It's not broken. The message can be misleading. It seems normal for it to sometimes go into second even when skip shift activates. The message is displayed for much longer than the solenoid is energized (on purpose), so by the time you actually shift the conditions for skip shift may have already gone away even though you still see the message.
The 2013 Boss does have skip shift, I confirmed it with my transmission guy at ford. And if you unplug skip shift it does give a code that ford is watching for they will void the transmission warranty if you have any problems and have unplugged it. Was told direct from ford. I tried everything to get it disconnected they will not. This is comming from ford not me.
I was told they do? By a ford guy. If not then that would explain why ive read people whom have one that had the 2012 said the 2012 felt faster? They had to do something to pass the cali laws? Anyway I'd buy the damn beer right or wrong it's been a long week as long as there are plenty of women ;D
I am going to but he is from ford thats pretty funny that they dont even know their own vehicles. Yeah I have herd that but also have herd some still have it so I told him and he said nope they all have it. Nice maybe then he will dissconnect mine ;D
If CAFE is a production fleet average, then fuel economy improvements in Ford's other vehicles might have permitted them to get rid of skip shift in Mustang. I doubt it made much of a difference in the first place.
