Skip shift, window indexing, & car starting videos

Here are a few more videos for you guys.

The first is a video of the dreaded skip shift in action...
the second was a request for a video to show the window indexing..
the third is another startup video...and I show a 16GB flash stick in the USB port.

Enjoy

I have a bunch of the Bee-Otch air fresheners in my desk drawer...I hope to use them on my Camaro someday if I ever get it.

it is like lockout but for the wrong reasons...esentially the car can shift to 2nd in terms of gear and speed but the glitch in the ECM is not allowing...If you like mild concussions feel free to shift to forth otherwise drop to nuetral and load back up from there I will bet my life it "somehow" correllates to the Launch function!

Nope glitch the stress a 1st to 4th is never worth the gass savings...and if they feed the BS enjoy the new clutch at max 60k....

Or buy a Skip Shift Eliminator for $30.00. That is if it is compatible with the '10.

I've driven my car 75 miles...haven't seen the skip shift come on yet. Oh yea...and by the way....I'm getting horrible mileage too.

Skip shift has been on Corvettes for 15 years...under very light acceleration it will propt you to shift to 4th to theroretically increase mileage. This is done to improve the EPA sticker for estimated mileage...not a big deal at all in everyday driving.

No the skip shift is not a glitch. Its there for gas saving measures and to avoid the Gas Guzzler Tax. Soon enough there will be something to bypass it like on the 4th gens.




damn ya just beat me too it...lol

When I drove a 4th gen Z28 with Skip Shift, I just started going from 1st to 3rd. Worked fine.

Emblamer, Many say they don't notice the skip shift. Are you seeing the same thing?
