Chevrolet Captiva Owners Manual: Manual Mode

Electronic Range Select (ERS) Mode

ERS mode allows you to choose the top-gear limit of the transmission and the vehicle's speed while driving downhill or towing a trailer.

The vehicle has an electronic shift position indicator within the instrument panel cluster. When using the ERS mode a number will display in place of the D (Drive), indicating the current gear range that has been selected.

Manual Mode

To use this feature:

  1. Move the shift lever to M(Manual).
  2. Press the plus/minus button located on the shift lever, to increase or decrease the gear range available.

When you shift from D (Drive) to M(Manual), the transmission will shift to a pre-determined lower gear range. The highest gear available for this pre-determined range is displayed in the DIC. See Driver Information Center (DIC) on page 5-24. The number displayed in the DIC is the highest gear that the transmission will be allowed to operate in. This means that all gears below that number are available. For example, when 4 (Fourth) is shown, 1 (First) through 4 (Fourth) gears are automatically shifted by the vehicle. The transmission will not shift into 5 (Fifth) until the + (Plus) button is used or you shift back into D (Drive).

While in M(Manual), the transmission will prevent shifting to a lower gear range if the engine speed is too high. You have a brief period of time to slow the vehicle.

If vehicle speed is not reduced within the time allowed, the lower gear range shift will not be completed. You must further slow the vehicle, then press the − (Minus) button to the desired lower gear range.

Automatic Engine Grade Braking is not available when the ERS is active. It is available in D (Drive).

While using the ERS, cruise control can be used.
