09 liberty wont rev above 2000 rpm

Seriously need help! I am stationed in Okinawa Japan, my wife and children are back stateside and have a serious issue with her jeep. I am not there to diagnose or fix it myself, I am just wondering is this "limp mode" the way she describes it are as follows: the jeep feels like it is trying to go forward while in park, and then it will not rev above 2000 rpm. From the research I have done I my own I believe I am right with the limp mode thought. Curious if there is an ate home fix I could tell her instead of paying the money to have someone else do it. And yes she is somewhat mechanically inclined and I could probably describe for her how to do it. Thanks for any and all input!

I'm not much help but first thing to try, disconnect battery for a few minutes and reconnect. Where is the Jeep? Maybe someone close could help.
Sorry to hear about your Jeep trouble.
Thank you for your service.

Dover, Delaware, she actually was just in and around Atlantic city, nj. As of a couple hours ago it fixed itself. She said she went out to give it a try and somehow it acts fine now. I hope the best for your jeep. Hoping mine was just a fluke.

Find a new dealer or call Chrysler and talk to them about it. They can open up a case for you and help you to get it resolved. It is definitely NOT normal. And this is why I hate dealers with a burning passion

it won't rev over 2K when in neutral or park? or when driving? if when in park, that seems normal. why would you want to rev over 2K when not driving anyways (especially cold). every newer car i have had (Honda civic, Jeep Patriot) have a rev limiter to keep you from revving over a certain RPM to prevent screwing your engine.
