Red426 is on the money.. Move the level to "L", it will show on the dash which gear you are now in. Now you can upshift or downshift with the button, creating your automatic into a form of a manual, or limit how high up the trans. will automatically upshift.red426 said:It was discussed before in this forum. Try using the "L" gear. I have tried using this from stationary or on the highway when I need to pass very quickly. Once you shifted to "L", the DIC will display what gear you're car is on. I'm sure some of the guys here would clarify more. have fun!

The strange thing to me is that, as far as I can tell, there is no explanation of the toggle's usage and function in the owner's manual.
Go to a side road when you can cruise at 45 to 50 mph in 6th gear, then, after moving to "L" range on the selector, try to downshift the vehicle with the switch and see if that doesn't work for you. If the speeds and RPM's are too high, it will NOT downshift until the computer knows that the specific downshift will not be fatal.bowtie said:mine upshifts fine w/ the switch but will not downshift for wahtever reason. it used to until one day. i can only think it must be a software issue.
