Question Help!! Au 1 Xr8 Adaptive Shift

Wondering if anyone could help me with some information on the Au Xr Series "Adaptive Shift".

Wondering how you change it in and out of "Performance/Normal Mode", I had heard that it was something ridiculas like having the key on accesorys and moving the auto selector with cobinations of blinkers or something....

Can anyone help me! Plz!!!!!

P.s. The car in question is a Ford Falcon Au 1 Xr8 Auto with the police modifications...

Cheers
Evan

Re: Help!! Au 1 Xr8 Adaptive Shift

The process for changing modes on the xr adaptive shift autos is as follows.

1 = Performance Mode
2 = Economy Mode
3 = Adaptive Shift Mode

To change the mode place the gear lever in the the desired gear (1 per 2 econ 3 adaptive)
Turn the key to acc.
Wait for the airbag light to go off then shift the lever up to reverse.

the econ light should flash 3 times to signal a sucessful mode change.
Then just place the shifter in park and start it up.
Thats out of my owners manual as well.

My thoughts on this process IT SUCKS.
Adaptive shift takes to long to adapt to you driving style
Econ sucks cause if you are on the hwy and want to over take some thing it will only drop back 1 gear when it can drop back 2 in other modes.
Performance mode is where mine stays the shifts are firmer but not that bad when you are babying it. And when you put you foot down it goes back through the gears as far as it can and gets up and goes.

Re: Help!! Au 1 Xr8 Adaptive Shift

Yeah, what sylox said.

I'll also just add that if you wanna know what mode you're in when you start the car you can look at the 'econ' indicator in the LCD. Every time you turn the ignition on, if you're in economy mode, the 'econ' indicator will light up and stay that way. If you're in performance mode, the 'econ' indicator will light up briefly and then go off. If in Adaptive mode, you won't see the 'econ' indicator at all.

EvilChief - there are actually only 5 maps in the adaptive program. When you manually set performance or economy modes, it just fixes it in map 1 or 5.

Steve.

Erm, well, ok.... forget that stuff I said about the econ light then Ph03n1x ! :)

Casper - out of interest do they have any way to confirm modes/mode-change then or do you just have to take the computer's word for it and go by feel?
