Default Performance/Normal shift

I have the SSEi so of course i have this option. I'm not exactly sure how to use it or what it does. I tried to put one or the other on but the little light won't light up at all. If you could help me out with this i would appreciate it.

the LED may be burned out, or the pod may be disconnected. Most people understand this option backwards. I tested it by switching my pod into Jseabert'* SSE.

In NORMAL mode, your trans will shift a little bit lower in RPM'* than a car without the option. It'* more like an economy mode than normal.

In PERFORMANCE, it should shift slightly higher than in normal, but at the same RPM as a car without the option.

This option really limits the shifting, doesn't enchance it.

Remove it! Connecctors on the bottom. It just pops out, similar to the seat controls.

You may also want to measure resistance through the switches, but I don't have my Factory Manual handy to help you with that. Some of that is posted here. Look for topics in Everything Electrical by BonneMeMn. He was playing around with these a couple months back.

The option is usefull for Series 2 bonnies, when you get an upgraded PCM it is used to go between raised shift points and normal. So it is a usefull feature.

The topic is on the 3rd or 4th page. It'* a 2 page topic as well....


I just recently got my 5 button pod hooked up to my new starting relay/circuit, my TC button is a starter It doesn't slow me down.

I have a good switch to measure if you need it done.
