I just bought a 92 Jeep Cherokee. The Jeep ran great the day I bought it. I havent driven it since, I went out to drive it the other day, and the jeep shifted in 1st and 2nd, but never shifted into 3rd. It is a automatic transmission. After this happened, the check engine light came on, and the codes where that the battery was recently disconnected, and the tps was above 4.96, dont know what that means, so maybe you can help me out there also. So, I disconnected the battery, and reconneted it, and the jeep ran great, besides the check engine light. I drove it 30 miles to my parents. Got in it to move it, and the same thing, it wouldnt shift. Anybody have this trouble?

Usually when a TPS sees ~5volts it means that it's at WOT (which would explain your shifting woes), I'd try replacing the TPS and clearing the codes. It's a simple 10minute replacement.

Let us know how it works out for you.
