But not at start up right? So like if I'm outside of the jeep and hit remote start, it will always be electric and not ICE?Seriously, you can force the gas engine on by switching from ”Drive” to the manual “AutoStick” mode.
I know that doesn’t help you while you’re in ”Park” or while backing out of your driveway, but it can allow you to force the engine on shortly after take-off!
Wondering if there is a way to force the engine on when I start up, instead of starting in electric/silent.
Maybe via Tazer?
Just in case I get an exhaust and have one of those days where I can hear that bad boy purr on start upJust curious as to why you would want this. For a more conventional car starting feel? Would the jeep even know to switch back to battery-only afterwards?
My (2.0 e-torque, fake hybrid) jeep seems to have a slight phantom parasitic draw, so basically runs the generator full power every drive.
If you left something like a dash cam plugged into the always-on rear 12V, I'd bet that the engine replenishment would activate each time.

There actually is stuff out there and will be an option for us but was seeing if the old fashion way workedI understand.
But we must all gird our loins for the soon-to-be-future where starting an automobile means hearing only the high-pitched whine of capacitors charging up.
Is there such a thing as a blow-off capacitor? Also, I see loud capacitor mods in the future.
Nice. So maybe there is a way to disable to hood sensor or make it appear to the system that the hood is open to force a ICE ignition? But then would need a way to change it back so we can use the hybrid system later on, without having to get out of the Jeep to fixDiscovered this today when giving a jump start.
