Any thoughts as to causes for OBD code P1762- Governor Pressure Sensor Offset Volts Too Low or High? My 1997 Grand Cherokee Laredo is not shifting properly, and my OBD reader shows the above code.

The Governor Pressure Sensor is bad. The Governor Shift Solenoid probably isn't to far behind. That's a common problem on full size Dodge truck 'RE' style auto trannys. At around 40-60K they start crapping out, and eventually throw a code 1762: 'Governor Pressure Sensor input is greater than, less than +/- calibration limit for 3 consecutive park/neutral calibrations'.
If you plan on repairing the trans yourself get a Governor Pressure Sensor, and a Governor Shift Solenoid at the same time; and a new filter too. The parts work together in the transmission. If one is bad the other is right behind it. Call the dealership, if there not total idiots they'll know exactly what you're talking about.
I had a feeling that was the cause of your shifting issues. The OBDII code confirmed it...

Thanks tardis- that all sounds right. Is the procedure to replace the sensor and solenoid available somewhere, ideally online? Is just a pan drop required?

The repairs are somewhat involved if you're new to trans servicing. There's not much 'free' info available online. Factory service manual CD's are available on eBay. There are plenty of trans rebuild books out there to choose from.
I helped rebuild one of these trannys a long time ago. It's loosely based on a 727/904 design with the addition of an OD gearset, lockout TC, and a lot more electronics.
Transmission hard parts aren't cheap, so shop around for a deal. Hope this info helps. Good luck in your quest.
