English term or phrase: under-drive solenoid
Transmission part. I know "overdrive" but have never seen "under-drive". Could it mean downshifting solenoid?

solénoïde rétrograde / de rétrogradation / d'inversion
Explanation:
J'ai trouvé cette explication du fonctionnement de l'Underdrive Solenoid: "When the vehicle is brought to a stop, the underdrive solenoid is momentarily pulsed on, sending a small burst of pressure to the solenoid switch valve. This burst is supposed to place the solenoid switch valve into the low/reverse apply circuit operating position."
Je m'appuie donc sur l'explication de notre collègue ("commande inversée") et sur ce texte pour ces suggestions...
Bonne chance!
