Trans issues 1/3 throttle 2-3rd by way of 1st

I started a new thread to this problem to ask advice...

Running stock - got the "fix" last week (Flash as per the TSB). Me & Rebel (My co-pilot - Black Lab) go to the same bar every couple of nights... I back into a parking spot... Hang for a little while - 1-2 hrs.

Leaving - 3 times since the "Flash" - I start the truck, put in gear - wiggle about 100 feet out of the parking lot. I hit a main road- go into 2nd fairly quickly (gear indicators on) wind up to about 35mph - truck should shift to 3rd... BUT, it the indicator shows that it tries to go into 1st - although it feels like it is in neutral..

Hunts for 2-3 seconds - then it goes into third -

I am gonna try to catch it on the video (iPhone) then post here - & maybe send to Ford. This specific start is the only place I can make it happen. Dealer is OK - but if I took it to them I am not sure that they could isolate the issue - does anyone have a direct person at FORD besides the customer service Number if I can catch it on video?

Not mad - it is a small issue - but I would think that it is something that needs to be addressed in their programming - MAybe they should hire 5StarTuning to assist with their programming...

I would ask if the CEL came on after the flash and if it did, perhaps they did not accurately re-enter the data.

Or maybe the 5 Star is clashing with the new programming somehow.

I do not know the background of this issue, as far as what you have already tried for a fix, but has the pcm been replaced yet? Is this only doing it with ford's tune, not Mike's?

CEL did come on - They re-entered. Could be wrong data entry.

5 star tunes haven't been on truck since 1st Dec - way before the "update".

I know that this particular circumstance happened previous to "update"..

Thanks for clarifying that the issues are with STOCK tune and not ours. I like your idea of capturing it on video. I have a hunch i know what is maybe causing the issue though. Its the dang Computer Nanny!

Movie - 2 clips

Watch at @ 3K the tach increases 500rpm - the gear goes back from 2nd to first.. then it jump back into 2nd - then 3rd..

Steady pressure on accelerator maybe 1/3- 1/2 throttle - I am not goosing it when the rpms increase - it's like it is shifting into neutral - although the dash says it's going into 1st..

Yep, something's wrong alright. If the gas pedal is constant then I'd have to guess there's a problem with the gear position sensor. Not sure if that would have anything to do with the jump in RPM's but who knows.

It'll be interesting to know what you find out...

I picked mine up mid-dec, so not sure if it has the most recent flash. I would assume it would but you never know. However, I have never noticed the gear selector dropping to first like yours.

All that said, are there any improvements with this reflash? I plan on tuning using the SCT next week, but now am considering waiting to get the reflash before doing so if there are at least some improvements with the update.

That's good. AFAIK Byram's is the only one doing that. So far I haven't seen any other posts about that issue.

Most definitely. Some of us have posted our experiences in this thread.

If you get a dealer reflash we would have to have you read strategy of pcm and email you update calibrations.
Mike

ps i would skip the reflash...

I am not sure if the reflash has done much - better or worse... But I do like the gears showing and with the old way - I had to press the "Paddle" each time - now I haven't pressed it in 2 weeks...
