2013 Jeep Wrangler jku
I have a 2013 Jeep
Wrangler jku. It randomly has a hard jerk almost like a hard shift but it’s not shifting when it happens. Also since this has started it has completely died while driving down the road two times. If you sit there 5-10 min it will crank back up. It’s been at the Jeep dealership for three weeks now and they have no idea what is wrong. It is not throwing any codes and no service engine light. HELP!!!! I need my baby back.

No codes? What motor?
If the transmission temperature sensor sees any stray voltage on it (other than 5 volts) when in park or neutral, the vehicle will not start

It has no codes. It has only died twice. This has been going on for about two months.

Not much info, so don’t think anyone can help but guess at parts, such as TIPM or solenoid pack in trans or even go down the road of very bad grounds etc.... good luck

I would suggest posting this on a JK forum if you haven't already. Someone may have gone through a similar situation already and have better answers. Posting this on a JL forum you are limiting the answers you may get since some people here don't know about the JKs as much.
