I myself have in the past accidentally put it into manual mode when shifting into DS and wondered why it wasn't shifting until I looked at the dash and saw "M1" instead of "DS" and realized I had held onto the shifter a second or two after moving it into DS and accidentally put it into Manual Mode.

Thank you for your comment! I actually looked at the Dash and am sure it was in DS mode. Having said that, what you are saying makes sense. I wonder if it is possible (due to a glitch ) to have the DS sign on dash while the lever is in Manual mode.
