I just received the SERVICE MANUAL for the GTO.

On page 8-278 Instrument Panel, Gages and Console.

Item marked #12 is "1->4" and description says SHIFT 1->4 Manual Transmission Indicator.

Does anyone know what that indicator means?

I have accidently seen it come on once while accelerating fast.

Thanks

Please explain? What does a skip shift indicator do when on? How to turn it on/off?

Thanks

Rinku

PS on 11-94 under Power Outlets. #7 is marked as Front Cigar Lighter?

It seems that they are calling RADIO TURN OFF/ON AND VOLUME KNOB a FRONT CIGAR LIGHTER?

its a gadget that forces you to shift from 1st to 4th in order to save fuel. Its complete crap for any car to have but GM's idea to earn a better fuel economy number. To disable it, order up from GTODEALER a skip shift eliminator. That will turn it off permanently and you can then shift to any gear you want, whenever you want.

are you in the owners manual? Because I have a copy of the 05 and 06, along with the supplements, and I dont see chapter 11, mine only goes up to 5 for the 05 model.

well, looks like they took it out of the center console and put it in the dash. Thats a nifty idea.

...if you smoke or if you have a radar detector and/or navigation system and/or XM Roady XT that need power. I'm glad to see this option added. I went with a cordless radar, professional install on the XM Roady XT, and still have a cord run out of the center console and to my Magellen Roadmate 700.

GTODealer,
Do you do cluster programming. I am in need of getting some done, but am not to crazy about pulling my cluster and sending it off. You are close by as I am in Plano.

blah when the hell am I ever gonna light a smoke blasting along in the GTO ...=P.... I figure it this way... If you cant talk on the phone and shift while driving DONT ANSWER YOUR CELL PHONE IN THE CAR... If you cant reach into your pocket for a lighter while driving DONT SMOKE WHILE DRIVING... If you cant pay attn to the road while playing with your stereo.. guess what... DONT ADJUST YOUR SOUNDS WHILE DRIVING...

I see ignorant people all the time answering cell phones,lighting cigs,playing with their cars .. while driving .. and they end up swarving or rearending other people ... dumbazzez like that should be shot...

If you have talent driving .. then you should be able to do whatever the hell you want .. :willy: :party:

No I am the only person in the world that offers it. It's not hard to remove and send it in, TONS of people have done it without a single issue ;)
