Installing a CAGS disable device
Many people don't like the forced 1-4 shifts in a manual Corvette or F-body car. A common upgrade is a CAGS disable device. They vary, but the installation principles are as shown here.
NOTE: This kit will prevent the CAGS solenoid from engaging but the "1 to 4" light
on the dash will still illuminate when skip shift conditions are meet.
The following tools were used to make the modification.
- Jack and jackstands or lift
Do the Job
WARNING: Installation of this product will require that the installer come in
close contact with the exhaust system and transmission case. These items can become
extremely hot when the vehicle is driven. Allow vehicle time to cool before attempting
to install CAGS Eliminator. Use appropriate safety precautions and equipment when
installing this product.
- Disconnect your Corvette's negative battery cable from the battery. The stock cable
color is black, but you should check the markings on the battery to be certain.
- To gain access to the CAGS solenoid, raise your Corvette as directed by the GM
Shop/Owners Manual. Be sure to follow all safety precautions and use jack stands to
support the vehicle.
- The CAGS solenoid is located on the drivers' side of the transmission towards the top
and rear of the transmission. The wiring harness connector is white and blue in color.
- Gently lift the locking clip and unplug the connector from the solenoid. Make sure
the connector and solenoid are clean. Plug the black end of the CAGS Eliminator into
the wiring harness. You should hear a snap/click sound when the wiring harness is
completely seated. Plug the white end of the CAGS Eliminator into the CAGS solenoid. You
should hear a snap/click sound when the connector is completely seated.
- Lower Corvette according to GM Shop Manual procedures.
- Re-connect negative battery cable and test-drive car.
