Cvt beeping at you in manual mode

Had something happen to me today for the first time. Note that the weather was cold and had a few inches of fresh snow on the ground.

While driving in manual mode cvt (both sport and reg) sometimes the car would not "shift" into 2nd with traction control was disabled. The car would just beep and not "shift" out of first.

Any thoughts about this or has this happened to anyone? Wondering if it was because of traction control disabled.

right from the new car features book from scion.

If the vehicle speed or engine speed exceeds or goes below a preset level in response to the driver's downshift operation request, changing the shift range will be prohibited. In this case, the buzzer in the combination meter will sound to alert the driver.

will keep looking to see if anything else turns up.
