Power button just changes the shift points, so it will hold a gear a bit longer. It is useful if you are getting on the interstate or towing.

The winter button you can activate when you are at a complete stop in D. It will put you in 3rd gear and will turn off at 23MPH. Doing this will give you very little torque and is great in snow when starting from a stop.

I have a 2wd Amigo and use the winter button all the time in the winter. It basically stops my wheels spinning in the snow from a stop.

I just change my user namee to reflect the new car.....but thanks for the information on the switches. I also found out tonight about the 2 different coils for cylinders 1-5 and coil #6. I just got a P0300 twice today so I am very suspicious of this. I suspect that someone did a tune up and didn't put the coils back in the right place. :jerking:
