SETUP mode is used to customize your COMPUSHIFT II configuration.

You should only enter SETUP mode when it is safe to do so. Do not attempt to setup your COMPUSHIFT II while driving.

If you purchased COMPUSHIFT II from a dealer, the dealer has pre-programed your COMPUSHIFT II for your specific application based on a series of questions. We recommend consulting your dealer or HGM headquarters before attempting to program changes on your COMPUSHIFT II. Your COMPUSHIFT II is a finely engineered tool, and like any tool, can be used improperly.

COMPUSHIFT II is designed to work in a variety of applications. Incorrect programming in conjunction with some vehicle, engine and transmission combinations can result in extreme transmission and vehicle damage. In particular, failure to provide adequate line pressure under high power or high RPM conditions can cause transmission failure. Be sure you know what you’re doing before attempting to change programming in SETUP Mode.
