I traded a 5 speed mustang gt for this truck so its habit, and we dont have auto stick, wish we did? Auto stick will down shift back to first when you stop...You have an automatic... you need to take your hand off the shifter OR use the auto stick like it's designed to be used; they are not going to change it becuase you have a compulsion to keep your hand on the shifter like it's a standard.
Bin Dar....Dun Dat!I always ride with my hand on the shifter and keep engaging the manual shift, Dodge should move that button or have a way to lock it. Anyone else found a fix for this. I guess you could break the wiring with a switch?
^ What GTYankee said ^ - I'm learning to control this habit though!I have the full floor console
My right arm is always resting on the console & my hand is on the shifter, it is very comfortable. I also shift without meaning to, if it only dropped one gear it wouldn't be so bad, but sometimes it really drops several gears & the engine over revs, embarrassing

I was in no way trying to 'lay-eth the snack down' so if it was taken that way I do apologize. I was trying to put it in simple terms, this isn't a stick shift and as such shouldn't be expected to behave the same way. The shifters do have a lock on them, but they are designed to shift into neutral to allow for neutral braking.wow, nothing like a late night smack down.
Kind of, but different. In the Ram, you can manually select the highest gear it will shift to, but only if the computer considers your selection to be safe.......As for the auto stick, do the 4th gens not have that option? I was under the impression they did, guess I spend too much time with the lx crowd, I just assumed it did since almost every lx model had the feature.
