I got the CAGS Eliminator blown smare-fuse version $19.95 found on this forum and it worked for awhile. It ended up getting thrown out by the dealer and I replaced it with a $3.50 (for 2) smart fuse which I blew myself.
That worked for a month or so, then it started causing the check engine light to come on. It happened several times. I have a OBD2 scanner so I knew what the problem was. I replaced the blown smart fuse with a regular fuse, cleared the code, and no problems since.
Just so you know, the blown smart-fuse route may end up causing the check-engine light to come on, it has happened to others as well.
On some cars, it seems to work fine with no problems. Just thought you should know. I know I get a little nervous when my check engine light comes on and I don't want to get used to seeing it on.
Any of the major Forum vendors sell CAGS Eliminators for $20 bucks.....easy DIY install & they work like a charm. I've had one in my '05 since new & never had a problem. Do a search on "CAGS Eliminator".
I can't remember the last time the 1-4 skip shift kicked in on me. It never is a problem. Don't you just want to wind out first gear and bypass skip shift?, especially if you have NPP.
I've lived it for seven years and two Corvettes. Didn't take long to learn to drive without worrying about it. All you have to hit is 2k RPM. Okay. Few occasions, mostly left turn lanes, I miss the beat. Overall, I don't remember it as an issue!
