I had a similar problem with my GC, but I never had to put it in neutral to get it to shift into 4th. My shift cable in the transmission was adjusted and the fluid changed and this solved the problem, however I now have a new problem with 4th gear, but this is another story. How many miles are on your GC and do you know if the previous owner's ever flushed the transmission or serviced it?

I have 162000 miles in mine.and I bought it from a smalldealer
I think the atf was changed becouse i looked under the car and the transmission oilpan is superclean compare to the rest of the trans. also I noticed that the front driveshaft is missing(suppose to be a 4x4)of course they told me that i took it out to get an other one .stupid thinking .but anyway thank you for the reply
also do u know how to reset the mile service ? I also had to change the coolant temp sensor but the screen says that the coolant sensor is bad I guess need to reset that one too

I'm not positive, but I believe to set the service indicator you press select until the mileage until service screen appears and then you hold set and it will flash or beep and reset to 3000 miles. I'll double check tomorrow to see if this is the correct way of doing it. Good luck with the transmission problem, maybe reseting the computer or something along that line will solve the problem.
