Reteaching the transmission
Ok, Iíve been searching all over this forum....I know itís in here somewhere but Iím just not having any luck. Canít find it... How does one reteach the transmission?
In my case, 2009 Passion.

reteaching is done by tuning on the ignition (but not starting the motor) and while holding the brakes, move the gear selector to each gear (r, n, d) and waiting a bit between changing positions until all the clunking stops before going to the next gear.

Holding the brake will keep you from rolling away while the transmission 'finds' each gear
pretty sure it is covered in the owners manual

So even the auto-clutch transmissions learn your driving habits like those in my 2015 F-150?

No, there's no evidence the smart automated manual transmission learns driving habits.

I believe, what ever software loaded in the car computer. Dictates the transmission shift points. There isnít any learning process, or any fuzzy logic. My car in itís first year, had 2 transmission software updates. Preform by a smart car service department. Service bulletin updates.

Smart Madness does offer something that modifies the stock transmission shift program: smart fortwo 451 AutoFlash by MADNESS Online Store - smart car Parts and Accessories :)
