Hi guys!!

i own a 1991 w201 1.8 and im having problems with the kickdown on the car. as i drive in 4th gear and wish to accelerate rapidly i hit the kickdown button beneath the accelerator pedal and nothing happens.

Ive changed the kick down button and tested it to make sure it works but the transmission still isnt down shiffting when the button is pressed.

anyone know what the problem is or could be??

Many Thanks!!
