Trans gear indicator question

Recommended Posts

When in sport/manual shifting, the dash will show which gear the trans is in, but that is only temporary.  Does anyone know how to change the gear positions indicator to remain lit all the time?

In Sport mode, if you shift manually it'll stay in manual mode and the display will remain on until you exit manual mode.

 

Other than that, there is no way except with a tuner that supports it, Livernoise is NOT one of them.

Wonder if you can activate it through Forscan

No, it can't. I have not found anything related to it in ForScan.

Hmmm I wonder how Tuners such as ZFG and Unleashed were doing it... Oh well, Not a necessity but would be cool

This is only a guess, the current gear indicator on the dash simply displays information it receives. So when the transmission is in manual shift mode the PCM sends the current gear info to the cluster. The Tuner would program the PCM so it sends this info all the time, not only during manual mode.

Tuners and Forscan can only change data values so it depends on whether the PCM code uses a flag to tell it to send the gear indication or if it's part of the code logic.

HPTuners allows it.  We just did it yesterday while on the way home from picking up my 2020 from the dealership.
