Operation Driving Modes There area number of different driving modes of operation. Some can be selected by the driver and some are automatically initiated by the EAT ECU during driving: l Normal model Sport model Manual (Steptronic) model Engine warm up model Hill Descent Control (HDC) model Cruise model Hill model Default (Limp home) model Reverse lockout model Cooling strategy. Normal Mode Normal mode is automatically selected by the EAT ECU on power up. In this mode all automatic and adaptive modes are active. Normal mode uses gearshift and lockup maps to allow vehicle operation which is a compromise between performance, fuel consumption and emissions. If the transmission is operated in sport or manual mode and the selector lever is moved to the 'D' position, normal mode is automatically resumed. Sport Mode The sport mode operates in high range only and provides enhanced acceleration and responsiveness. In sport mode the EAT ECU uses shift maps which allow the transmission to downshift more readily, hold gears for longer at higher engine speeds, and limits the transmission to 4th gear. Sport mode is selected by moving the selector lever to the left into the 'MS' position. When the sport mode is first selected, 'SPORT' is displayed in the message centre for 6 seconds and, if 5th gear is currently engaged, the EAT ECU downshifts to 4th.
