Transmission not engaging
I did a search for this and didnt find any info.
I am having problems when I put the Mada in drive, it just revs up and bairly moves foreward. It has happend several times this week, but it also happend last year while driving through the desert during the summer. (not towing anything). This time, I was on a boat launch, pulling out my Jet Ski, so the SUV sat all day in the heat, it would not engage again. Wife had same problem once leaving the house. Lastly it happend on my way back from vacation, only driving for about 30 minutes, stopped to get gas, then I couldn't get it to go. I did have a trailer on it this time (3700 lbs), If i sit and wait, or try several times, it works. Once it works it has NO slipping what so ever, still great power. Finally saturday I dropped of the rental trailer, and pulled around waiting for the wife, once she got in, same thing. We waited for 20 minutes, then were able to go. I took it into the dealer, they are "still testing", but cannot duplicate the problem. Advisor said they are checking the database to see if this has happend to other Armada's. Anyone ever experience this in the past? ALso, sometimes the little squirkle around the P,R,D, 4, 3, ETC... disappears, and the SES light comes on. Oh, the AT CHECK light blinked 8 times as well several times as I was sitting in 109 degree weather.
