Shifter A/T: Description and Operation
The gear selector is mechanically connected to the transmission by a cable, which operates the gear selector valve in the control system.
A mode selector located on the gear selector makes it possible for the driver to switch between three different shifting modes:
ECON = Economy
SPORT = Sport
WINTER = Winter
The gear selector has 6 positions, with the following functions:
D Automatic shifting between all gears. (Not applicable when mode selector is in WINTER position).
In this position the 4th gear is blocked. The warning light on instrument panel lights. Automatic shifting occurs between the other gears. (Not
applicable when mode selector is in WlNTER-position.)
L In this position only the 1st and 2nd gears operate. The warning light on the instrument panel lights. Automatic downshifting occurs, but
upshifting is inhibited. If the gear selector is moved to position L at a road speed exceeding approximately 2500 km/h (ECON) or 10-15 km/h
(SPORT) 2nd gear will be engaged. If the speed is reduced to below approx. 2500 km/h (ECON) or 1-15 km/h (SPORT) downshifting to 1st
gear will occur, but upshifting will not occur, regardless of vehicle speed. (The speed variations depend on which engine the transmission is
used with and do not apply when the WINTER mode is selected.)
