The vehicle may remain in first gear too long after the engine restarts. Using wiTECH, reprogram the TCM with the latest software. Note: Do not clear the adaptation memory cells in the TCM memory. This may cause the transmission to not shift smoothly until the adaptation memory cells are relearned.
