Auto Tranny Manual Shifting Mode

So my dealer demonstrated that you can put the transmission stick in the drive position either to the right or to the left.

Right is full auto. To the left you can switch gears manually.

But I never asked him how to switch gears manually cause I thought it would be in the manual for the vehicle. I can't find it in the documentation that came with the Jeep.

So I am wondering how you physically switch gears manually on the auto tranny.

I don't have and auto, when when you move it to the side I think just tap up or down to upshift or downshift.

Electronic Range Select (ERS, or manual shift) can be done at a stop or at any speed. Tapping the shift lever to the left (-) will downshift the transmission, activate ERS mode, display the current gear in the instrument cluster, and maintain that gear as the top available gear (it can shift down automatically, but, won't shift to a gear higher than what is selected). Once in ERS mode, tapping the shift lever to the left (-) or right (+) will change the top available gear.
To exit ERS mode, press and hold the shift lever to the right (+) until “D” is once again displayed in the shift lever position indicator in the instrument cluster.

The 2012 auto's have slighly different (and better IMO) programming...those units were made in Germany. But yeah, tap right or left to shift gears.
