Re: big problem need help

Did it actually downshift?
Did you notice the tacho (rpm counter)?

Re: big problem need help

pleae put a MY in your sig or post. i can see a WK in the avatar, so i am guessing that.......







battery is the most common casue of those types of freaked out things.
when the battery is low all sorts of stuff happens.

other things after that is ESM which is the shifter, again MY and engine size help here, so leave it a t that for now.

help us to help you >>>>

Re: big problem need help

I had a similar issue with my 05 WK 4.7. After lots of tinkering, the ultimate cause for me was the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS).
