1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Repair Question
1995 jeep grand cherokee with finicky overdrive
1. If I lock the electric doors (which automatically sets the factory alarm) the alarm may randomly go off hours later, unprovoked by anyone.
2. Intermittently I will comeback to my truck hours after leaving it and will find the brake lights on. If I pull up on the brake pedal gently the brake lights will go out.
Is it possible that the brake switch could cause all three symptoms? I have tried to pull up on the brake pedal when it won't shift into overdrive, but it does not alter the behavior. Can anyone help me to remedy this problem, I am out of patience with this problem?
I misquoted above, I meant to say, "It does NOT seem to be temperature related".

Was the converter replaced at the overhaul??
this system works with pressure in the valve body, engine speed and yes, temperature is a factor.
if you have a thermostat in the cooling system that is not allowing the engine to reach normal operating temp, the overdrive will not work correctly.
speed is also critical as the speed sensor will have to be confirmed with a scan tool to see what info is gathered.
