Autostick Question

This might be a newbie question here but I was playing around with the autostick while sitting at the stop light and with one tap to the left, it goes directly into 1 and I can only go up to 2. Is that a new feature in the 2010's? In my 5.7, I was able to go 5,4,3,2,1.


Thanks!

-Joe

Re: Autostick Question

Re: Autostick Question

Joe, I noticed the same thing. However, if you hold it to the right for a moment it wil shift all the way to D. I am still in the break in process as well, so I don't want to screw around w/that too much. One interesting thing is that it will allow you to downshift even if by accident. Not sure that I like that "feature"

Re: Autostick Question

Here you go.

Here is the link ( http://www.wkjeeps.com/wk_transm.htm )

Autostick Operation
By placing the shift lever in the D (Drive) position the lever can be moved from side to side. This allows the driver to engage the AutoStick mode. Moving the shift lever to the right (+) or the left (-) will engage the Autostick mode. In normal driving mode (Boxed “D” displayed in the PRNDL), moving the shift lever to the right (+) will engage the Autostick mode putting the transmission in the currently engaged gear. Moving the shift lever to the Left (-) will engage the Autostick mode and downshift the transmission 1 gear. For example, the transmission is in Normal Mode and is currently operating in 3rd gear, a boxed D is displayed in the PRNDL, a push to the right will engage the Autostick mode in 3rd and a Boxed 3 will be displayed in the PRNDL. A push to the left (-) will engage Autostick mode and downshift to 2nd gear and a Boxed 2 will be displayed in the PRNDL. Once Autostick mode is engaged a move to the Right (+) or left (-) will trigger a upshift (+) or trigger a downshift (-).
NOTE: In the Autostick mode, the transmission will only shift up and down when Left or Right (D-/D+) is manually selected by the driver.
The transmission will not honor a downshift command if the downshift would result in a engine overspeed condition. The transmission will always honor a upshift command from 1st to 2nd gear, however 2nd - 3rd, 3rd - 4th, and 4th – 5th upshift commands will not be honored if the vehicle speed is to low to maintain operation in the commanded gear. The transmission will automatically downshift as the vehicle slows to a stop.
When in the Autostick mode, as the engine RPM nears the engine maximum speed, an “UPSHIFT” message will appear in the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) portion of your instrument cluster. This message appears in order to alert the driver that the engine speed is approaching it’s maximum value and a upshift to the next gear is required. In the event that the driver does notupshift, the engine control system will limit the engine speed to protect the engine.
Shifting into or out of the Autostick mode can be done at any time without taking your foot off the accelerator pedal. When the driver wishes to engage Autostick, simply move the shift lever to the Left or Right (D-/D+) position while in D (Drive).
Hold the shift lever to the right for at least one second to disengage Autostick. The transmission will now operate automatically; shifting between the five available gears.

I'm pretty sure the computer will not make the downshift if its deemed unsafe to the jeep, I've had some very hard 2 to 1 downshifts where it chirped the tires but that was when I was learning the system and seeing what it can do. My problem with autostick is sometimes it will not let me drop back to D when I hold it over to the right, usually I'll have to wait for a light, drop to N then back to D.

Re: Autostick Question

I was thinking the same, but it came as a suprise that it would downshift and cause the higher RPMs just by tapping the stick. Of course it's going into a lower gear so that would be expected. I can't imagine this being good for the motor, but I guess they have safety measures in place so it won't over rev.

Re: Autostick Question

I have hit the stick twice while it was on D to the left, so it would shift to 3rd gear when I was travelling 105 mph and it did not switch ... I guess the automatic control doesn't allow it ... when I tried it travelling 75 mph it did shift down to third with a high rev.

Re: Autostick Question

joe you cannot go from 5-4-3-2-1 at a light as i told you on the phone. mine does the same thing. at a stop you can only start from 1 or 2...

the transmission will not allow you to downshift or upshift if it is not safe for the transmission.
