no resistors, hard wired and no chewing up on clutch packs here and i'm fairly certain i was one of the first to do this on this board back in 2003. that car had 220,000+ miles on it when i retired it due to rust this year...transmission ran and shifted perfect and i pulled it to keep as a spare for my new daily driver, probably had about 50,000 miles with the switch installed. i'll keep saying it so long as "chewed up clutch packs" are propogated....only ONE person has responded to say they had an issue and they left the switch on, clearly not intended usage. i'll say it again...has anyone had an actual failure?
this may be why he is not chewing up his clutch pack. he als is cycling the solenoid much faster then the TCU does, so he is allowing for the plates to slip like they should.
Maybe he has found the holy grail
still only response is from someone that left the switch on....noone is going to recommend that!
i don't recall any failures resulting from this modification. can we link to actual threads or will someone post about failures?.
