Paddle upshift sometimes results in downshift

15 SRT: Sometimes in manual shift mode, triggering the upshift paddle will result in a downshift (yes you read that correctly), even while accelerating. Happens randomly but frequently. Dealer looked at it today but couldn't reproduce (of course) and they didn't see any fault codes.

They did perform a TSB related to the transmission but they don't think it was meant to address this issue.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Re: Paddle upshift sometimes results in downshift

Some of us having this very same issue and started the same thread only last week - Both paddle shifters only downshifting???

Seems a replacement paddle is the solution, I've just told my dealer to order one before it goes in next week to avoid delays.

My volume buttons on the same side of wheel have also been replaced once and still playing up will need to be looked at again. Maybe the wiring to the steering wheel is faulty on some of our rigs???
