Remember reading something about this; I think it required a re-program of something in the dash. I didn't see anything on a search here, but you may try LS1 GTO forum- -

Funny, I had a Grand Am that had that feature, years ago. GM got slammed by some major car rags about "telling" people when to shift. Now people want it.

You can buy the "skip shift eliminator" that gets rid of the 1:4 shift.

that's what i was thinking too...that you had to send it in. that sucks because mine is my daily driver too. do you think that would be something that the dealership would be able to handle?

Hmm..will the car startup without the cluster being in the dash?. I can just cruise along and not pass the slow moving cars for a week while i'm without the cluster.:D

Yeah, I could see that now:lol:
And I would like to thank you. I took your advice and used Lexol, Meguiras, and Invisible glass. They ALL worked much better than what I was using. So, thanks:cheers

I wonder why they never activated this light from the factory? I figure it was either laziness or because they couldn't quit arguing about which shift point would piss off the least amount of customers...

You're welcome. Keeping the Goat clean has become a weekend chore that I love.;)
