Selecting Adaptive Shift Modes

Stop the vehicle, apply Park Brake and turn Ignition Off

Apply Foot Brake and move gear selector to:

1 for Maximum Performance Mode
2 for Maximum Economy Mode
3 for Adaptive Shift Strategy

Turn the ignition On and wait for the air bag warning light to turn off

Move the selector to "R" and wait for the segment on the cluster to confirm the mode selected:

(Not sure if you will see this in XR's only for T series)

PEF - Maximum Performance Mode
ECO - Maximum Economy Mode
ADP - Adaptive Shift Strategy

Return gear selector to "P" and start the engine.

Programmed modes will remain unless the EEC is reprogrammed by the above procedure or the vehicle battery power is removed.

Default mode after battery reconnection is ADP.

Hi all, I am new to this site but have already found out so much information about XR's. My question is this, I have changed my adaptive shift to max performance after reading the posts below. I was wondering if by leaving it locked into performance mode if any harm will done to the gearbox. Should I leave in adaptive shift or not? I prefer the way the car drives in performance mode.
Thanks
