I have no idea but mine does the same thing. Shifting into 3rd gear I guess 80 -100km/h in cold weather only. As soon as it heats up it shifts fine.

The sportage is programmed not to shift to 3rd until the engine is at least 155 degrees

Where is the reverse lights switch on 2002?

You didn't state weather it was an Automatic or Manual transmission. Well any way they are both on the transmission. Manual transmission has a separate switch for the backup lights the automatic is built into the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Automatic switch is about $50.00. Manual switch is about $10.00. Hope you have a manual it is a lot cheaper.

What would cause your 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee transmission not to shift properly during cold weather you have to manipulte the automatic transmission with speedthrottle setting?

Sounds like the transmission filter is partially clogged. The colder temperature makes the fluid thicker and it flows less easily through the filter in cold temperatures. Have the transmission serviced. Change all the fluid and the filter. I would not recommend you have the transmission flushed as you more than likely have lots of miles on this vehicle. Flushing the transmission at this juncture may stir up trouble. Just drain and refill.
