    Shifter has no affect 07 JKU Auto

    The shifter moves freely, but has no effect on the the tranny. It's in Park, evidenced both physically and as indicated on the instrument panel. Found plenty of "Choptick" threads across the web for TJs, but am coming up empty handed still...

    This is my daily driver, so I'm stuck. Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you need to check the linkage between the shifter and the trans.
    I believe you need to remove the centre council, could be as simple as a loose clamp holding the shift cable.

    It's a fairly common failure. Likely the shift linkage disconnected/broke where it attaches to the shifter, underneath your console. They fixed it on the trail on a yellow JKU in one of Eddie's older Wayalife Moab videos.

    Update

    So I got underneath and found eye at the end of shift cable that attaches to tranny linkage. It was loose. Popped it back on and it's good. However, it appears ready to pop right back off. Is there nothing that retains it?

    Not sure what retains it on there. Zip ties fix just about anything though.

    Per the guy in the video above, I check the cable busing and sure enough is was cracked, dry, done. I don't think the replacement part is optimal, but with a jeep sitting in the driveway not moving, it seemed like a quick fix.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
