Adaptive Transmission Question

I saw on here somewhere that you can basically reset the system and have it learn from new again? Is that true? Mine isn't bogging too bad but did have 360 miles on it when I got it due to being a dealer trade and driver from a different city. I wanted to know if I can make it more suited to my driving style. I have a Laredo X 3.6 2WD

Re: Adaptive Transmission Question

Nate's reset method below helps a bunch of JG drivers. Note it resets depending upon your driving habits.

Electronic Throttle Control (ETC) .. let's discuss

Re: Adaptive Transmission Question

sorry moose that resets the throttle.
BUT the OP is asking about the transmission adaptives.

the only way i know to do it is from the WK; you disconnect neg batt terminal. then you step on brake for 30 seconds. that drains any leftoever juice in the system and clears the memory. then hook it back up and go. there is also a fuse yu can pull, its for the PCm. or the WK guys with trinity and diablo can reset them that way.

It will eventually adapt to your driving style, even if you don't "reset" it. That's why they call it an adaptive transmission.

Re: Adaptive Transmission Question

my bad on the AT, thanks.

so if we don't drive the same outing to outing, both throttle and tranny have to either readapt over time or we need to reset both throttle and tranny ecm?

say if you go from mild city driving to needing to pass uphill at altitude, would there be both a throttle and downshift delay?

Re: Adaptive Transmission Question

i dont think the range is that dramatic moose. but to be honest there isnt a ton of info on the adaptives. but as far as i know thye are always adapting. how fast they adapt is my question.

some context. I have never reset my throttle. and I am constantly resetting my adaptives is I am alwyas messing with stuff and have the neg disconnectd for hour at a time.

I am installing a fastman TB today and wanted to reset my PCM.

Yea I've done it before. Before you start working disconnect the neg terminal and when your done hook it back up and by that time everything should be drained. To be sure you can hit the brake/turn on the light switch with battery disconnected to make sure any capacitors are drained too.
