The vehicle will go into the sequential mode, and the M (sequential mode) indicator and sequential mode gear selection indicator will come on. If the vehicle speed increases and the engine speed reaches near the tachometer’s red zone, the transmission automatically shifts up to the next gear. You can cancel this mode by holding the (+ paddle shifter for two seconds or push button.
When the sequential mode is canceled, the sequential mode indicator and sequential mode gear selection indicator go off. To help maximize fuel economy, the engine automatically stops when the vehicle comes to a stop, depending on environmental and vehicle operating conditions. The indicator (green) comes on at this time.
The engine then restarts once the vehicle is about to move again, or depending on environmental and vehicle operating conditions, and the indicator (green) goes off.
