1-4 shift alert.

Is it just me learning to drive manual or does the 1le force you to shift from 1 to 4th when it tells you too? And can you shut this off?

This is an LS3 thing, not just 1LE. You can get a skip shift eliminator or have it tuned out.

You can drive around it easy enough. The only time I ever notice it is if I'm trying to take it easy (like slow easy). If you get much over 2k rpm it shuts off.

Just get the skip shift eliminator until you tune the car.

when your shifting you can still go into 2nd instead if your thinking about it. but if your just shifting like normal and just try and go down and the computer decides you werent at high enough rpm. it will slip you into 4th. Cheapest way to get around it. stay about 2500 when you shift =]

When the skip shift happens, I just delay the shift about 1/2 a second -then go to 2nd.

Thanks for the feedback. As a first time manual driver I find it a pain the the a** when it forces you to skip gears. I want to skip gears when I want not when the cpu tells me 2.

I have only seen mine pop up twice so far in the week of having the car. I just give it a bit more gas and it goes away.

Cool Really Confused now

I have a brand new, about 1000 miles on it 2013 1LE. I have never expereienced this. Did they take it off for 2013. No matter how I drive fast, slow, super slow, I just put it in whatever gear I want.

Jim,
no they definitely didn't take it off for '13 hahaha...there's a very specific rpm range that activates it. IIRC, i saw mine when i would shift from 1st at about 18-20mph

You REALLY have to be driving like a granny for this to happen. I never see it either.

No offense to granny's, I love mine..

I am really driving like granny and it has never happened to me, I have had it for two weeks now and no matter how I drive it does not kick in.

When I said I drove it like granny, I really did, I try to not even reach 2,000 rpm to save on gas. I was actually starting to think the factory missed that function on mine. thank god. Maybe it is waiting for it to be fully broken in to activate. Who knows...

i didn't think the ZL1 had the skip-shift to begin with? i though that was part of how the SS avoided the gas guzzler tax

Instructions.....Whaaaa.....

I hate to say this......But I read part of the manual......

I know, I know....Don't say it.

It boils down to if you're shifting from 1st to 2nd under 1500 RPM (guesstimate on my part) you'll get the pop-up message in the center screen. I was looking for the message on purpose, why else would I look at anything other than the heads up?

I had heard about this P.I.M.A. a long time ago on the Corvette's if I'm not mistaken. So I looked it up in the trash they left in the glove box on delivery lol.

Here's the page from the manual, page # 9-33:



And thank you for not putting another automatic on the planet just because it's easier not to be bothered to learn something "manually."

not sure what you're getting at here...this isn't telling how to turn off the "feature" as much as just how you have to operate it....yes, it says it turns it off, but not in the sense that everyone is concerned with. the very next time conditions are met, you have to skip again.
