I have had this happen a few times now. After switching into the next gear the Jeep has no go. It has happened from a stop into 1st. It has happened 2nd to 3rd. The worst was trying to get up to speed on the highway 3rd to 4th.

Also the start stop light is on but will go out when you restart the jeep.

Called the dealership service department yesterday and they cannot take me in till 8/20/2018

Any ideas?

Attached is a Youtube video of being in 3rd after just shifting into 3rd.

I believe I may have a similar issue, except mine doesn't shut down as much, just a definite power loss with engine vibration and shaking. Mine is accompanied by the ESS light and either a flickering or lit check engine light.

Is there another dealer in your area that you can get you in sooner? Send me a direct message if I can be of any assistance with this.

Hi Steve,

Are you thinking you'd like the dealer to take a look? As you may know, we can escalate your inquiry should you decide to do so. I am available via direct message.

Update.

Picked up the Jeep today around 4 pm and had a 45 minute ride home. It did it again. The dealer found nothing wrong with the start stop and the transmission. Did talk to the shop foreman a bit about it.

Weird. It’s like it’s in limp mode.

Yep but I have never seen a manual that had a limp mode.

Manuals have a limp mode. I have a Volkswagen Passat manual that when the turbo began to fail, it went into limp mode.

Recited a call from the service adviser. The shop foreman can not reproduce the symptoms. He is driving it home again tonight if they do not show up or reproduce for him I have to pick the Jeep up tomorrow.

I have spoken with @JeepCares .

Went down to pick it up today. I drove it for the shop foreman and got it to do it for him in the Jeep. They kept, I kept my loaner.
