Updated PCM software can help if transmission stays in second gear on Mitsubishi Raider

Problem Description and Possible Solution

If the automatic transmission intermittently stays in second gear (will not shift into a higher gear), restarting the engine may fix the condition temporarily. Updated software for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) can solve this concern.

2006 Mitsubishi Raider Durocross access cab, 2 wheel drive, 4.7 v8. Occasionally stays in 2nd gear after starting (approx. 3 times a month). I can stop and turn the engine off and sometimes that works or I can continue to drive slowly and the transmission will start working after a few blocks. I have been to multiple dealers several times and they put my truck on their machine, charge me and tell me nothing is wrong. It has been doing this for the 3 years and 4 months I have owned the truck.
Started a rough shift when the trans got wet at a car wash last year now it did the stay in 2nd gear I disconnected the batt. And it started shifting fine
