yes, and according to the parts guy at a local stealership, that's the "kickdown switch." i always assumed kickdown was the point on the throttle where there's a little more resistance. i never thought there was an actual "switch" as well. so i guess maybe when you hit resistance on the pedal OR when the DME detects the switch has been actuated, you've hit "kickdown" and it does a shift.

yes, kickdown switch (#6 on the diagram):

"Speed has never killed anyone, suddenly becoming stationary... that's what gets you."
