I drive a 5.9 and just had the check engine light come on so i plugged in and found the code it was throwing (P1763). Apparently it is that the Governor Pressure Sensor Voltage is too high. Has anyone ever had an issue with this? if so what can i do to fix it?
I highly recommend resetting the code. I get this code when it is really rainy wet and I plow into a puddle such that the undercarriage gets really wet. When I let it dry and reset the code, it does not come back. I have not seen this code for at least a year since the last time.
had the same problem. changed the governor pressure switch and solenoid. i did it in a day. found all the info needed to do it under the faq area of this web site. not that hard to do, total cost was about $165.00 including parts and new oil.
It will go into limp mode. I think that something like three cycles of the ignition will take it out of limp mode. Get out of limp mode and reset the code, and I bet that you will be good to go. If the code keeps coming back, then you can resort to swapping the solenoid. I have done the solenoid swap dance once in the past, but I believe that it may not be required.
Just got the P1763 code this evening on my 04 WJ drove about 20 miles home with it stuck in 3rd gear. Tomorrow I will try and get it out of limp home mode then clear the code and see if it comes back. Anyone have a link to the forum where someone replaced this sensor?
I was recently stuck in "limp mode" in my 42re. I was throwing both the p1763 and a p1762 codes. I replaced the Transmission Governor Pressure Solenoid and the Transmission Pressure Sensor, and the problem was solved. It did take a few days for the jeep to return to normal operation though, even with resetting the codes and disconnecting the battery. Couldn't tell you why. I bought the parts through:
I just did it to my 5.9 a few weeks ago. Same code, had no 1st gear. Got the solenoid, and the sensor and the gasket for $103 from a place called transtar industries. Good to go. I reused the old trans. fluid, shifts strong, no problems!
