Ford Fiesta overdrive cancel/grade assist
Manual Pg 247 sez "D (Drive) Transmission operates in gears one through six." Page 248 sez "after deactivating
overdrive cancel/grade assist .....press transmission control switch again and the transmission will operate in
gears one thru five." Must be a typo? How can (Drive) be 6 initially and when you return to it it is only 5? i'M LOST
im not sure i understand the question. your pressing the overdrive cancel button? do you want the grade assist not to operate?
here i found some info. Drive with Overdrive (O/D) cancel and grade assist is activated when the Transmission Control Switch (TCS) is pressed. The TCS is located on the selector lever knob. When the TCS is pressed, the 6th gear or O/D upshift is prevented or the transaxle shifts down to 5th gear. The TCS is meant to be used when driving conditions cause excessive shifting from 6th to other gears such as hilly terrain, mountainous areas or when engine braking is required.
