Transmission computer software update

We have transmission problems. Hard downshift on low speed. Service dept told me to bring the car back later because they expect a computer software update soon. Is the Dealer telling me the truth?

Your dealer is shooting you straight. Actually the software update is out. I just had my wife's 2006 R350 software updated yesterday and so far the abrupt downshift has not happened.

Engine lite keeps coming on after auto shop put machine on it said fuel pump control circuit open (PO627) FORD SAID DONT WORRY PROBABLY SOFTWARE PROBLEM PLEASE HELP


Bring it to a different shop and have them diagnose it. If it was a true software bug, Ford would have updated the firmware on your vehicle's computer. Don't go back to that dealer, because they are obviously lazy and incompetent. I would consider contacting national Ford customer service dept. and filing a complaint, if this was a dealer that told you that.

This may sound crazy to you. Check the fuse that controls the speedometer, cruise control and interior dome light. My 93 f150 battery was going dead every night. One morning I noticed the dome light inside was still on. I couldn't get it to go off so I pulled the fuse that is under the dash on the driver side. Light went out and so did speedometer. When I drove it later that day it wouldn't shift from low until I let off the gas. Then it would shift around between gears for no apparent reason. It took me a day of two to put 2 and 2 together. When I put the fuse back in, the speedometer started working and it started shifting normally. I finally took the bulb out of the dome light and now all is well.On the 93 f150 the speedometer is electronically linked to the transmission shifting points. You may have other fuses that are linked to your transmission.

Transmission downshifts hard when I let off the gas at slow speeds


Transmission sensor.your gear ratio was not set up properly..Its supposed to be mapped out soo the tranny shifts at a neutral rpm(around 2500-3400 rpm) its punching into gear correct?could have been a rebuilt tranny in which case they just replace the current problem..Or it could be a flywheel.1st thing to get done is to change the transmission fluid and filter.Goto midas or somewhere like they and they call it a flush and fill and it costs around $160 which is best case scenario.

2005 Toyota Transmission downshifts rough


Sounds like you need the updated engine computer for harsh shifting. Look up under the glove box at the computer. Number should be 89661-02K21 if not, you need the update. It is an 8/80 warranty item.

My car has a hard jerking when slowing (like exiting from the highway).


I have a 07 Passat and my car does this when I use plus gas too often (which was almost every fill up because gas is too high!!!). I brought my car to the dealership for the same problem and I was told to alternate the plus and premium gas to keep a balance. It's almost like a knock and then the car jerks hard after being sluggish. Try alternating between the plus and premium gas and see if that helps.

Had the same problem on a 2007 Corolla. The check engine light was on, had hard shifts, and a DTC code of P2716. The computer had to be updated. I would take it in and ask them about this TSB.
