the
problem and light went of. I went to autozone and had them
hookbup the code reader to check and they said nothing
showing.  2 weeks later BAM!! its back! Shoot me or help
me please. Could something else be killing the solenoid??
Could it be the transducer even though that wasn't the
problem the first time and what are the chances 2 weeks
later its that? Its just a real pain to open the trans pan and
drain it multiple times for trial and error like you could use
with other jobs (and its 15 degrees out right now) so any
help before I start would be so appreciated guys thanks!

You may have to visit a transmission shop.

First there is a traduced and governor pressure. I personally have issue I replaced 3 times had computerrepaired only to have code come back on. They are two sensors next to one another you always replace both. Anyways I am now at a loss. Replaced sensors 3 times had computer repaired now damn code is back and no one can tell me why at a light after car driven for 30 mins when u stop at red light you get hard shift cause not in first and sluggish take off? I can manually go 1 st 2 no to drive and fine. So mean less to say I have had enough as the same part went out two yrs ago. It's a jeep thing and I won't buy another jeep. Transmission and computers every couple yrs. my 1998 and now the 2003 same damn issues

I went to tranny shop they charged 600 for two visits and yep code still there. I personally being the driver think there is a wiring issue to the plug itself. I am not a mech and apparently neither is tranny specialist
