Dodge Challenger 2008-Current
1. Attached is a picture from the Chrysler Service Manual showing the location of the Skip-Shift Solenoid (S-S-E) (Pic. 1, Item 1) and the Reverse Lock-Out Solenoid (Pic. 1, Item 2).
Notice that the S-S-E. points towards the drivers side of the car (and is angled slightly downward towards the ground at about a 45° angle), while the Reverse Lock-Out Solenoid points forward and is parallel to the driveline (BOTH have the same shape/color electrical connector). Make SURE to install the S-S-E into the correct (points to drivers-side) solenoid.
2. The vehicle wiring at the area of the Skip-Shift Solenoid is tie-strapped LOOSELY to a "lug" just below the S-S-Solenoid (on the left side of the transmission) and has been installed so that there is a "loop" of tie-strap with an opening that you can slip the "resistor" end of the S-S-E through. Makes for a pretty clean installation.
3. Then, install the dummy-plug on the S-S-Solenoid to prevent road debris from getting into the solenoid's electrical connector.
NOTE: If after you install the S-S-E you have any trouble getting your car into Reserve you have installed the S-S-E into the wrong connector. Switch the plug to the other (correct) connector and your Challenger will perform as designed yet without having the annoying S-S-E any more.
