Does anyone know of a work-around for this

I have two vehicles with the 3.2L flat six(s&sl). They will not shift until warm(smog thing).This was not on the 300SDL, these are 96 &97 models. I assume all 90 series and up do this. If you disconnect the abs they will shift immediately. I had rather find a safer work-around than that. Any suggestions welcomed.

I suspect this is a firmware issue which means someone would have to program around the symptom. Its going to be more work than its worth.
