    I don't think this is one you can handle yourself. To test the Governor Pressure Sensor and Governor Pressure Solenoid you need to measure the actual governor pressure. If your scan tool can do this, then you can do the troubleshooting procedure. If not, you will need to take it to a mechanic to have it tested. Voltage needs to be greater than 0.10 volts and less that 4.89 volts. Before doing anything I would go to the dealer and find out if the vehicle is still in warranty because this is a well stablished defect in these transmissions. I believe it might be. If so Chrysler will do any testing and repair under the warranty. As a point of information, for what it's worth, there is a group trying to file a class action lawsuit against Chrysler about these transmissions. A talk with the factory representative may prove productive if it is out of warranty. Good luck!
