hi all,
AL4 AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

autoadaptive or "normal" (no buttons pressed):
...
...

"Sport" (S button pressed):

"Snow" (* button pressed):

this program is suited to driving on low adherence ground. In drive, this means
that either first gear or first and second gears are no longer available and gears
are changed down less frequently using a specific set of changing laws.
Furthermore, in the imposed positions 1, 2, 3, the "Snow" set of laws are used
which take into account the restrictions relating to the chosen imposed position.

Note: Every time the ignition is switched off then on again, the ECU
automatically switches to the "normal program" configuration.
I want to use "snow mode" always.. if the car is stoped and then start again, switch to "normal" mode..

how do i fix its snow mode.. i dont want to press the snow mode button every time..

As much as I know, you can't do this because the ECU resets the mode each time the ignition is switched on.

Have you looked in the Auto box options in lexia to find what you need? If its not there, then, its not there.
