Default Truck stuck in Manual Shift Mode - Anyone Else?

I started my truck after work yesterday, and put it into drive, it acted funny, like it was in neutral or that the trans was slipping, had to rev up before it started to move. Looked down and it was in 4th. I tried to shift it up or down, nothing. Put it in neutral and back, still 4th. Put is into park and then drive again, still 4th and it lurched when it was engaged into drive. Ended up turning truck off, on restart all was fine. I never use the sport shift mode. I have had the flash for the transmission, done a month ago. First and Only time this has happen.

Not worth involving a dealer, unless it can be repeated, or at least happens more than once.

Anyone else?

Been having it here for months. Had the update done and still the same thing. Just shut it off and re-start it. Clears it right out. Apparently whatever it is leaves no trail so when they scan it, nothing shows.

Well I am not sure if it is comforting or not that someone else shares in my issue. Hopefully chrysler will get it figured out.

Hmm... I have not experienced this but glad you brought it up incase it does happen to me. I probably wouldnt make an issue out of it unless it starts happening more frequently

If it happens again I would leave it just as is and trie to get it to a dealer without shutting it off. The will be able to scan it then and find the problem. By doing this it does not clear the code. Good luck with the problem.

Cant really drive it when my does it. I tried moving a short distance ONCE. When it changes gears it will give you whiplash. Seems that whenever it happens the line pressure in the trans must increase. Almost as if you have a hard hitting shift kit installed. It also takes more throttle to get the truck to even move.

My truck does the same thing also. I'm hoping that the dealer will be able to catch it. So far they haven't been able to figure anything out yet.
