    I had a hell of a time getting into temp check mode in my 2012 truck. I think I ended up waiting a bit longer than 2 seconds in N before doing the 6x shift thing. Maybe 3 seconds, something like that

    Give that a try and see if that works for you.

    Honestly though if you have a means of monitoring the temps via OBDII that is way easier. And if your ambient temps are mid 70s I would not expect it to take longer than 20 mins.

    You may want to block off the transmission cooler with a piece of cardboard.

    Even when the truck is sitting still, the fan pulls some air through it, cooling the fluid.

    Granted, not much, but every degree helps...

    I did a DAF when it was about 10° out one time. I waited over 45 minutes for the temp light to come on. Sometimes you have to be patient

    I did a DAF today. No issues....just like the other times. However, I decided to pull my jumper adapter as soon as it went into check mode. Previously I had just left it in the whole time. The dash stops flashing but it's still in check mode.

    Old fluid looked great, BTW.
