What is winter mode


Andrew, in automatic equipped vehicles with winter/wet mode selection, I believe it starts vehicle off in a higher gear to prevent wheel spin. Your manual should explain what winter/wet mode is.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a 1998 holden jackaroo SE automatic petrol car and it starts,reverse but when u put it in drive it doesn't drive if you press on the winter drive it goes so what's causing the problem?


Get a trained person to check the transmission. If it goes backwards but only goes forward in winter mode then there is a trans fault because auto's generally pull away in 2nd gear in winter mode to reduce wheelspin.

Where is BRAKE TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID in a 2003 Saab 9-3?


It sounds like you are either in "winter" mode, or "failsafe mode". If it's winter mode, you should see the word "winter" somewhere on the display. On my 1998 Saab 900, the winter button is on the console. Pushing it turns the winter mode on and off. If it's in failsafe mode, you're going to need to take it to a GM dealer.

My transmission works in winter drive but not on its own


Have you had the transmission control module scanned for fault codes? This transmission is electronically controlled. If no codes show up in memory then you may have a mechanical problem, Also winter selection starts in 2nd gear, so you may be missing that gear.

What type of tires would you recommend for winter driving?

Winter Tires

Better Starting Grip in Icy Conditions.
A special Winter Flex Compound, specially formulated to maintain its grip under the most extreme cold-weather conditions, including snow and ice, to help deliver better starting grip and shorter stopping distances.

Better Traction In All Winter Conditions
Cross Z-Sipes Technology uses a specially designed curve that locks the sipes in place, helping to provide improved grip on snow and ice. And because the sipes are full-depth, their grip lasts winter after winter.

What all-season tire would you reccommend for a 2002 Ford F150 2 wheel drive truck? Must go through deep Pa winter snow storms


Don't waste your money on all season tires if you are going to be wading through deep snow. Get a good aggresive mud and snow tread for winter driving. I've had good luck with Goodyear's in Eastern Canadian winters. Hope this helps.

2002 trooper A/T 4WD will not move from start or stop.


One of two things has happened. Either you have lost first and second gear in your tranny (Winter drive starts you out in third gear) or your TCM (Transmission control module) is shot.

Check the TCM first, it's the lesser (cheaper) of the two evils.

99 trooper with TOD how do i know if it is on


Power drive delays the shift points for upshift of the automatic transmission. It will degrade fuel economy, but you'll get more peppy performance.

Winter drive will only engage if the vehicle speed is below a certain threshold (I think 23 miles per hour) - and only if the vehicle is in Reverse, Neutral, or Drive. It causes the automatic transmission to start off in 3rd gear (rather than 1st gear). The purpose is to provide power, but not torque to the tires. In winter driving, torque increases the probablility of the tires spinning. The vehicle will seem to be VERY sluggish when winter driving is engaged - which is completely normal behaviour. It will automatically disengage when vehicle speed increases above the threshold.
