2007 ION-2 Sedan
Default Question about B&M shiftkit problems..

So i recently installed the B&M auto shiftkit on my '07 ion 2.2, and have a couple weird problems. When i have the switch set at 0, the car runs fine still. When i have the switch set at 1, the car doesn't run right. it'll shift harder and works fine with accelerating, but when i slow down to anywhere under about 20mph, the car sputters and stalls. On level 2, I can accelerate fine, the tires will chirp into second, sometimes into third, sometimes rarely it'll make that BOV sound when it shifts into fourth. But about 50% of the time when i speed up from first gear, if i'm at WOT it'll shift into second, chirping the tires, and then get stuck at 4k rpm and not pull the car at all. like if i had shifted it into neutral or something. letting go of the throttle completely fixes it, but it's just... weird. Also i thought i remembered someone saying it made that BOV sound all the time. (it reminds me of my old satty i miss having a turbo)

I checked the wiring again and it looked fine. Has anyone else had any weird problems like this? Is my shiftkit faulty? Should i try disconnecting the battery for a bit to reset everything?

and a sidequestion, do the radios lock themselves when you d/c the battery? and if they do, the dealership can unlock them right?

thanks in advance

no, the radio will not reset itself, but the car will relearn the driving dynamics, which might help your case.

Default Re: Question about B&M shiftkit problems..

so i just tried disconnecting the battery for a couple minutes and when i started it back up again on level 2 it seemed like it was working fine, so i parked the car, shut it off, switched it to level 1 again. first red light i got to when i slowed down the car sputtered and stalled. after that the level 2 did the same thing it was doing before, where it would act like it was in neutral between 1st and 2nd gear.

i'm really stumped by this, anyone else ever hear of problems like this? did i wire it wrong even though it seems to be working most of the time?

Definitely contact B&M about this. Also check out Cobalt SS.net because many users on there use it. I, personally, wouldn't want to mess with something like your transmission like that just for "harder" shifts by increasing line pressure.
