Since in a VW with a manual transmission, YOU are the shift points, there really isn't anything to reset.callisto9 said:really weird question, and probably a dumb one, but does this work for manual transmission cars?
Yeah, when me and the "ex" broke up, I reset BB... my MPG shot right back up and she was all about ME again I think he drove her too hard... but then again, maybe she liked itCaptainXeroid said:Since in a VW with a manual transmission, YOU are the shift points, there really isn't anything to reset.
Just thought I'd give this thread a bump-t-bump as the automatic transmission reset is an especially a good idea if you buy a used Bug, if your driving habits change, or if your power outputs change i.e. chip.
Good tips and insights all.
I noticed nobody posted the directions on how to reset the automatic transmission shift memory. so here it is.
turn the ignition on do not start the engine hold the gas pedal all the way to the floor for more than 5 seconds (more like fifteen) release gas pedal turn ignition off then start car if this doesnt work try just starting the car after the procedure and dont turn it off first.
This will reset the shifting memory pattern and the transmission will reprogram itself to match the shift points with the way you drive.
Just a quick correction - from the Bentley
-switch on the ignition, but don't start the engine
-push the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor and hold there for at least 5 seconds (be sure the mats aren't in the way - you should feel the pedal 'click' as you go past the kickdown switch)
-release the accelerator pedal and turn OFF the ignition
After turning the ignition off, let the car sit for a minute or 2 then start it. At least that's what I read on another thread. I tried everything I read and I never felt any difference.
I have an 01 Golf 2.o with auto and have read there are two modes to the auto trans ie Regular and Sport mode. Both can be set. Below are the procedures. 1. Regular setting - Ignition "on", depress gas pedal to floor and hold for 5 secs and then turn ignition "off" 2. Sport Mode - Ignition "on" , Depress gas pedal "Twice" and release and then start engine.
how can this work on a manual tranny??? you make the gear changes, there's no computer!really weird question, and probably a dumb one, but does this work for manual transmission cars?
Economy and sport modes can also be reset by a certain ignition switch and throttle sequence. I'll have to see if I can find it.I bought Newest version of Vag-Com and I resetted from my laptop and I checked up the "how to reset by igniton" etc. You can only reset by factory (learning) mode by turn key to ignition, push throttle for 15sec and turn off. If you want the sport or economy mode you have to reprogram from vag-com because when you choose them it says "economy mode FORCE" or "sport mode FORCE".
Omg.. So glad i read threw some of these posts.. I tried the key n gas pedel method and low n behold i just test drove it and YES! It worked!I just searched the forum trying to find the reset sequence for my 99 2.0 Beetle and I have to say the following way fixed my high RPM shifting problems. Regular setting - Ignition "on", depress gas pedal to floor and hold for 15 secs and then turn ignition "off"
It was turning almost 4000 RPM`s before it would shift and it was kinda jerky shifts but know it shifts sooooo smooth and changes around 3000. Thanks for everyones input on this subject..
