A Simple Solution

Often there are relatively simple solutions to repair what may appear to be BIG PROBLEMS. For example, the automatic transmission Shift Strategy found in Ford F-150 Trucks, containing the 4R100 automatic transmission. If you or your customer has disconnected the vehicles battery recently, you may here drivability complaints about the vehicles transmission performance. Don’t worry, this is usually a self correcting problem, and not the result of your transmission fluid service or exchange.

CAUSE: This problem is often related to loss of memory in the electronic controls, mainly caused by disconnecting the vehicles battery or power supply. To account for different customer driving habits and conditions the 4R100 automatic transmission electronically controls the shift quality by using an adaptive learning strategy. When the vehicles battery is disconnected the transmission must relearn its adaptive shift strategy.

SIMPLE SOLUTION: Under normal operating conditions optimal shifting will resume within one hundred miles of operation.
