The trans module has to have any codes erased and the trans will need to have the adaptation erased. The trans module will learn the way a customer drives and it will change the shifting characteristics according to the drive style. Also if a fault is present it will stop adapting and lock into that mode. So a scanner that can perform this function will need to be used. I realize we have talked a few times regarding your ML. I would like help you figure this out. I remember you said hey your wife usually drives the car. Have you ever felt the shifting issues and can you redescribe the issue ? All details would be great too. I would hate for you to waste money and time on my part as it is hard to diagnose over the computer without a scan tool but I can do my best. The rest of today I will be at a family function. So tomorrow morning I can revisit you and this issue. Feel free to reply with as much of the info as you can. Lou
