Default TRANSMISSION LOCKED IN 4th GEAR

Anybody else?

I've had my transmission start and stay in 4th gear many times. A shudder/shake in the first 50 feet can be a part of the problem.

When the s/s happens, it will stall the engine. If it dosen't stall, the only way to clear out of 4th is to stop and restart the engine.

I always back into my dive so I always start in drive. This ONLY happens the first start of the day, and about 3 or 4 times a month. It has been in to the dealer noumerous times after it has happened and been cleared. They "Can not duplicate, must leave over night." I understand that but don't want them to have it for a few weeks.

I have taken into the dealer 3 times with it locked in 4th gear. They have had computer read outs all 3 times with it locked in 4th. The first time, it sat in the lot idling for 2 1/2 hours (not happy) before the trans man could get to it. That's when the S/M told me to bypass service sign-in and drive it into the garage.

So far, in 6 trips (they have to order parts, so two trips each) they have replaced: 1) Vbody Pkg, 2) Module-Powertrain Control, 3) Transduce-Pressure Sensor. The last "repair" (replace parts until you find it) was 1/18/11 so it may or may not be fixed.

Well today I started out to the doctors office and the Ram is locked in 4th gear again! Ambient temp here in Florida is 76 (sorry) so not a cold weather issue. As doctors and thier test will not wait, I could not drive it into the dealers garage this time. Maybe next time I'll not be time sensitive. It has happened many times (not documented by the dealer) but the next time they have it locked in 4th gear will be the fourth time.

Hello Lemon Law.
