Where is 1994 Sportvan downshift relay location

There's no such thing as a downshift relay.Trans downshift is cable actuated.Go to the end of cable at the carb/throttle body,open the throttle fully by hand and depress the black button in the cable connection block,the cable housing will pop and when your driving will automatically reset to where it needs to be.Your done.

MY vw passat 1.8 turbo automatic its first gear is missing when i hit the break

get a transmission diagnostic test to see if its electrical or mechanical failure. AT's are controlled by solenoids that open and close valves to lead to new gears which, if not activated, wont let you downshift. but if, from a stop on the first time, it works fine, its probably electrical. the speed sensor or downshift sensor may not be working properly

CD4E OD does not downshift out of gear when decelerating, OD light is now flashing, and I can no longer move in forward gears.

The Engine and Automatic Transmission (not applicable to manual transmissions) in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM and TCM (Power Train Control Module, Transmission Control Module). When a problem like this or other drive-ability related problems occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM. Also always check fuel pressure for correct spec for your make and engine type.

When the automatic transmission downshifts at

Hi, Honestly i would start with the basics first and change the filter and fluid, if you are not getting a check engine light with any transmission codes a filter change should fix the problem. but remember always use atf +4, do not use any transmission fluid but this.

Do yourself a favour, and do not persue that kit. It is a sham.

There are no 'kits' that takes a manual transaxle to a semi-auto. You could investigate adding buttons to the steering wheel for up/downshifts, but you would need an automatic transaxle.
