Where in the transmission is the OEM temperature sensor located? I have a 2012 with no tow package, but OEM transmission cooler.

I came across this thread on JF about getting transmission temperatures on UltraGauge. Here's the link:

My Jeep does have the HD cooling fan from the tow package. I see about 160-ish on the highway, and up to 200-ish in town once it's warmed up (depending on how stop-and-go the traffic is). The highest I've seen since adding in the cooling fan is about 215. I was towing a trailer in town.

Not bad, especially with trailer.

I have 3 fans. 2 electric and a mechanical. Once its warmed up on road the trans hovers around 170° and has never gone above 180° on the road. Towing it's typically in the range of 175°-190°. Off road the temps are all over the place but once I see either the trans or engine hit 210° I stop and let it cool down. Also I only have the oem trans cooler.

What OBDII bluetooth adapters are you using with Torque? Any suggestions?

Thanks for the info in this post, I am using Torque Pro but I have no idea why this doesn't work for me...

These are all the PIDs that I have set up, pretty much followed all the variants in this post:

My KK is a 2009 Limited. I am in Australia so not sure if there is something different about our models (from everything I know about them so far, I am not aware of any differences except that ours are called Cherokee's).

For anyone reading this, I managed to get trans temps working on my Torque Pro app.

It was my Bluetooth transmitter. I have x3 in total for each of my vehicles. x2 couldn't get trans temps working, but the 3rd one it works with.

I did a bunch of research and it seems there are big variations in the quality of ELM327 OBD2 transmitters. All x3 of mine were bought for less than $5 on eBay. Good quality ones are upwards of $50. I guess I got lucky with 1 out of 3 of mine that trans temps (and I am sure a bunch of other data as well) can be transmitted.
