        2008-2021 Dodge Challenger Skip Shift Eliminator

        2008-2021 Challenger Skip Shift Eliminator

        2008+ Dodge Challenger Skip Shift Eliminator

        In an attempt to increase fuel economy, there was a feature added to the Tremec 6060 manual transmission used in the Challenger, as well as many other vehicles, which forces the driver to shift directly from 1st gear to 4th gear under certain driving conditions. According to the 2009 Dodge Challenger Manual, these conditions are:

          Engine coolant (antifreeze) is higher than 106°F (41°C),
        • the vehicle speed is greater than 19 mph (30 km/h) but less than 21 mph (34 km/h),
        • and the transmission is in first gear, and the accelerator is at 1/4 throttle or less.
        • Application: 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 Dodge Challengers
        • The 1–4 Skip Shift indicator message will be displayed during these times.

        While this may be fine and dandy to keep the Challenger from having a gas guzzler tax applied, I found it a major nuisance as I'd be looking for 2nd gear only to be forced into 4th with the car bogging down a tad until RPMs picked up. This also typically occurred while leaving a stop light at a turn signal crossing traffic. Luckily this annoyance is easily remedied. This skip shift is achieved by use of a solenoid on the transmission which locks out the shift from 1st to 2nd much in the same way reverse is locked out when the car is moving in a forward direction. This solenoid relies on an electrical signal to activate, so adding a resistor of the proper value in line with the solenoid's connection will effectively prevent it from activating, thus eliminating the skip shit feature. Southern Car Parts has just such a device that is completely plugged and play, easily installed, and easily removed should you ever need to do so.

        Installation instructions:

        Challenger Skip Shift Eliminator

        To install the skip shift eliminator you'll need to support the vehicle on automotive ramps or jack stands to gain access to the solenoid located on top of the transmission. DO NOT use a jack to support the vehicle as the jack could fail with catastrophic results. Once the vehicle is securely supported look underneath the vehicle just above the transmission cross member. You'll see a blue and white connector that comes out of the side and perpendicular to the transmission. This is the skip shift solenoid. Simply unplug this blue and white connector, plug one end of the skip shift eliminator into the solenoid, and the other end into the plug that was originally attached. That's all there is to it.
