On the weekend out-of-town trip got two transmission lights at different times so I stopped, turned it off, waited awhile and turned it back on to clear the light. Drives and shifts fine otherwise. Will get it back to BIP to see what the codes say.

The code says traction control/tire issue so BIP says the difference in tire diameter is suspect - 255/35-18 in front and 275/35-18 in the rear; the rears are about worn down so going to change out the rears to 265/35-18 in hopes that the computer will like it.

The Michelin Super Sport 265 rears are now on the car. So far, a few brief blasts down on ramps have not triggered the transmission light so I am still hopeful. Another update after a trip.

The shorter tires seem to help but does not eliminate the transmission light from coming on but now less than 50% of the occasions where it came on before. BIP says another tire closer to the 255/35/18 fronts appears to be the route to go or turn off the DSC button all the time. I will try the DSC button off route to see what happens.

Anybody else having this type of problem?
