GM incorporates the CAGS (Computer Aided Gear Selector) into these Corvettes to help gas mileage. Who drives an Corvette to conserve gas? No one we know. For those who aren't familiar with the CAGS system, here's how it works.
The skip shift solenoid is a performance feature which forces the driver to shift from first gear to fourth gear during light acceleration and low engine load conditions. This feature is used to ensure good fuel economy and compliance with federal economy standards. The skip shift system consists of the following components:
-The powertrain control module (PCM).
-The skip shift solenoid.
-The skip shift lamp.
The PCM determines when the skip shift system is active when the following parameters are met:
-The vehicle speed is between 15-19 mph.
-The engine coolant temperature (ECT) is greater than 171°F.
-The BARO is greater than 76 kPa.
-The accelerator pedal position (APP) is less than 26%.
When the conditions are met the skip shift solenoid mechanically blocks the gear shift lever from going into the second or third gear positions. When the drivers pulls back on the shift lever with the system enabled the transmission will go into fourth gear.
When the conditions for skip shift engagement are no longer met the PCM disables the skip shift solenoid, allowing the driver to use second and third gears.
After seeing many of these go for $40 or more, we have now developed our own Skip Shift Eliminator. This operates the same way other name-brand modules do, for 1/3 less money. We are so confident in this product, that we are sending it to you with a lifetime warranty. If it ever fails, simply return it, and we will replace it.
Simple plug in installation. This will disable the skip shift selenoid, it will not disable the skip shift light on the instrument panel. No splicing or cutting required and retains factory appearance. No tools required other than a jack and jack stands or a lift. Detailed instructions included.
