Insert the key fob, press the start button without your foot on brake pedal, and then hold the acclerator for 25-30 secs. Right?
hold down the accelerator past the kick down point

I have to wonder if it has something to do with driving habits as these transmissions are supposed to learn and memorize. I need to do a reset. Is it from one push of the button to two?
thats because the dealer reset the learning algorithm on the tranny when you took delivery of it and i bet it shifted like butter.
