    I also think it wants to start in 2nd in low range all the time. If I am against something and bump it from auto or 2nd down to 1st you can feel it shift down.
    Your description almost sounds like it’s in limp mode. Have you tried having it scanned for codes.

    With two different scan tools and the key trick. Not a single code.

    You can google how to make a “fun button” to completely bypass traction controls if you think that’s the issue. Someone mentioned torque converter but If the Rpms aren’t climbing I don’t think that would be it.

    I was hoping that was it but it doesn't seem to help.

    I've had an issue in the past, but can't seem to find the forum that describes the problem, but it sounds exactly like what is going on with yours.

    Steep hill, loaded Jeep (5 adults in it), 4 low, the jeep upshifted to 2nd or 3rd, ( I don't recall exactly) but the power suddenly dropped and wouldn't go much above idle. I put the Jeep in park, shut down, removed key, then restarted and it worked fine.

    The reasoning (from what I remember reading) is that the high torque, low RPM scenario (lugging) can cause the computer to go into limp mode with no error code. Turning off and turning back on solves the problem and manual first gear helps avoid it.

    I haven't had it happen in a couple years, so forgive my foggy memory. But I don't know of any permanent fix...

    I think I can solve your problem but I’ll need to be there to fix it and we’ll need to do that same obstacle. Nice driving!!

    Sounds like traction control is kicking in when it shouldn’t. Any weird speed sensor issues?

    I would so go back and do it again! Sand Hollow was awesome!

    It was all the spotter at that point! I was just the guy holding the wheel.

    No other issues that I have found.

    I know exactly what you are talking about. I don't have a solution. Mine does it. No reason that I can tell. Usually I can stomp the throttle and it goes. Sometimes it stumbles and acts like its going to die. Is definitely an electrical cut out. fucking BS is what it is. it only does it off idle in 4lo.

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.
