I do believe that unless you have a 401A with digital dash, it's not possible. Possibly something can be done in Forscan, but it's just a guess.

Yeah, I have it in the Mustang, but not the Charger. It basically keeps me from using the paddle shifters, even though the ZF is more responsive than the 10R80. All the responsiveness in the world doesn't make up for not knowing what gear I'm in. It probably does a better job than me either way.

You can do it on the digital dash, but it's not intuitive at all. I tried switching to rpm, to watch exactly what it is at idle, and couldn't find the damn setting. Ha ha.

I had a prior 2016 with the 6R80 and analog dash cluster; when Trans selector is in D or S and the user is not using the paddles, the actual numeric trans gear is not present in the cluster.

The same is true with the 10R80 and analog cluster.

Most 6R80/10R80 owners want to see the trans numeric gear value all the time, not just when paddle shifting.

Can you post a vid of your cluster to show the actual gear numbers are not only present in both trans selections D and S, but remain in the cluster, regardless of gear, WITHOUT touching or using the paddles? Meaning the car is completely auto shifting in D or S without user intervention of the shifts and the numeric gear value stays present in the cluster...

The gear values will not display or remain if the car is auto shifting when trans selector is in D or S.


Yes, for a 6R80 or 10R80 w/analog cluster, the numeric gear values will be present and remain in the cluster display only IF the user has touched the paddles and is manually shifting.

I had my tuner turn this on all the time for me. Prior to, would only see it when the paddle shifters were in use.
