Automatic Transmission Reset

Howdy Dubbers!
I was wondering what the procedure is to reset the transmission computer.
It's been taking forever to shift lately, and when I'm going around 40 on a city street, it'll stay in 3rd most of the time, unless I gun it, then it'll got into 4th.
I remember it has something to do with pressing the petal, and holding the key on start or something like that...

I just looked in the bentley and this is what they say to do:
1. Switch on the ignition but do not start engine.
2. Push the accelerator pedal all the way to the floor and hold it there
for a minimum of 5 seconds.
Be sure the floor mats do not prevent the accelerator pedal from being completely depressed.
3. Release the accelerator pedal and switch off the iginition.
Hope this helps.
