I was wondering about this too. I'd like to reset mine. Maybe it's a waste of time, but I thought it might be a good idea since I was not the original owner of the car.

You guys crack me up. You don't need to reset the adaptations if you have owned the car for any length of time. Once you have been driving it for a few days, it's as 'adapted' as it's going to get. There is no need to obsess about clearing out that store run the previous owner made in 2009 in which he drove like a total puss.

LOL exactly! The car adapts to your driving habits. So if you're driving like grandma for a few days it will adapt to that and a few days later if you start driving like you're racing to a booty call it will adapt to that. The adaptations change depending on your driving habits.

not entirely true........my service manager reset my adaptations due to the fact that my trans was jerking when coming to a stop.i didnt do it because i want it to learn my driving style....MY SA was even the one who suggested to do the reset.

Okay, so there was something wrong with your car. If it is functioning normally, the adaptation process is just a "rolling" adjustment of the shift maps based on how the driver typically drives. There is no voodoo involved as so many seem to think. How the car was driven last year, last month or even last week has no bearing on how the transmission will perform today.

I thought the adaptation was putting the key on ON then pressing the gas pedal for 30 seconds, release and wait for 2min. If its software I'll ask my SA to update then.

maybe its not your transmission, bulletin SI B 24 06 06

This Service Information bulletin supersedes SI B24 06 06 dated August 2006.
designates changes to this revision
SUBJECT
A Slight Bump is Felt Shortly after the Vehicle Comes to a Stop
MODEL
E85 3.0 and 3.0si with the GA6HP19Z transmission produced up to 07/2006
E90, E91 All with the GA6HP19Z transmission produced up to 09/2006
SITUATION
A slight one-time bump is felt shortly after the vehicle comes to a stop.
CAUSE
This is due to the design concept of "NIC", or Neutral Idle Control. This gearbox feature uncouples the torque converter whenever the vehicle is stationary, gearbox oil temperature is between 20C and 120C, and the brakes are applied. By disconnecting the torque converter the load on the engine is reduced to a minimum. Please explain this feature and its operation to the customer.
CORRECTION
For the E85, revised EGS software is available with Progman 23.0 or higher.
For the E90, E91 revised EGS software is expected in a future release of Progman. Until that time, on a customer complaint basis only, this feature can be deactivated as described in the procedure below.
PROCEDURE
E85 On a customer complaint basis only, reprogram the EGS module with Progman 23.0 or higher. It is not possible to deactivate this feature using the retrofit option on the E85.
E90, E91 - On a customer complaint basis only, perform the Retrofit - "Converter lockup clutch" using Progman 23.0 (Target Data status: E89x-06-09-520) or higher. Follow the "Retrofit" procedures as outlined in SI B09 05 01.
WARRANTY
For the appropriate defect code and labor operations please refer to the KSD system.
