In the manual it states the 2nd gear start provides more traction when you are starting on ice or other slippery surfaces. The trans-axle will be in second gear when the vehicle begins to move. After starting in second gear, the vehicle will up-shift normally. This feature is only for improved traction only the road surface is slippery and is not intended for continuous use or when the vehicle is stuck in sand, mud, ice, snow or gravel. Press the switch to turn off the feature. Leave the switch off for normal road conditions. The switch is located on the driver's side, to the left of the steering column on the lower side of the dashboard you will notice a switch to turn the 2nd gear start on or off.
