Ugh. I didn't realize this. Glad to have the heads up before I got stuck in traffic. :-(

I will undoubtedly be looking into how to over-ride or program it out.
Skip Shift is more than an irritant, could be a safety issue. Finally warm enough (for a day) to get under the car and install a Skip Shift Eliminator. Works great. Made a How To Install and included how to jack up the Corvette high enough for access for those new to DIY for the Vette.

I've read that the version of the skip-shift that is found on the C-7 is not as intrusive as was the case for previous generations. In your opinion; True or not?
I bought a CAGS (skip shift) eliminator kit from Zip Products... This kit includes two plugs. One to cap the solenoid (for weather protection) and one for the end of the harness that used to go to the solenoid (this one contains the resistor that simulates the solenoid for pacifying the computer). Not sure why the two plugs on the kit shown above are connected by the red wires... they aren't really required. Have not installed yet (too cold in garage, here in Wisconsin), assume all that will need to be done is to wire up the newly 'plugged' harness loose end, so it doesn't flop around and get on the exhaust pipe.

Thanks Autoxal. Please let us know how this works out once your weather improves, and you can test it out. For $20, nice mod, and so simple to do.
Hi, will a CAGS unit from a manual C6 work on the C7? I think it will so will plan to take it off my 2010 when traded in and let the next owner deal with the hassle!!! I also hope that the C6 NPP exhaust key fob bypass system I have will also work when my C7 Coupe when it arrives in (hopefully) April.
I just bought one from SLP for $20, it said it worked on C5, C6, C7 and many others. It's tuned out on my ZO6, but tuning your C7 could void your warranty.
