Maybe JScan can develop a way to turn it off? I'm not sure I'm excited about it either but plan to get the fix done either way.This solution did sound a little “fishy” until someone figured out the manual transmission has a gear indicator. Since that’s available it should be a simple calculation to detect clutch slippage as described above.
I’m not worried about this fix (now) and will get it done. I’d rather not have the gear indicator on the dash, but I’ll learn to live with it.
