    chances are you already have the eliminator because if you didnt you would know what it doesl. what it does is blocks 2 and 3 gear if you rev 1st over 2 grand. therefore forces you into 4th gear. this was done for insurance reasons among things. the light will always come on if you have the eliminator or not.

    under the car, look for a plug on the left side (driver) of the trans. There will be a plug in the trans to nothing and another wire near it with a plug on the end, should be wire-tied up to the harness or frame...

    the cleaner way to tell is if you can shift to second while the 'skip shift' light is on, then it's been done already. If the 'skip-shift' light stays on all of the time, then it was unplugged without an eliminator...

    i used to hate it when i first got my car, but after a while it didnt bother me anymore. when you really need to go through all the gears (like if youre racing someone) it turns itself off once you hit 3k rpms. otherwise for just cruising around town it really does help save some gas. friends of mine with other types of manual cars say they often go from 1st to 3rd or 1st to 4th to save on gas during city driving too.

    Keep in mind that this could also have been done with a tuner program such as HP Tuners. My brother has it for his Grand Am and it will also work on our cars. I'm thinking of getting one of my own. It is much tidier to program it out than to have parts attached that stick out like a sore thumb.

    I believe that if it were programed out via the ECM, the light would not function as well.
