I did this fix and it worked. CEL went away and haven't had any issues in almost two months. Before, it was almost every day. I highly recommend you do this if you're seeing these symptoms.

It was pretty easy. I got the board out, I used electronics contact cleaner and q-tips to scrub between and on the graphite plates.

Wtf

ok so i am at the stage of sliding the shifter assy over where the knob is. but it is stuck on there like a mofo. I removed two visible screws but the right hand side is STUCK so im assuming there is two more screws underneath the assy that cant be seen cause they are covered by the part of the shifter assembly you can see while driving that has the PRND on it. how the hell do i remove that to get to the two remaining screws... there are two clips on the left side but one is like 100% specifically designed not to come off... im so confused now.

I did this and no more limp mode/codes, just follow the directions and don't rush or you may break something.

OK....You have no idea how much I appreciate this info! I have a 2005 Laredo and have had this problem for 2 yrs now. When I took it to the dealership, they said it could be one of two things wrong and that I would just have to drive it until it got worse for them to be able to tell the fix. I thought this was the craziest thing I had ever heard. For me the problem comes and goes. Sometimes it will be a couple of months and other times it is a constant problem and I'm scared to pull out into traffic. I plan on working on this fix real soon. I can't wait to do this and I can't thank you guys enough....well, if it works.
