Default CAGS Skip Shift question

a vendor on the bay has a listing for a CAGS skip Shifter harness but it clearly lists
"This product does not eliminate the 1st to 4th shift light, NO bypass can."
Do all Skip Shift eliminators still displays the light on dash? I thought the plug harness eliminates it?

None of them keep the light from illuminating. They just simulate the solenoid on the lock out being connected, even though it cannot be activated.

The alert still comes on but you are now able to shift into 2nd even with that alert appearing. I do not think theres a way for it to not appear.

I rarely see the indicator illuminate. I usually drive outside of the CAGS parameters anyway. When CAGS does happen to catch me, my attention is usually on the road. If I am caught I just slide up into 3rd and carry on.

With all that torque and gearing you won't need the CAGS bypass nearly as much as it was needed on past cars. I loved it on my C5 but don't intend to get one for my new GS.

All it did was train me to shift at 2500 or more.
