Hello, you will need to have the Jeep checked with a scan tool to pull the diagnostic trouble codes stored. There is a technical service bulletin that may require a reflash of the PCM/TCM or replacement of the control module depending on the diagnostic faults found. You wont know for sure if this is the problem or if there is a minor issue with a sensor or solenoid or a bigger problem which may require a major transmission repair without running a diagnostic check first and checking the transmission fluid level and condition.
