@ArielPRDoes the use of a Pedal Commander will leave codes for the dealers to find and refuse warranty?
I know for a fact the Pedal Commander is not picked up / seen by the dealership's wiTech ll computer, that the tech connects the JL/JT with. There is no tell tale track record so to speak either.
Now, if you trigger a code with any throttle controller, and the tech sees there is a throttle related/code thrown, he won't know if it was an aftermarket throttle controller... but he may go poking around and discover the aftermarket throttle controller hooked up.... Now, you may have an issue .... For this reason, it is prudent to remove the throttle controller when you take the vehicle in for a code you caused to be thrown by incorrect use of your throttle controller.
In general it is probably best to remove the throttle controller if the JL is going in say for more then an oil change.. Only takes about 5 min to remove..
IF, you throw a code and take the JL into the dealer to get the code cleared....DO remove the throttle controller before you go in and do NOT, again do not, tell the dealer you have/used a throttle controller. They will not be able to see/ prove you were..
My thoughts exactly until I tried the throttle enhancer. Hell, EVERYONE'S thoughts. Sounds like it's not for you, but don't assume you can do the same thing with your foot - you can't. And...you sure can't do it with precision every time you operate the throttle.If I want the Diesel to surge, I simply increase the throttle 'till the turbo kicks in.
No idea, but I suspect not. FCA programed the throttle curve that way on purpose (EPA rating?). I can't imagine that they'd change it back.Has anyone received a new Jeep or taken theirs back to ensure it has the Service Bulletin 18-008-20 flashed to their PCU? Just read in a FB group that after that flash they would equate the takeoff of the vehicle to be that of Sport +4 of the Pedal Commander
@YFD_322OK so doing all the research is it safe to say that you can only throw a code on the pedal commander, or such if you change modes while driving and that’s it?
And the only difference between the pedal commander and the hikeit is the Bluetooth?
Please dig deeper as to why. I already treated myself months ago and haven't installed it yet. Going to give it a shot since I already own it and if I don't like it I will put it on the Mrs. Jeep which is an auto.Save your $. A throttle controller is a terrific addition IF you have an auto tranny, otherwise a waste of $.

Mike, I spent a few minutes trying to craft a response to your question and had trouble articulating. That said, you are, as Rhinebeck01 mentioned, in a perfect position to test between your Jeep and your wife's. After doing it a few times, I can change it out in about 90 seconds, so it'll be easy to swap back-and-forth. Give it a try - wife's Jeep first - and the answer will become clear. The short answer is that for manuals the skeptics are correct. You can just do it with your foot. On an automatic, it's a whole new ball game.Please dig deeper as to why.
