    2012 CTS-V Coupe Skip Shift Eliminator

    I am new here and to Cadillac. I just purchased a new 2012 CTS-V Coupe 6 speed. The skip shift ( 1 - 4 ) is driving me nuts. Who makes a Skip Shift Eliminator for the V2 ? I have found lots of V1 ( 04 - 07 ) units but not V2 ( 09 - 12 ).

    Ted,

    I'm looking for an on-line vendor, part number and a price. Not a DIY project. Of all the usual web sites none have a V2 listed. That is what I am looking for.

    Keith,

    It only shows up in slow traffic. I only have 400 miles on mine and its happen three times. I have fixed this problem on my Vettes with one of those plug & play units, but I can't find one for the V2. It really shocks you when you find youself in the middle of an intersection ....... in no gear ........ trying to find second gear and being blocked out of it.

    I have yet to run into the problem after about 900 miles. And I live in LA and I have so far been in some severe traffic where it took an hour to go 10 miles.

    What RPM are you at when you shift out of first? I don't drive the Vagon any different than all my other cars, and I have never had the skip shift thing come on. I get 15mpg.

    Yeah my v1 did this MUCH worse than the v2. The thresholds must be different. I had to remove it on my v1 but I can totally live with it on the v2 since it rarely happens.

    Junker,

    It is at low rpm but, I can't tell exactly because you go into panic mode finding yourself in NO gear at all. I know the solution is to up the rpm between first and second ..... but I'd rather just rid myself of this issue as I have with my Vettes. Its an easy, cheap fix ....... but I can't find the part number or vendor.

    Mother,

    Ohh ........ It activates all right. Its like being in a rowboat and suddenly loosing our oars. I just need help from you guys in finding a V2 ( 9 - 12 ) part.

    Don't blame me if it doesn't work, but http://www.apex-speed.com/apex-motor...ator-8001.html is for the Camaro SS with TR-6060...

    And http://www.speedlogixstore.com/product_p/izm993.htm is one for a Challenger with TR-6060...

    Maybe someone who knows the insides can verify that there is only one solenoid part so the resistance values will be right.

    Mother,

    It appears that each car has its own different wiring harness connections. Its not one-size-fits-all.

    Very annoying and stupid....not sure who thought CAGS was a good idea....But i really think the V2 is better...I think you should go back to dealer and have them check it somehow....yours seems to be way to sensitive....( maybe its in the tune somehow..?)

    While not impossible, I think that's pretty unlikely. Has someone tried and failed to use that thing? I've never seen either transmission up close...

    I am surprised you are having a problem with it. Like who Houdini said, it was very intrusive on my 2005 CTS-V. But on my Camaro SS, I hardly ever get it. And when I do, half the time, the 1-4 pops up on the DIC but it still lets me into 2nd. Of course 90% of the time, I start in 2nd gear anyway.
