Yup that's what happens.
I pulled battery cable and things did seem to reset.
This is on Jeep built after July 14th so it should have new Transmission Firmware.
It was better (still not as good as Non Eco mode) but better than it was.
Over time it came back.
I cleared Fault Codes last night and the software says Engine may run rough as it relearns/recalibrates itself. I suspect it may have wiped Transmission learning too. Because ECO felt better this morning.
But I have to be careful. Most of the time it's fine.
It's just in certain situations, it's down right dangerous.
It's like your going 30 mph (or so) and it just up shifted, say to 6th and you need to goose it to get yourself to where you feel you want to be. And you just goose it, a little. And you get NOTHING. Your immediate reflex is, to GET Where you planned to be, is goose it more. If you waited it would eventually downshift mildly. But since you goosed it more (to get things going) it down shifts a LOT. Like it might go down to 3rd gear. And now your passengers are panicked. Engine is racing. And you go PAST where you wanted to be. It really sucks when it does this. And there is no reason it needs to and doesn't save gas. In fact, it wastes it.
It does not do this in Non Eco. Mostly because it will be 1 gear lower in the first place and may not need to downshift at all. And if you do, it responds quicker to mild acceleration, with a mild downshift (1 gear). Which is all you wanted !!
It's hard to anticipate you need it with Paddle Shifters or Sport mode (which engage great) it's the driver that can't engage it fast enough sometimes.
