i've read countless threads and posts over the past couple of days on the abs shut off mods you can do and the side effects such as transfer case indicator shutting off, 4wd, ebrake, abs lights coming on and all that. the only effect i'm wondering about is how it is said that an auto tranny will not shift when you have the abs ecu switched off since the tranny's computer needs info from those sensors to decide when to shift. my question is for people with auto fronty's that have tried this: is there no way to shift at all or does the tranny just not shift when in the drive position. is it possible to shift by moving the shifter from 1 to 2 to 3 ... ect or does it just stay in 1st no matter what? i have an auto and have already felt the wrath of abs not letting you stop as fast as you could on mud or loose ground and would like to avoid this problem with the mod. thanks in advance for your replies i know this is prob a subject most of you are tired of talking about.
