    Hi bbb455,

    Sorry to bump an old thread, but I believe you are referring to Skip Shift, which locks out 2 (Second) and 3 (Third) gears for improved fuel economy. It uses vehicle speed, RPM and load on the engine to determine the ideal time to shift. If you are still concerned about your shifting, please let me know. Have a good afternoon!

    I unplugged mine. Easy job, no more skip shift.....tranny is operating great. I do a test shift nearly every time I drive it.....works as it should all the way to....well, into 5th at high rpms.......and 10,600 miles now.

    Just wanted to update.
    Car is at 17k now and it had been grinding into 2nd and 3rd since I got it. 2 weeks ago it started grinding in 5th and steadily got worse. Eventually I couldnt use 5th at all. Took it in to dealer and the tore it down . Lots of metal shavings, doing a rebuild. The dealer is being very helpful but it would have been nice if it was taken care of last year when instead of being told that it was normal operation.

    Just unplug the skip shift and be done with it. I did that to mine and have had 12,000+ miles trouble free.....

    Started having the same problem a couple hundred miles ago. Have a Hurst short throw installed and it makes no difference.
