I have a 2020 3.0 diesel Rubi. I installed the Tazer mini no problem last night. I have only adjusted the tire pressure so far, but today after a short drive I noticed the cooling fan at a higher rev & a smell of a heated engine that I have not noticed before. I Checked afterwards and made sure I had not changed any other settings and none were changed.

I’m not sure if anyone else has run into this with the diesel or not, so I’m looking for a reason for the elevated cooling fan rev/noise.
more than likely your jeep was going through a regen when you happened to shut it off

I cannot get my DRL to stop activating the turn signal light out warning. It worked perfectly until I had my radio software updated by the dealership (which basically reset all my tazer settings). I’ve got all the other settings to work again except the DRL/turn signals.
Setting:
DRLtype: USA DRL loc: dedica DRL DROP: NO LED FTrn: Yes.

software TZ JL: 11.1.8

I have toggled each setting individually off/on and did a full reboot each time. No matter how many 5 min sleep cycles I give it, it still displays the message on start up. Sometime during my drive it will act normal for 2-3 sweeps when the signal is on, but then it gives me the error again and begins to hyperflash. Does this for both signals individually and sometimes will display that both are out at the same time. I have had my tazer for a year or so and never had any issue until now.

Any suggestions?
Yes, try this. Go into your TazerJL settings with engine off, then two start button presses until the start button light is on Run.

Enter the TazerJL's Lighting settings and find the Front Led Trn option, which should currently be on. Turn that setting off, then on again and while on that screen, put your left blinker on and let it fast blink until it finally blinks at a normal rate. Reboot and power cycle.

Now repeat all of that, except put the right blinker on until the fast blink stops and the right blinker flashes at a normal rate. Reboot and Power Cycle.

If one gets out of line later, just repeat this for that side.

I think I'm describing this correctly, but let me know if it isn't working and I'll check it on mine again.

Hopefully that will take care of it.

Short answer is no. When enabling turn signal DRLs on a Sport, the turn signal circuit is activated - not the parking light circuit. This is why the DRLs are amber and not white. I went through the same thing when I installed my switchbacks. There's currently no way around this. And, the turn signals will always be yellow when activated. That's the point of the switchbacks.
That sucks because it would have been nice to have the white stay on with the drls during the day as well. Sucks that it only turns on with the headlights.

If using American adventure labs LED DRL kit, Did you try the setting “DRL: dedicated“

I don’t know if It’s different on the sport model but on my rubicon if the settings to “DRL: turn“ it would stay on as amber. Dedicated was the only way to get it to stay white and then switch to amber when the signal is activated.

DRL on a Sport/Sport S doesn't work this way for the reason explained above. Enabling DRL on a Sport/Sport S activates the turn signal circuit. Sahara and Rubicon models have separate DRL and turn signals.

just installed the Tazer Mini in our JLURD and have read the last twenty pages, still haven’t found an answer to this question;

‘What exactly does a partial reboot do/accomplish and why/when is it necessary to perform?”

Also, having read the instructions and watched the Quadratec install video, I don’t see where it says to turn the engine on when performing the two sleep cycles after a change to the settings. Does one have to turn the engine on or simply the ignition (two pushes of the start button)?

Thanks in advance,

Always do a FULL REBOOT after doing any Tazer JL settings/setting changes or risk your JL's battery(s) becoming depleted or partially depleted.

Some but not all Tazer JL settings require two sleep/wake cycles. For your sleep/wake cycles you do not need to start the JL's engine ..... Read instructions carefully so you know which features set require sleep/wake cycles.

The quickest way to do the sleep cycles thing, is to turn the ignition to off after doing your settings, etc.... Now, open the driver's door and then close the driver's door. Now, wait about 60 seconds and AFTER the dash goes dark, open the driver's door and then close the driver's door. Now, wait about 60 seconds til the dash goes dark, again ...... DONE, You have completed the two sleep cycles.

You never have the engine running, to answer your ?. Ignition ON but engine NOT running.

-By the way, I myself always would do a Full Reboot after do setting changes.. always..

Would it be possible to have the front windows auto down if you press remote unlock twice quickly, thus would be great in the south and south west in the summer.

For me it's my rear view camera (the original one) which was no longer working after I took over my Jeep.

A complete reboot and my camera works again, i.e. the image is displayed again on the screen

It’s pairs Your Taser with your Jeep. Think of Bluetooth pairing your phone with a device. When? Every time you make a change

Per the instructions, it actually resets certain dash startup items.....the question is why is that function available, and why/when is it needed.

There is a separate marrying procedure (and un-marrying), this is not when it pairs.
