Best piece of advise I could give is to read the manual. Not only will it tell you what you're doing wrong, but for the most part it will tell you everything you need to know.

Thanks for all the replies. I have read the manual that came with the car and it says nothing about electronic range select. I understand what it is now and it shows up on the instrument panel. what is the highest gear it usually operates in mine says 9 and I can go down but 9 is highest. By the way I called Jeep and was told it is like a manual shift. I told him he better read more. I will download the manual and see if it is better than the one I got. Just downloaded the manual. it is much better and includes lots more than mine does. Thanks

The jeep guy was right if rpms are high enough it up shifts and downshifts if not over reving. It will downshift by itself but can be done manually. If your going 90 mph shifting into 9 even works.
The manual does not go into detail and does not cover all scenarios. The best way to learn it is use ers through all scenarios and have some fun. The ers is computer protected so drive it figure it out or never use it for sure fear!!

I'm not too sure what you're trying to say. I know if I leave the range select in 2nd gear and go it won't shift any higher even when redlining so be careful. If you have the range select set for a certain gear it won't shift higher than that gear. And the range does not have correlation between travelling 90mph and 9th gear...

I was just being a little extreme for the 9th gear just trying to say you have to be going fast enough for it to get there.
All I'm basically saying is I can control my shifting up and down if I want to keep my revs higher in all gears. Like in city driving I can use sports mode full auto so rpms stay higher when taking my foot of gas. I can do the same using manual select mode. And a 3rd way way to increase rpm in full auto mode is to give the gas pedal a quick flick to drop down into a lower gear and you can do this repeatedly as your slowing down to get into a lower gear faster for engine breaking. I really think this transmission is cool and like it a lot for what it can do. Even when I come up to my garage door in auto mode I will flick my gas pedal to go from 3rd to 2nd to 1st.
So reading a manual for learning all about a vehicle is about the same as reading a manual and being knowledgeable at some of our other hands on activitieslike learning to ride a horse.

Here is another trick to downshift for breaking if you don't want to manually downshift a gear at a time.
NOTE: To select the proper gear position for maximum deceleration (engine braking), move the shift lever into the ERS position, then simply press and hold it forward (-). The transmission will shift to the range from which the vehicle can best be slowed down.

It's not manual select though it's a range limiter. What you're using it for is fine but that's not what it's designed for and can be misleading to others who also believe it's a manual shift select. You can't upshift using the range selector as you're stating, if you're select a higher gear and it's upshifting it's because the transmission knows it should already be in the higher gear so it will upshift as intended, but it won't go higher than necessary. The range select is to limit the RPMs for towing and braking.
