f. Transmission Control. When operating the A3 configuration of

the location of the transmission controller used on the A3 configured
The A3 configuration transmission controller provides the

vehicle (PV) position, and a steering lock (SL) position.
To control the transmission of the A2 configuration, the driver uses
a range selector.
The A2 range selector is located in the same
approximate location as the A3 transmission controller in the APC.
The A2 configuration range selector provides the capability to select
four forward ranges, a neutral range, and a reverse range.
