Skip Shift Feature

Is there any way to turn off that damned feature!!! Every time I want to drive sensible (LOL) it won't let me be a normal person and shift into 2nd....makes me shift into 4th and almost boggle out. Is there any way to turn it off. I believe there is a sensor in the engine bay but I haven't found any info about it in my manual or on the web so far. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

you can buy a skip shift eliminator
Here's the link- CAGS Skip Shift Eliminator for GM V8 Engines - CMUNDER - PFYC.com
theres other ones too, i believe this one is the cheapest but it's a pretty simple design so quality shouldn't be a concern.

You can also have it tuned out, but if your just trying to eliminate that before modding that far then this will work.

IMO: People make too big an issue out of this. Once you get to 20mph or 2K on the tach it shifts fine. Once you are in the car and used to driving it for a while you automatically shift at 20mph or greater. It's a simple fix installing the eliminator but I wonder how many people shift at 2K or greater with the shift kit in it. It bugged me too when I first got the car, shortly after getting accustomed to it, it never activates for me.

Before I tuned it out I only had it activate once. You really, really have to dog it to have it raise its head.
