Would cleaning this board improve "Auto Stick" response? I have a 2007 and Auto Stick is pretty picky on upshifts, I really have to tap it to the right pretty hard to get it to upshift.

My coworker has a 2010 and he can upshift with his pinky in Auto Stick, so smooth compared to mine.

Seems like cleaning the board might help with the connections, anyone care to chime in? Thanks in advance!

My guess is - it should help. Look at the picture downshift area is black "triangle" zone, in to the down -left at the picture. Upshift zone is separated squared zone at the top side of the picture.

However i didn't noticed huge improvement in autostick mode after cleaning.

I'm going to do this TODAY. This is probably a stupid question but what's with the static again? Am I going to get shocked if I don't clean it properly? Obviously I'm not an electrician....

Another happy customer here! I did this last weekend and the CEL issues are gone. I did it in my garage, touched a few metal pieces of the truck and tool box to ground out any static electricity I may have had no me and then pulled the contraption apart to clean it. I did the actual cleaning on my wooden work bench so I didn't have any static to worry about.

Don't bother too much about it
static is an issue during extremely dry summer and winter times.
For that dump spring times you are quite safe, unless you are in Sahara or Baja

so for you guys that did this clean, has it worked for all for all of you? and how frequently were you guys getting the CEL and symptoms? cause right now my symptoms will happen every ohhh 2 days. so im wondering if its the ESM that needs to be replaced or if cleaning this shift assembly should fix it.
