    So more often than not on my transmission paddles when I press the right side the engine will not shift up and in fact shifts down. Have to shut the car off to get it go back to automatic mode. I have had the transmission software patch done like 6 weeks ago.

    Anyone else seeing this?

    Maybe the clockspring between the steering wheel and the column is screwed up.

    3 choices first 2 haven't helped, yes you are the 5th or so with this
    1. Clockspring
    2. paddles
    3. harness between paddles and clockspring which may be part of steering wheel

    You said press on it. Are you pressing on the + paddle from behind?
