    Taurus SHO/MKS Ecoboost gear indicator in dash.

    When using the paddle shifter or when in Sport mode, the current gear will display on the dash. This is not something set using Forscan. People buying aftermarket tunes says the tuner is setting it up.

    I can't find in the settings using HPTuners. Can anybody share how to do it?

    Thanks!

    I don't have VCM Editor in front of me, but it should be under Transmission -> General

    There is a table that has shift indicators for the different modes. You set them to 1 to enable or 0 to disable (IIRC). I found whatever Sport mode was set, and used that for Drive. It worked on my Explorer and my Fusion Sport.

    Thanks for the reply. Here's what I see (I also looked elsewhere, but can't find a shift indicator table anywhere). I also don't see any tables for Drive vs Sport modes.

    The next tab "Shift General" only has Gear Ratios.

    Any suggestion on the way to request this be added? I don't see a place on this forum for requests.

    Thanks again.

    Found this in the tune repository. It's from a 2018 F-150. Looks like what I need.
