Great forum. Just discovered it even thouth I drive a 2001 5sp, owned since 01.

Has anyone else had a down-shift indicator not work, even though it illuminates when the whole panel lights up at start-up? Mine has never turned on while driving, even though I have gone as far as almost stalling out in high gear just to see if it could work.

I had the opportunity to replace the LED recently due to half of the "Assist" section "going stange" by turning all yellow! Still, that had no impact on the shift arrow working.

If you climb a steep hill in 5th gear at full throttle below 1500 RPM i'm sure you should see the downshift light.

Yea, the only time I've seen it on was when my mom was doing 30mph in 5th up a hill. During normal driving, you'll never see the light.

Yes, seeing the downshift light is relatively rare. But I *do* see it when I'm driving in fifth gear through the Ozark Mountains. The grades there are sometimes steep enough to make the engine drag, necessitating the lower, stronger gear.
