Force an automatic transmission into a gear? Answered
Is it possible in the technological day and age to force a computer controlled automatic transmission to start in a higher gear like second. About 90% of people will never need this, however out on the farm in a big diesel truck with 800lbs of torque you need it. By starting in a higher gear it allows us to get through snow much better and this becomes extremely difficult with an automatic transmission. Sure we can set the highest gear it will go into, but we can't lug through the snow and mud like we would like to. Do any of you know of a chip out there already, or one you can make that will let you pick and chose your lowest gear.
