Electronic range selection (ERS) allows you to put a range on the gears available in your automatic transmission. If you are in “Drive,” for instance, your vehicle can use every gear. ERS allows you to set a limit for the highest gear that you can use. To switch into ERS mode, simply move your automatic shifter from “Drive” to one of the gear numbers. This will limit your vehicle to that gear, and all the gears below it (i.e. if you place the automatic shifter at “3,” then the vehicle can only use gears one, two, and three).
